The Gamer Exclusive WAX Token Sale Begins Tuesday (here’s what you need to know)

The Gamer Exclusive WAX Token Sale begins on October 24th and there are a few things you need to know before you buy. If you’re planning on buying WAX Tokens, please read this carefully.

Let’s start off with a quick reminder of what the Worldwide Asset eXchange (WAX) is:

  • Who: The creators of WAX are the team behind OPSkins
  • What: WAX is a utility token that’s designed to be used on OPSkins.com and other marketplaces on the WAX Platform
  • When: We’re reserving all sales slots for OPSkins customers during our Gamer Exclusive Main Sale between Tuesday October 24th at 9am EDT and November 1st at 9am EDT. You can still purchase WAX Tokens after November 1st, but the price increases as more tokens are sold.
  • Why: We expect WAX to revolutionize and significantly expand the size of the digital items trading industry, and OPSkins customers have an exclusive opportunity to be among the first to purchase it and at the lowest Main Sale pricing tier.

How to buy WAX Tokens during the Gamer Exclusive Main Sale

  1. You will need Ethereum (ETH) in an ERC20 compatible wallet in order to purchase WAX
    • Where to get ETH: OPSkins will start offering ETH cashouts prior to the sale date, so you can cashout your OPSkins Wallet Funds for ETH. Also, there are many exchanges that sell ETH including Gemini, Coinbase, Kraken, Bittrex, and Bitfiniex. Regardless of how you receive your ETH, you MUST send it to us from an ERC20 compatible wallet.
    • How to get an ERC20 compatible wallet: The following wallets are known to be compatible with Ethereum tokens (ERC-20 standard): MyEtherWallet (no download needed), JAXX , Mist (Desktop), Parity (Desktop), imToken (iOS), imToken (Android)
  2. Once you have ETH in your ERC20 compatible wallet, you’ll head to https://opskins.com/?loc=gamersale after October 24th at 9am to purchase WAX.
  3. You will want to purchase early because the price of WAX increases as more Tokens are sold. Specifically, the price of WAX will start at 300 WAX Tokens for 1 ETH and increase 11 times (adjusting after each increment of 1.25 million WAX Tokens sold) to end at 150 WAX Tokens for 1 ETH. You can see a breakdown of the tiers here.
  4. The WAX Tokens that you purchased will be sent to the wallet address that you sent your ETH from. You’ll receive your WAX no later than December 8, 2017.
  5. WAX Tokens can be used on OPSkins in 2018, we’ll keep you updated on it’s progress on OPSkins.com

Instant Sell is Now Available for PUBG and H1Z1: KotK!

Looking to sell your PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS or H1Z1:KotK items quickly? We got you covered! Traders now have the ability to instantly sell your PUBG and H1Z1: KotK items by using the Instant Sell Feature!

We rolled this out a few months ago for CS:GO but based on it’s success, we recently expanded it to include these two games. Instead of listing your item for sale and then waiting for a buyer to purchase it on the marketplace, you now have the option to directly sell your PUBG and H1Z1: KotK items directly to OPSkins for the price that we offer you.

In return for your item, when you use Instant Sell you will have the choice of getting either regular OPSkins Wallet Funds which you can cash out for real money, or Operation Points (OP) which is basically OPSkins store credit that can be used to buy other items on OPSkins (from any game).

So how do you use Instant Sell on OPSkins?

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

It’s that simple. So if you have any CS:GO, PUBG or H1Z1:KotK items you are looking to sell quickly, head on over to the Instant Sell Page now.

Beware of Scam Sites Impersonating OPSkins

Update 10/17: You can download this Google Chrome extension to block many of these sites.

Updated 9/28/17

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:

  • Don’t fall for scam sites! Scam sites are any URL with opskins___.com  /  opskins.___  /  opskins-___.com including sites pretending to be OPSkins case opening or gambling sites. OPSkins has NO case sites and NO gambling sites and we are not affiliated with any. Recent examples are:
    • opskinscases.com
    • opskins-cases.com
    • mystery-case.com
    • opskins.promo
    • opskims.com
  • Another new fake site scam that we are seeing lately makes the characters in the URL look like it says opskins.com in your browser, this is particularly tricky when someone sends you a link and the underline hides the special characters:

  • Which are real OPSkins websites? Trust only websites that end with .opskins.com or .opsk.in Examples of these trusted URLs are:
  • 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.
  • In general, if someone contacts you on Steam and asks you to list an item on OPSkins, they’re probably attempting to scam you.
  • 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.
  • 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”
  • 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.

NEW: How to use OPSkins Advanced Search Functions

We’ve made some changes to the Advanced Search functionality on our site, and we’d like to take a few minutes to walk you through them.

