This change will hopefully create more unity between console and PC players.

PoE Trade Site

Path of Exile is finally bringing over the Trade Site to console players in an attempt to phase out the Trade Market. The unification between PC and console could hopefully pave the way for further development like cross-play, cross-progression, and cross-purchases--although this idea is still some ways off.

As of now, both the consoles' Trade Market and PC’s Trade Site offer some good with the ugly. While the Trade Market makes things difficult to find, purchasing the item is easy. With the PC’s Trade Site the opposite proves to be true, finding things is easy, but purchasing is difficult. This isn't a mistake though, this is to purposefully avoid trade being too fast and easy. Thus, rather than combining the two systems, instead it has been decided to bring over the Trade Site to Path of Exile on console.

There is one issue. Currently, users have to copy/paste a trade message from the website into the game client. This is moderately easy on PC but would be extremely difficult on console or the website, so there will now be a Direct Whisper button that will detect a player’s current logged-in game session and will automatically send the whisper directly from their account to the recipient. This functionality will also apply to the PC version of the Trade Site.

The update will happen a little while after Lake of Kalandra’s release, but the existing Trade Market won’t go away immediately as these changes will still be in a beta version that will need player feedback.
