Buy & sell players on Sorare
In the picture above you can see the Transfer Market screen. This is the place where you can buy players and there are two options to do that: New Cards & Manager Sales.
You can buy newly minted cards directly from Sorare by participating in daily auctions and bidding against other users. Bidding on an auction is easy. Simply place a bid on the Player Card you want and wait for the auction to end. If another user places a higher bid, you will be re-credited and you will get notified so that you have a chance to place a higher bid. At the end of the auction time, the user with the highest bid wins the auction and the Player Card is transferred to his Gallery.
Auction prices are dictated by the users, so sometimes you might end up in a bidding war if the player you are looking to buy is really sought after. If you really want that player, go check the Manager Sales as you might find what you are looking for and a few times it happened that players were listed on the secondary market under the price of the last auction.
Manager sales or the secondary market as many call it is the place where you can see all the players listed for sale by other users.
The cards that can be sold are Rare, Super Rare and Unique Cards (Common – white ones – cannot be traded). When looking at the Card page, if you are the actual owner, you’ll find the option to put the card up for sale.
Enter the price
Confirm by pressing sell
Your player card will then be on sale for the next 48 hours. If no one buys your card, the sale will expire and the card will remain in your gallery.
If someone buys your card, you will receive an in-game notification and an email. Your balance won’t update immediately as the transfer is underway. Once the transfer of the card is completed, then you receive the money for that card on your Sorare account. You can find the status of your card transfer on the card itself.
If you enter a tournament and one card you used in your team sells before the deadline, you will receive a message explaining that your line-up is cancelled because that card is no longer yours so you won’t be able to use it anymore.
If you enter a tournament and one card you used in your team sells after the deadline, then your team is still registered. It’s the deadline that locks in the team.
Be careful when buying on the secondary market as some users tend to overprice their players. Best what you can do is to go on Soraredata and check the player you want to buy – get information about his average price, past trades and the best available offer on the market.
There is also another way to buy players by creating direct offers.
