    I'm stuck and I don't know if its worth it to continue

    Skins aren't really worth trading in unless you somehow have access to nearly every skin, and access to nearly everyone who wants X skin. Too many variations, too many different values, too much uncertainty (unless you're trading high-key skins (Strange/Unusual) which even then isn't always the easiest). I'd suggest trying to sell it for more than you paid for, and then just avoid skins in general. GL
  5. It's been a few years since I tried trading, and I remember getting stuck at a point I did not know how to get myself out of. I've got a FN Woodland Warrior MKII Sniper Rifle that I could not get rid of. I remember trying to sell it but I had no luck. I checked the price listings and I found nothing. I see the Steam market value that reads 36.64 ref, but I don't know how true this is. I see a buy order for 18 ref, but I don't know if it's the best idea to do that. I'm still quite new to trading and I'm not sure if its even worth trying to continue from the spot I'm in. I got 4 keys and 7.44 ref, though I don't think that is enough to do much. Some advice would be much appreciated. I really want to know where I should go from here, if that's even possible. I just don't want to make a mistake that would ruin trading for me for good. Thank you. Edit: Aye, I just checked my trade history and it said I traded it for a key. Terrible.

    Beware of "Enter-Exit" Scams

    as a ebay seller aswell you can mark the item as delivered and then they cannot charge back since ebay and paypal see it as no issue on the seller side, this tho is still risky as ebay cannot offer full protection IE returns etc

    I am still cleaning up. Just focus on 1 or 2 areas and know them well. The right part on the right item is always popular.

    Is it worth trading in TF2 today?

    Not a big trader but I’ll help a bit ,maybe 1. There’s other markets besides unusuals, liek spells or aussies, or paints 2. Quick buying and Quickselling are kind of 2 sides do the same coin, quickselling is listing a item less then it’s price, basiclly a discount but way more discounted, Quickbuying is buying quicksells, or paying less than it’s bp price by a fair amount off 3. When trading low tiers, it’s hard to avoid the ocean of bots with cheap unusuals and usually the demand for low tiers isn’t really that big atleast from what I’ve seen unless your selling to bots, they’ll buy most hats 4. Most good deals come from if the hat and or the effect. For example Halloween effects except maybe the newer ones, are very sought after due to not to hats having the effect. A good hat deal is what’s probably popular or looks good, and also buy orders, if you get a hat for maybe 1-2 keys above buy orders you won’t be hit as hard if you end up giving up on it and just throw it to the bots 5. Scrap.tf is a general trading website with bots that you can buy hats,unusuals, Stranges, etc, Markplace.tf is a good site since you can use real cash and it’s pretty safe also cheap keys compared to in game store and scm, Bazzar.tf lets you create listings for your hats and you can select what you want wether it be keys or unusuals 6. Depends really, a profile showing your intentions might drag in a a bit more attention but I don’t think it really matters UNLESS, your profile is 1. Private profile or 2. Private inventory because they are usually signs of scammers and most people will decline because of that Hope you don’t end up getting scammed good luck

    2. Quickselling isn't just for starters (People new to unusual trading) Even for experienced traders buying quicksells can be a easy way to make small bits of profit 3. If you don't have the money/currency to do unusual trading low tier trading can be an easy way to make tiny bits of profit. The process can be very fast but you are not guaranteed to make large amounts of profit. If you are not the best at negotiating this type of trading can be quite a hassle. 4. Things to look out for when finding good deals are, What is the effect on the hat, is the effect currently wanted on the market, what is the hat and is it desired, how much is it selling compared to backpack.tf price, What class is it for, Good classes are scout and soldier and bad classes like heavy, and is there a discount on the item. This can all affect the price of an item or how easy it is to sell on the market. 5. Good websites are like scrap.tf where you can find auctions, backpack.tf for price checking, and Trade.tf for finding quicksells. I hope this was of some help and just a quick tip (A quicksell is a item selling for less than 25% of it's original backpack.tf value) Good luck trading, and i hope that it favours you in the future

    Beware of "Enter-Exit" Scams

    Pretty much a chargeback scam, not some new stuff in the air. Usually paypal trades go through with people that have a lot of reputation, but even so this can be flawed to where someone can rack up positive rep and use that to steal thousands of dollars of items. This is why marketplace exist, the reason to receive funds safely while having the 10% tax is worth it. TL:DR - Use mp.tf unless geel is out on a scamming spree

    Is it worth trading in TF2 today?

