CS.MONEY is not related to online gambling.

Within the CS.MONEY Platform, you can exchange, sell and/or purchase any available virtual item.
You can do that in different modes.
Requirements for all Users:
To put a virtual item on sale, exchange, or purchase it, you must:
- be eligible to use the Platform (please see section “Eligibility”);
- be authorized on the Platform and have all terms and policies accepted;
- not be banned on the Platform or Steam;
- keep your inventory open on Steam;

- use any vulnerabilities of the Platform to receive profit;

You confirm that:
- you have experience and/or knowledge to deal with virtual items, have a full understanding of their nature and framework, and are aware of all the merits, risks, and any restrictions associated with virtual items, including their purchase and use, as well as the necessary and relevant expertise and knowledge to trade, sell and/or purchase them, and accept the sole responsibility for any decisions made in respect of such items within the Platform;
- you acknowledge and fully agree that all skin transfers are final and not subject to a refund or compensation;
- you are solely responsible for reading and understanding all and any terms and conditions of any purchase, sale, or trade conducted on the Platform;
- you are a rightful holder of all the virtual items associated with
your Steam ID.
Trade mode allows you to trade (sell, buy, exchange) with CS.MONEY and Users via CS.MONEY bots.
You can buy a skin only with the use of your CS.MONEY Balance.
If the virtual item you exchanged were more expensive than the one you received, extra money from the exchange would be saved on your CS.MONEY Balance. However, there is no guarantee that there will be any available skins for that price.
If the virtual item you wish to exchange is of lesser value than what you want to obtain, you may pay the difference by using your CS.MONEY Balance.
Any money you receive from the sale of your virtual item will be saved in your CS.MONEY Balance.
CS.MONEY reserves the right to set limits per one User (or the same person under multiple accounts) for purchasing one type of skin or a category of skins to prevent monopolizing and keep the prices fair for all Users.
CS.MONEY Balance. CS.MONEY Balance is an in-Platform currency used to make transactions in Trade Mode, Sell Mode, and Auction.
- is a digital product and does not constitute fiat or cryptocurrency;
- has no value outside the Platform;
- is not withdrawable and can be used only in Trade Mode, Sell Mode, and Auction;
- is non-transferable to another platform or person;
- does not accrue interest.
CS.MONEY provides a bonus to you for depositing (purchasing) your
CS.MONEY Balance. Check the “Add Funds” page to see your bonuses.
In Sell Mode, you can sell your skins for your price.
As soon as another User buys the skin for the designated price, you receive the money to your CS.MONEY Balance. All skins sold through Sell mode have a tag indicating the price is set by a User.
A User’s offer is valid for 30 days.
Any transfer of a skin in Trade Mode or Sell mode will be performed technically through the CS.MONEY bot.
CS.MONEY reserves the right to set limits on the prices of virtual
items set by Users in Sell Mode. User sell price shall not exceed
CS.MONEY’s sell price for the same virtual item by the percentage set by
CS.MONEY. The maximum percentage of the excess (the limit) is displayed
on the Sell Mode page when placing a virtual item for sale.
You can purchase a virtual item at the Auction.
If you wish to purchase a virtual item at the Auction, you shall place your bid against other proposed bids.
When you bid on a virtual item at an auction, you are obliged to buy the item if you win for your bid price.
You can not cancel your bid once it is made.
The total sum of your concurrent bids is equal to your current CS.MONEY Balance multiplied by 3, which enables you to bid for different skins at the same time.
The highest bidder wins the auction on a skin when the auction ends. We will withdraw the price of the skin from your CS.MONEY Balance and initiate the transfer of the skin to you.
You can only pay for the virtual item with your CS.MONEY Balance. Your CS.MONEY Balance shall have sufficient funds to pay for the item at the end of the auction.
If, at the end of the auction, your CS.MONEY Balance is insufficient to pay for the virtual item, the second bidder with sufficient CS.MONEY Balance will be considered the winner.
Auctions are run by CS.MONEY only. Users cannot run an auction.
The Market allows you to trade skins with other Users without a CS.MONEY bot for your own prices and withdraw the profit.
To sell your skin on the Market, you should:
- download CS.MONEY mobile application or Market extension;
- provide your Steam API key, and only then
- create a sale offer using CS.MONEY mobile application or Market extension.
If you create a sale offer and transfer a skin without using CS.MONEY mobile application or Market extension, you will not get money for the skin and/or a refund for such transfer as this trade will not be tracked by CS.MONEY and will be considered as made outside of CS.MONEY Platform.
When someone wants to buy your skin, you get a notification. You have 12 hours from receiving the notification to transfer the skin to the buyer. If you fail to do so, your account will receive an “Offline” status. “Offline” status means that your offers will not appear on the Market until you manually change your status. Your account will be blocked until you cancel the trade offer.
When you create an offer for sale on CS.MONEY, CS.MONEY makes a trade offer on Steam on your behalf. The trade offer will have a description with a trade offer unique number. The sale of a skin on CS.MONEY depends on the status of this Steam trade offer.
CS.MONEY is not responsible for:
- trade offers created by a User outside of CS.MONEY Platform regarding the skins offered by such User on CS.MONEY, including trade offers created without CS.MONEY mobile application or Market extension;
- any consequences of providing a third party’s Steam API Key;
- any consequences that the creation of multiple trade offers may entail.
After transferring the skin, you will get the price of the skin less CS.MONEY commission to your Market Balance (see section CS.MONEY Commission).
All profit from the sale of your skins will be accumulated on your Market Balance.

commission as stated above.
When users sell specific skins to CS.MONEY using Trade Mode, they can
receive cashback. This cashback will be determined based on the CS.MONEY
price of the skin and can range from 2.5% to 9%. Skins eligible for
cashback will be labeled accordingly, indicating the cashback amount.
