PlayerAuctions makes it safe to buy from our members by securing your payment and guaranteeing delivery.

  • Buyer creates order and send payment to PlayerAuctions
  • PlayerGuardian secures payment
  • Seller completes delivery within delivery guarantee
  • Buyer confirm delivery
  • Seller receives disbursement

Option 1: In-game, Face to Face Delivery

Sellers will select this method of delivery if they intend to meet your character in-game with one of their own characters. Usually a seller will coordinate a time and location in-game to meet your character.


  • Be sure to confirm the time to account for time zone differences
  • Confirm which Shard or Server the delivery is to take place in case your game world has more than one.
  • Never, under any circumstances, return gold, item, etc. to the delivery character if ever asked. In the event the seller asks you to, please take A screenshot and report this to PlayerAuctions Customer Support.

Option 2: In-game Mailbox delivery.

Some sellers will select the option to deliver gold or items directly to an in-game mailbox. This option is less popular for larger Games like WoW, but is still viable amongst other games. This option can be convenient for smaller orders because you do not need to coordinate time of delivery.

Low Prices: Prices set by other players or PowerSellers on PlayerAuctions are significantly lower than the high markups you would find on expensive retail sites.

Guaranteed Security: PlayerAuctions is quite simply the most secure place to buy and sell MMO game assets. Through PlayerGuardian, you are 100% guaranteed full and as-described delivery, or your money back.

Reliable Delivery Speed: PlayerAuctions calculates each seller's average delivery speed from the seller's latest successfully completed deliveries, which gives you a clear idea of how fast the seller will deliver your order.

To see how quickly the seller may deliver your order, refer to the seller's delivery guarantee period, which is their promise to complete delivery within a certain timeframe after your payment is securely sent to PlayerAuctions and is successfully verified. Each seller sets their delivery guarantee period independent of PlayerAuctions. In the event that the seller is not able to complete the delivery within their guaranteed time, you may cancel the order without penalty for a hassle-free refund from PlayerAuctions.

PlayerAuctions guarantees that the seller will deliver your order, or your money back. The overwhelming majority of transactions through our site occur successfully. As for the very exceptional cases, you can rest assured that they have been carefully considered by our systems and processes, and we are well prepared to handle them in the rare event that they do occur.

About DOTA 2 Items

DOTA2 was the popular MOBA that got into the game too late. Popular by definition, DOTA sprung from its predecessor, DOTA, which, although it not the first MOBA to have been developed, was certainly one that capitalized on a huge franchise base with a big demographic of gamers (those specifically fans of the Warcraft franchise).

The largest change to the DOTA landscape in DOTA was the inclusion of items. By this, we're not talking about the items in game that give heroes stat bonuses or additional abilities, but cosmetic items that change the appearances of heroes, wards, and couriers, aka Skins. These skins, though they do not have any game-changing effects, are widely sought after by many players because of the added coolness their looks give. In addition, a lot of Dota skins serve as status symbols, causing other players to see you as elite or prestigious if they see you wielding something rare. Having said that, it should be obvious that not all Dota 2 skins are created equal. Therefore, it pays to have knowledge on them, especially if you have plans on taking on the Dota 2 marketplace.

Dota 2 Skins: A Short Guide

There are many different types of skins in the game - including, wards, couriers, gems, and tools. Equipment modifies a hero's look, so there are cosmetic benefits to updating with the various types of in-game skins available. Each specific hero has specific equipment that only they can use, and their equipment slots differ from each other. Taunts also count as equipment, as they give extra animation and lines on a hero whenever they successfully kill. These equipment, which come either individually or in sets, can be modified in many different ways via tools, or can have additional effects when you put gems on their sockets.

There are different kinds of gems: ethereal gems, which give an unusual particle effect (glowing) on couriers; prismatic gems, which alter the unusual particle effect (glowing) on the item it's slotted on, kinetic gem, hero-specific gems that either add or modify an items' animation, inscribed gem, which records particular achievements; spectator gem, which counts how many games you have watched; and ascendant gem, which records given gifts and victories achieved during the Beta phase.

These items are then categorized as common, Uncommon, Rare, Mythical, Legendary, and the Arcana. While all of them modify the aesthetics of a courier, it is mostly the Mythical, Legendary, and the Arcana that modify both the skill effects and icons of the hero they can be equipped on.

Dota 2 Marketplace; Dota 2 Steam Market

There are many reasons why you should check out the Dota 2 marketplace. Because even though you can buy skins directly from Valve, the marketplace is rife with skins that are sold for a much cheaper prices elsewhere, such as on PlayerAuctions. Additionally, you can find skins that are not being sold or no longer being sold by Steam, such as achievement rewards and limited-time skins. A few examples of items that you can only get with Dota 2 trade would be Platinum and Golden Baby Roshans (couriers), Ursa's Alpine Stalker Set, and the fabled Legacy Unusual Wardog, which was once sold for around $38,000, the highest price a Dota 2 item has ever fetched. The Steam marketplace caps it for sale offers at $250, which, any seller would tell you, hardly anyone needs that much in steam credit for purchasing games anyway. That is why many people trade outside the system, because ascribing value to one's game play is a powerful intrinsic motivator to keep someone engaged, and invested in a game environment.

With all of those items that you can find in the Dota 2 marketplace, it's easy to understand why people are so actively involved in Dota 2 trade. There is, however, one grave problem in Dota 2 trading: there are many untrustworthy sellers, as well as scam sites that will swindle you of your money and phish your personal info. Thankfully, there is a place where you can safely trade with your fellow players: PlayerAuctions.
