What is secure trade?
Secure trade is our latest method of trade for the trading of items between users. What secure trade does is the facilitation of item transfer on the sale and purchase among our users.
How does secure trade works?
Secure trade is done through users offering our bots the desired items they like to list for sale. After an offer is made, users will be able to proceed and list items for sale on our platform.
Trade will NEVER be accepted only in the event item is successfully paid and purchased by the buyer,then the trade offer will be accepted.
Why secure trade?
In the traditional method of item selling, users have to deposit and transfer items to trade bots before being able and list them for sale on our marketplace. However with the constant innovation of item scamming in the steam community, having users to deposit items with us are no longer safe and secure. Users who have their accounts compromised might have their accounts bugged and tracked. Malicious bots will be able to send a identical trade to compromised users. Users who are unaware might trade their items to the wrong trading bots resulting in a loss of their precious items and unlikely to be able and recover them.With secure trade, disruption to missing or trade banned items will be significantly reduced.
What is the difference between Secure trade and Automated trade?
Automated trade is original list to sell method we having been using on g2cgame since the inception of our marketplace.User have to deposit the item with our trading bots, once received they will be able to list it for sale.
Secure trade is our new trade method to list for sale. User will first offer the item they like to list for sale to our bots. For buyers, item listed through secured trade after you purchased can be retrieved immediately. Items listed has already being offered to our bots, hence there is no delay for users who wants to retrieve their paid purchase immediately.
The item remains in the inventory of seller, only when payment is successfully made our trading bot will accept the trade offer.

G2CGame Marketplace is an online trading platform, where gamers can buy and sell digital items using real-life money.
Online games on the Steam platform allow players to trade weapons and other in-game items to each other. These items have value to gamers because they’re used to either improve their game play, adorn their weaponry or characters, or are treated like collectibles.
Before G2CGame launched in 2018, buyers and sellers of these items would find each other through a variety of channels such as Carousell, Facebook and trade with one another, leading to constant scams. Buyers would send the seller money via Bank transfer, only to never receive their item. Seller is also pressured to make sure its a "buyer goes first" transaction, leading to many impersonations out there by players and most turn out to be scams. G2CGame keeps both buyers and sellers safe by acting as a third-party platform. Sellers trade the item to G2CGame, not the buyer. Buyers send money to their G2CGame account, not to the seller. G2CGame then facilitates the trade by releasing the item to buyer and the money to the seller.
