Instant Sell

The Instant Sell price (market sell price) is calculated using the average price of the highest 300 Shares available through Bids. This allows Traders to instantly match with the highest priced Shares available through Bids.

Rarely, you’ll see there isn’t a price in the Sell button for certain players. This happens when footballers don’t have any Bids placed on them, so no Instant Sell price is generated. You can still place Sell Orders on these players.

Instant Sell is powered by Bids

The first type of Sell Order is known as Instant Sell. This is when Traders place a Sell Order at the market sell price in order to match and sell instantly. 

To Instant Sell, first tap on the Sell button and then on the Instant Sell button. Here you can choose the number of Shares you want to sell. You can place a Sell Order of up to 300 Shares per Instant Sell order. 

Once you have confirmed the number of Shares you want to sell, there are two possible outcomes of your Instant Sell order: 

Instant Match - All the Shares you requested to sell in your Instant Sell order are instantly matched at your requested price. Funds from your Sell Order will be added to your account immediately. 2% commission is charged on all sold Shares. 

Partial Instant Match -  As other Traders are placing Sell Orders or cancelling Bids at the same time as you, the full number of Shares you requested to Instant Sell are no longer available at your set price. We always work to honour your set Instant Sell price. A portion of the Shares you requested to sell in your Instant Sell order are matched. You’ll receive the funds for your matched Shares immediately. Shares that don’t match will remain in your Portfolio and you won’t receive funds for them or be charged commission.

You'll be charged a 2% commission on each Share matched via Sell Orders (both Offers and Instant Sell).

Placing an Offer

The second type of Sell Order is an Offer. Rather than accepting the Instant Sell price (market sell price), you can set your own price instead. This is known as an Offer.

To do this, first tap the Sell button, then the Place an Offer button. Now choose the number of Shares you want to sell and set the price. The maximum quantity of Shares for each Offer is 300. You can place up to three Offers per footballer at any one time.

There are three possible outcomes when your Offer has been placed.

Offer
Matched

All the Shares in your Offer are matched with Buy Orders.

Offer Partially Matched

Some of the Shares in your Offer have matched with Buy Orders, but some remain unmatched. The unmatched Shares will remain active until they’re matched or cancelled.

Offer
Cancelled

Shares in your Offer have not matched. You decide to cancel your Offer, and your Shares are returned to your Portfolio. You are not charged commission for unmatched Shares. 
Please note Offers do not expire.

The Offer Zone

The Offer Zone is the price range you can place an Offer within. The Offer Zone Ceiling (the upper limit) is 50p above the Buy Now price. The Offer Zone Floor (the lower limit) is 1p below the Buy Now price. You won’t be able to place Offers outside of the Offer Zone.

Note: You’ll be able to place a maximum of 3 Offers of up to 300 Shares per Offer per footballer at any one time.

You'll be charged a 2% commission on each Share matched via Sell Orders (both Offers and Instant Sell).
