How to find a moment on NBA Top Shot marketplace

Now you may have a specific player that you want to acquire as a moment in NBA Top Shot marketplace and if money isn’t an issue then you will be able to search and find the appropriate player and buy them. However, if you like me and you have a limited budget you want to try and get the best deal possible out of NBA Top Shot marketplace, one of the ways of doing this is by using the filter section on the left-hand side of the page. You can search for a particular team or a player which you may wish to purchase. Once you have found a player to purchase, you can click on them and there will be a drop-down box that shows all serial numbers and what the asking price is for said serial numbers. The lowest asking price will be listed and that will be the first option you will see on the page. However, it may be worthwhile scrolling up to a lower serial number to see if there is much disparity between a high serial number price and a lower serial number price. From my own experience, I’ve purchased a low serial number for $10 more then a reasonably high serial price.

It’s important that you have a budget in mind because it is very easy to get carried away with purchasing moments. And just because you purchase a moment doesn’t mean that you are going to have success as the marketplace can go up and down.

Once you have found a moment which you like you then just click by the moment you will then be taken through to dapper where you confirm your bank details and you will purchase the moment. He will leave the data page and be sent to NBA Top Shot page which will confirm whether your purchase has been a success. Sometimes it will fail and this will be due to a person buying the moment just before you and if that is the case it’s just a matter of going and finding a new moment. It’s important to note that dapper will put a hold on the money of a failed purchase for 48 hours.
