why is there people listed on the market in front of me when they offer the same amount of cash for an item
and they come AFTER me

this is really bugging me, because when it comes to same price offers i thought the market worked on a "first come first served" basis, and when someone gets in front of me offering the exact same amount of cash it often means i wait longer to sell my items

are they like exploiting the system in some way or is just plain steam market buggyness?

Market lists cheaper items first.
For items with the same price, it displays the most recently added item first.

well its kind of stupid to display the most recently added item first and that doesnt even happen when i sell an item for the same price as another someone else, i always end up listed after him/her


adding to that, recently ive seen people with higher prices being listed before me

here is what the market looks like if you are not logged in with your steam account:

if you are looged in you see prices in your currency:

Valves makes more money if they sell the items with the cheapest currency first (0,17 pуб. = 0,00417€, but they are selling for 0,02€ which is 480% more) which is unfair to people with higher curreny like GBP or EUR.

It's impossible for me to sell something for 0,01€ unless there is noone seeling with a cheaper currency.

the wrong order can be related to wrong currency conversion, here is a picture where the price listing is not correct:

can't we have a list for region like i go in and have euro i would see prices by who listed first instead of cheapest, when it's the same as in the first item listed for 0,03 euro would be first and not the russian seller being first.
