Finding a trading guild - not a hardcore one

So since you earn gold through trading i want to join a trading guild.
I do not want to be a hardcore trading guild like 200k a week etc.
Most of the time i spent playing game ineffectively aka doing quests.
Have you any advice about finding a trading guild that doesn't have huge requirements for weekly sales?
Thanks for info,
Cheers,
P.S.
I tried once going hardcore trading, i got tired after 2 weeks and quit eso altogether so I want to avoid this time.

    Maybe try and find a social guild that also gets a trader. The ones I am in dont have dues, instead they use donations and raffles to pay for traders

    I wish they would make the guild finder was a little more feature-robust, but you could still do a search for trading guilds there and browse through their info - usually they will give some indication of how hardcore they are / their requirements. You can also kinda narrow your search down based on where their trader is located.

    If they're located in one of the major trading cities (on PC/NA at least... that's places like Mournhold, Vivec City, Elden Root) then they are likely on the hardcore side because they're very expensive locations. But, a lot of those hardcore trading guilds also have a sister guild that's less hardcore and they may mention that guild in their info, so still worth a quick look.

    Guilds in less desirable locations like minor cities / random traders in the middle of nowhere / outlaw refuges will tend to be the least hardcore. Which locations are most and least desirable may vary by server, but someone could offer some advice I'm sure.

    The idea above about looking for a social guild with a trader is also a good one.

    If guild finder isn't working out, you might try going to a major city and try asking in zone chat - guilds are always recruiting so you might get a response that way.

    I also suggest editing your post to include what server you play on - you might even get some specific suggestions here on the forums!

    And finally, don't feel bad about joining a trading guild for a bit and leaving if it's not right for you or if you take a break from trading or from ESO. It happens all the time in my trading guilds and we never take it personally - in fact members who leave or get kicked for inactivity are always invited to reapply again in the future.

    In the end the only way to know for sure if a guild is a good fit is to make a (hopefully educated) guess and try it out. Good luck!

    Thanks for the info,
    I also wonder how many people are using sites like tamriel trade center nowadays.
    I will try to put yours info into practice.
    Thanks again.

    If you were on PCNA I would have recommended a trade guild that is one of 3 sister guilds and has no specific sale requirement.

    I'd suggest looking through the guild finder for trade guilds. You can read what their requirements are and look for one with low requirements.

    You can also ask in zone chat and may get some recommendations there.
