About OPSkins™ Marketplace

The world’s #1 marketplace for trading video game digital assets

OPSkins™ Marketplace is an online trading platform, where gamers around the world buy and sell digital items using real-life money. Online games and blockchain-based games enable players to trade weapons (sometimes called skins) and other in-game items to each other. These items have value to gamers because they’re used to either improve their game play, adorn their weaponry or characters, or are treated like collectibles.

OPSkins.com is a highly customizable marketplace, enabling both buyers and sellers to choose from a wide range of options to maximize their experience on the site. OPSkins™ offers dozens of games to choose from, a variety of payment and cashout processors, subscriptions and upgrades, advanced search and pricing tools, an API, and more. We also have a dedicated Customer Support team, comprised of real people (not bots) available 24/7/365 to assist customers as needed, typically within just a few minutes.

Why do gamers love OPSkins™? Before OPSkins™ launched in 2015, buyers and sellers of in-game items would find each other through a variety of informal channels and trade with one another, leading to constant scams. Buyers would send the seller money, only to never receive their item. Sellers would send the item to a buyer who would then file a chargeback, and the seller would lose both their item and the earnings from the “sale.” But OPSkins™ keeps both buyers and sellers safe by acting as a third-party platform. Sellers trade the item to OPSkins™, not the buyer. Buyers send money to their OPSkins™ account, not to the seller. OPSkins™ then facilitates the trade by releasing the item to buyer and the money to the seller.

“How can a digital item become real-life money,” you ask? It’s a simple process that can take just a few minutes for an item to journey from a video game to a bank account or online wallet. Sellers list their item for sale, instantly receive funds once a buyer purchases the item, then submit a cashout to transfer the money to a wallet. Buyers purchase items and receive them immediately.

Once a gamer has acquired an item (either in a game or by purchasing it) they can create an OPSkins™ account and follow simple instructions to list the item for sale. When a buyer purchases the item, they have a brief window of time to accept the item. If they do not accept it, it goes back up for sale. If they do accept it, the proceeds from the sale are deposited immediately into the seller's account (minus OPSkins™’ commission). Sellers can then turn their wallet funds into real-life cash by visiting the cashout page, which offers a variety of payment processors that can transfer the funds to the desired wallet.

Buyers and sellers have trusted OPSkins™ for more than three years to safely and securely process transactions that can range from pennies to thousands of dollars (if it's a rare or desirable item). We've continued to grow and provide more customization options over the years to better accommodate our growing customer base. As the market leader, OPSkins™ processes 2 million item transactions each week and registers more than 200,000 new users each month.
