Any alternatives for marketplace.tf & future of tf2

Recommended Posts

Royalcake

Hi.

When marketplace.tf will be closed, what will happen to money / items trades in tf2? 

Will they be mainly on bp.tf forum ?

 

Post your thoughts below.

Mengh.

Will most likely move over to another website just because you don't have to worry about chargebacks or getting scammed. If a new one (ran by someone trustworthy) doesn't pop up, cash trading might move to an already-existing website.

 

Possible options:

CS.Deals - 1% fee (5% fee for keys)

Bitskins - Has been reliable for the last several years in the CS community and infrastructure is already setup there for TF2

MannCo.Store - Next best TF2-dedicated cash marketplace after MP.TF but traders have mixed opinions on its reputation

MannCo.store has stiffed me before. I got $21.30 from the site for selling my Scorching Flames Brown Bomber. Prices are also intentionally misleading. You'll end up paying $2 for a key that's valued at $1.67, even though MannCo.store specifically states "ONLY" a 5% fee! But what they don't say is the other fees for arbitrary bullshit that piles up to equalling more than Marketplace.tf. They also came from MannCo.trade, which had an even worse reputation for illicit practices. So I hope that MannCo.store isn't the future if TF2 case trades. 

 

Also, about my 21 dollar sale, I was ignored completely by support.

hopefully well be able to an p2p option like buff,  buff supports tf2 items, but we'll need a platform more oriented to tf2 and with USD payment options. but as for now and the coming months i guess we just wont have any  decent site.

mannco.store=has a ton of drama behind it, but it will be the next big site as for now

cs.deals=shitty UI. You can't even see the effects in the fuckin site.

bitskins= kind of the same shit as cs.deals

another big factor is, marketplace has a ton of buyers because they support paypal and none of the cs cash sites are allowed to use it.

hopefully 1 of these sites puts their shit together, otherwise we're kinda fucked with having a good cashout site.

Some of these are only csgo but to name a few possible cash sites:

SkinBaron

BitSkins

Skins.cash ( not player to player )

Skinport

Gameflip

Cs.deals

 

And i'm almost certain a new site will be created now that mptf is closing, since its such a big competitor

Yeah the market is open for anyone who wants to create a genuinely good TF2 cash site. I mean with all the traffic that Marketplace.tf got and the 10% fee, Geel is probably a millionaire. So let's see what happens.

The problem with most of these CSGO sites are that the minimum cart is 50$ and the minimum cashout value is 150$.

 

Back in a day I used to use BitSkins 24/7. I tried buying a 20$ CSGO skin last week on BitSkins again, I got greeted by a message that min.cart is 50$.

Except they no longer accept paypal so the convenience factor is gone, theres no actual good alternatives yet.

Honestly, hardly any site does anymore. Not even PornHub anymore lmao.

Dealing with charge-backs is such a headache.

Also, every single site that sells CSGO items literally cannot cash out funds via PayPal which is what makes Marketplace so much more attractive to the casual player. They know they can list keys for $1.80 or so and be able to cash funds out wihtin 24 hours.

 

But yeah, lot more people moving back to key to key trading, increase in middlemen perhaps but obviously other sites as previously mentioned

I think I am just going to take Paypal directly from other traders, but only super trustworthy ones for larger amounts.

There is literally no sale on the brown bomber for $21.3 https://mannco.store/item/8557 If you have proof they removed the sale that would be shady AF but so far every claim of someones item selling for super cheap has never shown up in the sales history. Ive never been ignored by support and they always respond within a day. Also the 5% fee is for sellers, the fee for buyers is set by G2A pay not mannco.store, the G2A proccessing fee is 3.5% + 30 cents I believe. If you already have G2A pay balance there would be no processing fee. Yeah the website is not that noob friendly and could use some improvments but it works well if you know what youre doing.

I am very curious as to how marketplace managed to get past paypals terms of service forbiding dealing with virtual items, they must have told them their business was an online broker rather than a virtual items marketplace or they simply havent been investigated yet which is unlikley. It could also be possible that they are not using paypal directly but rather skrill as the payment processor and using paypal only for payouts, therefore circumventing the paypal ban.

would it be suprising if geel just makes a new site?

Yes, very much so.
Marketplace is a very highly regarded site in terms of trust and ease of use. For the same people to take the site down and start again would achieve nothing at the cost of a lot of work and site traffic. As far as I understand the biggest problem they're suffering from is trying to identify scammer fences and keep them from using the site.

Marketplace is the only cashout website that has paypal somehow, its against paypal TOS to deal with skins using paypal. Also once marketplace is gone no website will have paypal so thats not gonna make a difference

I just know that I would rather go back to rep threads and person-to-person PayPal trading than using MannCo and having my unusual go for 1.50$ because the admin decided to mess with a price changing function that should never have existed to begin with again.

No offense, but I don't really trust mannco.store.

 

Also I never understood how dmarket works, seems pretty complicated.

So BUFF is a Chinese Player to Player trading website mainly for CSGO and Dota. Kinda like MP.tf but minus being able to cash out any of the money you get from selling your shit. They've got pretty low fees and a great UI for finding specific skins.
