Affirm, but in unusuals

Recommended Posts

If you dont know affirm, its a site for doing monthly payments on merchandise, look it up for more details(i cant really explain it).


But instead of affirm its with unusuals or expensive war paints.
Like in order to do it you need at least:
10 or more keys sorta thing
at least  level 10 on steam profile.
your steam account must be atleast 60 days old
And no recent bans whats so ever. 

 

I can really see scrap.tf go big if this is a feature.

Not a bad idea but this has the potential to backfire if someone decides no to return an item that they have rented. Although a user that attempts to steal an item could then be subsequently reported by the army of scrap.tf bots and then likely banned, that item would be lost forever in that persons backpack resulting in a net loss for scrap. Or if the would-be thief moves the item from backpack to backpack after that it would also leave the possibility of losing the item altogether. There are websites that exist that do this with csgo skins like https://bitskins.com and https://app.lootbear.com  › rent. So maybe it could work out but I am unsure of how they work with security so it might be possible IDK.

Well, scrap.tf can be different from cssgo websites but instead with tf2 unusuals and skins. I can really see scrap.tf can try this from other tf2 sites.

This wouldn't really fit scrap.tf's trade model, this would be more something for https://marketplace.tf where they already have access to credit card data etc.

Marketplace.tf can be a better fit for it, but I can really see more of scrap.tf. Like what dude on the moon said, There is likely to be exploits and thieves, but if we came up with a really strict restriction like:

 

- That item wouldn't be tradeable until the the debt is paid or smth and maybe your account must have atleast 60 days old.
- A ban for 3 months or more would be really strict if the guy didnt pay the debt. 

Maybe if scrap.tf came up with making a private listing for that item on steam community market for a one time fee of $1 for that specific player(if its possible) and then making the item untradeable for a week according to Steam so that players will have a 7 day cooldown from the community market for that item on for now.

Or maybe if the bot detects a player sold the item on his/hers backpack before the debt is paid the player will receive 3 month or more ban.
I'm coming with with sick ideas let me know if you guys want to discuss it more about it
