I really didn't use the market system that much, but I just noticed Valve charges takes around 20% of everything that is sold on the market lol, so this is the only point of the cards? So people sell them and Valve can get more money, I mean there is a reason you only get 50% of the card set for each game you play so you can buy them from other people, though you can trade them with other people so there is that...


I've used the trading system to get two badges to level 5, and considering I have bought them with money out of my steam wallet from cards I've sold, I've lost absolutely nothing out of it.

The only benefit to badges is adding more friends to be honest, so unless you've gone mad with adding people, you don't have that much of an issue.

The fee's are high but I don't mind them. I've gotten several dollars from just owning games. I've also gained over $50 wallet from just playing CSGO so charge whatever % you want.

15% isn't really that high in the grand scheme of things. The idea is Valve takes 15%, and the developer takes whatever they want, but ideally about the same for a total of 30%. Seems to normally amount to two or three cents.

DerPancake is derping again. Just be glad you're getting something from a useless feature.

How are people making actual money from playing a single game like that?

Pretty genius idea. Every one wins.

Also I just got a Batman AO foil card that I can sell for $1! =p

itt: it's impossible for a business to be greedy.

Come to England, own a house and pay for the gas and electric.

Then stop talking crap.

You mean the cards Valve gave you to begin with? You're complaining about selling something that you literally get rewarded with for playing video games you own.
