TRADING WITH GOLDS! NON IN-FORM TRADING (LOW COIN START)

EXPLANATION OF THIS METHOD

This method relies on lazy buyers seeing your card and clicking buy now. PLEASE be aware for this to happen you MUST relist often and stock a good variety of cards.
Step 1 - Finding a desirable card
The first thing to do is create a shortlist of players you wish to work with. I find the EASIEST way to do this is use a site such as FUTHead/Futbin and search for popular players. These will usually be people with high pace, good leagues and good links. The more popular the player, the more potential buyers.
Step 2 - Buy the player
The good thing about this method is you don't need to wait around hours for a good deal. Simply buy the player you want at the lowest current BIN. There has been some debate over the years on what the "correct" amount of a card is. Some people will buy 100 separate players and others will buy 10 cards of 10 different players. The truth is find what works best for you.
If you have plenty of time on your hands I believe going for 100 different cards is the way to go. If you have less time go for less players as it will be quicker to restock.
I personally go for a max of 5 cards per player depending on how well they sell. Some players I will only ever have 1 card of.
Step 3 - Relist player at a higher price than you paid
It really is as easy as that. I always double the buy price of each player I'm using, up to about 10k (ie if I buy someone for 2k I will usually look to sell for 4k). Some people are more/less ambitious with margin but again, use trial and error to figure out what is best for you.

This method is in my opinion the EASIEST way to make coins on Fifa. I enjoy using it due to the fact I can put in as much effort as I want and still get a steady return and not have to follow market trends. It works all year long but is best at peak times due to having a larger amount of users looking for players.

    I like the sound of the this method but it doesn’t say how many coins you need to start with as a guide?

    Love this method, gave 19 a miss so looking forward to grinding this in 20!

    Made silly coins from this the last couple of years so definitely going at it again if I can be bothered to relist regularly!

    Gl guys, I'm giving 20 a miss but theres so much coins to be made from this method. Works throughout the year and is most effective for up to about a million of stock.

    Dont forget to buy the high rated players early on ready to flip after the SBCs. That's the double bubble

    I actually persisted with this last year and it was a big part of ending on around 14 million transfer profit. I was a bit late to the party with it but it will be my primary coin making method this year. I love packs and will still open some but nowhere near as many because this is so much more profitable.

    I will start with off with this, how many coins would you say you need to move over /diversify to the IF method? I am thinking 150k or so and then put most of the coins in informs or just do a 50 50 split from the start? This method is probably more efficient at first but later on Inforn trading probably takes less effort, although a bit of both is good.
  • Great topic again, always a good way to earn coins. Goodluck all!

    I dont move off of this until about a mil. IF trading is very slow early on also. Grab a couple to hoard in your club for a few weeks but I wouldn't put too much in trying to flip them
  • I join this too. This Will be my first year without buying FP (I hope)

    The key is not to lose hope and keep resisting. Easy coins

    Thanks for the advice, how long did it take you to make a mill? Bare in mind I will probably start off with not that many coins as I am not spending any money, so I might take a bit longer for me.

    I try to start off with about 100k from coin boosts packs etc (depending on early access release be sure to play rivals or sb for a quick boost) and aim be be near a milwithin a week or so.
    First few days with my 100k is stocking cheap 2-3k players until list is full, once I have a full list with excess coins I start getting a few pricier players (7.5-15kish) and then keep a good mix. With the spare coins from this I'll look at buying everything that looks overpriced if an sbc was to arrive and relist the desirable ones and store the useless ones until the time comes

    1 mill in a week or so ! That's mad. I would have been happy just to double my coins first week.

    If you think that's mad Blarix will probs have 10 by then :joy:

    A week is rough from memory, I'll go back and have a look later. It's hard to pinpoint exactly what I have early on because I try and hoard as much as possible. Coins aside the key is to fill up the tp as early as possible and then use the excess coins to start filling approx. Half (imo) with slightly more desirable players

    Do you have a cheap team at the same time as trading until you hit a certain amount, or do you gradually build your team up while you trade?

    Questions are reasonable, not looking forward to the "I bought this player and it hasn't sold in 6 minutes, what should I do?" comments

    I didn't start this method until about two weeks in last year, will try and remember to start from the beginning this time.
