Instant, No-Fee Bitcoin Cashouts are now Live

Instant bitcoin cashouts are now live – with zero fees, and no whitelisting required. Cashouts of $100 USD or more can be instantly deposited into your bitcoin wallet by selecting “Request Instant Cashout” beneath the bitcoin section of the cashouts page. The real-time instant exchange rate will be displayed prior to completing the transaction.

Bitcoin for CS:GO Skins

The process for cashing out less than $100 to bitcoin remains the same as in the past – your cashout will be processed through BitPay within 4-7 days, and BitPay charges and collects a 1% fee of the total cashout amount. Whitelisting is still required for these cashouts.

When combined with our Instant Sell feature, you can turn your skins into bitcoin in less than a minute.

This is one of the few steps we’ve taken recently to make it even faster and easier to sell your virtual goods on OPSkins, including adding instant cashouts via Skrill, reducing standard PayPal cashout wait times to 24 hours, and enabling one-hour cashouts for everyone including our Canadian customers.

New INSTANT Cashout Option

All Skrill Instant Cashouts have a total fee amount of 5%. Head on over to the Cashouts page to get started.

UPDATE: Instant Sell is Now Available for more CS:GO Items (and you can cashout your earnings)

Want to unload your CS:GO items fast? OPSkins will buy them from you instantly. You can choose to sell them for either:
  • Regular OPSkins Wallet Funds which you can cashout for real-life money (NEW), or
  • Operation Points (OP) which is basically OPSkins store credit that can be used to buy other items on OPSkins, even if they’re from another game

In response to the success of our Instant Sell feature for CS:GO keys, we’ve added all CS:GO items to the program except cases and knives.

How to sell your items instantly on OPSkins:

  1. Visit the Instant Sell Page
  2. Select the items from your inventory that you wish to Instant Sell. Then choose your earnings preference – OPSkins Wallet Funds or OP

That’s it. Please note:

  • When making a purchase, your OP balance will be the default preferred method of payment
  • If the cost of your item is greater than the amount of OP you have, the full cost of the item will be deducted from your OPSkins Wallet Funds balance (you can’t pay for one item with a combination of OP and Wallet Funds, it must be one or the other)

New: Instant-Sell Feature

Update 6/1/17: You can now Instant Sell additional CS:GO items (everything except cases and knives). You can now also cashout your Instant Sell earnings, and subscriptions can now be purchased with OP.

You can now instantly turn your unwanted CS:GO keys into funds to purchase other items on OPSkins. Our new Instant-Sell feature allows you to sell your keys directly to OPSkins in exchange for Operation Points (OP), that you can then use to purchase any other item for sale on our marketplace – even if it’s from a different game.

That means you no longer have to list your keys for sale and wait for a buyer to purchase them in order earn Wallet Funds to buy other items (although you can still do that if you wish). And you get to shop from the entire OPSkins inventory, so you can get the exact item(s) that you want with your OP. There’s a 1:1 exchange rate of OP to USD, so for example an item that’s listed on OPSkins for $4.89 will cost you 4.89 OP to purchase.

Here’s how it works:

How to use Instant-Sell on OPSkins:

Visit your OPSkins Inventory page and click the Instant-Sell button beneath “Instant-Sell your Inventory Items for Operation Points”

After you add your items it will show you what your new OP total is, as well as the total OP earned from the transaction. Then click “Instant-Sell Items For [amount]”

Your OP balance will be shown in blue to the right of your Wallet Funds balance.

When making a purchase, your OP balance will be the default preferred method of payment. If the cost of your item is greater than the amount of OP you have, the full cost of the item will be deducted from your OPSkins Wallet Funds balance (you can’t pay for one item with a combination of OP and Wallet Funds, it must be one or the other).

Please note that OP is not cashoutable, and OP cannot be used to purchase subscriptions such as Buyer’s Club or Premium Membership.

With the initial rollout of the Instant-Sell feature, only CS:GO keys are eligible. Other item types, and later on other games, will be available for Instant-Sell in the future.


Terms:

Wallet Funds: funds earned when you list an item for sale on OPSkins and it’s purchased by a buyer, and/or funds you purchased from the Add Funds page. Operation Points (OP): funds earned by using the Instant-Sell Feature

Useful Tools to Easily Find the Best Priced Items on OPSkins

OPSkins is always working to make your buying and selling experience faster and easier on our marketplace. During the last few months we’ve launched a few goodies that you probably want to know about if you want to make the best trades. These tools are all intended to help you find the item you’re looking for quickly, at the best price, and with minimal effort. Here’s a summary of each:

OPSkins Weapon Builder

Use the OPSkins Weapon Builder when you want to preview any CS:GO skin/sticker combination. The Weapon Builder will find and display the exact item you are looking for. Narrow your search down by weapon type, skin, wear, and stickers – then see if it’s for sale on OPSkins, and which current listing is the cheapest. Basically you can design your dream CS:GO weapon, then see which one on OPSkins is the best one for you to buy. It’s pretty simple to use but we made a brief tutorial for you, or you can check out the Weapon Builder for yourself here: OPSkins Weapon Builder.

