How many mercenaries can I have?

Each player may have one active mercenary. Since they act as group members, that means a maximum of three mercenaries may be active per group (3 players + 3 mercenaries = total of 6). Suspended mercenaries don't count against the group total.

You may buy additional mercenary slots from the marketplace using Station Cash (these slots apply to all characters on your account). With the additional slots you are able to switch between mercenaries as long as you are in resting mode (out of combat).
