Steam Card Exchange is a website designed to help you with all your needs regarding the collecting and crafting of Steam Trading Cards. For detailed information, visit: http://steamcardexchange.net


How to use our Trading Bot


The trading Bot provides a simple automated Steam Trading Card exchange service. It values each card differently, based on its current price at the community market and the latest sells. This calculated value (in $) equals the value in credits 1:1.
To get credits you must trade in your card(s) through the trade offer system. By trading in more credits than you take out your credits will be stored for later use.
To get your desired cards you have to include them into your trade offer. Make sure beforehand to pay the appropriate price by using the Pricelist[www.steamcardexchange.net] and it's Inventory[steamcardexchange.net] or have enough stored credits left to pay the difference.

  • SteamCardExchange.net - Pricelist[www.steamcardexchange.net] ~ this is what we pay you for your cards.
    We always pay the same price for any card from a game, that's why we don't list the individual cards here.

  • SteamCardExchange.net - Inventory[www.steamcardexchange.net] ~ this is what you have to pay for our cards.
    Since Last cards are more expensive than others we list every single card we have and show you the current price for it. Do not use this list to calculate your value as it may vary because of last stock prices.

For a general explanation of the Steam Trading Cards and the Trade Offer System please see Jimos guides linked in the More Information section.

How to use the Trading Bot


Short explanation:
  • Start the trade by clicking the blue "Offer a trade ..." button.
  • Add the cards you want to trade in.
    (Don't forget to check the Pricelist[steamcardexchange.net] and calculate the value of your cards!)
  • Add the cards you want by browsing through the Bots inventory or using the Filter.
    (Don't forget to check the Inventory[steamcardexchange.net] and calculate the price for our cards!)
  • Click "ready" and "ok" in order to send your trade offer.
  • Wait for the Bot to accept/decline it.


Detailed Explanation
This is a pictured Step-by-Step explanation on how to trade with our Trading Bot.

  • 1) Go to this Forum Thread: Steam Card Exchange Bot - Trade Offer

  • 2) Click the blue "Offer a trade" button:


  • 3) A new window will pop up which will look like this:


  • 4) Enter the card from your inventory you'd like to trade in:
    (Make sure to use our Pricelist[www.steamcardexchange.net] in advance to calculate your credits!)


  • 5) Click on "Their Inventory" in the top of the trade window and switch to the Steam Community Invenvtory:


  • 6) Add the cards you'd like to get in return to the trade:
    (Make sure to use the Inventory[steamcardexchange.net] to calculate the cost of the cards. Using the filters below the inventory helps to find a specific card/game!)


  • 7) After you're done adding cards click the blue box below your offered cards to confirm the trade contents:


  • 8) Only one more thing to do in order to send your Trade Offer - Click the green "Make Offer" box:


  • 9)That's it! Your Trade Offer has successfully been sent to the Trade Bot and you will see a confirmation on your trade window:


  • 10) By clicking "OK" the trade window will close and your steam client will redirect you to the Trade Offer overview page where you can check your Trade Offer status:
    (You can always check your Trade Offer details and history here: http://steamcommunity.com/my/tradeoffers)


  • 11) After the Bot has checked whether it's a valid trade in terms of credits or not or if any other rule has been broken it either approves or declines the trade:
    (In case your trade is declined and you wonder why: Join the Group Chat and use the /reason command.)


    The reason why the trade in this example was declined:



Trading Guidelines

  • You can store credits up to a maximum of 100 credits.
  • If you offer a trade which would store you more than 100 credits the Bot will now decline the trade.
  • You have to use the /credits command in our group chat.
  • The value of a last card in stock is 1.5 higher than its regular value.
  • Foil cards aren't supported anymore!
  • The card limit per trade is 6 cards on each side.
  • The bot stores max. 8 cards of the same type.
  • Buying Last Cards is enabled by default.
  • Use the internal inventory filter to reduce the loading time!
  • New games will be supported after 7days / 168 hours!
  • Regarding high-value cards: We only pay up to 100 credits per card while we still sell them for their regular value.
  • Sending a trade offer doesn’t work sometimes. Try to restart your Steam client or use your Browser instead. (We really recommend to use your Browser!)



Group Chat Commands

  • /credits (or /c) - See your remaining credits
  • /lastcarddisabled (or /lcd) - Disable the purchase of any last card. If a Trade would involve you buying a last card for a 1.5 value the Bot will automatically decline the trade.
  • /lastcardenabled (or /lce) - Enable the purchase of any last card
  • /tradeoffer (or /to) - The Bot will link the Forum post in chat. Go there to make him a Trade Offer.
  • /reason (or /r) - A reason why your last trade got declined.
  • /status - See the current queue and status of the Bot.

Trading Cards

The first thing listed in our Showcase are the regular Trading Cards in their corresponding order. The current Steam Community Market price is shown under each card and by clicking it you will be redirected to the specific card offered at the Steam Community Market.
Clicking any Card Image will open up the featured Artwork in a small resolution, to get the HD-Artwork you'll need to click the small HD link in the top right corner of that card.

