Site Update (beta): Item Explorer

Search for CS:GO items
Item Explorer (beta)

We’ve released the Item Explorer, a new search functionality for CS:GO, Dota 2 and H1Z1 items that shows you the lowest-priced items on OPSkins that match your filters. It’s in beta mode and we invite you to opt-in, try it out, and give us your feedback on it. Here’s how the OPSkins Item Explorer works:

  • Sign in to OPSkins
  • Head on over to your Account page > Advanced Options > Check off Join Beta Program > Save Information
  • Visit the Item Explorer page and select which game you want to search for
  • Select an item type that you’d like to search for
  • Select a subcategory
  • You will then see the lowest-priced unique items matching your filters

It’s important to note that items on the results page are cached, and therefore may no longer be on sale. Then let us know what you think of the Item Explorer by making a support ticket under Feedback & Suggestions. We appreciate anyone trying this out, and we hope it makes your searching experience a bit easier!

OPSkins Improves The H1Z1 Sales Process: Set the item price after the 7 day hold is lifted

You know the struggle: You want to sell an H1Z1 item, so you list it for sale at the current market price. But there’s that annoying seven day trade hold.  So a week later when the item goes on sale, it’s listed at a week old price that’s no longer relevant. The market has fluctuated by then, and now you’ve either listed an overpriced item and have to lower the price, or the item sold immediately because the price you selected last week was lower than the current market value.  You could have made more money if you had been able to set the price at the current market value.

We fixed it. Beginning today, you can deposit your H1Z1 item on OPSkins without setting a sales price by utilizing your OPSkins Inventory (you can read more about your OPSkins Inventory here).

OPSkins H1Z1 Trade Hold Pricing

When you list an H1Z1 item with us, you can select “Addon” and then choose the option “Deposit to my OPSkins Inventory.” Your item still goes into the game publisher-mandated seven day trade hold because we can’t prevent that. But now, the item gets deposited into your OPSkins Inventory without a stipulated sales price.  So when it’s tradeable seven days later, you can go back into your inventory page and put the item up for sale at the current market price. Keep in mind that the item will not appear in your inventory until the trade hold period is up.

We’ve included a short video clip here that walks through the simple process of depositing your H1Z1 item into OPSkins Inventory:

This is an optional feature. If you prefer the old way of setting a price when you deposit it and before the trade lock, you may still do that the same way you always have.

Get started – list your H1Z1 items for sale here.

And the Winners Are…


We saw a lot of excellent entries from the community for the OPSkins Insanity Giveaway. Dozens of users posted videos and photos for the chance to win a $10,000 CyberPowerPC Gaming System, but ultimately had to narrow it down to a winner. As we mentioned in the contest announcement post:

The person who posts the most impressive/extreme/hilarious/insane video or photo wins the gaming system. We’ll take the community’s reaction into consideration when choosing the winner – so the more viral it goes, the better your chances of winning.

Basically, do something AWESOME.

Using a combination of the community’s reaction, the insanity level of the entries, and internal voting, we’ve narrowed it down to first place, second place and runner ups. Here are the winners!

The OPSkins Karambit Tattoo

Nothing promotes OPSkins more than permanently tattooing the logo on ones body. The size of the tattoo, plus the Karambit art and the all-in dedication that comes with a lifetime of OPSkins branding, made this entry the first place winner.

The OPSkins Logo Tattoo

Again, permanent body art was the big winner here. Second place, and $500 in OPSkins Wallet Funds, goes to the only other tattoo entry of the OPSkins logo.

Runner-Ups

Instead of a third place winner, we had five runner-ups, who each won $250 in OPSkins Wallet Funds. Here are the runner-up prize winners:

All entries, including the ones above and all others submitted, can be found here.

Status of H1Z1: King of the Kill Items on OPSkins

Update 9/27: H1Z1 is working again!

