Overpriced Selling Guide
What is OP selling in FIFA 23?
The first question among casual players would be "What is OP selling?"
The basic concept is really easy to explain, you buy the lowest card on the market and list it up for higher.
Every time a player sells you will buy them back and re-list them.
How OP Selling work in FIFA 23?
The basic concept is simple, buy 100 cards at the lowest price on the market and list them for higher.
During most 1 hour listings, a few will sell, when they sell you then re-buy the player and relist.
This may seem like it won't work but it has been proven to work year after year.
Why Does It Work?
Market rises - On a regular basis cards with a certain rating/rarity will rise and fall, for example when they are a requirement in an SBC that everyone wants to do.
The cards on your list are potentially then amongst the cheapest and so they sell really quickly.
Lazy buyers - These are people who do not check prices or do not know how to use the price filters.
They will buy the cheapest card they see on the first page of the transfer list.
People who use the ‘Compare Price’ function (often in conjunction with ‘Concept Players’) are particularly prone to this.
How Do I Practice FUT Trading in FIFA 23?
For this to be most effective you want to buy 100 players. (You have 100 spots on your transfer list) If you have more than 100, you can still only list 100 so it isn't an effective use of coins and if you list less you have less chances of getting sales every hour.
You also want to look at players that are around the same price, for example, if you have 2 million coins, you will look at cards that are worth around 20,000 coins
2,000,000 budget divided by 100 cards ≈ 20,000 per card
To build an effective list you will need to look at players that are popularly used in squads or used in SBC's.
You can use the above to build your own list but if you need trading support we do have a OP list for each and every budget. You can join the trading Discord by clicking here.
Top Tips for Getting Sales
30% of buy price
4,000 plus 5% EA tax
5,000 plus 5% EA tax
6,000 plus 5% EA tax
7,000 plus 5% EA tax
+1,000 per 10k plus 5% EA tax
You would then add another 1,000 coins onto the sale price for each additonal 10,000 it cost you to buy the card, for example a card costing 120,000 would then be sold for 12,000 plus 5% to cover EA's tax for selling cards. meaning the card would be listed for c. 138,000 coins.
Always make sure that you round up or down a bit to get just below the next big number (9.9k rather than 10k, 19.75k rather than 20k, 26.75k rather than 27k.)
Make sure to leave at least a 10% gap to the max price, if that isn't possible, do not use the player.
A good chem style and position change can increase the chance to get sales too. E.g. Hunter on a striker or Shadow on a defender.
A Technique For Higher Budget Sales
- Add an extra zero to your transfer listing price
List a card for 102,000 instead of 10,250, 202,000 instead of 20,250. 302.000 looks similar to 30.250 and some might think it's a good 'snipe'
- Listing cards for exactly 100,000 coins more
List a card that costs 236k for 336k as 2 and 3 look similar.
- Switch Numbers
A card that has a minimum BIN price of 241,000 could be listed for 412,000, people sometimes get confused and misread the numbers.
These wont necessarily lead to more profit. When one of these cards sell you will get a large profit but you will get less sales than following the usual method. Also, because it may take a longer time to sell, the risk that one card drops massively has a greater potential.
Minimising losses/maxing profit vs minimising effort
The most common questions our OP traders get asked are 'When should I buy?' and 'when should I
There are two broad approaches to this:
Buy your list and keep rebuying and relisting without paying any attention to the FUT transfer market. This is simple, easy, low effort and will definitely make very good profits.
It works particularly well on the lower-value lists (100k-500k) but one of our very best traders uses this method to trade high value cards and it works for him.
By carefully watching the transfer market closely, you can minimise losses on cards that drop suddenly and maximise profits by taking advantage of sudden market shifts. All market shifts have major profit potential – if the market drops suddenly, it will always rebound so if you buy your list at the bottom of the market, you will get lots of sales when it goes back up.
In our Discord's OP selling channels, our traders will always post advice on potential market changes and help you navigate the best times to stock up and sell off.
The Choice Is Yours
You can choose to trade more passively or be very active (or somewhere in between). You have a trade off, the time you spend trading against the profits you make and you will have to find the right balance for you.
