Fees

TCGplayer directly processes all orders placed by Buyers (PayPal & Credit Card) through our shopping cart system. There are no setup fees and no listing fees. TCGplayer only charges a fee if you have a successful sale of your listed item(s). We later transfer the total amount earned by your sales minus our fees via Direct Deposit.

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).

 
1. The Fees if you manually enter your inventory and prices on TCGplayer
 
TCGplayer fee = 10.25% + PayPal/Credit Card processing fee = 2.5% + $0.30 

The TCGplayer fee is for the Order Total (product amount + shipping cost) and does not include tax while the PayPal/Credit Card fee includes taxes. These are applied to single cards as well as sealed merchandise.

EXAMPLE

Product = $65.31

Shipping = $0.99

Order Total = ($65.31 + $0.99) $66.30

NC Sales Tax = $4.48

Total Charged Amount = ($66.30 + $4.48) $70.78

Commission = 10.25%

PayPal/Credit Card Percentage Fee = 2.5%

PayPal/Credit Card Flat Fee = $0.30

 

TCGplayer Fee = (10.25%) * $66.30 = $6.80

Total PayPal/Credit Card Fees = PayPal/Credit Card Flat Fee + PayPal/Credit Card Percentage Fee = $0.30 + (2.5% * $70.78) = $2.07

Total Fees = Product & Shipping Commission + Total PayPal/Credit Card Fees = $6.80 + $2.07 = $8.87

 

Note: The PayPal/Credit Card processing fee of 2.5% + $0.30 is applied once per order and covers the amount TCGplayer pays to these companies to receive funds. If a full refund is initiated by the Seller then $0.30 of this fee is non-refundable.
