Portable Trader, also known as Portable Vic,[1] is an NPC that can be spawned by players with a Trader summoning stone. He allows players to exchange bonus experience for credits and provides the player access to Vic's Store for a period of one hour. The timer is paused if the player logs out.

The portable trader cannot be used by other players.

The portable trader cannot be spawned within a three tile radius of another player's trader or in a ten tile radius of Vic the trader. Only one portable trader can be spawned at a time, and he can be summoned almost anywhere that a summoning familiar can. The trader will despawn if the player gets too far away, but he can be summoned again for free as long as the trader's one hour timer is still ongoing. This is indicated by an icon in the player's buff bar.
