What is SkinBaron?

SkinBaron is a marketplace for CS:GO Skins and works like the popular Steam-Market. The big difference is that the seller can cash out his earnings as real money and doesn't have to keep it in his Steam wallet. This advantage for the seller leads to lower pricing than in the Steam Market. So both sellers and buyers profit from the system!

When buying or selling on SkinBaron, you are always protected from fraud or loss of payments by our third person payment system!

All you need to join is a Steam account and Skins that you would like to sell, or money that you would like to spend.

How are your price suggestions calculated?

Our price suggestions are about 90 % of the price in the Steam Market. Experience has shown us that there is a lot of demand if the pricing is kept at this level. Of course you can always set your own price for your skins. Please be aware that higher prices lead to fewer or no purchases at all.

Can I fund my SkinBaron account without making a purchase?

You can always add funds to your SkinBaron account, without purchasing anything. Your SkinBaron account works like a bank account and your funds are stored until you make a purchase or cash out again. It is always good to keep some money on your SkinBaron account to avoid cash-in fees and to be able to pay the next purchase immediately.

 

I did a bank transfer (with IBAN/BIC) but the money doesn't show up in my SkinBaron account yet.

A SEPA-bank transfer (IBAN/BIC) takes 1-3 business days to go through, so we kindly ask to wait three business days before opening a support ticket. Banks don't work on the weekend, so bank transfers which are issued on thursdays and fridays might take until monday / tuesday to show up.

Please provide the following information when contacting our custumer support about your bank transfer:

  • Name of account holder
  • Amount of the transfer
  • Date of the transfer
  • IBAN of your account
  • Reference / purpose used to make the payment
  • You can also send us a screenshot or scan of your bank transfer. That makes it very easy for us to help you!
