What Is Trading In Minecraft

Trading is an interaction between the players and the villager’s.
It is the best way to earn Emeralds because you already know that the Emerald Ore are the rarest ore in Minecraft.
It can help you earn a lot of Emerald, Armors, Tools, Enchanted Book, Treasure Maps and so on.

How To Trade With Villagers In Minecraft

To trade with a villager, you need to find it. Villagers can be found in villages of Minecraft.
Sometimes, the Villages are near the spawn place and maybe if it’s not close to you then you need to find it.
In my opinion there are two ways that can help you find a village in Minecraft:

Village By Exploration

This method is a little time-consuming but still it’s a great way to find a village.

Also, if you play on the 1.16 Update then the chances are more because after the update, the villages are huge and locate near to each other.
To find a village while doing exploration, you should focus on some points to increase the chances.
Here’re the tips to find a village in Minecraft:
Always find them in right biomes — plains, desert biomes, savanna, taiga, and snowy tundra. In Bedrock Edition, they also found in snowy taiga, snowy taiga hills biomes, sunflower plains, and taiga hills. — be sure to find them in the following biomes.
Always use horse to explore the world because it’s a time-consuming task and may take even an hour.
Always go in a straight path from your shelter. So, you don’t get confused about coming back to the shelter.

Village By Command

This method includes using a command to locate the village.

/locate village

People think that it is somewhere cheating that no one should do.
“I respect the thought” But from my view it’s just a way to make your gaming more easy and there is no such huge problem in using a command to locate something because you just get the Co-ordinate and nothing else.
To Use This Method, follow:
  1. Open your command/debug menu to type the code, confirm that the cheats are active
  2. Type the command ‘/locate village’
  3. Follow the Co-ordinate and reach the village and if you are confused then you can read this article for a quick Co-ordinate knowledge
Now if have reached a village and has found some Villagers then you can follow the following steps to trade with Minecraft villager’s.
Here’re the steps to trade:

Go near the Villager, and then to start the exchange:

  • Pocket Edition (PE), you move your pointer over the Villager and press the Trade button.
  • PS3 and PS4, press the L2 button on the PS regulator.
  • Xbox 360 and Xbox One, press the LT button on the Xbox regulator.

Note: You cannot trade in Minecraft Education Edition with the villager’s.
Minecraft trading 1
When you interact with the Villager then a trading window will be opened in front of you.
In the trading window, there will be different items that you can either trade by using the Emerald or the different resources.
Minecraft trading 2
As you can see here that in the trading window, there are different items to buy, if you want to buy any of the item then you need Emerald for that.
To buy a thing or to trade for the Emerald, you have to place that thing in the input and then choose the item that you want to buy or sell.
Minecraft trading 3
In my case, it’s a farmer and I want breads. So, for that I just have to place the Emeralds in the input cell and then select the items.
After buying/selling the item, the item/Emeralds will be collected in the Inventory and the trading item will be sent to the Villager.
