When does TCGplayer issue payments?  

Payments are initiated for sales listed as “Completed - Pending Payment” by TCGplayer every Monday and Thursday after TCGplayer Fees have been deducted. Payments made via direct deposit usually appear in accounts after four business days; although, the official timing of payments are dependent upon your banking institution. TCGplayer recommends that you speak with your bank to confirm payment timing. Payments made via store credit are made immediately after being initiated.

Note: If your transfer would occur on a national holiday, your payment will be initiated on the following business day.

A sale is listed as "Completed - Pending Payment" when it meets one of the following criteria:

  • If your tracking number can be “Confirmed as Delivered” then your sale will be listed as "Completed - Pending Payment" 24 hours after delivery.
  • If your tracking number cannot be “Confirmed as Delivered” or if you shipped the order without tracking, then your sale will be listed as "Completed - Pending Payment" 24 hours after the expected delivery date (EDD). For domestic orders, the EDD is typically set to six business days after you confirm shipment on the order. For international orders, the EDD is set to 21 days.
  • However, if an order is under review due to a buyer dispute, the associated funds for a "Completed - Pending Payment" order will be temporarily held until the outcome is decided. You may not receive payment for an order under review. For orders that have already been paid, an equivalent amount of funds will be held back from future deposits until the outcome of the claim is decided.

Presale orders follow the regular payment schedule listed above. However, you will not be eligible for payment until after the release date has passed. For more information, read about our Presale program.

If you ship to international destinations, orders sent to locations outside of the United States are payable 21 days after the order is marked as shipped.
