This will be a much needed add on for buying and selling Digital items on Gameflip.
#1 Buying Digital Items
when buying a digital item before you buy check out the sellers reviews. That is always a good indicator.
Check how many items the seller has listed/ ratings. Be cautious of new sellers with 1-2 items listed and a HIGH price on that 1-2 items. ( of course it does not automatically mean they are scammers but just be cautious every step of the way.)
If they only have 1-2 items listed on their page and are cheap small items ( less than 10) its most likely they are a new seller but converse with them before your purchase.
#2 How long will it take to receive my Digital Item/game?
If you haven’t already seen on the page ( right below the item description It will show when the item(s) or games will be sent to you.
There 1 of 4 choices that will be displayed. Seller sends:
#1 Automatic Delivery:
Once you make your purchase the item will be sent Automatically to you right away.
You will receive an Email from Gameflip with your code ready to be used. ( please make sure your email address is current.)
#2 SELLER SENDS 1 Days
This means that the seller will send you the code or codes in 1 day or less.
#3 SELLER SENDS 2 days
This means the seller will send you the code or codes in 2 days or less.
#4 SELLER SENDS 3 days
This is the maximum. meaning the seller will send you the code or codes in 3 days or less.
If you need the game right away or within 1 day please contact the seller before purchase and ask them when they can send or when they are available.
Of course the best option is automatic delivery but not all listings will have it.
Please BUYERS also pay attention to see if it is region locked to your country before purchase. ( if not in the USA.)
When listing your digital items for sale make sure you check a few things.
#1 Region Locked games
make sure you game is not region locked or that it is DRM free.
If it is locked please include which countries are not included. ( the list can sometimes be long with up to 20 countries i know. It can be a pain to add all of them.
In preperation for that heres 1 way to go around it until a buyer has questions.
#1a In the region locked section just type in
(USA free but about 20 countries are Region locked. If not in the US please message me.)
If the buyer purchases without asking first please ask them what country are you in to make sure they are not in a region locked area where they cant play the game.
#2 choosing when to send your code(s)
You have a few options as listed above ^
Automatic delivery ( must enter in Correct code so once your item is bought it is Automatically sent to the buyer ( fastest transaction)
You dont have to sit and type in the code again ( or even have a conversation with the buyer ( if your not talkative) But always prefer conversation.
Send in 1 day, 2 days, or 3 days.
But the sooner you provides keys the faster you get paid.
Choose what works best for you.
#3 When do i get paid?
Digital sales are a lot different than normal sales on Gameflip.
1. When do i get paid? this is determined in when you chose your delivery method.
Remember: The buyer has already paid for the key code. But Gameflip holds it until the transaction is complete.
If you chose Automatic Delivery the code will be sent* immediately* to the buyer. Once the buyer receives the code and enters it they can rate right there and then and you get paid in less than 5 minutes. ( not every person does so right away so please wait until they are ready to rate.)
If you chose a later date to send please send as soon as possible. After you send give time for the buyer to rate you.
Please remember they have 3 days to inspect then rate you.
Thanks guys hope this helps you all.
any questions please let me know.
