Commonly referred to as ÜV and popular in the german Fut trading community, this can be a VERY effective more “hands off” method of trading that doesn’t require much actual time searching for players if you compare it to more time intensive trading methods like Icon flipping (without DEALFINDER) or sniping.
It also doesn’t require much research into trends or predicting cards will rise. So lets dive into one of the most effective sniping methods on FIFA21
Identify players that you think will be in demand, you can use the futbin “popular players” tab to help you find suitable candidates, there should also be room to make a profit so avoid buying players when they are close to their price cap.
There is also a really effective method that is in somewhat of a grey area that takes advantage of overlapping price ranges of special cards where you can purchase a cheaper, lower rated version and list it slightly cheaper than the current market price of the higher rated card. But thats nasty and we don’t do that. No no no.
The best way to pick up targets is to check your total budget and divide it by 100.
You want 100 players on your list selling at all times.
- Work out your budget per player
- head over to futbin
- filter the minimum price to 5k below your per player budget and
- max price your per player maximum budget.
Then filter by popularity as mentioned above.
example – you have an 800k budget this gives you 8k per player
Make sure you diversify the cards you pick up, try to buy as many different cards as you can, over time you can notice trends of which ones sell most often and I’d encourage you to track this.
The cards you go for should be useable in teams so 81 and up is recommended, along with having appropriate chemistry styles for the position and all cards should either be fresh ( 7 contracts) or with 99 contracts.
Don’t list the player for Max Bin, using the FUTSTARZ toolbar (available for free here) you can use the get price function which will return the players current market price.
I would aim for 1k profit on cards below 5k and between 5k -20k profit on cards valued up to 100k. So make sure you buy them little under market rate and then sell them for little over market rate – with a large enough gap to pay the 5% EA tax. I normally buy for 5% under market rate if possible and sell for 5%-10% over market rate.
You must ensure that listings are always for 1hr and you need to constantly relist every hour.
When you’re sleeping list for 12hrs before you go to bed.
Once you have the coins to invest 100k per player you would be far better off using the DEALFINDER as even with 30 minutes of picking up players you would make more profit than using this method.
This is a fantastic alternative to those without the means to use our extension however.
The best time to pick up players is on a Sunday evening when weekend league sell off is in full swing or whenever you spot an investing opportunity (card crashes in price for example).
