Read our article to find out more about sites for trading, buying and selling Rust skins. We cover how a Rust trading site works and provide information on Rust trading cards and skin prices as well as listing some of the best sites for trading Rust skins among other things.
Rust Skin Trading Site
Rust skins are virtual items that can be used to cosmetically alter the default appearance of objects in the game, such as weapons and outfits. Although skins will change an items appearance they don’t affect game play. Mostly they are used so players can make their game character look cooler and to display their status to other players. Rust skins are popular, with players trading, buying and selling their skins to other players. As a result Rust skin trading sites were created to help meet the demand. Unlike VGO gambling sites where skins are used to bet on various games, trading sites exist just to facilitate the trading, buying and selling of skins. Typically these sites will use a Rust trading bot as they are more secure and allow transactions to be completed more quickly. Skin trading sites charge a commission that is usually in the range of 5% to 15% for handling trade transactions. They trading process may vary slightly from site to site but is usually similar:
- Sign into the Rust trading site through your Steam account. Inventories must be set to public to conduct trades.
- Enter your Steam Trade Offer URL to the site
- Select the items from your inventory you would like to trade
- Select the items you would like to trade for. Most sites have a filter that you can use to view items based on their value. After selecting the item you want click “Trade”. The trade bot will prepare a trade offer for you to review.
- Finally, accept and confirm the trade.
Rust Trading Cards
Trading cards are another Rust item that is often traded, bought and sold by players. Rust trading cards are dropped during the game. Once a full set has been collected they can be crafted into a game badge. Crafting badges earns tradable items and badges can be levelled up by collecting the set of Rust trading cards again.
Rust Trading Prices
The prices for Rust skins can vary a great deal. They may range in cost from a few cents to several hundred dollars. Prices can also be very volatile and increase or decrease in value by a large amount over a short period of time. On a Rust trading website players are able to not only trade skins but can also buy and sell skins to each other. Sellers can set the price of a skin at any amount they want so it is a good idea for buyers to have an idea of the actual value of the skin they want to purchase. Buyers can also put in a purchase order for a Rust skin at or below a certain price should one become available.
Selecting Good Rust Trading Websites
When selecting a Rust skin trading website it isn’t always easy to know whether a site is good. The following are a few things you can look at when selecting a site to trade Rust skins.
- Commissions: Commissions on most trading sites range from 5% to 15%. Check how much commission a site is charging and if it falls within the accepted norm.
- Reputation: Reputation is based on many factors. How long a site has been operating, how many users they have, how many trades they have completed, social media activity and reviews all come into play.
- Deposits: There is no need for users to deposit a skin before withdrawing the skin they are trading for. Both parts of the trade should occur simultaneously. Be cautious of sites that want you to deposit skins before a transaction.
