How Do I Set Up My Pro Website?

Note: These instructions are for the new Beta version of Pro Websites. If your Pro Website was created before September 7, 2021, please refer to our original Pro Website Set Up Instructions.

Once you sign up for Pro Seller by TCGplayer, you can request a Pro website (formatted as: STORENAME.tcgplayerpro.com) by reaching out to our Customer Service team at sales@tcgplayer.com. You will receive your website by agreeing to the following terms:

  • Brick and Mortar stores: you agree to utilize the Pro site or Kiosk to facilitate sales.

  • Non-Brick and Mortar Retailers: you agree to process at least $1,100 in shippable sales per month through your Pro website.

We do monthly checks on website usage, and our Customer Success Team will reach out to work with you if your sales are not at the agreed-upon levels.

To make customizing your website as simple as possible, TCGplayer has added additional options under the Pro Settings tab in your Seller Portal so that you can easily modify the content and design of your website. Personalizing your site is key to establishing your brand and should be one of the first things you do after you sign up for Pro Seller by TCGplayer.

Once your website is created, we’ll send you your new URL (STORENAME.tcgplayerpro.com) and you can start customizing your website!

Once you log into the Seller Portal with your TCGplayer email and password, click on the TCGplayer Pro Settings tab. On the left, you will see the Pro Seller options. To set up your website you will need to go through the options in the Pro Website, Customization, and Content sections. The rest of this document will go over these sections.
