In my 5 (including my old acc) I haven't spent a penny on steam,nor do I intend on doing so,I've gotten a $10 steam card by trading and redeemed it,and I still haven't spent anything,and I want to be able to use scm,but it says it requires a steam transaction,do microtransactions (tf2) count?Or do I simply have to buy a steam game to be able to use SCM?

To use the Steam Community Market, you'll have to buy a game from the Steam Store, I believe, or have added funds to your account. Micro-transactions from games like TF2 don't count. Once you've bought a game from there, you'll need to wait 30 days for the purchase to be credited as a valid purchase and then you can use the Steam Community Market.

I paid for Skullgirls and Huniepop till found out that Huniepop was a puzzle game and not hentai. I just refunded it back

But just buy a cheap 50-99 cent game and your ready to go

Like Mengh said, you have to purchase something worth $5 minimum from the steam store for all the features to be unlocked on your account, including the SCM. Likewise, there will be a 1 month cooldown before you can actually use the SCM.

 

Game microtransactions won't work, and you have to buy a game worth at least $5, there will be a price bar in your account details somewhere tracking how much you spent on the store, and after you spent $5 or more, you will have your steam account fully unlocked.

I once bought a Shred Alert for $7,49 in the Mann Co. Store

Took me a while to realize they cost 1 key (back then) on trading sites....

 

Also, yes you need to have Steam funds (obviously) and own a game. The SCM also requires a valid and up to date email address.

If you're buying in-game items for the first time, it considers your premium upgrade as DLC thus counting.

I simply bought an item from the official TF2 store a few weeks ago and in about a week or so I'll be able to use the SCM.
