The Commerce Guild, sometimes referred to as the Commerce Guilds,[8] was a conglomerate of several galactic-scale corporate organizations such as agricorps, retailers, arms manufacturers, shipbuilders, service providers, and the Mining Guild. Headquartered on Felucia, it was nevertheless controlled by the Gossams of Castell.[2] In the time before the First Battle of Geonosis,[8] Shu Mai, a Gossam who was only concerned with power, wealth, and status, used aggressive and unscrupulous tactics to increase her power in the Guild. Ultimately, no one stood in her path to become presidente of the Commerce Guild.[9]

Despite being a competitor to the Corporate Alliance,[2] the Commerce Guild joined the Alliance as well as several other conglomerates in pledging its support and its army to Count Dooku and the Confederacy of Independent Systems shortly before the outbreak of the Clone Wars;[8] Presidente Mai sat on the Separatist Council for the duration of the conflict.[1] While the Guild was not an open backer of the Confederacy, Mai's OG-9 homing spider droids were deployed to fight in the war.[9]

In 19 BBY,[source?] the Separatist Alliance was defeated and Mai was killed by Darth Vader on Mustafar.[10] In 3 BBY,[source?] agents of the Guild attempted to purchase the Phylanx Redux Transmitter during an auction on Cantonica.[11]
