From these factors we’ve just discussed you can now choose the players you want and start to trade with them. So, with the 10- 20,000 FIFA 20 coins that you have you need to be looking at players under 2,000 in terms of maximum bin price each. Now, there are three effective ways of finding profit with the players that you have chosen once you have found their value.
To find the base value of a set player there are 2 main ways to do this. Firstly, place 6 of the player you’ve chosen with the chemistry style in your watch list, and do an average of the final price paid on all the received bids on those players. Secondly, search the player with a set buy now price, and keep lowering the price until there are only 3 or 4 cards on the market for that price, this is the bottom end of the market, if you can buy a player for lower than this then you are definitely going to make a profit on the player.
So, if you have the value of a player set, you can now search for the bargains (the more base values for players you have in your head, the more players you can buy and in turn, the more profit you can make).
Like we said, there are three main ways to find the player for the amount you want to spend.
1. Search the player specifically.
Doing your searching is now very easy, just type in the name in the search bar and you’re done. If we are working on a basis that the value of the player is around the 2,000 coins mark, we would place bids of 1,000 to 1,500 coins on all of them. This would be leaving a decent enough profit when sold. The good part about selling lower value players is the fact that they sell a lot more frequently than the higher value players, so you can expect a fairly decent amount of regular profit, considering that you have a full transfer list and continuously keep building up your stock of players. So, just as an example you have bought a Danny Welbeck card and placed him up for auction, with a start price of 1.9k and a buy it now price of 2k, it’s important not to be greedy with the price you set, keep it to the midrange of the market, and always put a BIN (buy it now) price on the player, as a lot of people don’t want to wait around for the auction to end. Once he is up for auction, you should keep rechecking every hour and seeing which players have sold, and relisting those that haven’t. It is a lot easier to relist your auctions now that most phones have EASFC apps so you can do this on the go, without having to sit by your console all day. Another great feature to make trading even easier was the relist ALL option so now you don’t have to list every player individually.So, keep relisting the player until all have sold but do not lower the price unless the player has gone through a full day of being relisted without being sold (make sure you list lower value players on 1 hour sales, because there are so many of them on the market, longer
auctions just won’t get seen). So like we say, just keep relisting until they are all sold, and then once they are gone, you have your profit ready to start the whole process again the next day. This is a steady profit method, which if you get right, will give you a guaranteed return and the amount of hours you put into it will determine how much profit you can make per day. The more you trade the better you’ll become at it and inevitably, the more profit you’ll see in return.
2. Search chemistry style and price only
This is a broader, and we believe, more successful trading method. All you would do for this is search a popular formation (Hunter, Hawk, Shadow, Engine, Anchor) and set a price range of say 1-10k for example. Then, scroll through the players and place bids on every one that you think will turn a profit, again, it’s best not to get in bidding wars and keep on bidding for players until you have spent all your coins. Using this method it’s easy to build up a database of player prices which you should make a note of and check for changes daily. Choose a group of popular players (fast, strong, good leagues, popular clubs) and get to learn what they consistently sell for, start off with a smaller group of players, building up your knowledge, and slowly expand making notes on the spread sheet or a little notebook which you are using. This can be applied from 1k players to 500k+ players, once you know a players value, you know how much profit can be made from buying them at a certain price (always remember to bear in mind to calculate profit after the 5% EA tax). When you are using this and other trading methods, be on the lookout for players that have been set a starting price which is way below the going rate, this way there is much more of a chance that you will be able to buy them on the cheap. As with most FIFA auctions, a lot of bidding will occur close to the 30 second countdown so an effective way to do this is to wait until that mark, placing last minute bids on the players that are just about to finish. Another thing you can do if you really want a player and you think you can make a decent profit, is waiting right until the very last seconds to make your bid. This ometimes works because all the other bidders have considered the auction finished and are no longer watching it.
3. The 59th minute
This is a very popular way of making FIFA 20 coins, but can be difficult because so many people do it. This rule is based on players being listed for a buy now price of significantly lower than their value (this can be accidentally if people have just got a player in a pack and aren’t sure of their price or just people wanting really quick coins). This is quite frequent and because so many players are listed on an hourly basis, there are literally thousands of bargains to be had. Again this is easier if you narrow down your search parameters so that it is easier to scroll through to get to the 58th/59th minute (if you just search gold or silver players, there will be thousands of pages and you’ll never get to the 59th m
inute!) Once you are close to the hour mark you will see players going for slightly lower than their going rate, the longer the player is on auction, the higher the chance of him being seen and bought, but the best profits are to be found within the first 20 seconds of the player being listed. You need to have the player values set in stone in your head or written down somewhere, because if the player is listed at a bargain price, you will need to buy without hesitation or risk missing out to someone else using this method.
Again, this can be used with players right through the value scale. Though if you are searching for higher value players you will have to be very, very patient as there are less of these players around which also means there are less bargains to be had from undervalued listings. A really effective way to utilise the 59th minute is to focus on some of the silver and bronze overpowered players. People usually know Messi is worth over a million coins, but a lot of people don’t play with silvers and don’t know there are lots of desirable silver players that are actually worth far more than a high percentage of the Gold players. So, you might pick up a few if you try to find silver and bronze players in the 59th minute.
Why this method has lost a lot of efficiency and will continue to do so…
The first reason is that Autobuyers are direct competitors to 59th minute traders, and they have gotten increasingly popular from FIFA 13 right through to the current day. EA believe this is fully clamped down on and under control, but it isn’t. Because there are so many out there it’s almost impossible to compete with them, particularly, with the most popular players. Yes this has died down a little, because of the clamp down by EA and the price ranges that were introduced but comparing price is probably the best option rather down doing what we have said below.
Our opinion of the 59th minute is this. Adapt it to suit your needs. Scrolling through hundreds of pages is so tedious and time consuming it is unreal.
If you are trying this method out with just a 20,000 coin total you’re just wasting your time.
If you have been trading a while then this WILL have happened to you. You were unsure of a players sale price so you have listed that player at what you think will be a good price and it is bought within seconds. This is the autobuyers or people who trade for a living, no doubt.
To conclude our thoughts on this method: The 59th minute method has become too popular, therefore, limiting it’s effectiveness. There is one great tip we can offer you to get this method working in your favour and we had a huge amount of success with this on FIFA 10(not so much on 15 but back to form on 16 and 17).Another way to use this method is to search for a single player and then set the buy now maximum price at a price you know you can make guaranteed profit. Start low and then work your way up changing the max BIN price by one increment every time. For example, you know a player will sell for 2,500 with a basic chemistry style so start searching for max BIN price around the 1,600 mark. If nothing appears, then changed it to 1,700 and follow that pattern until you no longer think the investment is worth it
