This error actually applies in two situations.
If the person you are trading either has a full inventory (which is 1,000 in CS:GO, 2,000 max in TF2, or 1,000 in Dota 2), this error will show up.
When your inventory is full, you will only be able to trade items away, but if you trade for something above the limit, (i.
you have 999 items and you trade for 600 more in a single trade offer) it will still accept it so technically the most amount of items a person can have is unlimited.
The other situation where error 15 applies to is when the person you are trading has a VAC ban or Game Ban in the specific game you are trying to trade with them in.
