The Trade Station is an item added by Forestry primarily for use in SMP.
In a trade station players or operators can setup "trading posts" to let other players automatically trade items through the mailbox system. The owner of the Trade Station provides a name for their Trade Station, then adds stamps and paper for postage. Add the items that cover the cost of the trade (an example would be for a Macerator in one slot, and then Induction Furnace as what the player will receive from the trade.) The player then adds further inventory for the Trade Station to pull stock from.
For a player to do business with a Trade Station over mail order, a player must have a mailbox of their own placed. The player must open up a blank envelope by right clicking and select the envelope icon in the interface - this will change to a dollar sign for trade stations. The player then will put in the name of the Trade Station desired to do business with. If the name is put in properly, it will prompt the player to include the indicated price per unit of items received. The player then attaches the items and appropriate postage and mails it. Within moments, the person who owns or manages the Trade Station will receive a notice letting them know the trade has been carried out, and the person placing the order will receive their package.
