We have all done it before: accidentally bought a player for far more than we should have. Whether it be from console, companion app, or web app, these mistakes happen extremely frequently.

Being on the losing end of a lazy buyer purchase is frustrating, but being on the winning end can be very rewarding.

For those that have been following my blog for some time, you know that ‘Listing for Lazies’ is one of my mantras. Sitting on a full transfer list of investments without any actually listed on the market isn’t going to make you any coins. Instead, it is in your best interest to put these players up for sale constantly in hopes you make a sale from a lazy buyer.

What duration should I list for?

For those willing/able, listing for 1 hour repeatedly is in your best interest. Most lazy buyer sales happen with < 1 hour left. Overnight durations can be for ~ 6 hours depending on your schedule.

How much should I list for?

There is no exact figure, but a good general rule of thumb is to list for 15% more than the cheapest BIN or a minimum profit of 2k, whichever is greater. This would mean:

  • 1k BIN = 3.1k lazy listing
  • 2k BIN = 4.2k lazy listing
  • 3k BIN = 5.2k lazy listing
  • 4k BIN = 6.3k lazy listing
  • 5k BIN = 7.3k lazy listing
  • 6k BIN = 8.4k lazy listing
  • 7k BIN = 9.4k lazy listing
  • 8k BIN = 10.5k lazy listing
  • 9k BIN = 11.75k lazy listing
  • 10k BIN = 12.75k lazy listing
  • 15k BIN = 18k lazy listing
  • 20k BIN = 23.5k lazy listing (15% now greater than 2k)
  • 30k BIN = 34.5k lazy listing
  • 40k BIN = 46k lazy listing
  • 50k BIN = 57.5k lazy listing

Will your cards sell every time? No. More often than not, they won’t. But having passive income is an important part of building up your finances, and listing for lazies can accomplish just that.
