How to Calculate Steam Inventory Value
Before we dive in and see how the inventory value calculating process goes, let me cheer you up by saying that you won't be forced to add up or calculate any numbers on your own. There are calculators that do this type of work for you. The things you have to do in order to set this up are simple and shouldn't take you more than a few minutes. But still, we need to go over the steps and set you on the right path towards calculating your Steam inventory value and CS:GO inventory value in particular.
Choose an Online CS:GO Inventory Value Calculator
Sure, you could go the old-fashioned way and spend countless hours adding up the price of each of your skins in your Steam CS:GO inventory. However, there is a much easier way to do this online that is very safe and won't compromise your valuable CS:GO skins and items. This includes Steam inventory value calculators. Some of the most popular choices you could try out include:
- CSGO Backpack
- CSGO Exchange
How to Use CSGO Inventory Worth Calculators?
Setting everything up and actually using a Steam inventory value calculator is pretty easy, given that you've set your Steam profile to public and located your Steam Trade URL. If you don't know how to do this, let's briefly explain how to set it up and move on to the next step. So, in order to get your Steam Trade URL, you need to do the following steps:
Locating Steam Trade URL
Step 1: Launch Steam
Step 2: Open your Steam profile and click on “Edit Profile”
Step 3: Go to “Privacy Settings” and set Steam Profile to “Public”
Step 4: Hover over your Steam Username and click on “Inventory”
Step 5: Click on “Trade Offers” and then on “Who can send me Trade Offers?”
Step 6: Find and copy your Steam Trade URL or create a new one
Calculating Steam Inventory Value
Now comes the part where you actually start seeing some hopefully impressive numbers. After you've copied your Steam Trade URL, you're going to use it on one of these sites to check the value of your Steam and CS:GO inventory.
First, you need to log on to the sites using your Steam account. Don't worry, as you don't have to type in your Steam account credentials, simply click on the option to log in through Steam and you're all good. For the ones that don't require a log-in, you can use your Steam Trade URL as well.
If you log in with Steam, it's best that you activate the Steam guard, as it will ask you to enter a code that you've received on your email. In this case, you can safely enter the site with your Steam profile.
After you've entered all the information you're asked from the site, you can wait and check the available results in a short period of time, usually a few minutes. Make sure to select the CSGO items only for the specific inventory value calculations.
There is something else you need to be aware of so that you aren't surprised once you finally check your total Steam inventory value. Some items from your CSGO inventory won't be tradable or available to be sold on the Steam market. Because of this, they won't be calculated into the total price at the end, even though they are inside your CSGO inventory. This is not a problem at all, it's just nice to keep in mind to avoid any surprises regarding the price your skins and other items on your inventory list.
