When it comes to making coins in FIFA, a few methods and procedures stand out. So does the Bronze Pack Method or BPM. FIFA Investors prefer this method to the other ways in making FUT Coins.
How does Bronze Pack Method Work in FIFA?
The whole idea of BPM (Bronze Pack Method) is to earn FIFA Coins via buying Bronze FUT Packs, opening the packs on the right time, and selling the players inside them with their BIN price or higher at the right time when the profit you make is likely to be higher. The coins you make this way are not very much. But if you keep doing that over a long course of time, you will make a fortune out of FIFA Ultimate Team.
Best Practices in Bronze Pack Opening Method
While opening FUT packs, there are a couple of options that you may encounter and some of the options will make more coins for you if you pay attention. Below, we will share small details that we have learned through experience so you can make more profit in your investment in FIFA.

Which Type of Bronze Pack to Open?
When you are about to buy a Bronze Pack for BPM and making FIFA 21 Coins, you'll have two options:
- Regular FUT Bronze Pack
- Premium FUT Bronze Pack
The regular bronze pack costs 400 FUT Coins and the premium bronze pack is bought with 750 FIFA coins. Now, the question is, which one is better for FIFA Investment?
Both types of bronze packs have the same number of players in them. The only difference is that the premium pack gives you three rare cards instead of one. Now, if you get lucky and win a few bronze players that sell really good, that would be great, but in practice, the only players that sell really good (up to twice the pack's price) are fitness cards, so in general it's recommended to go with the normal bronze pack which costs 400 FIFA Coins.
Other types of bronze packs include FIFA consumables such as:
- Contract Cards
- Fitness Cards
- Healing Cards
- Training Cards
- Club items such as stadiums, balls and kits (non-consumables)
Each of these types of cards can be expected from those bronze packs (regular / premium) and it's good to know what to do with each one of them to get the most out of BPM.
The contract cards will increase the number of matches a player or a manager can play. You may know that each player or manager has a limited number of plays that you can use to play FIFA with. When this number runs out, you will need contract cards to add the number of matches. The contract cards can be applied at any time and their effect will stay on the player until they play and their contract runs out again.
Just keep in mind that loan items cannot be extended by contract cards, and contract cards usually add 8~28 matches depending on the player's card (bronze / silver / gold / rare / non-rare)
Fitness cards are similarly applied to the players for boosting their skills before a match. They last one match only. So, if a player is down his usual numbers before a match, you can apply a fitness card to him so the rating goes up and he performs well. The fitness card will be useless after applying to a player. There is also another type of fitness card that applies to the whole team (23 players including the reserves).
If a player has an injury, fitness cards will not do any good to him. You will need to apply healing cards. Those healing cards reduce the waiting time by 4-5 matches and are two types: the healing card for specific injuries (like foot, arm, etc.) or an overall healing card that heals the injured player no matter what the type of injury is.
What to do with Cards in FIFA Bronze Pack Method
It's crucial to the FUT Pack investors to know when to open the packs and what to do with the cards after they acquire bronze packs.
Here's the deal:
If you get consumables, you apply them to the players.
If the new cards are from the top 5 leagues (Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A, La Liga, etc.), you should wait until an SBC is active. By waiting till SBC the value of the pack's items will go up and you will make more FIFA Coins. When the SBC is on, sell items or use the players in SBC.
If your cards are from other leagues, if the SBC is on, sell the players on Transfer Market or use them in the Squad Building Challenge. If there is no SBC available, you must check their prices. If it's good, sell them, if not, keep them for now.
What happens if your cards are from top nations?
If the card you opened from the bronze pack is from top nations (Belgium, France, Brazil, England, Uruguay, Croatia, ...), just sell the cards! If it's from Netherlands, you will make a lot of FUT Coins from it!
If the card belongs to other nations, just keep the cards (don't sell them).
How much should I sell the fitness cards?
If the fitness card applies to one player, sell it at 200 FUT Coins. If it's applied to the whole squad, you can sell it 700 to 1200 FIFA Coins (depending on which day of the week it is and if there are active promos on).
How much should I sell bronze pack Training Cards?
The training cards are good for boosting skills of a player. The training card can be applied to only one of the player's attributes or all of them. It doesn't work selectively. And the effect will last one match only. You can't apply more than one training card to one player, ie. it doesn't accumulate.
Now if you have a training card that applies to the player's attributes, you can sell it at 200 coins. Or maybe keep it for your matches. Selling all training cards is tricky as they need a few rounds of bidding sometimes. Other training cards can be quick-sold or kept for the squad.
What to do with Duplicates?
There's a dispute about duplicates. Some people believe it's best to use them in Silver upgrade SBC's. There you will have better chance to sell them or use them in your team. It's recommended to send the duplicate card to TL (Transfer List) and use the one you have in the upgrade SBC. When the card is upgraded, send it back to your club. But the problem is that since it requires lots of efforts, most gamers prefer to sell the duplicates.
But if the duplicate card is from top 5 leagues it's really profitable to sell them (if there is an active SBC). If there is no active SBC then you can keep them waiting on the transfer list. If the cards are from other leagues you can sell or keep in TL and for other leagues you can do a quicksell.
Alternative to Making FIFA Coins
One might find it very difficult or time consuming to make FIFA Coins through Bronze FUT Packs. It is even harder if you want to do it through playing SBC's. Fortunately, you can easily buy FIFA Coins without getting banned by EA if you do it wisely and with a well experienced website like WhatsGaming. With WG you are in good hands and your account will be safe all the time you buy FUT 21 Coins.

