Guide to Buy Coins Safely in Fifa 16

There is nothing much more talked about in the gaming community as coin buying. Although there are actually risks to it, many still resort to this easy solution to their coin needs. This article will walk you through how to buy fifa 16 coin safely including strategies to choose a legit supplier with reasonable price.

And if you try to see how EA has been responding to this issue, you will realize that there is a rather mediocre move on their part too. For example, watch any FIFA event and probability is, you can see one or two YouTube personality in there who is sponsored by a coin selling site. The sites being the origin of this practice. No matter what people think, I still believe that EA doesn’t have the resources to stop all the coin selling site there is. Because as soon they ban one, another one appears. Why, you ask? Because demand for them remains high. Many players will still prefer to buy coins than buy millions worth in packs and get nothing from them. So how do you go about doing this, if the need arises? We tell you how.

Buying Fifa 16 Coins Safely

Purchasing FIFA 16 coins from a 3rd party RMT supplier is considered as a risky activity by many people. But a lot of them still would like to do it because it’s an easy way to enjoy the game more, without having to spend hours and hours in order to have enough fund for their favorite star. Or worse, spending hundreds of dollar on the game pack without getting anything in return.

Buying Fifa coins isn’t risky at all if you know how to do it safely. Here’s how:

Bot Coins Vs. Glitch Coins

Most of the RMT suppliers uses two ways to farm gold: bot coins and glitch coins. Bot coins is about digging down to the ultimate team market and finding out which cheap player can be sold high automatically. It’s the same way as buying stock. Aims for the cheap one and has a possible to grow high. Then, sell it when the time is right. However, only a patient person who has an eagle eye will be able to do this, and RMT suppliers are just one of them.

Glitch coins is seriously more dangerous. It’s about hacking the system itself to generate free coins. But, of course, it’s not hard at all for the Fifa administrator to track the source of this hacked gold and ban all account related to it.

But how do you know which supplier use the bot coins and which one use the glitch coins. Actually, there’s no way to know it. However, this is not a thing you should worry about. The reputable and trusted suppliers know their roles and the risk of selling glitch coins. They will not do it as it could harm them in the long run. Since I have been buying fifa coins since the Fifa 14, my account never get banned. One of the reason is I only purchase from a reputable supplier.

Use Different Accounts and Buy in Small Amounts

Register different accounts and buy coins from each of them. When you have the coins, you can then transfer them between your different accounts. This also works if you want to buy coins in large amounts, by splitting them up into smaller amounts and placed on your different accounts.

Trade the Right Cards

Set a reasonable amount for the cards that you were trying to trade. When buying coins, choose the cards that have decent prices.

Find the Right Time to Trade

Wait for weekends, especially when the league is about to end, or the release of the Team of the Week. During these time, prices will usually fluctuate because of several player deals. You can then use them to conceal yourself while buying coins. EA will find it rather difficult to determine if the trading going on was indeed coin buying or not. I usually wait for these times to buy my own coins.

Choosing a Legit Supplier

The most important process in buying FIFA 16 coins is to choose the right supplier for it. Whether your plan to exchange some dollars into FIFA coins will be successful or not is mainly based on supplier you are dealing with. And, of course, this is the main question for all buyers, especially a beginner, to ask how to choose a reliable supplier when there are hundreds of shops out there. There are 7 steps I usually do when I want to try a new legit supplier and it never disappoints

me. Read on.

Whois

A good and reliable shop should have been running in this industry for quite a while already. They would know how to make the selling process as smooth as silk without a chance for your account to get banned. And Whois is an important tool to help us check a shop’s history including who is running the site, origin country, and registration date.

Of course, some information could not be trusted. We all know that most of the suppliers are from either China or Hong Kong although it shows the country of residence as the United State in Whois. But that doesn’t matter at all. What we want to take a look at here is, the registration date. If any shop is just registered within a year, avoid them. It proves that they are a newbie in the field or even a scammer that just set up an RMT shop to scam your dollars.

On the other hand, if any shop has been running for more than 5 years, they are quite trusted.

Alexa

Http://www.alexa.com/ is a web traffic data and analytics tool developed by Amazon.com. Although the number and calculation isn’t that accurate, since it can only gather data from those who installed its plugin, it gives us a general idea of the number of traffic on a site.

When you take a look at it, remember: the lower the better. From my personal experience, any suppliers that have an Alexa of less than 1.5 million could be somehow reliable. It means that they have some amount of customers using their coin-selling service already. Usually, a new and scammed supplier will have an Alexa of more than 5m or, worst, n/a, which means the data isn’t enough to estimate traffic.

English Proficiency

Please do not misunderstand me. This is not about discrimination about language at all, but it means how professional the supplier is. Think of it as something like when you care for something, you will make that thing good although you might not necessarily be good at it. Of course, FIFA 16 coins suppliers are usually from either China or Hong Kong, which is the biggest RMT marketplace in the world. Their English, especially for suppliers from China, might not be good since it’s not their first language. But from my experience, a reliable supplier usually has good English on their site in all sections.

