BitSkins is a platform designed and meant to buy and sell CSGO skins. The company protects both buyers and sellers from scams by implementing verification measures. One of the star features of the platform is the wide array of skins available for sale. Plus, the number of buyers looking for skins has also tremendously increased over the years.
BitSkins is a platform for skin trading created by a group of “veterans from the gaming and payments industries.” Its office is registered in San Francisco, CA. Their CEO’s name is Atif Nazir. (the information is taken from their website).
Buying a skin is pretty simple. All that’s required is to click on the ‘add to cart’ button and then checkout. Though you’ll need to sign in with a verified STEAM account. Plus any skins you will be deposited to that account. The company charges a 5% fee off every sale. Though higher tier accounts are subject to lower fee since the company encourages bulk sellers.
The domain was registered in July 2015, but the more noticeable activity began in October 2015.
Traditionally, the biggest audience comes from the USA. Germany and Russia with their 2nd and 3rd places are far behind.

The trading process is simple. Just pick one of two types of trade (regular and bulk) and put the price on your items. The website also suggests a list of items which are predicted to sell under 30 seconds in their “Sell Instantly” tab. There is one more option for making a sale right on Steam – you can find instructions to this method in “Sell Items (Quick List)” tab.
BitSkins is a rather simple website with a complex UI. There’s nothing special about it like exciting promotions, giveaways or membership bonus. But it looks like a reliable and honest platform.
