When it comes to selling gaming accounts online, or anything else for that matter, you need to be aware of some of the risks involved. In this post, we are going to talk about the safest and best ways to sell gaming accounts.
First, you need to accurately value your accounts, which is exactly what we talked in another blog post, so if you haven’t, go ahead and read it. When you come up with a price range for your account, the next logical thing would be to post it on some of the online gaming market forums.
EpicNPC is one of the most popular forums for trading digital goods at the moment. Whether you want to buy, sell or trade your gaming accounts, EpicNPC is the first forum you should check out. It offers thousands of different gaming marketplaces in the form of subforums, and each day more games are added. One of the best features of EpicNPC is the integrated middleman function. It basically allows you to trade safely with members via an assigned middleman. This is what they call the “Trade Guardian” feature. Be aware that this does NOT protect you from chargebacks or payment disputes! The forum is full of reputable and trustworthy sellers with years of experience under their belt, as well as hundreds, and even thousands of positive feedback from their customers.
Ownedcore is one of the OG forums for gaming hacks, exploits, and black-market trades for gaming accounts. It has been around for years at this point and has amassed a huge following. It’s usually the go-to place when you want to buy something for any MMORPG. It is primarily focused on World of Warcraft though, but you will be able to find more-less anything you need there. It’s also a community hub for bot developers and exploiters. However, as well as EpicNPC, it houses many reputable sellers that have been in this business for years. So, if your goal is to sell your World of Warcraft account, Ownedcore is the place to check out.
Sythe is also one of the older gaming forums that people have used to sell their accounts, in-game goodies, keys, and currencies. In the last couple of years, it has expanded quite a bit and now offers subforums for all sorts of games, the most prominent ones being RuneScape, OSRS, World of Warcraft, and League of Legends. It is the website people usually use to post their WTB (Want To Buy) threads on all sorts of things. So if you head on over to Sythe, you might be able to find someone looking for exactly what you’re selling.
Elitepvpers is probably one of the lesser-known forums on the internet. This is mostly due to the fact that it’s most popular in Germany and many of its members are German-speaking, so you may not be able to always find what you’re looking for in English. Having said that, it doesn’t mean that no one speaks English or will not be able to understand you. There are both ENG and GER sections on the forum. The best thing about Elitepvpers is that it has many elite accounts to offer. If you want to buy awesome World of Warcraft, Fortnite, League of Legends, or any other popular game’s account, Elitepvpers is the place to be. Same goes if you want to sell your gaming accounts, you can easily post there the second you register. It’s easy to use if you’re used to the more old-school style of forums. Elitepvpers is also a good place to discuss gaming with more experienced and long-time gamers.
Pros of selling your gaming accounts
The pros of selling your account by yourself are that you can come up with your own price, your own terms and interact with a lot of people to get a feel of how that certain game’s trading community works, which is great if you plan on selling more accounts in the future. It’s also a good way to build your reputation up, which can be quite useful these days if you know what you’re doing.
Beware of scams
The cons are there as well. The internet is a large place full of people who will do anything to take advantage of you. On every forum there are loads of scammers, just looking for people to exploit. Whether it’s the simple scam where you provide the account information to the “buyer” and instantly get ghosted or blocked without getting your payment, or the “chargeback” scam.
The chargeback scam is where you receive your payment via (usually) PayPal, then provide the account information to the buyer, and all is good. But it actually isn’t. The buyer, either a few days or months later, then reports you to PayPal saying he hasn’t received his goods, and PayPal instantly sides with the buyer and in 99% of the cases, you will lose the money. Either way, the scammer keeps the account you sold to him and gets his money back, while your balance goes into negative.
