League of Legends is a very addictive game that people spend a lot of time playing, but sometimes people have had enough of video games and want to focus on something else in their life. For reasons like these, people quit League of Legends and their account collects dirt sitting on Riot’s servers.
However, what if we told you that there was a way to make money off of your League accounts? After all, there is a market for everything if you’re looking hard enough. League accounts, like any other commodity, can be sold to make a profit.
Whether you want to sell your account that you don’t play on anymore or you want to turn this into a profitable business is up to you.
Before we explain how to sell your League of Legends account, let’s discuss a few things first.
- Who sells these accounts?
- Who buys these accounts?
- How much are League Accounts worth?
Disclaimer: We do not condone people selling their League of Legends accounts. This article is written for informational purposes only. Riot’s policies regarding the trading of LoL accounts are stringent and you might end up getting banned.
Who Sells These Accounts?
As previously explained, some people have played League of Legends for a while, and spent a bunch of money purchasing and collecting skins but now they have to quit for reasons unknown. They often sell their account to make a quick buck rather than all of it going to waste.
That being said, some people run businesses playing, levelling up, ranking, and selling League of Legends accounts. These people make up the majority of the accounts that are currently on sale.
Who Buys These Accounts?
Players who don’t have enough time to play and collect all the skins in the game are one of the types of people that buy these accounts.
However, the most common group of people are the ones that are not very skilful at the game. These people might be hard-stuck gold or silver, so they buy high-ranking accounts to experience high MMR or to brag about their rank.
How Much Are League Accounts Worth?
- Iron – about $400 to $500
- Bronze – $1 – $5
- Silver – $2 – $8
- Gold – $10 – $20
- Platinum – $25 – $35
- Diamond – $60 – $100
- Masters – minimum $200
- Challenger – $1000+ depending on server
Note: The prices shown above are solely based on the rank of an account. Skins and levels also add to the value of an account along with several other things. To get a more accurate estimate of your account’s value, check out the PlayerAuctions website.
Now I know what you might be wondering, why are Iron accounts so expensive? Let me explain;
Statistics show that Iron IV has the same number of players in them as Grandmasters and Challenger.
During your placement series, your MMR is determined by how well you performed in the games leading up to these placements. For example, the games you played when you were Level 1-30 would also be taken into account to determine what rank of players you should play with, during your placement series.
This means that it’s almost impossible to reach Iron IV 0 LP no matter how unskilled as a player you are. You could be the worse player on the face of the earth and still be placed in Bronze IV or Iron I. It’s extremely difficult to reach Iron IV by playing casually.
One thing to keep in mind is that these accounts are only worth so much because of their rarity, whether or not someone pays for them is an entirely different story.

With all that explaining out of the way, let’s talk about how to sell a League account.
How To Sell Your League Of Legends Account?
This is a how-to-guide on how to sell your account so follow every step carefully.
1. Get an accurate estimate of your account’s worth

Although there are a lot of websites that you can use to sell your account, we prefer eBay because it is a very reliable website and the chances of getting scammed are pretty low. eBay is also one of the most popular websites, making it much faster and easier to sell your account.

- In our case, write “League of Legends account”
At this point, they will show you a list of similar products in their catalogue. Simply scroll down and click on “Continue without selecting a product”
- After that, you would be taken to a listing page
- Fill out all the details regarding your account
- Create a listing
You might be overwhelmed by the number of details you have to fill in. Simply take your time and fill out everything necessary and skip the unnecessary stuff.
Now that the listing has been created, wait some time until you get an offer for your account, and if the offer seems adequate to your liking, sell your account.
Selling a League account is not a new phenomenon, it’s been happening since the early days of League. There are a lot of people that make a living off of selling League of Legends accounts. So there is no need to worry about whether your account would sell or not since it’s still quite an unsaturated market.
