Communication is key! Try to be clear about what you are looking for and willing to trade whether it is in social media, the chat forums or in direct messaging.
Do your homework in terms of what you want and check what people are offering for items like it by using the filter in the forum section or by checking COMC.com or even eBay completed auctions. The more you know about what the e-Pack value is on an item, the better you’ll do in a trade.
If you are not sure on what cards you should offer in a trade you can always offer a “blank trade” in hopes of making a deal. To increase your chances of a successful trade, message the other e-Pack user to make an offer on what they think is fair.
Make sure to always rate your trades. This part of the process is especially crucial in helping other users know who the best users to trade with are. This helps make the trading community safe and enjoyable for everyone. You’ll want to look at a user’s trade rating before you go forward with a trade to make sure you are dealing with the right partner.
Trust your gut! If a deal seems too good to be true, maybe it is. Sometimes a trade offer comes your way in which something just doesn’t seem or feel right. Ultimately e-Pack users are responsible for their trades and are encouraged to use caution before completing them. Also, look to the community for help. If something doesn’t seem right you can always ask other e-Pack users to weigh in their thoughts on the trade or the user in the forums.
Be willing to accept counters or even trades you may have thought you weren’t originally willing to trade. A lot of back-and-forth counter trades are a common practice as both parties determine values so be flexible in your trading practices.
Never be afraid to ask for help and reach out to other e-Pack users. Most of them are always willing to provide advice. Involving others and sharing your experiences in the community is what makes Upper Deck e-Pack™ so much fun!
