Some sellers have commented recently that it seems like TCGplayer is talking a lot about Store Your Products (SYP), for the last several months. It’s true. We love SYP, because we see the acceleration in the rate at which SYP sellers are making sales. SYP sellers are growing their revenues quickly, and having repeated successes, leading to further growth of their businesses.

Because we know that it can be intimidating to start something new, we wanted to create a few recipes that show different pathways to creating your own success with Store Your Products. Please read on, and learn how you too can be successful with SYP!