OPSkins Item Database – CS:GO

The OPSkins Item Database is a catalog of items that includes every pattern index for important pattern-based skins. This tool enables you to view and research nearly all current skins, including wears and patterns, to give you a better idea of which skins are out there on the market. The Item Database then gives you the OPSkins and Steam Community Market pricing for the item you selected, and the links to browse it in either market.

The item database also holds a registry of images for the skins that have randomly generated patterns. Skins such as Case Hardened, Fades, Marble Fades, Dopplers, Gamma Dopplers, Slaughters and Crimson Webs will have a registry of images that you can use as a reference. All skins with a variable pattern and reference images will have the symbol ✓ Patterns. Check out the Item Database for yourself: OPSkins CSGO Item Database.

OPSkins Item Database – H1Z1

In addition to CS:GO, we now have an H1Z1 Item Database where you can discover new H1Z1 skins, and check out their price history. View it here: OPSkins H1Z1 Item Database.

OPSkins Item Database Fade Tool

We also have the Fade Tool within the OPSkins Item Database. This shows you the knife’s, well, fade. Use the slider to change the pattern index, and view how it affects the knife’s fade in the image. Try it out for yourself here: OPSkins Item Database Fade Tool.

OPSkins Item Explorer

The OPSkins Item Explorer shows you the lowest-priced items on OPSkins that match your filters for CS:GO, Dota 2 and H1Z1. This one is also pretty simple – just select the game, then item type that you’d like to search for, then the subcategory. Rather than scrolling through duplicate listings of the same item to find the lowest priced one, the OPSkins Item Explorer displays it for you. Try it out here: OPSkins Item Explorer

Enjoy the goodies, and let us know in the comments what other tools would make your buying and selling experience on OPSkins faster and easier.

Update: Sort & Filter your OPSkins Inventory

Search through your OPSkins Inventory even more easily by using our new sorting and filtering features. Your OPSkins Inventory enables you still buy items even when you have a trade hold on your account by delivering them to your on-site inventory, where you can either re-list the item or withdraw it to your Steam account at a later time. This means that you can buy the item and retrieve it at your convenience when you are able to trade again. Enjoy!

Beware of Scam Sites Impersonating OPSkins

OPSkins is the safest and most trusted marketplace for trading in-game items. Lately there has been a new wave of websites impersonating OPSkins, which scam users out of their items. Here are some steps you can take to safeguard yourself against this and other common scams:

  • Trust only websites that end with .opskins.com or .opsk.in Examples of these trusted URLs are:
  • Don’t fall for scam sites. Anything with opskins___.com  /  opskins.___  /  opskins-___.com  (with the ___ being usually a word like trade” or “site” etc) is a scam site that’s trying to trick you into thinking you’re trading on OPSkins.
  • Don’t trust anyone who contacts you claiming to be an OPSkins staff member. No one from OPSkins will ever add you on Steam, and/or ask you to trade an item. These are impostors who will scam you. In general, if someone contacts you on Steam and asks you to list an item on OPSkins, they’re probably attempting to scam you.
  • Check to make sure you’re trading with an OPSkins bot. When trading with a bot, check your security token and click the bot’s name to open its profile. From there, make sure that the bot is in the “OPSkins Bots” Steam group. The official OPSkins Bots Steam group is named exactly “OPSkins Bots” and has an abbreviation of “op-bots”
  • ENABLE 2 FACTOR AUTHENTICATION ON YOUR ACCOUNT. We can’t stress this enough. This is the safest way to keep your account secure. You can do this by visiting your Account Page > Account Security. We also recommend that you enable Steam Guard Mobile Authenticator for additional security.
  • Do not download any OPSkins browser extensions. OPSkins doesn’t have any official extensions, and so any that you see are most likely intended to scam you out of your items.

Remember, OPSkins cannot restore any items or funds that were lost as part of a scam or hijacking. Your account security is your responsibility. Your account will remain safe if you don’t trust fake sites, don’t trust anyone pretending to be OPSkins staff, and don’t download malware. If you have any questions, you can always contact us by making a support ticket.
