How to make profit by card banking

Recommended Posts

Introduction

 

 

So after 1 month in the card banking trading scene,I've made a lot of profit.If I'm not mistaken,I made 8 keys profit in the halloween event and eventually I made a dumb decision to unbox,which I don't make any profit.But recently I've broke my own record by QUADRAPLE-ing my investment in just 2 days.Suprising right?how can buying 10 cent card be profitable?My trading's motto is:Any profit is good enough.My motto really helps me in the trading scene,who knows i can turn 2 keys into 8 keys in just 48 hours.Well,now I decided to tell you how YOU can make profit just like me

 

Card buying tips:

 

Tip 1:Step up your game

 

The meta of card trading is 1-2 scrap per card,why not go further and offer 3-4 scrap per card.the chance of you losing profit in card banking is very small.for me,i buy card with 1 reclaimed as it is easy to count and attract a lot of client

 

Tip 2:"Bunny hop" across server

 

This tip can be used on any type of banking because it is effective,but i find so few people do this.30 minutes is the longest duration you should be on a trade server.If nobody offer you in 10 minutes after you enter a server,its probably better to leave

 

Tip 3:Advertise

 

Use any platform to advertise your trade.Use trading subforum,backpack.tf forum,anything you can think of(dont forget to bump your thread)

 

Tip 4:Knowing the card value and the card's market

 

For instance,if you buy cards with 3 scrap,that means you've invest 3 cent of a card,it is better to search for a card that is valued 6 cent+ because of SCM taxes.Futhermore,it doesnt mean if people are selling the card for 10 cent,it is worth 10 cent.some game doesnt have a large player base,thus the price of card inflated.it is better to use the buy order to determine the card value.

 

Tip 5:Healthy card's market

 

What i mean by health is how much card has been sold in the last 24 hours,A.K.A Volume.if the volume is lower than 50,it is better to refer to the buy order to determine the value of the card,as the card might have been inflated in value

 

Tip 6:Make friends!Be Friendly!

 

I cant stress this enough,everytime you put up a advertisement or a post regarding your trade,be friendly as possible.This will help you to have a constant card seller that will willingly to sell you their card the second the have one.I even have 2 friend that constantly supply me a good card because they said im a nice dude

 

so thats the end of my advice,i hope you can benefit from it

How many hours are you putting into this per day? I don't doubt you are making profit, but I doubt you are making more profit per hour and key you put into it compared to Killstreak kit banking.

Well thats why hardly anybody does Card banking, way too time intensive.

5 hours a day for 8 Keys profit in 1 month :/

Hardly anybody has 5 hours a day to dedicate to trading

Have you ever thinked about switching to unusual trading? Becouse by it i made 10 times more keys in 1 week then you in few months.

He claims to be able to make 6 keys in 2 days. Just to be extremely safe, Ill round that down to 3 keys in 2 days. At this rate, in a "few months" he would have made 135 keys (45 per month). But, if he were working at his mentioned 6 keys in 2 days rate, it'd be doubled. So you must be making anywhere from 135-270 keys per WEEK?

The issue is it may not scale since there simply might not be enough people buying these cards to make it profitable unless you have bots going between trade servers and on websites :/

i know the basic of unusual trading but it seem a little bit risky with oversaturated low tier market :l

Yeah I'm doing this method aswell for the past year, altho not constantly, pretty much buy all cards valued at 0.05 cent and above for 2 scrap or 1 rec each, since 1 ref is 3 cent, you are selling 1 cent(or 0.32.5) and making 2 cent(or more, also considering you remove 0.01 cent for quicker sells), if you find a big seller you are gonna get a butt lot of profit, this is how I've been doing it really...
