I received notification about a wrong Trade URL

In case you received notification about a wrong Steam Trade URL, that means that your Steam account has an active trade blockade.

What may cause trade blockade and how to fix it:

Visibility of your Steam Inventory should be set as “Public”. You can change this at any moment in your Steam profile privacy settings.
You should have “Steam Guard Mobile Token” activated for a minimum of 15 days. If you already activated your “Steam Guard Mobile Token”, you need to wait at least 15 days after you activated it to be able to trade skins on Steam.
If you changed your password at Steam, you need to wait at least 5 days before you will be able to trade skins on Steam.
In case you rejected or declined a large number of exchange offers, you need to wait at least 7 days before you will be able to trade skins on Steam again.
If you have changed your nickname on Steam, then you have to wait 2-4 hours before you can trade again.

We also recommend you check for the error by going to Steam's dedicated support site. Once you are on the site, you will need to log in to your Steam account in order to see the reason why you have been blocked from exchanging on Steam.
