At Trade Cards Online we take trading very seriously and are committed to ensure the safest trading environment for everyone.
Therefore, in our fight against cheaters and scammers, we are now making public all the information we have about old bad traders, including their full names and addresses.
This has two main purposes:
- as a deterrent for future bad traders, to make them think twice before they try to rip anyone in this site, and
- as a preventive tool, so that you can check any addresses for a history of bad trading before sending your cards there.
So, from now on, anyone who cheats in a trade on our site will face, not only expulsion and permanent ban from our community, but also having their private information posted for public shame so that everyone knows that they are dishonest.
We are confident that this measure will greatly increase the safety in all your transactions through our site.
Please let us know if you find this helpful.
During this month of April we are holding a contest sponsored by ISA (International Sports Authentication), who provided the prizes in the form of graded Magic cards encased in their sonically welded plastic holders.
To participate you only need to bring new users to our site. The winners will be those who get more affiliates during this month of April. Please check our Affiliates Program for hints on how to do this and for the extra benefits you will also get (commissions and Friendship Points). This is the moment to bring all your friends and colleagues and let them enjoy our site!
The prizes will be:
- Three Magic graded cards: 1 Mythic Rare, 1 Rare Foil, and 1 normal Rare. Plus one year of Premium membership.
- Three Rare Magic graded cards. Plus one year of Premium membership.
- One year of Premium membership.
Only new affiliates obtained during the month and who remain active at the end, will be counted, so that everybody has the same chances. So, start promoting our site now, and help our community grow!
As soon as a trade gets accepted the cards you are expected to send should not be available for any other trades as they are already committed, and the cards you are going to receive should not be in your wants any more either. This prevents other people from getting matches for cards that are already committed to a trade and sending trade offers that are not really viable.
We are now managing your card lists in this way. Your lists get updated as soon as a Tracked Trade gets accepted, to prevent any confusions or double trades for the same card. And the lists get restored if the Trade expires before you send or receive.
We hope this will further improve the usefulness of our Tracked Trades system. Please let us know if you notice any issues.
You can now store all the cards you offer for trade in a single binder, without having to split them by sets. This way people can browse all your cards in one place the same way they would do if you would hand them your binder when meeting in person. Though, of course, your binder at Trade Cards Online is visible to everyone around the world so that you can get more and better offers!
If you have more than 540 cards in your list they will be split into several binders, 30 pages each, so that they are not too bulky!…

When you need to add a lot of cards to your haves and wants, the option to upload a text file is very convenient, because it lets you upload as many cards as you want in one single go. But generating the file with the data in the correct format can be a lot of work.
This is why we are offering now a utility that lets you download a template file correctly formatted that you can simply then update with the correct amounts and use to upload to the site. You just save the template in your computer, edit it with a text editor, and update the amounts for those cards that you want to add to your lists. The file is now ready for you to upload to the site so that the cards get added to your haves and/or wants.
Check it out and let us know if you like it.
We want to thank user emoss for suggesting this feature.
