The basic definition of a trade is when you want to exchange an item for another item. When entering a trade on Virtual Family Kingdom, you don't have to trade only one item. You can trade multiple items to equal the value of the particular item(s) you're trading for. Through trades, you can also give away items or chat privately with another player.
To enter a trade, click on another player. Under the selected player's signature and pins, there is a row of two green buttons. Click on the button on the right marked "Trade." Clicking this button will then send a request to the player, asking them if they would like to trade. Since the person has to accept or decline the trade, be patient. If the other player declines, do not harass the player by sending more trade requests. Simply move on to another player. Once your trade request is accepted, you can begin trading!