These changes affect only the Search section within Advanced Search and so it affects any game you’re searching on OPSkins. You can use these functions along with the other search options in the Advanced Search box, such as price Range.

Here’s an abbreviated list of all available functionalities, and below that a detailed breakdown of each one:

Advanced Search Functionalities on OPSkins

 + signifies AND operation
| signifies OR operation
- negates a single token
" wraps a number of tokens to signify a phrase for searching
* at the end of a term signifies a prefix query
~N after a word signifies edit distance (fuzziness)

How to use Advanced Search Functionalities on OPSkins

1) + signifies AND operation
This one is easy. Put + between two terms and it’ll search listings that include both terms. For example searching CS:GO for knife + doppler or knife+doppler will bring up all listings including both terms such as Gut Knife | Doppler, StatTrak Gut Knife | Doppler, Flip Knife | Doppler etc.

2) | signifies OR operation

This functionality is important to pay attention to because the vertical line is not only a search command, it’s also a character in some item names in games like CS:GO, PAYDAY 2, and Killing Floor 2. To get the search result you want, you’ll want to make sure you’re using it properly. 

So in our Advanced Search, | means OR and that’s only the case if there are no spaces between the terms and the vertical line. So for example searching nova|antique will find you all listings with the words nova OR antique:

However searching nova | antique (with spaces between the terms and the vertical line) behaves as if the vertical line wasn’t there at all, and will instead treat the search as if it were nova antique.

3) - negates a single token
Another easy one. Using - before a term means that term will NOT appear in search results. So searching gut knife -doppler -slaughter will show all gut knives except dopplers and slaughters.

4) " wraps a number of tokens to signify a phrase for searching

Using quotation marks before and after a term will generate results that include only that exact term. So let’s go back to our earlier nova example and search nova "hyper beast". This will generate all Nova | Hyper Beast listings including StatTrak items. But searching "hyper beast" will also include the M4A1-S | Hyper Beast, the AWP | Hyper Beast, the StatTrak™ Five-SeveN | Hyper Beast etc.

5) * at the end of a term signifies a prefix query

Using * at the end of a term will generate any results where characters appear after the term. For example, if you’re searching in PUBG items for pleated* then all Pleated Mini Skirts will appear, whereas searching mini* will show any Mini Skirt:

Alternatively, searching purple* will show any purple PUBG items including skirts, jackets, slacks etc:

6) ~N after a word signifies edit distance (fuzziness)

Put ~ and a number after a word to tell the Advanced Search engine how closely you want the results to match that term. If you were to search CS:GO items for hyper~2 it would show not only results containing the word Hyper, but also results with words that are two characters off, such as in this case Viper, since you indicated a fuzziness of two with the ~2. Also, M4A1~1 would show you all M4A1 and M4A4 skins because you’re allowing the term to be off by one character, whereas M4A1~2 will also result in those skins plus the AK-47 | Orbit Mk01 since that item name contains M_ _ 1 and you indicated a fuzziness of two.

Let us know if you have any questions about the new search functionalities in our Advanced Search update, we’re happy to help. What do you think of the new search options? Tell us in the comments.

New Site Feature: Lowest Priced Items

You can now browse or search the lowest priced item listings in each category for every game. Instead of scrolling through listings of the same item to find the cheapest one, or using the search bar to find your item and sorting by price, the Lowest Priced Items tool does the work for you even faster.

There are two different versions of this tool, depending on the game. Here’s how it works for CS:GO, Dota 2, or Team Fortress 2:

Visit Shop > Lowest Priced items > Select an item type > if applicable, select subcategory

For all other games, here’s how it works:

Say you want a pair of Camo Hotpants for your next game of PUBG and wanted to snag the lowest priced listing. Go to Shop > Lowest Priced Items > type Camo Hotpants into the search bar, and there’s your item.

In ye olden times (last week) you’d have to go to Browse PUBG Listings > Search PUBG > Camo Hotpants > Sort Price: Low to High and buy the first listing.

If you wish to browse items, they appear in alphabetical order on the Lowest Priced Items pages.

For all games, items on the Good Deals page are included in these listings, but can only be purchased during the first five minutes that they’re on sale if you’re a Buyer’s Club member.

What do you think of the Lowest Priced Items tool? Share your thoughts in the comments.

Instant, No-Fee Bitcoin Cashouts are now Live

Instant bitcoin cashouts are now live – with zero fees, and no whitelisting required. Cashouts of $250 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

You can now cashout your earnings instantly via our new Skrill Instant Cashouts method. By using Skrill Instant Cashouts, your funds will be deposited into your Skrill account in less than a minute. 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)