Customer Review

NEVER be tempted by a long list of super positive testimonials from a supplier website since this part could be easily made by the supplier itself. And avoid any site that only has amazing reviews. A legit customer review should be a mix between positive and negative in several sentences, not something like “I love this shop”, “It’s so good”, “Fast and cheap”, etc.

Instead, look for a 3rd party review website where a customer could leave their ‘real’ feedback like Trustpilot or mmobux.com. It’s more reliable this way.

Support

Customer support will give you an idea how reliable the supplier you are planning to use services from. A trusted and professional supplier can answer all of your questions politely, quickly, and, of course, with good English. If any supplier takes too long to answer your simple question like “how long when the gold be delivered”, avoid them.

I personally love to contact support before buying FIFA 16 coins although I have been using their service several times already. This is to make sure that they have enough stocks for me and ensure a delivery speed within timely manner. Frankly, sometimes I even chatted with them as a friend and ask stuff about their hometown. Think of it as a cultural exchange.

Payment Gateway

Payment gateway is a very sensitive issue. If you put your credit card information carelessly into whatever supplier site, you have a chance to be scammed. Maybe next day in the morning, you will find out that your credit card was used in buying a product that you haven’t even heard of. You would want to end up in this situation, as clearing up a credit card bill can be an absolute pain in the a*s sometimes.

It’s quite a rare sight to see a legit supplier collecting credit card information directly at their site. Instead, they will use a reputable payment gateway like PayPal, ClickBank, Skrill, and so on. And it’s definitely recommended to pay only through these gateways. At least, you could file a dispute and ask for a refund in case your FIFA 16 coins will never be delivered.

Account Information

Remember: a supplier does not need your account information in order to give you gold. If you find any site asking for it, abort any transaction. However, sometimes they might ask for your personal information and even request you to show your ID card. This is quite a normal procedure especially when purchasing a large amount of order to verify that you are indeed a real customer, not a scammer. Truth be told, they are afraid of getting scammed like you as well. But make sure to cross out your sensitive information such as ID card number, license number, and so on before sending it to them. They just only want to see your name on a card.

With these 7 steps of verification, your chances of getting scammed is almost down to zero. I did this every time I want to try out a new supplier and I have never been scammed ever since.

Another Alternative Guide To Coin Buying

Aside from coin buying, there are other ways of making coins. The full ultimate gold making guide is here. Here are some of them:

The One Player Strategy

This involves using one player to trade and making a transfer list consisting of only that specific player. Also, there will be some people who will not actually know how much the market value of that specific player is. In addition to that, the transfer list limit can be upgraded. Choose a player who might just become popular in the future or who has the possibility to do well. I choose the ones who might not be popular right now, but can be in the future.

The Mass Bidding Method

You start by finding out a player’s average price. Don’t forget to add another 5% as compensation for the tax. Then add another percentage for your targeted price. Mass bidding may not be possible at all times, as it will need the element of luck, but many have reported successfully getting some amount of profit from it.

List your players at appropriate times. Off peak season might give you less profit than weekends, for example. I prefer listing during Saturdays when there are more people online.

Add or decrease the price and see how it goes.

People who do not give much thought to the squad they are putting together are good targets for this strategy. They will only try to do it as fast as they can, look for best price, and get it over with it.

And since these people see the same price range on your listing, they will realize that they are actually being given the right value for a player.

Also, remember that people will most probably also play Ultimate Team and not give much thought to it. All they want to do is play as much as they can and buy the first or second player they see. This way you take advantage of casual players who do not really check prices that much.

Finding the right price is also important. Or for appropriate time, go for a higher price, which will also need you to buy at higher price.

Anyone who has a consistent demand is a good candidate for this method. For example a good defender.

Upgrading Your Listed Player

What to do next is upgrade the players that you have in your listing. Also, find the right player who other people will not also go for, as this way, you will have less competition. When you do this, your value goes higher and you try to play more, which will result to you investing in the more in-demand players.

FIFA 16 Price Ranges To Stay

Last year, there were argument for and against the FUT price ranges. Recently, EA Sports have made confirmations that the price ranges will stay to make the game fair for all players.

This confirmation was repeated when Gilliard Lopes replied to a Twitter query about the price ranges. He tweeted back a reply not only regarding the FUT price range status, but also as to the reason why they are firm on letting them remain:

As soon as that tweet appeared, more queries came from FIFA long-time fans. Owing to their experiences in FIFA 15 and with the not-so-satisfied fans, their inquiries went so much as the producer ended up explaining more in-depth as to how it will go about in FIFA 16. He added:  

Nevertheless, there are some who don’t agree with the FUT price ranges. As far as Electronic Arts’s side of the story goes, “The whole price ranges in 16 debate before the game is even out is pointless because everyone is basing their opinions on the 15 market. Illegal FIFA coins -> massive price inflation. People bought Messi for 4M then price ranges came in, so of course they will not sell for 400k. But in a brand new marketplace starting from scratch, without the inflation, Messis would be bought and sold for reasonable prices. ”
