SYRACUSE, N.Y., February 12, 2021 – TCGplayer, the leading online technology platform for the collectibles industry, today announced the beta launch of TCGplayer’s POS Plug-In, an easy-to-use, cloud-based tool that integrates customer Point of Sale (POS) systems and TCGplayer offerings to optimize inventory management and streamline customer operations. TCGplayer has chosen Square Inc. and Shopify Inc. as launch partners for the service offering, which will be available for select local gaming stores starting next month, with a broader launch expected later this year. The tool is designed to work with every POS system available for local gaming stores.

As the year continues, we plan to take the same customer-focused approach that has established TCGplayer as the leading marketplace for collectible card games and expand our offerings into new verticals that support our local gaming store partners.”
