IF Trading Guidelines

The method works by a large amount of cards being placed on the market at an inflated price. It relies on lazy buyers who use the console (not proven) who do not take the time to search for the lowest price on players. They search the market and see all the players up at a set price and buy a player, thinking that must be his going rate. There are plenty of theories on why this works, but that's the one i'm going with!

- Please do not argue with each other! The thread will be locked if this occurs.

- Sticking together with prices etc will help each other make coins and keep bickering to a minimum.

- Buy times will be discussed in the thread i'm sure. I propose a buy within a percentage of the lowest range. Something like, do not buy cards unless they are within 5% of their MIN.

- All cards dealt with are 'cheap' IF's, please keep the thread on topic where possible.

- Some people stick to 8-10 cards of the same player. No more no less. Some others prefer just having 1 of each card, test both out & see what works best for you.

- When you sell a card, replace it with another where possible. It's always encouraging to post pics of your sales if you can. This keeps others up to date on sale prices and also helps others who may not have had a sale yet.

- As stated, this relies on a modicum of luck. This is not a quick flip method for making coins and does require some patience/faith. So do not start this method if you cannot spare the coins. Sales may come in the first hour, they may require a few days. This is not an exact science but it does work.

- Chem Cards and Position changes are not required but MAY help with a sale. I would also advise to buy fresh cards for attacking players but it is NOT necessary.

- Stick to the buy prices you agree on. Buying too high will reduce the profit margins for everyone (including yourself).

- Be aware of upcoming events & SBCS which could have an effect on any IF's you are holding/looking to buy. Be smart.

- Above all, respect one another.

    I might trade with golds first though as I think you need atleast 150k or so to make the inform method effective.

    Ready to have a crack again. I fell off FIFA 19 at the second half of its year. Did it grow in sales towards the end?

    It fell off once March hit, I stopped IF trading then. Then there were big coins to be made in the early summer when informs went out of packs, but by that point I wasnt trading apart from a few Tots sales mid August after Tots went out of packs. Peak Inform trading time is November to Febuary IMO.

    I think the fact that there are no Icon sbcs may impact Inform trading quite significantly. However, I might be wrong and they might be big fluctuations in Sbc fodder IF prices, becuase when there is no Promos and no decent sbcs that require IFS, fodder IFS will be really low becuase of there being no icon sbcs and then can be bought to sell for promo periods like Futmas.

    This method worked just fine before icon SBCs and it’ll work just fine afterwards icon SBCs imo.

    There will be an impact but I can’t see it being anything catastrophic.

    Yeah, the icon SBCs were only a bonus. The amount of special card releases are ridiculous these days, there will still be SBCs where informs will come up trumps. Only real dedicated players did the Icon SBCs really

    They could UP the amount of IF's needed for Icon SBC's.
