With OPSkins having been hit by a cease and desist order by Valve, much of the CS:GO and skin-trading community as a whole have been looking for an OPSkins alternative to trade on. We wanted to list some sites like OPSkins that people can use for a similar experience to the great platform they had, and explain what the sites do similarly or alternatively to OPSkins.
Here are our best OPSkins alternatives for 2018.
BitSkins is by far the best alternative to OPSkins and has actually always been a viable website to use for trading. It has the same massive library of skins people came to expect from OPSkins, but actually has a smaller commision fee, so sellers walk away with more profit. BitSkins take 5% commision on sales compared to the 10% that OPSkins would take, and this percentage actually goes down the more you sell on the site.
If you’re looking for CS:GO websites like OPSkins, then BitSkins has that covered. It has a really extensive collection of CS:GO skins and sports a site design similar to that of OPSkins as well as an easy-to-use filter system. For CS:GO fans looking for a site like OPSkins, BitSkins is the best option.
The other games that you can buy and sell items on BitSkins for are:
- Dota 2
- PayDay 2
- And a whole host more!
CS:GO Shop is another contender to take OPSkins’ crown, but as the name gives away, the site has a very heavy bias towards CS:GO. The only other game that this site hosts for skins trading is Team Fortress 2, so if you enjoyed the fact that OPSkins had multiple games to browse items for, CS:GO Shop isn’t the site you should use, you’ll be needing BitSkins.
The site design makes it feel difficult to view multiple skins at once, something that made OPSkins so good, but this could be personal preference.
A plus on using CS:GO Shop is that their commission includes PayPal fees. The way this works is that rather than charging sellers the 5% commission by giving them 95% of an item’s sale price, instead the 5% commission comes off as you withdraw your funds from the site.
It’s certainly an alternative to OPSkins, but with the lack of games and the smaller user base – and therefore fewer skins on the site – it doesn’t compare well to BitSkins.
These are the two best sites like OPSkins we thought looked easy-to-use and with a skin library large enough to have whatever you’re after in stock.
