Wow I can't buy stuff from the Steam market on a new account?

#1Xa3r0xPosted 7/2/2014 10:05:13 AM
I bought CS GO, the new operation, and put some money in my steam wallet. And they won't let me use the community market until August 1? Complete BS. What if I want to buy some skins? Or sell stuff that I get? Am I out of luck for the next month?

Yup if your account is inactive for a month or more the market locks for the same time period. It's to prevent bot accounts.. Also if you have $200+ in transactions within a year you have to fill out a tax form.

Just 200 sales, not $200

Im pretty silly stuff like this is stated in steam itself.

It's ridiculous. Locking out new members from market transactions is a terrible business tactic. it won't even let me trade with friends either.

Why did you make a new account? What's wrong with your old one?

That's why TC is so mad. He had some kind of scheme ready and now he has to wait and that ruins the timing of his scheme.

What if you want to buy Skins? Seriously? It's not like it's an urgent matter.

What I always love about these threads is why people rage here. Why here? What do you want to achieve? You want people to get on board with you? Even if they agree, what's going to come of it?

I honestly don't know how the market is abused for such purposes. I made a new account to play counter strike on. My new account rank is higher than my main, so I'm just going to stick with this one. I put in $10 on this account, bought operation breakout for $5.99. Have $4.01 left over which I can't use till next month. That's why I'm mad.
