Questions and problems regarding the queue system and trade offers sent by our bots.
Problems after Trading
We have updated Scrap.TF to remove the outdated queue viewer. Ever since we implemented trade offers our bots have processed and sent many trades at once, removing the need for the traditional queue.
The trading process is now simplified and more convenient for everyone.
Receiving your trade offer may take longer when the site is under heavy load or when Steam's servers are being slower than normal. If your trade has been processing for more than 10 minutes this means there may be a problem with that bot, and you can cancel your trade at any time.
Bots restart at the begining and at 30 minutes into every hour (i.e. XX:00 and XX:30), a total of 48 times a day. This assures that they will be able to recover from errors that may have occurred. It is the most fail proof way to guarantee automated crash recovery. They should not be longer than a minute at max, and should resume at where they were working at before.
This means that either the trade offer is in the process of sending, or the bot has suffered a failure. In which case, you need to wait up to a half hour for the bot to restart. If you are stuck in the middle of this, you can either wait or go do something else for the time being. Usually these errors don't surpass a few minutes.
This is a common issue that you might experience a lot due to some Steam issues and other reasons.

If you are experiencing this error while trying to pay with items, it most likely means that we are not accepting said item for whatever reason or that it is overstocked.

As the message says, you might have a trade ban or your inventory might be set to private. Make sure that your inventory settings are set to public and that you haven't done anything which could trigger SteamGuard's protection. Things like changing your email, changing your password, logging in from a new device or browser, logging in from a browser after clearing your cache and cookies and things of the sort trigger such protection.
If it's because SteamGuard, you won't be able to trade for a week.
Make sure that
That's because of an issue on Steam's end (most of the times), making our bots unable to check if the trade will end getting put in hold or something similar.
The only way to fix this issue is to keep trying until the trade goes through or wait some minutes and try again. Sometimes it might take you a lot of tries because of the Steam issues that were stated before.
That's it! You have now set your trade offer URL and the bots will be able to send you a trade offer without adding you.
