The "New" Market Design is bad.
1) Cannot select the individual listings.

2) Takes forever to buy something.

4) Useless information at the bottom of the screen instead of when i wanted to buy it!

5) The huge buttons make me feel stupid and being talked down to.

3. really slow and clunky.

I agree, this has pretty much killed the market for my wife and I. She just started using it during the sale but doubts she'll continue now... and I won't be using it much either. Glad I dumped everything before the change.

Why is not being able to select individual listings a bad thing? Most people buy the cheapest listing anyway so Steam is just making it easier. It's a one click button to buy the cheapest card. No more "That item has already been sold" frustration because the card you click got sold a millisecond before you could buy it. You can also put in a buy order for a card setting your own price which the market will now auto buy for you when it becomes available. No more missing a sweet deal on a card because you refreshed the page a minute after it was listed and sold.

Only way I see the new listing system as a negative is that it stops people from transferring money between accounts, but that also stops people from artificially inflating a card's price. I saw a card I wanted sell for $20 which made me suspicious until I looked at the normal pricing and saw it was usually $0.15.

The system can be a bit more intuitive, sure, but it's a step in a good direction. The new system had me confused for a bit, but once I figured it out (which didn't take me long honestly), I loved it.

It feels more complicated for me to use now when it's supposed to be the opposite.

I can't even purchase Summer cards 1 and 2 now. There's some bug telling me that I already have a listing for the item and yet I don't.

PS: If anyone wants to trade summer sale cards 1 and 2 for ANY other summer cards, I'd really appreciate it.

edit: Steam still gave me the error and yet bought card 1. Still trying to get 2.
edit2: THANKYOU!

It also killed the functionality of Enhanced Steam which made it easy to shop for items/cards.

I don't want to use the market at all the way it is now.

It's bit complicated now, but the idea for sell and buy is quite good

Now you know how many things have the same price as yours.

I see many items post for less than half of the "going" lowest price yet can't for the life of me get to them.

At least before I could refresh a page of 1 item I wanted until the price I wanted to pay maybe came up.

My vote for not liking this new format +1

I think the new mechanism killed joy of hunting cheap cards... Now you just put your buy order and wait.

These cards are just something extra, we pay for that little joy of selling and byuing jpgs. If there is no joy, then there is no transactions.

Bumping this thread because I hate this new system too. So glitchy and frustrating cant even buy cards atm because it says to refresh everytime i try instead of placing my order. Hope they rack this up to a failed experiement and go back to old way. Waste of time trying for an hour to get 1 card for couple of cents.

I agree the new buying/selling marketplace sucks.
