First time using backpack.tf; newbie questions

Recommended Posts

Realest Lad

It is my first time using backpack.tf but before I start doing the buy and sell orders, I'd like to know a few things first before I start the bullcrap:

 

1: What exactly are buy and sell orders?

 

2: Overpay; explain to me like I am 5 years old.

 

3: The value of keys on the bottom right corner of the thumbnail of the listing/order is how much the seller/buyer wants? So like there is a sell order listing that says "20 keys" on the bottom right corner of its thumbnail, and seller wants 20 keys right? If not what exactly are they?

1. Buy orders are listings that you can publish on the site, and others will offer you the item that you are requesting to buy.

Sell listings are listings for items that you are selling, and people may offer you items or "pure".

- Generally, if you request pure, you'll get it.

-  If you create a buy order, but do not meet the amount that you are willing to pay, then the listing will not be shown to others.

 

2. Overpay means paying more than the price listed, generally overpay is used if you are paying in items. 

People will want more than the listing, as they will have to sell off the hats to get pure.

 

3. It depends on your current page. If you are viewing someone's inventory with 0 classifieds, then yes, that is the proposed value of the item.

If you are on a classifieds page or the user has that item for sale, then it does mean that's what they're looking for.

 

If you want screenshots, let me or others know, or add me.

1. Buy orders are what people want to buy an item for. Sell orders are what you want to sell an item for.

 

2. Say something has a price of 10 keys. 13 keys would be considered overpay because it is more than the price.

 

3. The number there could either mean the set price of an item, or it could be what the owner is selling it for.

 

Hope I helped.

just so u know

 

don't stick to backpack.tf prices, always check the buyers and sellers for a more accurate and in date value of something (for instance there's a lot of strange items that sell and BUY for higher than the backpack value)

Especially if the price is quite old
