Hello everyone,

We have been working hard on our new Dota 2 Marketplace site for last 6 months with a mission to make trading smooth and more user friendly. Few days ago we went for public testing and we are happy to invite you to join us on Dota2Marketplace.com.

So what is so different compared to other trading sites?

As a trader, the hardest thing for me was to find the exact items I needed. For instance, if I would look for Blue Ethereal Flames War Dog I would spend half an hour or more just to find few traders which actually have the courier I am looking for. Aren’t you also tired of that? Now, with filters and categories on Dota2Marketplace.com I can find any item I want in a second.

We also spent a lot of time to make a stable and secure trading enviroment, because we don’t like poorly written and unstable applications.

And last, but not least, we really care what you think about our new marketplace, so come and join our Dota2Marketplace Steam Group, report us any bug you find on Bugs section or give us some Ideas  which would help you trade easier.

 

Thanks and happy trading.

      You are probably talking about backpack item load because site itself is much faster than others. We need to put some cache when you first time load your backpack items. We are currently working on it.

    A little hint for the website, and something no trading site has so far:
    A “Trade X sites of my inventory” Offer button.
    Otherwise you have to make many trades for a lot of items you want to trade.
    This button could also display how many Myth/rare/unc/com you have in the tradable inventory pages.

    Just a idea, but in my Opinion a very usefull idea for smaller traders.

    Keep the good stuff going, love your site :P

      Can you elaborate this a little more because i don’t quite understand “Trade X sites of my inventory” ?

        For example:
        You have a Icon in the “HAVE” section, that shows a inventory icon, under that Icon you can choose numbers (meaning these number are the pages of your inventory) or even that your full inventory is for trade. This way you can easy display that you are trading your inventory or several parts of it.
        The one who is intrested in your inventory can then easily check it out (via steam profile, other websites, or even a feature which you may implement ;) ).

        The Icon could also display, as i already said, how many Myth/rares/uncommons are in these pages. ( i dont know how hard it is to script such a thing)

        In my eyes is this a feature which many sites are missing.

        If you have any more questions about my Idea please let me know, and also if you think its not worth implement, let me know it too please :)

    Why is there no edit button in our own trades?

    • Mr.Ham

      One trade – one item on the left and one or more items on the right.

      It’s the “new” system and no, we are not converting back. Even I have to get used to it…

      Do not ask WHY because we do have our own reasons for that and it is solid as rock, that is all I have to say for now. More info in the future regarding this topic (few months, at least).

        Then what about bets?

        *Removed link from your trade*

        There should be a separate part at least.

    Maybe should put in a ‘Have’ ‘Want’ system, as far as I know, the site only can search for either ‘Have’ or ‘Want’.
    What I am saying is, on the search tab, include both options.
    Example, Have: key , Want: Dragon claw hook.

    just some suggestion, making smaller icon would be better for user to view more trade on 1 glance

    • Mr.Ham

      We had feedback – people with impaired vision could not see the icons well and on top of it all, we wanna encourage using SEARCH button. Same as you browse your very own item in trade window inside Steam, you never ever search your item which you wanna trade manually, always use SEARCH button there (find).

    additional suggestion, when user hover their mouse to the item, item description and their price from dota2price will popup.

      Personally, I would not dare to do that. d2p is site for reference only and mistake can be done (humans are updating prices, it is not automated by the way that people VOTE on each price) so another burden like that is a “no no” as far as I am concerned.

      Cmon, it is not THAT hard to do a quick PC (price check) for each for each item you’re after ^^

      Anyway, thanks for your feedback, appreciated :)

    I have been using your website for a “few” weeks now or since you linked it to me and the only thing i have noticed that I would love for you to incorporate on the site is the match trade function thats available on lounge. FYI im loving the option to be able to do a “background check” on the other traders! Really neat website so far good job!

    I didnt know where else to ask this, but in the courier price list, the two new immortals yak and stumpy are classified as ‘trade’ availability.
    Which makes perfect sense.

    But Unusual lotus wardog and drake are both also classified as ‘trade’ availability, whereas all the other lotus couriers are still classified as “lotus Chest” availability.

    Is this a mistake on your part, or is a mechanic that i don’t know about?

    thx

      Ummm no idea but I cannot check on that now, just came for a quick login back home then I am off again…

      …and I am not sure if that is relevant, at all :-o

      • jay

        How is it not relevant?

        *trade* only would mean that its only obtainable from trade, and not store or treasures anymore, making its price alot higher. If however its still a treasure item, the price should be lower.
        The new immortals are new ‘trade’ only. But if it says ‘trade’ yet is still obtainable in chests, then whats the point of showing that info at al then?either its 100% correct, or not at all correct. A 95% correct info base kinda isn’t helpful.

    Just a thought, but how would you gauge items worth as they come out? Do you look at the offers and make a mean estimate or do you push people to their maximum offer to see what they are willing to pay/trade for it?

    • Mr.Ham

      I just wait for 15 days then buy for few keys EVERYTHING what is inside new chests (and what I like, of course).

      For example, for 3 keys and with some trading (10ish trades) I’ve managed to get each item and each taunt in last chest the moment they were released… and NP mythical alone was worth 3 keys at that moment.

      Patience is virtue in trading. You win some (sometimes on purpose if you want item badly), you lose some. As long as you win more then lose, all is fine.

        Another question, do you reckon it’s worth it to invest in high return chests and flip them for higher prices. I know this only works with new items but say I buy 15 chests + keys and get a decent chunk of items, then take those items and flip them seeings as they are in high demand? I know this is risky but I get lucky sometimes >.<

    Hi Ham, Painstik,

    Just wanted to say that you’ve updated values of many couriers but forgot to update the price of Golden Greevil. It’s still given as 4 while 2 keys is the regular price… hell I’ve even seen a trade with giving GG for just 1 key! If you want I’ll search and give you the list of trades where deal was sealed for 2 keys each.

    Thanks and kindly keep updating the trade prices as much as possible.

    Regards,
    Rohit

      1st time, it loads a lot. After then, for the next 15 minutes (as long as you’re not idle) – it works just fine.

      Not our fault, that is Valve servers configured that way (same is for any other website).