    1. No, it's not, if u look at me, i invested all my worth in painted items trading, it's working out pretty well so far. 2. Yes it is! Also Quickbuying is a term for "Overpaying for something to get it way faster" But, in your case, getting pure would be a nice way to start it off. (But u can higher offers from someone else, so u never know) 3. If you looking to do low-tier unusuals, for which u have your budget, i would recommend, buying unusual hats close to buy order and trying to flip them for 1-2 keys profit, it can be slow, and not that profitable, but still u can work up pretty fast. I don't recommend trading with 3rd gen effects (except Disco Beat Down, Cloud 9, and rarely Miami Nights), also don't bother with these effects: Orbiting Planets, Massed Flies, Nuts and Bolts, Smoking, Steaming(i had a lot of Smoking and Steaming unusuals, despite it's good looking cheap effects, they are way harder to sell than expected), Overclocked, Memory Leak. Mostly shitty looking effects. 4. Good deals are hard, but yet easy to define. Good deals are considered on: - How the unusual looks like? - For which class it's for? - Is it a new unusual hat / effect - Is the effect desired? - Is the buy orders high compared to the bp.tf price? - Does it looks good? - What's equip region it has? And many more questions, u can ask yourself. 5. U can use bazaar.tf, backpack.tf, scrap.tf, stntrading.eu, tradeit.gg, tradeskinsfast.com, cs.deals, tf2mart.net, tftrade.ru, but i would recommend using the first 3 only, since the others mostly are cross-trading sites, and may have bad prices. 6. That's your own choice, neither I have a "big trader" profile. I suggest you, to look into a region of trading, like I did with painted items. Learn about it, and make it that you can make profit with every trade u made. Check what people desire, and don't work hard just for a few cents profit. Unusual trading is profitable, and if u do it great, u can pull it off. I recommend you watching Unusual Trading Series from Virtual Economist and ApoqTF - don't watch PyroJoe's because that a total bullshit. Hope i helped! Have a good time! EDIT: Also if you really want to trade, and to make profit faster, u can use up that $70 you got. But i wouldn't recommend to waste more YOUR money in it. It's okay, if your profit get scammed from you, but it's not if your hard-earned money gets stolen.

    What is with spelled items

    Nope i haven't Soo is there anyway of pricing these items?
  22. Hello! I'll give be giving a bit of backstory for context on why I'm asking this question as I'm sure this is a very commonly posted thing. I recently got my tax returns and blew most of my money on TF2, as I painfully talked about it with my sister, she expressed disappointment in my choices and wanted me to sell my items. I have a handful of low tier unusuals and some low tier australiums but I personally didn't want to sell them so I started to look at trading for profit.. but it's a bit of a headache finding an updated guide or a trader that wants to explain these things. TL;DR: I have some bad unusuals and aussies that I'd like to trade because I'd rather not just sell them, or I should say, I'd like to turn a profit from them so I can keep my items whilst also having wiggle room to make money. Oh yeah, I also have 70$ left. My unusuals/australiums are as follows: Cloud 9 Shooter's Sola Topi, Cloud 9 Pyro's Boron Beanie, Cloud 9 Professor's Peculiarly, Bubbling Company Man, Fountain of Delight Jumping Jack, 72' Shred Alert, Aussie Axtinguisher, Aussie SMG and Aussie Frontier Justice. A list of questions: Is trading JUST about unusuals? Can I profit only from them or are there other markets I can tap into? (Like aussies) Quickselling/quickbuying seems like an easy route but is this "newbie bait"? Are low-tier hats worth trading, such as really bad hats + bad effects or are these too hard to sell? Where should I be looking for good deals on? What "defines" a good deal? What website should I be using to purchase unusuals/other rares on? Marketplace.tf or Backpacktf? Is there other websites? And finally, should I be setting up my profile and making my trading intentions obvious? Thank you for reading and I hope these questions aren't too much of a headache to answer.

    Beware of "Enter-Exit" Scams

    I know this isn't a new topic for a lot of traders in the community, especially for high tier trades, but I just wanted to make a blanket statement for those who may not know: Beware of buyers who insist on doing direct cash trades! Marketplace.tf offers their service for a reason: If an item is sold and approved through their fraud protection, then the seller is protected. The reason I post this today is because (without saying names) I had someone add me in regards to a large purchase on Marketplace.tf. Got it all listed and ready to go, when the buyer told me there was an error on their end with Marketplace. Fair enough, errors do occur... Didn't think much of it until they asked me if I could sell my hat on eBay. (lol) I know that I would recognize that as fishy... and I'm sure a lot of you guys would too. BUT, new hats get unboxed daily, and some people dont know about the ins and outs of sales. For those unaware how the scam works, it basically goes down one of two ways: 1) Scammer goes first, and purchases the hat through direct means, (Generally via PayPal, but could be any direct payment) and then, makes a claim through PayPal and gets a chargeback* for their money, leaving the seller in the dust. 2) Seller goes first, and the scammer receives the item without payment. (They can then either straight up block you, or keep you on the ropes and claim there's an error on their side, while roping in other victims in the process.) *(The chargeback generally happens MUCH later than the actual sale, meaning sellers could leave a positive rating on the buyers trust, gaining more and more sales with more and more trust from potential victims.) This is not to say that ALL direct sales are scams! Many high tier trades have been done through PayPal, money wires, and bank transfers. It's not uncommon... but that doesn't mean you shouldn't do your research... Point is, Be cautious. If you get a buyer who says they can't purchase off of a known, protected source, you might just have to question why that is...

    Nope, if someone blocks you it'll say 'There was an error adding [name] to your friends list. Communication between you and this user has been blocked.' If it says 'Error adding friend. Please try again (later)', that means he just declined the friend request or you cancelled it, most likely the first one. To fix that, you simply have to block the user, and then unblock them right after, then you should be able to add him again. Wouldn't recommend adding him though since that'd probably seem annoying and might end with a real block.

    This one guy keeps buying all my items

    is he offering the amount you want? maybe youre selling your items cheaply and he thinks he can resell for more....or you just have items he want. As long as he isnt undercutting your asking price...then dont think its harmful. Id keep an eye on it though...not very positive comments on his profile ^^