In this tutorial, we will learn how to invest and make coins in FIFA 21.
First of all, it's really important to know who is sharing the tutorial. This article is based on our own experiences with trading and investment in FIFA 21. Most of the times, when you see people on Social Media telling you to buy this or that player to make coins, you should give it a second thought. Because in that case the guy is probably has invested in that card and is going to sell all of his players for their profit. And they are tweaking the market to persuade you buy those cards and help him make more. That's why we never tell you to buy which card or invest in which player. We will teach you the strategy and rules and heads-outs and you'll have to evaluate the situation each time and buy and sell based on your new conditions.
The Concept of Investing in FIFA 21
Investing in FIFA 21 has more risk and also more profit. You'd be buying cards in large amounts and invest based on variation of their prices in FIFA 21 Coins. For investment in FIFA 21, you'll buy rare Gold cards and high-rated cards that are required in SBCs and objectives. Let's say there is a POTM SBC coming around, cards with rate of 87 will be good for the investment that will generate around 3000 FUT 21 Coins for you per card which will of course be subject to EA's tax per transaction which is five percent and is on the card's seller.
So if we want to formulate the profit, we would have something like this:
Earned FIFA 21 Coins = ( Card's Buying FUT Coins + Profit Coins ) / 0.95*
* 5% is deducted because of EA's Tax
Risks of Investing in FIFA 21
As we mentioned earlier, investment in FIFA 21 comes with some risks. So, the presumption of the above formula is that the invested card's price will go up and you'd expect to make profit, but likewise, it could go down and you'd lose some of your hard-earned FIFA 21 FUT Coins. That's why it's recommended that you watch the market for specific cards going up and down for a while before making such a big decision. Additionally, it's important that you wait enough so the card's price goes up. Acting hastily would not be good for investment.
So, for example, let's say if you want to invest in Thomas Muller from Bayern München with the rating of 86. If you wait too long until the SBC is around with Muller in it, the price of the card will already go up and if you buy, you wouldn't be making any profits. So, it's important to check the prices in FUT-BIN to make sure it hasn't gone up in the past few days to make sure it's still the old price. In that case, it would be reasonable to buy the cards and invest on it.
FIFA 21 Trading
Now, trading is a slightly different concept. It focuses on single trades on cards in FIFA21 and going for smaller profits each time. The risk of FIFA Trading compared to investment is very lower.
There are two different approaches in FIFA 21 Trading: Higher Profit and More Trades. Each approach has its pros and cons when you want to do it.
What are BID and BIN prices in FIFA 21?
Bid price is the average price you will bid on cards in the auction. You will bid on the cards and win if your offer gets accepted. However, BIN price (Buy It Now) is the minimum quick buying price that you can put on a card and buy it right away. Naturally, BIN prices are slightly higher than the average Bidding price of the cards.
Now we can calculate the profit margin of trading in FIFA 21:
PM* = (Sold Price x 0.95) - Bought Price
* Profit Margin
The sold price gets deducted by 5% because of taxation and then deducted by the card's purchase price and the result is your profit margin. Crystal clear!
So, by looking at the formula, it's obvious that the higher the price of the card, the higher the profit margin. And the more you trade, the more will your profit be (the second approach). For example, the silver cards cannot be sold as fast as gold cards as they are used in many places. So, going for gold cards will allow you trade more and thus more profit in FIFA 21.
Let's assume a given card has Bid price of 710 Fut21 Coins and the average BIN of 960 coins. What is expected from you is that you bid on that card several times at the price of 710 coins (the average bid). And when you decide to sell the cards, the sold price will be the card's BIN price that you can find in FUTBIN. So, you'll make around 250 FIFA21 coins from one card. Multiply it by 10, you'll get 2.5K coins. There is no limit in trading cards in FIFA 21, so you can trade as much as you need to make enough coins for buying that icon star for your team, or even selling the coins and making real money from them.
Higher Profit Approach in Trading in FUT 21
As we explained earlier, there are two different approaches in trading in FIFA 21. The first approach is called higher profit and focuses more on making more profit out of each sales instead of going for lower profit margin and higher number of trades. Some cards like Onana you can buy for like 6k coins. And if there's an SBC around, it would gain around 10K. So, PM = 10K - 5% - 6K, and your profit will be 3,500K FUT 21 Coin.
That being said, you will name a higher price on your cards, but how will that work?
As a rule of thumb, you should go for Bronze or Silver cards that will be used in Squad Building Challenges. Buying cards by bidding will have an effect on the market. When those cards become rare, you would be able to sell them at a high prices. Because the gamers wouldn't mind paying more just to get that SBC done. But there's always a risk when you go for higher profit margin. You should make sure the market's price is real and there are true buyers and demand for the card, otherwise you will have to sell cheaper that you bought and thus lose some money in your trading in FIFA 21.
To minimize the risk, you can do this: Buy cards that their Bid price is around their Quicksell price. In that case, the bidding cannot be very low, because the quick sell price is the limit and thus your risk will be minimized.
So, you should plan for your investment and trading, bring a calculator, and a calendar. Make sure you always include the 5% of tax in your calculations. Always keep an eye on the SBCs to see when they're up and when the cards gain value. Always keep an eye on the prices rising on FUTBIN.
