Here is an overview of how to sell cards to Cape Fear Games:

Searching and Submitting Your Items:

You can use the following avenues to find and submit your items for sale:

·  The “Search” box on the top-left

·  Browse by set through either the “Magic Singles” tab, the “Magic Products” tab, or the “Pokemon Singles” tab to the left

·  The advanced search link to the right of the search box

·  The Buylist Multi-Search.

Once you find the item that you would like to sell, add it to your cart. Make sure you are in buylist mode noted by the "You are currently browsing our buylist" banner at the top left of the page. If there are cards you can't find on our buylist, and you don't feel that they are bulk, email us at We will get back to you as soon as possible.

IMPORTANT: If you are submitting a large quantity buylist of more than 100 items, we suggest that you stop submitting items once you have reached a quantity of 100 in the “Shopping Cart”. Complete that current buylist. Then submit the rest of your items in another buylist. This keeps the website client from being overwhelmed by the size of the buylist for when you are trying to submit and also when we have to process it. Doing the process this way makes it so we can grade and complete it faster and have you paid sooner.

Login to Your CFG Account:

Once you have submitted all of the items you would like to sell, click the cart icon and then click checkout. You will be asked to login to your Cape Fear Games account if you haven’t already. If you do not have a Cape Fear Games account, you will be required to create one before proceeding. Creating an account is free.

Sort Your Collection:

Once you have arrived at the “Checkout” page, place your buylist in the order that it appears on this page. The first card being at the top of the page and the last being at the bottom of the page. Be sure, also, that the cards are from the correct set and are of the same edition (1st edition, Foil, Promo, etc.) as portrayed in the buylist.

Payment Options:

Select your payment option. Your choices are:

·  PayPal; PayPal charges a 3-5% fee for using their services.

·  Check; Checks are fee-free, can be mailed within the United States, and have a $10 minimum. Checks are processed through our bank and may take up to 5-7 business days (excluding holidays) to arrive.

·  Store Credit; Choosing the Store Credit option receives a 30% bonus to the cash total for the buylist. You can use this credit to spend on anything on our website or anything in-store.

·; If you are trying to receive credit to, select the payment method “PayPal” or “Check” and leave a message in the “Comments/Instructions” box saying you would like credit. For MTGOTraders Credit, you will receive a 20% bonus.

·  If you are trying to seek an International payment method outside of the above listed, contact us and we will try our best to accommodate you.

Completing Your Buylist Submission:

Fill out the necessary information we need to know for your payment method. Leave any comments or special instructions, such as wanting to be contacted after grading but before payment is completed, in the “Comments/Instructions” box. Click submit buylist. If you are bringing the buylist in-store, you do not need to wait for an approval email or worry about shipping it in. You may just bring it to the front counter after you have submitted the buylist.

Wait For An Approval Email:

Once we have approved your buylist, you will receive an Approval Email. If you do not receive this email after one business day, email us at after checking your Spam folder.  You will need to be sure that the buylist is in the same order as the email. You will need to print out the Approval Email and package it with the buylist. We require you to remove the cards from sleeves prior to shipping. 

Packaging Your Buylist:

When packaging a buylist, you are responsible for how the buylist is packaged and how secure it is within the packaging. We do not recommend letter envelopes or binders. We would suggest putting the buylist in some sort of deckbox and then putting that within another box. Clear, plastic deckboxes have been known to break or shatter in transit, so do make sure to consider this when choosing what to put your buylist in before mailing it out.

Mail The Buylist To Us:



Cape Fear Games
4107 Oleander Dr, Ste D 
Wilmington, NC 28403 

 We allow buylist packages 7-10 days to arrive to our store. If a buylist does not arrive in that period of time, we may refuse the buylist or adjust buyprices to then current prices. If this were to happen, we will contact you with the new pre-grading total and then proceed once we have your confirmation.


Buylist Arrival, Grading, and Payment:

Once the buylist has arrived, we will mark it as “Received” and grade it. After grading is complete, you will receive an email with how each card was graded and the new total of the buylist. We will then pay you via the chosen payment method. Cape Fear Games will make all efforts to send payment for the buylist the day the buylist is received, Monday through Friday. Situations outside of our control may delay payment. If the buylist arrives sorted in any order other than the way it is listed on the confirmation email it will result in a $5.00 plus $15.00/hour fee to sort the buylist. If a counterfeit card is received with a submitted buylist, the item will be destroyed and the seller notified. Counterfeit cards cannot be returned by mail but can be picked up in-store.

If you have any questions, email us at
