Fees

There are no setup or listing fees on TCGplayer.com. TCGplayer only charges a fee if you have a successful sale of your listed items. We later transfer the total amount earned by your sales minus our fees via direct deposit.

All orders processed through our shopping cart system (both PayPal and credit card) also incur a payment processing fee. The payment processing fee for domestic orders is 2.5% + $0.30 while the payment processing fee for international orders is 3.5% + $0.30. If a full refund is initiated by the seller then $0.30 of this fee is non-refundable.

The commission fee for each individual product is capped at $50 regardless of product price. This fee cap is for commission only, and the payment processing fee will still be collected as usual. Example: If you sell two Black Lotus cards, each for $1,000, each would incur a $50 commission fee.

Note: TCGplayer charges fees based on the Order Total (product amount + shipping cost). We do not charge fees on taxes. However, credit card and PayPal do include taxes when determining the fee (product amount + shipping cost + taxes).
