Before you can start trading on TronTrade you will need to make sure that you have Google Chrome browser and one of the recommended Tron wallets installed.

In this guide we explain how to trade on your desktop by using GuildWallet. Tronlink works similar to GuildWallet. So if you’re using Tronlink, you can also follow the steps below.
Step 1: Open your browser and go to the TronTrade website.
Open your Google Chrome browser and click on the GuildWallet extension in the upper right corner to login in your wallet. Enter your password and click on ‘Login’. GuildWallet is now connected to your browser.
Now go to the TronTrade website by entering TronTrade.io in the URL-bar of Google Chrome. In the upper right corner, you should be able to see that your wallet is connected if it shows your wallet address.
Step 2: Place a buy or sell order for your preferred token.
On the TronTrade website, you will see an overview of all the available pairs (scroll down if needed). To select a pair click on the pair and it will send you to the trading pair page. On this page, you will see the chart, all the active buy- and sell orders (orderbook), your order history, and in the right an overview of the market and the most recent trades.
In this example, we will buy some PLAT, to show you how it works. Click on the PLAT/TRX pair to open the trading page. Next click on the ‘Buy’ tab in the left.
Once you clicked on ‘Buy’, you can fill in the details of your order. Next to this you will see the orderbook, with in the top a red list of all open sell orders, in the middle the latest price of the token, and below in green all open buy orders. The orderbook can help you determine a price for the token. Now all you need to is submit the details of your order:
- Choose a price in TRX for your buy order
- Choose the amount of PLAT that you want to buy
Once you have chosen a price and amount, it will show you the total costs in TRX under the price. Make sure to always double-check the price and amount to avoid any mistakes. Then click on ‘Buy’ to place the order.
Please note: On TronTrade you are placing limit orders. Limit orders are orders to sell or buy a token at a specific price. Which means, that if you want to trade directly you have to make sure you match one of the buy/sell orders. For every order you need to have enough energy or TRX, otherwise the order will fail.
After that, you’ll get a pop-up asking you to confirm the transaction. Check all the details and hit ‘Accept’. If you want to make this step quicker for future trades. You can simply choose a timeframe under ‘Enable automatic signing’ and it will automatically confirm all others for the timeframe that you did choose.
Now you only have to wait until the order is filled. You can find an overview of your open orders, right under the chart. If you want to cancel the order, you can simple click on ‘Cancel’ in this list of open orders.That’s how simple it is to trade on TronTrade.
