GTA Online is still one of the most popular games in the market. The reason behind its sustainability is regular updates topped with new elements introduced in the game every now and then. Since the game got the Los Santos Drug Wars update, the existence of street dealers in the game has become pretty normal.
As the name suggests, they are always on the lookout for stuff that can shake the world (at least when the customers take it). This post will cover all the points and questions related to the GTA Online street dealers. So, without any further ado, let’s start with the basics.
Who are Street Dealers in GTA Online?
In GTA Online, street dealers are gang members who spawn at different locations and serve only one purpose – trading drugs. These dealers spawn daily at three different locations on the map. As soon as the players get near them – in a proximity of 200m, they are denoted with a purple marker on the map. What is surprising here is that dealers don’t respond to any kind of aggressive act.
It would be safe to say that you enter somewhat close to Passive Mode while having a word with dealers, as no other players will be able to attack you. You can have a conversation with any of these dealers to purchase their drugs created by Acid Lab, Nightclub Techs, and Motorcycle Clubs.
Where to Find Street Dealers in GTA Online?
The locations of the street dealers reset every 24 hours, similar to the stash houses in the game. The common time of location reset for street dealers is 07:00 UTC. There are around 50 possible locations where you can find street dealers for all kinds of drug trade. I have mentioned all of them below just to give you a better idea of the things.

How to Trade with Street Dealers on GTA Online?
So there are four types of drugs in GTA Online that you can sell to these street dealers – Weed, Meth, Acid, and Cocaine. As for the prices, one unit of Cocaine sells at an average price of $20,000, one unit of meth at $8,750, one unit of Weed for $1,500, and one unit of acid at $1,485. Nonetheless, if the drug possessed by you is the premium drug of the day, then it will be sold at a higher price compared to its regular one.
On the other hand, if you want to sell a particular drug, then you need to have a proper setup to produce that drug, too. For example, you need to a weed farm in case you want to sell Weed.
Similarly, you need an acid lab business to sell acid in the game. To set up an acid lab, you can also take part in the First Dose missions and get to the top of the Los Santos Drug Wars. To sell Cocaine, you need a Cocaine Lockup Business, and when it comes to meth, Meth Lab Business.
If you own any of the mentioned businesses, then you can sell the produce to the street dealers. As soon as you get near one, you will see an interaction that will show the prices that the dealer is offering. So, one thing we can say is that growing your produce and selling it to street dealers is no rocket science.
You’ll also have to remember that not all street dealers in GTA will want the same product. Not only do their prices usually vary, the prices of some drugs will be more, based on what the street dealer is looking for.
For example, if a street dealer is prioritizing weed over other drugs, you’ll notice a star marked next to it when the selling list pops up. This means that they’re willing to pay a better price for this particular product.
GTA Online Street Dealers’ Prices Explained
There are several factors that influence how much a street dealer in GTA Online is willing to pay for the product.
Firstly, street dealers have a specific price range for the product. Secondly, they won’t buy more than they require. Thirdly, as we’ve mentioned earlier, premium products (which vary based on the street dealer and the location) sell for more. All of these factors combined contribute to how much you can expect when selling to the street dealers.
Below, you’ll find a table that gives you a basic idea of how much you can expect from the street dealers for the drugs you’re selling.
|Product||Minimum Price||Maximum Price||Units||Average Price Per Unit||Profit Probability||Average Total Payout|
Using this table, you can plan your missions and acquisitions accordingly. Of course, the cocaine-pushing business has the biggest payout, but is also quite risky. Moreover, its profit margins are relatively low. For beginners, you’d be better off selling Acid or Weed.
So here is how you can trade drugs with the street dealers in GTA Online. Most of the time, having to deal with them will fetch you a good amount of money. According to my suggestion, having a cocaine business will be great as it is one of the most expensive drugs in the world of Grand Theft Auto Online.