Original post:

As the community is well aware, H1Z1 KotK went down for maintenance in preparation for an update. Inventories for certain accounts never returned, and from what we can tell, those who don’t own the game were the accounts affected.

We immediately reached out to Daybreak, and have continuously followed up with them several times throughout the past few days. In their responses, they acknowledged that they’re aware of the problem and that their development team is actively working on solutions, and that they don’t have an ETA. All their responses have pointed to this being an unintentional bug.

We’re looking into every possible solution to address the issue so that you don’t have to wait until Daybreak releases a patch in order to access your items. Unfortunately since the problem is on their end, the OPSkins development team doesn’t have the opportunity to solve the issue. However we have been tapping our connections to higher-ups within Daybreak to try to get this expedited.

Buying the game is an option we’re considering but we are not confident this will solve the problem and it may be a logistical near-impossibility, due in part to the fact that ownership of the game alone isn’t what causes the problem, but also creation of a character (as far as we can tell).

We do encourage you to contact Daybreak support so they understand the magnitude of this problem.  You should mention that some of your items are on accounts which can’t access their inventories so you can’t get your items back.  Note:  It will not be helpful for you to mention third party sites like OPSkins because they might just close the ticket out by telling you to contact us.  Since we are not the cause of the problem – it’s on Daybreak’s side – that will not help you

As the most secure and trusted marketplace for your in-game items, we will do everything possible to facilitate the return of your inventory, and will keep you updated on our progress.

Same Day Cashouts are Now Issued Within an Hour!

Two months ago we announced same-day PayPal cashouts. Then we said, “let’s make this even faster.” So beginning today, when you choose a same-day PayPal cashout, you’ll receive your funds within an hour.

That’s right – not only will your wallet funds be added to your account immediately after the sale instead of six hours (another new feature we added earlier this week), you can now also get the money in your PayPal account in less time than it takes to catch a ZubatNothing has changed with standard cashouts.

 

How to Get your OPSkins Cashout in an hour:

  • List your item for sale
  • After it sells, you’ll receive your OPSkins wallet funds right away. Then go to the Cashout page
  • Select “Request Same Day Cashout”
  • You’ll receive the funds in your PayPal account within an hour.

If you have any issues or questions about the process, you can submit a support ticket under Cashout Issuses and we’ll help you out!

New Trading Feature on OPSkins.com

Happy Friday everybody.  We are pleased to announce a much requested improvement to the OPSkins marketplace.  Trades on OPSkins are now completed nearly instantly.  Buyers and sellers both benefit from this reduced order completion time:

  • Sellers get OPSkins wallet funds instantly!
  • Buyers receive immediate delivery of their new item!

OPSkins’ latest feature eliminates a common gripe among sellers – the possibility of waiting hours for a trade to be finalized.   Up till now, sellers might wait up to 6 hours to receive wallet funds because buyers had six hours to accept a trade offer.  A listed item was in limbo until the trade was completed.   If a buyer failed to accept delivery during the allotted 6 hour period, the trade was cancelled.  The seller lost the chance to sell to someone else during this time.

Occasionally, this system was abused.   “Buyers” – who were actually sellers in disguise – could temporarily remove a lower-priced item from the market so they could sell their identical item at a higher price.  

As always, OPSkins listened to the community’s concerns.  We have now created a system that is not just fairer, but we believe also better for both buyer and seller. Effective immediately we removed the item acceptance time period (previously 6 hours).  When you combine this accelerated order completion process with our popular same-day cashout option, it is now possible to convert your item into cash in your bank account in less than a day.

So what does this mean for buyers?  Now when you purchase an item you do not need to log into your Steam account in order to accept the trade offer.  It will automatically go into your OPSkins inventory. This is beneficial if you’re having a problem with your Steam account, don’t have 2 factor authentication enabled, or can’t pick up the item for any other reason.   You still get your item.  

We are excited about this new change to the OPSkins marketplace.  And please let us know what you think!
