Introducing WAX ExpressTrade: Trade Instantly, for Free, to Anyone

You asked for it, we built it. WAX ExpressTrade, a free, instant peer-to-peer trading service, is now live on OPSkins.com.

What does WAX ExpressTrade mean for you, an OPSkins customer? Instead of listing an item for sale on OPSkins or purchasing one, you can simply trade items back and forth with other users instantly, and for free. Soon more than 20 additional games will be added to the service.

Why did OPSkins build WAX ExpressTrade?

We built ExpressTrade to make a difficult trading environment easier for the community, which has helped OPSkins grow from a small CS:GO marketplace in 2015, to the company that it is today.

We understand that Valve implemented the 7-day trade holds to prevent scamming in the community, which obviously has been a major problem for traders since before OPSkins was ever around. In fact, that’s why we built OPSkins way back in 2015 – to help people avoid rampant scams when trading CS:GO items for real-life money.

And now we’re introducing ExpressTrade for similar reasons – to use all of the resources that we’ve built over the last 3+ years to prevent scamming, and combine that with a trading mechanism that will enable the community to once again trade safely, easily, and without fear of scams. Through our extensive and sometimes onerous anti-fraud measures (whitelisting, 2FA, low-priced and over-priced item sale restrictions, SMS verification, etc), we believe we’ve been effective in eliminating a lot of the scamming that’s plagued traders of CS:GO and other Steam-based items. We feel that through our experience and dedication to fighting fraud in the trading community, that we are the right vehicle for once again creating the tools that allow people to trade safely, just like we did in 2015. For these reasons, ExpressTrade is completely free.

    Everyone should appreciate and respect what OPSkins has done here, being honest and upfront about their situation and taken as much action as possible to inform its CS:GO community about the imminent actions by Valve.

    Thank you for years of CS:GO service as a trading platform and whatever you continue to move to will be one of the best.

    I found a very good deal on a knife and I want to cash it out, if I use wax expresstrade I would not be able to withdraw it? Is it that I would just have it in the OPSkins inventory?
