Where to Sell Crates and Gunpowder Barrels in Sea of Thieves

Where do I get my money?

Yarr! Loot and booty be the name of the game when it comes to sailing in the Sea of Thieves. But some of your ill-gotten gains might be trickier to sell than others. So, what is a scurvy-ridden pirate to do when they return from adventuring with a cargo hold of Gunpowder Barrels and miscellaneous crates?

Who Buys Crates and Gunpowder Barrels in Sea of Thieves?

Gunpowder Barrels can be sold to Merchant Alliance Senior Traders. They are at the docks of Outposts. The barrels will sell for gold and Merchant Alliance reputation (also bonus Emissary points, if sailing as a Merchant Alliance Emissary).

Crates are a bit more complicated, as there are roughly two dozen varieties of crates. Many can be sold to either the Merchant Alliance or Servant of Flame, depending on which faction you would like rep with.
