Overview (start here)
What is Barter.vg ?
Barter.vg is a web site that tracks your digital game libraries, wishlists and tradables from different stores. You can find those who have the games you want and if they've wishlisted your tradable games. Send offers, manage trades, and track feedback.

What is Barter.vg not?
It is not a store. For that, try r/GameDeals-approved stores,
It is not a giveaway site. For that, try Steamgifts[www.steamgifts.com]
It is not for finding the best prices. For that, try IsThereAnyDeal[isthereanydeal.com]

How do I get started?
You will need a Steam account and you will need to sign in through Steam to Barter.vg using OpenID. https://barter.vg/login/?login

In order to automatically sync your wishlist and library, set your Steam profile to public. If your profile is private, the collection will remain empty until you manually add games.

How do I setup collections?
Library and wishlist can automatically sync based on your preferences and when you complete an offer ( if your profile is public ).

For your tradable collection, if you have a trading list, you can copy and paste it to https://barter.vg/u/my/t/e/ then click "+ Add List".

If you haven't organized your tradables, you can copy and paste directly from Humble Bundle or Groupees. Both sites allow you to hide already used keys. Before posting the list, you can test it at https://barter.vg/list/

You can also add tradables by the bundle at https://barter.vg/bundles/

How do I find a game?
Search or browse at https://barter.vg/search?q=

If you know the Steam appID or subID, barter.vg/steam/app/212680 or barter.vg/steam/sub/14181

I have a GOG / Origin / Uplay game. How do I indicate that?
The same games on different platforms are considered different items.

For example,
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on Steam ( https://barter.vg/i/394/ ) is different from
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on GOG ( https://barter.vg/i/40041/ ).

If you have a non-Steam tradable, ensure that you select the correct item and not the Steam version of it. If the correct profile is missing, request the missing game

How do I find a particular user?
https://barter.vg/u/ or if you know their ID64, barter.vg/steam/76561198164997231

How do I send an offer?
If you have at least 1 tradable on https://barter.vg/u/my/t/ you can send an offer at https://barter.vg/u/my/o/

The offer page restricts offers based on the preferences and collections of the receipient. For example, if the receipient blacklisted the game, you won't be able to send it.

How do I know if I receive an offer?
Your sent and received offers are at https://barter.vg/u/my/o/

You can receive Steam message alerts and emails by adding Sasara to your friends list.

What do all the icons in the offers mean?
⇄ the number of active users on Barter with the tradable
★ the number of active users on Barter that wishlisted the game
✽ the number of bundles that the game has been in
[] the number of Steam trading cards
* the number of Steam achievement
:thumbup: the percent of positive reviews
🛈 link to the store page
ITAD icon link to IsThereAnyDeal

I accepted an offer, but I or my trading partner cannot complete the trade
Fail the offer

I accepted an offer, attempted an exchange, and lost a game or item
Fail and dispute the offer

What are events or auctions
Event FAQ An event is another way to exchange games using different auction types.

What if I have a suggestion
Post it in this topic

Or post a new topic in Feedback & Suggestions

Are there tools or browser add-ons?
Yes, see Tools & Developers

How do I use the data from Barter.vg ?
Many pages have a JSON version if you append /json/ to the end of the URL. Too many requests may result in a temporary ban. To reduce the likelihood of that, post a new topic here describing what you're trying to do. There may be more efficient methods available.

What if the site is broken?
Post in this topic

What if my question isn't answered here?

Having one discussion is nice, but I really suggest using an issue tracker to avoid duplicate requests/feedback/bug reports. You could easily open a GitHub for Barter without any content.