Foil Cards

The second listed item are the Foil Trading Cards. See the Trading Cards explanation for further informations.

Badges

Next feature are the Badges. They are sorted by level with the Foil Badge at the end and show the amount of XP they grant.

Emoticons

Emoticons are sorted by their rarity and feature a small chat-size preview. The current Steam Community Market price is shown and redirects to the Steam Community Market as well.

Backgrounds

Backgrounds are sorted by their rarity as well. They come with artwork and by clicking the SD- or HD-link on top of them you can get the artwork you want. The price works the same way as the Emoticon-Price.
Badge Pricelist


The Badge Pricelist is a Tool made to see how much a set of cards for any game costs right now. In case one or more cards of a set are currently unavailable the corresponding Game won't be listed in this list.
It is alphabetically sorted by default and can changed to be sorted by price (either low-to-high or vice versa).

You can access it through our website:

Rules


This is a very simple and easy to follow list of rules to help prevent scams, breaking the agreements you agreed to when setting up Steam, or our own Steam Group Rules & Chat Room Rules.

General Rules
  • Any form of harassment, profanity, insulting users, or flaming/trolling will not be tolerated.
    Post discussions in the appropriate location (even if regarding the trading system, if it's not a trade post in General Discussion).

  • Do not bump your post, most mods may overlook a 12hour bump, but will not miss the spam of reported posts showing "up" "bump" "bumped" "updated" (when not actually updated). We can see and review deleted posts.

  • Do not re-post your trades repeatedly. Edit your original post and make it clear what you updated in a new post.

  • Do not post your own personal [H]ave & [W]ant list in other peoples trade thread unless what you have is on their list. Ideally both Have and Want. In other words don't be rude and try and hijack someone's post.

  • Please do not beg for free items or even hint at it or joke about it (as jokes/humor rarely translate well through text and it's not really funny).

  • Please do not advertise your own group.

  • Please do not hold a Giveaway that requires money, joining a group, leaving the page it's being posted on. Obviously giving away stuff you no longer want is fine, can even point out donations (in the form of trades) are welcome.

  • Avoid any form of spam.

Chat Rules
  • Do not post your Offer more than once at a time (double posts or within a single post).

  • Do not re-post your original offer/request before 5 minutes have passed. Turn on timestamps in the chat to make sure you're following this rule.

  • Your offer may only use a maximum of 3 lines.

  • Don't spam Emotes and refrain from writing caps only.

  • All the rules above "General Rules" also apply here.

  • Discussing trading is fine but please if you plan to get into a serious discussion take advantage of Private Messaging (right click on the users name in the list to the right and request chat).

  • Please avoid posting spaces in-between each line of your request bloating it.

  • Please avoid posting a massive list that takes up a significant amount of chat space. Instead consider posting your list in the Trading Discussion and linking it to chat. Otherwise cut it down.

  • If kicked from chat please understand you were kicked for doing something wrong and were not banned which means either you were warned or made a massive post/spammed numerous images/broke a rule which in the end was a warning so also look for a private message from a Moderator which may or may not be present.

These rules were partly copied from the Official steam trading group rules.

You probably looked at it the wrong way. Cards from the same set always have the same value if you want to sell them to us. In your case all CS:GO cards had a value of 8 credits.
Since our Bot only had 1 IDF card in it's inventory the price to buy it from us increased by x1.5 to 12 credits according to the LastCard-Fee but it's still only worth 8 credits to sell to us.
You might have been unlucky and someone took an IDF before you, leaving only one more IDF in the Bot and therefore increasing the price by x1.5 to 12credits as well.

Your trade calculation: Traded in: 8c+8c=16c Took out: 8cx1.5=12c

I Am Having Problems In Credit. I Traded 2 IDF (CS:GO) For 1 FBI. The Price Was 12 For IDF And The Price For FBI Was 8. That Means 2IDF = 2*12 - 1 FBI = 8 Would Leave Me With 16 Credits. But On Checking The Credits, I Have Only 4 Credits. Please Help Thanks In Advance

@Catnip:
Just join our Groupchat and use the /credits command.

@MaxMcRolly:
We explained the reasons behind that decision in the corresponding news. We're working on getting in back in the future! :)
Catnip Feb 22 @ 5:49am 
how do you see how many credits you have?
MaxMcRolly Feb 20 @ 3:01am 
Why did you remove Foil Cards ? :c
.JusTus  [author] Feb 7 @ 2:06am 
No, they won't expire. We will store them until you will use them :-)
zeroxxx Feb 4 @ 12:23am 
Will the credits stored ever expire?
.JusTus  [author] Jan 30 @ 3:45am 
If you only trade in cards without taking out any it will save your credits (you can store up to 100 credits) and you can use them whenever the Bot has a card you'd like to have.
Pancham Jan 30 @ 2:30am 
What will happen if I trade in my cards for none of bot cards? Will I get full credits or not?
Rainbow Dash [Dr.Pootis] Jan 18 @ 10:39pm 
Good
