Below we’ll get into how to go about listing your item for sale on OPSkins. But here’s a quick reminder of why you want to:
Why sell my skins on OPSkins?
You get into the skins business because you are a CS:GO player (or TF2, Dota 2, H1Z1) and the game has not dropped the skin you want, or maybe you have a skin that you don’t want that you can trade for one you do want, or simply because you have a skin that you know everyone else wants and is willing to pay a lot for.
But what if the skin that you want can’t be bought in the Steam Market, or what if the gun you have can’t be listed? Lucky for you there is no such thing as a black market for CS:GO skins and you won’t break any international treaties or trade embargoes for selling outside of the Steam Market. Forums used to be the main venue for weapon sales among the community, yet selling your “skin” by using this method could be comparable to a glory hole in a bathroom stall, you had little to no control over what happened on the other side. Now people turn to OPSkins as their main venue for selling skins and cashing out in real world currency because it offers the widest variety of payment options for both the customers and the vendors. You can sell a skin and get paid in your own currency or Bitcoin; the same goes for customers on the other end of the scale and this eliminates any political “borders” between buyers and sellers. Did anybody say globalization? It’s a globalization of the virtual weapons market – pioneered by OPSkins.
How to Sell your CS:GO Skins or Dota 2, H1Z1 or TF2 Items on OPSkins
Selling skins on our market place is as simple as dragging and dropping. You go to the top of our main page and click on the tab that says “Sell” and you will be taken to our inventory page where you can choose which items from your steam inventory will be loaded onto one of our bots. You then click on an item and in the center of the screen you will see all the information regarding the sale of that particular item.
There you can choose the price of the item you want to sale, if you wish to add a feature or if you wish to add the item to a private listing. After you’ve selected the options you wish to add, click on the button that says “Place Item in Queue”, this will place the item you’ve selected on the queue (obviously).
This where it gets a bit tricky. If you do not have the Steam Guard Mobile authenticator enabled, Steam will put the trade on hold for 72 hours so your item will not be listed until three days after you put it on queue. In order to avoid this, the authenticator must have been enabled for at least seven days before the trade was initiated. You will receive a security token which you must save in order to keep track of that item.
Your items will then appear in the queue on the right side of the page and will be listed in our market place.
How Much Does OPSkins Take from the Sale of my Items?
OPSkins receives a portion of the sale – for regular users the amount is 10% of the sale of each item and premium users only get 5% deducted from their sale (at $5.99 for a monthly membership, it’s an excellent value if you’re selling a high value skin or large quantity). When you cashout, PayPal takes a portion which depends on the country you live in, so check PayPal’s website for details. For a limited time, cashing out to Bitcoin is free and you will not have to pay anything to Bitpay to receive your cashout.
