How to Sell Items on the Steam Marketplace

hello and welcome to low-budget gaming

and in this video I wanted to show you

how you can sell items on the steam

marketplace now most of you already know

this but recently I've had a few people

ask me people who are new to steam and

who haven't sold items before so I just

wanted to make a quick basics video

showing you how it's done you would need

to have a steam account obviously and

some items in your inventory to sell and

you would need the steam app on your

smartphone you can get there from the

Google Play Store you need to log in to

both places

now first head over to your inventory

and we'll find an item to sell item

items so these are some of the trading

cards that I have for some of the games

also there are items from specific games

like Bob G has a lot of great so in try

selling some of those as well so out of

this let's pick this card this is lady

Stephanie of town burg this is from

Kingdom Come deliverance and as you can

see this card is currently on sale for 9

rupees 9 rupees would be about 12 13

cents roughly so let's put this one on

sale so it clicked sell and you have to

pick a price whether you want how much

you just want to receive or how much you

want to sell it for so let's say we put

it for let's say a fogies so if I put it

for 8 I'll get 697 so maybe let's just

round it to seven now steam takes a

small cut and the game takes a small cut

so it's roughly about 15 percent less

than 15 so about five of it goes to

steam and 10 of 10 percent goes to the

game itself

so you can agree here and put the card

up for sale now the percentage is not

exactly 15 and the way it works is let's

say you are selling something for 100 if

you were to receive a hundred for it you

would sell it for hundred and fifteen so

it doesn't mean that if you sell item

400 you would get 85 out of it

it's a little less than that you will

still get about 87 something so it's

about thirteen point something percent

to be exact let's see if we can find a

few more items you can sell them to this

card here chadwin of the encounter this

card is selling for 584 rupees about

nine cents so we put this up as well so

we'll put this for five I agree now when

it says agreed next step is to confirm

it on your mobile app I'll do that once

I'm done making all the cars that I need

to sell and let's sell one of the crates

from properties well I have a lot of

press and most of them on our Suleiman

these desperado crates they are

worthless right now so and hold onto

them but I'll sell one of these survival

traits so this is going for twenty-two

and a bit so about thirty-five cents so

we'll put it for let's say twenty three

let's make it twenty one just to make

sure it sells

so this is the price that you are

setting it doesn't mean it will sell

immediately while this is the price that

is currently on right now so I've put

three items next step is I'll go over to

my phone and run from it so here we are

on my phone as you can see I've got

certain apps here I click on Steam and

it'll open up the friends list etc so we

open up the confirmation we need to go

into confirmations and we'll see the

three items that we listed here so we

have the survivor grade the encounter

Trading Card and the lady Stephanie card

from Kingdom Come deliverance so the

prices are set and it also shows in

brackets how much I'll receive after the

cut from Steam and the game so all you

need to do is just select take them and

click confirm selected and that's it the

cards are now listed on the marketplace

so I can go into my market and see if

the cars are still listed or they're

sold now as you can see the encounter

card is still here but the other two are

sold so if we click my market history

you'll see the survivor crate is sold to

buyer is two seven seven zero three six

four one seven somebody and I got 1832

so this is just over 30 cents I would

say and probably just under actually and

then lady Stephanie has sold seven and

somebody bought it as well so that's how

easy it is to sell the items on the

Steam market missing and buying is even

easier you don't even need to confirm

anything so yeah that's a quick look for

anybody who is new to steam now if you

are very new to steam you will need to

have the app installed and you need to

use the app for seven days before you

can buy and sell items instantly what

they do initially is if you don't have

an app or if you just started using an

app you need they will put a hold on

your trades for fifteen days so to be

cold once you have used their for seven

days then you can buy and sell instantly

so that is the only requirement for

first-time users but if you are using it

for a while then you won't have that

problem so yep so hopefully that was

useful to someone and thank you for

watching see you in the next one
