Buying and selling skins have been part of everyday business at CS:GO for years. Most of the providers of the various skin sites are located somewhere abroad and offer their goods on English sites in dollars. SkinBaron is an alternative for the skin trading industry in Europe. Tobias ' tow b ' Herberhold, a player from Planetkey Dynamics, founded SkinBaron in collaboration with other managing directors. The German marketplace for CS:GO skins went online on September 18, 2016, and recorded over 3000 registrations in the first three days.
SkinBaron.de has a very simple and safe interface. A bright and clear design offers the user a quick start. Besides, the page has a search and filter function that updates itself immediately during the search and thus accurately displays the desired results directly to the user.
SkinBaron.de is a German site that is also based in the same country. The platform also offers German payment options, such as Sofort-Überweisung, SEPA-Überweisung, Paysafecard and of course PayPal. Withdrawals at SkinBaron are quick and free and take place via PayPal within 24 hours or by bank transfer within a few days. Besides, the language of the site is also in German, although it can be changed to English. All prices are in euros and therefore offer a high level of transparency.
During the processing of purchases and sales, the user is allowed to send several items of the same type with a single trade request, which can be a great advantage when selling keys and boxes. The prices for items on this page are usually cheaper than compared to the steam market. Their fees are pretty high at 15%. One thing they do have which none of the other big CS:GO marketplaces have that they have an affiliate system.
Features offered by SkinBaron
One feature that really stands out on SkinBaron is that they have a private listing functionality. This means that you can list your offer privately and the item you're listing will not be found using the search. The only way to access the private listing is through the direct link which is only known to you also the fee for private listings is 50% of your normal fee. Another promising feature is that, if you're new then SkinBarom can help you find the right price of the item. If you, for example, are selling at 90% you're being patient, if you're selling at 70%, it will go very fast and if you sell 60 percent you need the money now and if you're selling for 50% then you will definitely get an offer in an hour.
A very well designed search engine
If you really are just looking for that one perfect skin that you've been hunting for forever. Then it's quite really simple to find it. All you have to do is go to that search bar at the top type in what you want. There are a bunch of different search filters just like most CS:GO skin sites and you can sort through them. You can actually see the different stickers on them, the wear patterns and where on that line it actually falls. So if your item is actually right on the edge of being minimal wear and its field-tested you can see that or if it's right on the edge of being battle-scarred well it's field-tested you can see easily on the platform.
SkinBaron Giftcard / Voucher code?
The site is not shy to offer gift cards and vouchers to its members and on its social media platform i-e Facebook and Twitter. If a member has won a code then he/she can easily redeem it by clicking on the “Voucher Code” option in the My Account section. A small window will pop up where you will be able to enter the code. If the process goes smoothly, then balance will be added to your account in a couple of minutes. Gift Card / Voucher codes can only be used once and will become invalid after that.
SkinBaron Deposit and withdrawal
It is quite easy to make deposits and withdrawals on the platform. If you want to make a deposit then all you have to do is login and go to the top right corner and click on your avatar. Then click on the “My Account” option and choose the method you want to use. The withdrawal also follows a similar procedure.
Payment methods on SkinBaron
The platform supports members from all over the world and thus offer an extensive variety of payment methods. So one can pay for his/her purchase or simply deposit the money. You can use Paysafe cards, bank transactions or SOFORT to pay directly for your purchase. These methods and standard bank transactions (IBAN SEPA) can also be used for deposits. If a user wants to withdraw his/her money via bank transaction then they should have a minimum of 500 Euros on their account. There might be some additional charges depending on the user’s choice of payment method.
How long does a withdrawal take?
SkinBaron is reluctant to provide the best services to its users, and thus all withdrawals are completed within 24 hours. But if you are using direct bank transfer then it could take up to 4 working days for the transaction to complete.
The German platform is highly reluctant to offer the best services to its users. So to protect your account, SkinBaron offers 2-factor-authorization via email. The users have the freedom to turn it on and off through the “Account security”, but the platform highly recommends it to turn it on 24/7.
Security is also very important at SkinBaron.de. In collaboration with Peloba, Skinbaron ensures the involvement of security experts. An escrow system offers the user a guarantee of receiving skins and money during transactions. The support service of the site is quick and easy to work with. SkinBaron is a great platform for traders that are looking for a simple and reliable means of CSGO skin trading.
