How do I set up my store's TCGplayer Buylist?

If you're a TCGplayer Pro seller, or if you're enrolled in TCGplayer Direct, congratulations! You’re eligible to purchase cards from Players using the TCGplayer Buylist. This will help you get the exact cards you want at the exact price you’re willing to pay. Since we already have your store information on hand, there are just a few quick things you need to do to get started.

1. Navigate to the TCGplayer Buylist tab in your Seller Portal. You'll see a prompt to opt into the Buylist program. If you have not yet accepted the Buylist agreement, you'll have the opportunity to review the Buylist documentation and review the Terms of Service before you continue.


2. Once you've opted in, set up your withholdings (the amount of money from your TCGplayer account that you want to reserve for Buylist purchases).

Note: If you do not want TCGplayer to buy cards on your behalf, you can decline to set up withholdings. In that case your Buylist will not display on the TCGplayer Marketplace. However, you will still be able to display your Buylist on your Pro website and Showcase kiosks to advertise in-store trade-ins.

3. Add cards (name, quantity, condition, etc.) that you want to purchase, as well as the price you’re willing to pay for each.

That’s it. We’ll use the list you create and the funds you set aside to purchase the cards you want from Players all over the country. Those Players will then ship the cards to us, and we’ll check them for accuracy and add them to your Buylist Inventory (in our warehouse). Then, whenever you want, generate a Purchase Order, and we’ll ship your cards directly to you.

Before you begin, review fees and shipping costs and refer to the rest of our Buylist Help Files. If you have any additional questions about this process, contact our Customer Service team.
