One of the key components in Seaport are materials. Regular materials, such as coins, fish and wood, can be produced in production buildings and gathered at destinations. The amount you have is displayed at the top of your screen and you can store an infinite amount of them. They are used to upgrade your port, purchase ships, and fulfill contracts.

Apart from the main materials, the game has commodities, which are stored in the Warehouse. They can be exchanged for regular materials on the market.

Some commodities can be traded for other commodities. This always happens at the Merchant destination, instead of at the Market Town destination. Most recently during the 3rd Birthday Event, when you could obtain peanuts from the Peanut Plantation, which you could either trade for regular materials at Market Town or for other commodities (peanut oil) at the Merchant. Both peanuts and peanut oil were stored in the Warehouse.
