In order to trade bitcoin on Bisq, you've got to set up some way to send or receive other funds. Bisq only handles the bitcoin side of a trade—the other side is handled through fiat payment services (banks, money orders, cash) or altcoin wallets.
Not sure which kind of payment account to set up? There's a full list of payment methods on the wiki.
If you'll be trading fiat, please make sure you see the account limits video or read this article on the wiki.

See trading fees here. You'll notice offer makers pay a lot less.
