He has Diplomacy which is used for "negotiating, compromising, and getting along", but not Merchant for "buying, selling, and trading retail and wholesale goods."

So a skill good at getting a fair deal but poor at getting a financial windfall.
Not sure that follows, Just MHO but...

Merchant evaluates a value for retail or wholesale products, while broader contracts, deals and arrangements involving non-material things are more Dimplomacy's wheelhouse.

A "windfall" seems possible in either case. I would think that it is up to the quality of your dealings and the perceived value of what you're offering. I think a diplomat should absolutely be able to make a very favorable deal based on the power of their position when they know they have an exclusive resource.

Knowing the retail value of things and being able to haggle become lesser points in the face of "you need this, and only I have it".
