We’re introducing the new Buy API, now available for developers who want to buy items easily and on a large scale. It also blocks bots that try to snipe items by allowing a 10 minute window to pass before the item can be purchased.
This means that now you can buy one or more items and deliver them to your OPSkins inventory. Once purchased, the item(s) can be delivered to your Steam inventory using the Withdraw API. In order to prevent bot sniping, this API will only allow for purchases of listings which have been publicly visible for at least ten minutes, and therefore are not limited to purchase only from Buyer’s Club members.
If this API succeeds, then it will contain a root-level
balance property containing your new account balance after the purchase, in USD cents ($0.XX).
When using the new API, you’ll have an easier way to purchase a large amount of items and withdraw them to your Steam inventory, either manually or through our Withdraw API.
If you have any questions on how this new API works, you can post them on our Reddit page and our developers will answer.
Also, remember that we are always on the lookout for new ideas that can be transformed into new features! For this new API, or any other new feature that you think could of that would improve your experience on OPSkins Marketplace, let us know in the comments.
