Players can trade in-game with villagers and Wandering Traders, swapping Emeralds for items they need (or swapping items they don’t need in exchange for emeralds!) Villagers with professions are willing to buy or sell items but Wandering Traders will not buy items.
Players can simply approach a villager with a profession, or a Wandering Trader, and tap use to bring up a menu and start trading. The only villagers players cannot trade with are Nitwits or unemployed villagers.
