When new sets launch, especially for popular trading card games like Magic: The Gathering, Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh!, it can be a stressful time for your store. You need to acquire, price and sell cards from the latest set. Plus, if you’re listing on the TCGplayer Marketplace, you also need to ship cards to your customers. To help you throughout the process, we provide tools that make new set launches simple for your store.
Quickly Add New TCG Sets to Your Inventory
To help speed up set entry, we provide multiple tools that allow you to mass update your inventory.
- Quicklist: All TCGplayer Pro members have access to this card scanning software, which lets you scan trading cards to add them to your inventory.
- Pricing Tab: Level 4 sellers can use this tab in the Seller Portal to mass update inventory.
Mass Update Your Prices Whenever the Market Changes
Updating your prices regularly during release weekends will ensure you’re always offering the best deal while maximizing revenue for your store.
- MassPrice: If you’re a Pro seller, you can use MassPrice to define your own rules that will update multiple prices at once with the push of a button.
- Channel Management: By using in-store and online channels with MassPrice, you can define even more powerful rules like setting your My Store prices to 5% higher than your current Marketplace prices.
Get Ahead with Presales
All Pro sellers and most hobby shops qualify to list products for preorder before they release. To enable presales, simply opt in within the My Details tab in your Seller Portal. Before you list new cards through presales, just make sure you’ll be able to ship them quickly once the new set is released. Take extra care with rare and foil cards that could be hard to find. Filling presales quickly will help you maintain a high feedback rating and get more repeat business.
Stock Popular Trading Cards Affordably
Replenishing your inventory during a big set launch will ensure you always have the cards your customers need. The TCGplayer Buylist helps you find the cards your store needs from players all over the country. You set exactly the prices you’re willing to pay for each card at each condition. We’ll handle everything on your behalf so you can focus on your in-store customers.
Let TCGplayer Handle Order Fulfillment for You
When you’re running events and selling to your in-store customers, it can be hard to find the time to fulfill online orders in the middle of a release weekend. If you want to sell online, but you don’t have the time to ship cards to every individual customer, TCGplayer Direct is the program for you. We’ll ship Magic: The Gathering cards on your behalf using our inventory. Then you simply send all the cards we fulfilled on your behalf back to us in a single package.
Set releases are an exciting time and we want to help you make the most of them. If you need help using any of the tools mentioned in this post, contact your Customer Success Manager or email email@example.com to receive guidance and provide feedback.
