By using or its related sites and pages (hereafter referred to as TCGplayer), you are agreeing to abide by the following terms. Even though they may change from time to time, your continued use of the website implies that you accept the responsibility of knowing and following the terms contained herein.


We do collect some information about you so that we may tailor this website to best match your usage patterns and interests. Full details of our Privacy Policy are available here.

Copyright, Trademarks, Patents and Licenses

All of the content found on TCGplayer, including graphics, text, buttons, logos, video, audio, downloadable files, pricing information and card databases, is the property of TCGplayer, Inc. and is protected by United States and international copyright laws.

Additionally, graphics, logos, page headers and button icons are trademarks or trade dress of TCGplayer in the United States and other countries. This material may not be used in connection with any service or product outside of TCGplayer without express written permission, especially in a situation likely to cause confusion among customers.

Other trademarks may appear on TCGplayer but not be owned by TCGplayer, including but not limited to logos for Magic: The Gathering, Pokemon, and Yu-Gi-Oh! These materials are the property of their respective owners who may or not be connected to or affiliated directly with TCGplayer.

Access and Your Account

If you create an account to be used in conjunction with TCGplayer services, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your account. You also agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account or password, including being held liable for any payments due on purchases made under your account.

TCGplayer does sell products that are for ages 13 and up, but it sells them to adults who can purchase with a credit card or other permitted payment method. If you are under 18, you may only use TCGplayer with the monitoring of a parent or guardian. TCGplayer reserves the right to refuse service, terminate accounts, remove or edit content or cancel orders in its sole discretion.

Community Guidelines

We expect all visitors to TCGplayer to abide by the same Community Guidelines, whether they are a Buyer, a Seller or just passing through to read content, watch videos or comment on articles. Our full Community Guidelines can be found here.

Risks and Liability

Items purchased from individual Sellers on TCGplayer will be shipped by those Sellers and will be the Seller’s responsibility until delivery is confirmed.

Items purchased within TCGplayer Direct may be shipped by TCGplayer and will be the responsibility of TCGplayer until delivery is confirmed.

In the event of a dispute regarding the delivery of your products, you must contact either the individual Seller or TCGplayer customer service. Details resolving disputes can be found here.

TCGplayer is not liable for any loss or damages due to late or non-delivery of your purchased items. Individual Sellers are likewise not liable for any loss or damages.

Products and Pricing

TCGplayer tries to be as accurate as possible in all aspects of card pricing and product availability. However, TCGplayer does not guarantee that product listings, prices, descriptions, available quantities, shipping times or release dates are accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. If a product you purchase from TCGplayer is not as described, your only recourse is to return it or request a partial refund by working with our customer service team. The details of how to resolve such a dispute can be found here.

Unless otherwise noted, the price displayed for products from any individual seller on TCGplayer represents the current price for that product, not including any shipping charges, taxes or processing fees that may be required.

In regard to items sold through TCGplayer Direct, we cannot confirm the available quantity of items in our inventory until you proceed to Checkout. At that point, the shopping cart will alert you if we are unable to ship a card and will explain which cards will be shipped from individual sellers instead of TCGplayer. You will have the opportunity to select different cards, quantities or conditions to remedy this before Checkout is completed.

Your credit card or PayPal account will be charged as soon as you submit your order. Certain factors may trigger an authorization challenge, in which you may be asked to confirm a small refund amount on your account or supply a phone number that we may use to contact you to confirm your identity. In these cases, you will still be charged for your order. If you fail the authorization challenge, your payment will be returned to you within 10 business days. If you pass the authorization challenge, your order will be processed as normal.

Web Services, Applications and APIs

TCGplayer can supply you with pre-built APIs for use in your website or application upon request. You can use our pricing data in a variety of ways, as explained here.

Limitations of Liability

TCGplayer and all information, content, materials, products and services (including TCGplayer Direct) are provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis unless otherwise specified in writing. TCGplayer makes no representations or warranties of any kind, expressed or implied, as to the performance or operation of TCGplayer services or the information, content, materials or products made available to you by using the site. You expressly agree that your use of TCGplayer is at your sole risk.

To the maximum extent allowed by relevant and applicable law, TCGplayer disclaims all warranties. Specifically, TCGplayer does not warrant that the TCGplayer services, servers or electronic communications are free of viruses or other harmful components. Furthermore, TCGplayer will not be liable for any damages or loss caused by the use of TCGplayer or from its information, content, materials or products.

Some state laws do not allow limitations on implied warranties or the exclusion of certain damages. If these laws apply to you, some or all of the above disclaimers, exclusions and limitations may not apply to you, and you may have additional rights provided by the laws of your state.

Applicable Law and Governing Jurisdiction

By using TCGplayer, you agree that applicable federal law and the laws of the State of New York, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Terms of Service and any dispute of any sort that may arise between yourself and TCGplayer.

Anyone using TCGplayer outside of the United States must agree to our international policies as outlined here.
