EA FC 24 has a large Ultimate Team player base that strives to get as many coins as possible to unlock the most skilled players and build a strong team. Trading is a great way to make coins fast in Ultimate Team, so here are some tips to help you become an effective trader in EA FC 24.

EA FC 24 is the rebranding of FIFA, introducing tons of new features while also adding some noteworthy improvements to hit modes like Ultimate Team and Career . These include the arrival of women’s players, Evolutions, PlayStyles, and more.

One thing that still remains important in your Ultimate Team journey, however, is the use of coins. This currency is used to buy packs that contain the best players in the game, so you’ll require a bunch of coins. Trading is among the best ways to get coins outside of outright purchasing them with real money.

On that note, here are some EA FC 24 trading tips to make coins fast in Ultimate Team.

The market can be a little messy early on in an Ultimate Team campaign and EA FC 24 is no exception. Luckily, this opens the door for players to make a quick buck by buying and selling cards, helping them build out their dream squads.

It’s tricky to know where to start, so we’ve put together some EA FC 24 trading tips to get you started and maximize your profits.

Don’t forget about tax

FIFA veterans will be well aware, but it’s important to remember that there is a five percent tax on every sale in EA FC 24. This means that for every item you list on the Transfer Market, a handful of coins will be taken by the game.

With this in mind, you should take the tax into account whenever you sell a player, club item, or consumable, as the profits are slightly lower than they first appear.

Bid instead of Buy Now

When purchasing players from the EA FC 24 Transfer Market, fans have the choice between bidding or using the Buy Now option. While buying right away saves plenty of time and effort, a well-timed bid is the secret to securing a bargain.

If a valuable player is entering the last minute of their listing and the bidding is still well below their usual value, put in a bid of your own and you could easily find yourself with a high-rated card for a fraction of the price.

You can then sell on the card for their usual cost to earn a quick profit. Of course, there’s always the chance you could be outbid so this method does require a bit of patience, but it’s well worth the grind.

The Bronze pack method

The Bronze pack technique is a FIFA staple and fans will be relieved that it is alive and well in EA FC 24. This trading method is done by buying Premium Bronze Packs from the store for 750 coins each and using the contents to make a small but easy profit.

Most players inside will sell for 200 coins on the market right away, but any that are important to SBCs could go for well over 1,000. There are also plenty of kits and club items that could have a higher market value.

So, there’s a good chance that you’ll at least make most of what you paid back in each pack, but there’s also a lot of potential to make a profit. This makes Bronze packs a low-risk but potentially high-reward trading method.

Keep an eye on SBCs

The EA FC 24 market is always changing and SBCs have a major impact on the price of players. If cards from a certain club or nation are required for a challenge that unlocks a valuable pack, you’ll see the cost of those players skyrocket.

With this in mind, it’s vital to keep on top of the latest SBCs and invest in the types of players that other fans will need. Some of these can even be predicted ahead of time, such as Marquee Matchups, which are based on the biggest fixtures of the upcoming game week.

If you can’t anticipate the next batch of EA FC 24 SBCs, check the in-game page at 6 PM UK time every time and quickly buy up important players before the market reacts. You can then sell these cards once the price inflates.

Check your consumables

Players aren’t the only cards in EA FC 24 that have value. Consumables like Chemistry Styles can also be sold for a quick coin profit, especially those that buff key stats like shooting and pace. If you’re happy with your team and the Chemistry Styles you have equipped, don’t be afraid to list any spares.

Meta Manager League items can also sell for anywhere up to 5,000 coins, so keep an eye out for any Premier League, Ligue 1, Bundesliga, and other consumables hidden in packs.

There you have it! Those were our EA FC 24 trading tips to help you earn coins quickly in Ultimate Team during early access.
