    Trade channels are a joke, sometimes I join them and spam stuff like: FREE ITEMS to anyone that actually reads this!, and no one ever replys....
    tf2outpost is ok.... but it has very little support for dota.

    Needs an auction house.

    You can never find anything good in the trading channel. So far I want something like tf2outpost in the dota2 client.

    This is a brilliant idea. But instead of "bidding" or competing for the highest bid, you should have an option like "place offer".
    Then the system would display "15 offers" (as an example). The owner would then decide which offer is the best to make an exchange.

    Furthermore, to place an item in the auction shop, we could consider selling an "auction ticket" - which would be very accessible. I'm thinking £0.60 for 10. Ergo, the game will make a bit of profit for improving the system, while the ticket ensures the AC won't be flooded by all the items, but rather by items worth trading.

    A third option would be implementing a virtual currency, and creating an economy. The currency would be used for bids, exchanges, or even buying other perks such as Tournament Tickets, or things from the valve shop. Also crediting this currency from micro-transactions like mobile payment would prove beneficial in the long run, as most of the items in the game are currently under 1 pound.

    No need. Just go to other sites that link to steam, my favourite is tf2outpost.com. Enjoy trading there.

    I support this. Valve can make money off of this too by charging a % of the auction (for real $ auctions).

    Luckly, it's not needed to wait for Valve to work on that. There are already fan-made sites that can provide such trading information.
    In TF2 Valve never developed trading much, they left it for users.

    Here. Pick Dota2 as inventory and you can trade there right now (mostly there are only rip-off offers there thought, but people will get used to fair prices in time)

    Any kind of proper trade function is mandatory now, people are getting scammed quite easily, the chat is filled with spam. What little chance there ever was that people actually wanted to talk properly about DOTA like normal humans (yeah, I know) is pretty much gone. Come on Valve, you're supposedly big on 'cleaning up' the DOTA community, but the addition of the tradeable items has pretty much dumped all over that idea.

    Whatever you do, don't call it auction house. This is now reserved for moneygrabbing fail strategies connected to a bad game.

    I rather have some sort of trading tool, you put an item, you choose something you want, and wait for people to trade.
    Aside from the fact this made me kind of sad inside, you should take this guys answer as support.

    I'll also support this, even though I just delete all my items.
