This is for Trademasters who are active Market/Export traders, where you can meet, add friends, talk and do Real Time Trading. Since there is no in game chat. The old threads are over 50 pages now, so here is a clean one.
This is not a begging thread for pearls and map pieces, so please read the whole first post and see how we work here, thank you.
No Begging or Bartering for rares, go to the Trade Request forums for that.
This Thread is for helping each other NOT helping so you get something back.
We try to keep a light, and thankful tone here that encourages a fun "room". We will not tolerate bashing, begging, or rudeness!!! Everyone here will bend over backwards to help you if you keep this in mind!
Please also read the FAQ on the Paradise Bay website or Paradise Bay Wikia to answer questions about when certain Bazaar recipes, crops or trees become available.

How We Work Here:
For easier transaction please go into your forum signature and fill in the following in your signature (via the forums User Control Panel), put the following if you can:
Game Center ID:
Alternate Name: (if your GC ID doesn't match your Apple Account Name)
Note: In game some times your name will be the name on your Apple Account and not the Game Center ID (my game fluctuates between the two), so you may want to show your alternate name too or rename your self in the apple account. Please do not ignore this it is really hard to find you if your GC ID isn't showing and with 500ish neighbors on top of that. Feel free to censor for privacy by having initials or only first few letters of the name.
Wish Lists: Note that they may not be filled, so do not expect it. If you are short map pieces for your next island list what you are missing just for that one island and mention which island its for, let's try 1 at a time for each of us. If for Pearls/Stones for a recipe list what you are missing just for that recipe and mention which recipe, let's try 1 at a times for each of us. It's fun to see WHAT we are contributing to, that is why we ask it that way. But if you like just pearls, map pieces or axes, etc in general feel free to add it like that if that is what you'd like.
Shopping Lists: Feel free to post in here with a shopping list. Some of us will try to fill them if we can but we may not be able to. Please do not be demanding, or upset if your shopping list doesn't get filled! Remember we are pulling from our stock as well, and we may or may not have it! If you ask for things please try to fill others' shopping lists too. This is a community, so let's try to help each other.
PLEASE NOTE: We have added SAP and CACAO products to the list of "rares". They are harder to get and keep on hand. Everyone above level 40 is struggling with these products. Please show respect to one another and do not BEG for these items. Make it known ONCE that are looking for them. And if anyone can help, they will volunteer.

How to Add neighbours via Game Center:
Go to the App that looks like this: Game Center
Click the Green Request button. Click the + sign on the right side of the left column. Add the user's Game Center ID and Click Send.
How to visit a Neighbour's Island:
Click the Bottom Blue Button on the Right side (make sure you have Neighbors first). Swipe/Scroll to the desired Neighbors and click. From here you can explore their island, goto their marketplace and buy, or collect karma points by clicking on the karma animals.
For doing a dock trade, go to your neighbor's market, and message them to let them know you are there and ready! Try to make the message quick (this is why we use acronyms like RIYM) so your game doesn't refresh, and then stand ready to collect when they post the item! A little tip - with the bigger world market, and the new lag time, it is best to open and close your friend's market repeatedly to keep it close to real time, and this way you won't lose your item to someone on the world market! Buy your trade item, and then please come back to the forum and thank that person!
Many of us use the buying a single cotton as a signal that we are there and ready. This can really help so there's no confusion as to whether the person on the other side is ready or not!
If you are helping with Seals they'll be an Orange Exclamation Mark beside their name. Then go to their Island, then their Seals and Click the Dive Spot that is marked with an exclamation mark.
Also I set up a Paradise Wikia: Paradise Bay Wiki
Feel free to contribute, I am with out wifi for a while but I have started it but if anyone is ambitious I am sure it help. It comes with a chat, but I don't know if it is mobile friendly: Chat
