One of the most interesting features on the Steam platform is the ability to sell items on their marketplace. You can sell anything from in game items to Steam trading cards. In fact some of these items can be worth hundreds or even thousands of dollars. You might even have a few in your Steam collection that you didn’t realise were worth so much.
In this article we are going to take a look at how you can sell items as fast as possible on the Steam marketplace. Let’s jump in and get started.
What is The Steam Marketplace?
The Steam Marketplace is a place where users can buy and sell certain in game items such as skins, trading cards, emotes and other Steam based items. Steam users can make real money from selling their in game items which can then be used to purchase other games or items on the Steam store. Unfortunately there is currently no way to directly withdraw this money to your bank or Paypal.

The chrome extension is called Augmented steam. This extension adds two buttons to your your Steam Marketplace.
Quick Sell – Quick sell allows you to instantly undercut all listings for the same item on the market. This means you will be the cheapest item on the marketplace and therefore sell first. While this isn’t instant, it is the best way to get the most value for your items and still sell fairly quickly.
Instant Sell – Instant sell looks for the highest price buy order on the market and prices your item at that price. This means that your item will be instantly purchased by the buy order getting you your money instantly.
