BitSkins Removed & Gift Cards Added

BitSkins Has Been Removed & Gift Cards Have Been Added

BitSkins has been removed as a withdrawal method and we are therefore introducing Gift Cards as a new withdrawal method.

Why has BitSkins been removed?

BitSkins has been removed because they decided to permanently disable their coupon feature on their website. We have asked them about the reasons and here is their answer:

Removal of Coupons is permanent since the system was being abused on an increasing scale.
Coupons were intended for peer-to-peer use, but they become a withdrawal mechanism for sites that Steam dislikes. Those are the sites that we cannot support with direct methods like coupons.
We can’t police the use of coupons, unfortunately. It’s possible that we could whitelist sites that share their accounts with other third-party sites, and thus cause issues.
After Steam decided to ban OPSkins bots, BitSkins became more cautious. Gambling sites started to use BitSkins coupons, so they decided to stop offering that feature to protect themselves. We think that this is the right move for them, even if it doesn’t suit us very much.

Gift cards have been added

We decided to add Gift Cards to our withdrawal options. For now, we only offer a Steam Wallet Code but more gift cards will be added soon. Steam Wallet Codes are an easy way to put money into your own Steam Wallet. They can be redeemed on Steam for the purchase of games, software, and any other item you can purchase on Steam. So you can still buy skins for your favorite games, or you can now buy the games itself if you like. You can take a look at it on our withdrawal page.

More withdrawal methods will be added

Some users were concerned about the future of Idle-Empire after we lost both OPSkins and BitSkins in a short timeframe. We can assure you, we won’t be going anywhere. We have chosen to support external withdrawal providers for a reason. It gives us flexibility and offers our users diversity. We are constantly looking for other useful withdrawal methods so that you have more choices, and we will add more withdrawal methods over time.
Stay tuned!
