How to Import Lists of Cards from the TCGplayer Mobile App to Inventory

 

If you are a Level 4 seller, you can use the TCGplayer mobile app to import lists of cards into the Seller Portal to add to your inventory. You can also use this process to generate a CSV of the uploaded products for auditing or pricing purposes from the Seller Portal.

 

Importing Inventory from the TCGplayer App

Lists can be imported directly to the Seller Portal in two ways: Through the “Scan” tab or through the “Collections” tab of the app.

If you would like to make changes to your scanned or collection lists in a CSV format before moving the products to your live inventory, it is recommended that you import them to Staged Inventory (i.e. don’t add store pricing for the products on the app before importing).

Importing Inventory Through the “Scan” Tab

  1. To import from the “Scan” tab, select the ellipses menu button above any list of scans in the “Scan” tab.
  2. Select “Import to Seller Portal” from the menu.
  3. When the list of scanned cards is uploaded to the seller portal, you will receive a confirmation message that “The current list has been imported to your TCGplayer Seller Portal Managed Lists.”

Importing Inventory Through the “Collections” Tab

  1. To import a list from the “Collections” tab, select the list you want to send to the Seller Portal.
  2. At the top of the list, select the ellipses menu to view options for the list.
  3. Select “Import to Seller Portal” from the menu.
  4. When the list from your collection is uploaded to the Seller Portal, you will receive a confirmation message that “The current list has been imported to your TCGplayer Seller Portal Managed Lists.”

 

Add Your Imported List to Inventory

  1. After your scanned or Collection list is uploaded to the Seller Portal, you will go to the “Manage Lists” tab to find your list and add it to your inventory.
  2. Imported lists from the app are listed with the Source as “Mobile App Scans.” Find the list you want to add to your inventory and select the “View List” button.
  3. Review your list and select “Add To Inventory” to sell the cards on the TCGplayer Marketplace or your Pro Website. Any products that already have a price set in your inventory will go straight to live inventory with an updated quantity. The same is true for products in the app-imported list that have a My Store price set. If a product doesn't have a price, it will go to Staged Inventory, where you can price the product before moving it to your Live Inventory.


  4. Once your list is added to your inventory, you will receive a confirmation message near the top of the screen.
  5. To update pricing for products added to Staged Inventory, go to the “Pricing” tab and select “Staged” to view only Staged Inventory. When your pricing is set in the “My Store Price” column, select the “Move to Live” button to move the list of products to your live inventory.

Updating Scanned or Collection Lists in a CSV Format

If you would prefer to update pricing or quantities for your imported lists manually in CSV, you can do so by downloading the list from the Pricing tab. To do this, you must add your imported list to either your Staged Inventory or Live Inventory first from the Managed Lists page (as described above).

The CSV export option you select on the Pricing tab will depend on if your list was uploaded to Staged Inventory or Live Inventory.

Staged Inventory CSV Export

If you want to export all of your Staged Inventory to a CSV, select the “Export from Staged” button under the filters on the Pricing page.

 

If you want to export only a portion of your Staged Inventory, like cards belonging to a specific product line and set uploaded using the TCGplayer App, use the filters on the Pricing page to filter your Staged Inventory before exporting.

  1. To start the filtering process for the export, select the “Staged” button on the right side of the Pricing page to view only your Staged Inventory.
  2. Next use the filters at the top of the screen to limit to only the list of cards you want to export. For example, you might select “Pokemon” as the Product Line and “Trick or Trade BOOster Bundle” as the Set and click the “Search” button to limit the displayed Staged Inventory to our example uploaded list.
  3. Once you confirm that the list of cards you want to export as a CSV is displayed, select the “Export Filtered CSV” button to export only the displayed products.
  4. The CSV file for the listed cards will be downloaded, and you can edit this directly in Excel, Numbers, Google Sheets or a similar tool before importing the list to the Seller Portal and moving it to Live Inventory.

Live Inventory CSV Export

If you want to export all of your Live Inventory to a CSV, select the “Export from Live” button under the filters on the Pricing page.

 

If you want to export only a portion of your Live Inventory, like cards belonging to a specific product line and set uploaded using the TCGplayer App, use the filters on the Pricing page to filter your Live Inventory before exporting.

  1. To start the filtering process for the export, select the “Live” button on the right side of the Pricing page to view only your Live Inventory.
  2. Next, use the filters at the top of the screen to limit to only the list of cards you want to export.
    When filtering your Live Inventory, it’s a good idea to select the “Advanced Filters” button and ensure that “My Catalog Only” is selected before choosing a Product Line, Set, or other characteristics to filter by.
  3. In this example if you wanted to export a CSV of all YuGiOh products that are part of your Live Inventory, you might select “YuGiOh” as the Product Line and click the “Apply Filters” button to limit the displayed Live Inventory.
  4. Once you confirm that the list of cards you want to export as a CSV is displayed, select the “Export Filtered CSV” button to export only the displayed products.
  5. The CSV file for the listed cards will be downloaded, and you can edit this directly in Excel, Numbers, Google Sheets or a similar tool before importing the list to the Seller Portal and moving it to Live Inventory.
