"Don't think you can barter with me like I'm one of those damned shopkeepers."
Guard[src]

Merchants can be found in almost every city and town in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Most are open from about 8am to 8pm, but some merchants are available all day. The following is a list of merchants and their locations. 

Before you begin it should be noted that merchants inventory seem to run off of an item generator. This basically means, each separate save or character created from that save will have completely different inventory every single new game. For example, in one save, a shopkeeper may sell Fortify Smithing, alchemy and Two Handed enchanted equipment, but not One handed, Speech or Magicka equipment. And on a brand new save, exactly the same merchant may sell One handed, Speech and Magicka equipment and not sell Smithing, Alchemy or Two handed.

Merchant TrainersEdit

Some merchants offer training services. This can be useful since the gold paid to them for their training is added to their inventory for trading, allowing players to get their gold back after training by selling items to the trainer.

A list of merchant trainers in Skyrim:

TriviaEdit

  • If enough of Merchant's possessions are stolen, they may hire Thugs to "teach you a lesson".
  • A spouse is also a merchant. After marrying them, they open a store (it's not an actual place, they sell things from their home) and the Dragonborn may buy items from them.
  • If a merchant lives in their store and you go beyond the counter to their room, they will follow you, making stealing harder.
  • The Dremora Merchant can be summoned with the Black Market power which is learned in Untold Legends. He has 2,000 gold and he often sells Daedric weapons and armor

NotesEdit

  • (*) Tonilia is available as a Merchant after joining the Thieves Guild. Some of the other fences are available only after completing specific missions for the Guild. Fences' gold depends on the progress made in the Thieves Guild. They will have 4,000 each once all missions are complete.
  • (**) One merchant will appear in The Ragged Flagon after each special job for the Thieves Guild to spread their influence across Skyrim.
  • (***) Members of the Dawnguard and the Volkihar Clan will only sell their goods to the Dragonborn if he/she is a member of their respective faction
  • (****) Majni will only sell his goods to the Dragonborn if he/she is a Werewolf.

BugsEdit

  •  PC   360    PS3  Merchant's Inventory will reset if the Dragonborn attacks them, then loads a save immediately prior to attacking. (Attacking then using a Calm spell won't work.)
  •  PC   360   Loading a save will not revert Merchant's Inventory.
    • Solution: Make a save, then attack the Merchant and reload the game. This method does not work with spouse.
  •  PS3   Reverse pickpocket can allow merchants base gold supply to be raised. This has worked at the Riverwood Trader, getting the base gold up to 10,000 - however the same method failed when applied to merchants in Whiterun.
  •  PS3    360   Rare issue where selling to merchants yields no gold after buying a large value of gold from them.
