How to sell cards to Cape Fear Games
1. Searching and Submitting Your Cards:

You can use the following methods to find and submit your cards for sale:

  • The “Search” box in the top-left
  • Browse by set through either the “Magic Singles” tab, the “Magic Products” tab, or the “Pokémon 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 and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

IMPORTANT: If you are submitting a large quantity of more than 100 items, we suggest that you stop submitting items once you have reached a quantity of about 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 allows for faster processing. Doing the process this way makes it so we can grade and complete it faster and get you paid sooner.

2. 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 fast, free, and easy.

3. Sort Your Buylist by Set then Name:
Once you have arrived at the “Checkout” page, place your buylist in the order that it appears on this page. Please double check to make sure that the cards are from the correct set and edition (1st edition, Foil, Promo, etc.) as shown on your buylist.

4. Select Your Payment Options:
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.
  • MTGOTraders Credit: 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.

5. 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.

6. 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, be sure to check your spam folder, otherwise, email us at You will need to be sure that the buylist is in the same order as the email. Please be sure to include your order number with your buylist.

7. Packaging Your Buylist:
When packaging a buylist, you are responsible for shipping and packaging. We do not recommend sending buylists in letter envelopes or binders. We suggest putting the buylist in a deckbox and then putting that within another box. Package all items tightly and securely. Clear, plastic deckboxes have been known to break or shatter in transit, so do make sure to use some sort of filler within the box. Do not use rubberbands. Please remove sleeves from any card worth less than $10 as desleeving entire buylists takes large amounts of time and may result in a processing fee.

8. Mail the Buylist to us at:
Cape Fear Games
4107 Oleander Dr, Ste D
Wilmington, NC 28403 USA

We allow buylist packages one week 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.

9. 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 $15.00/hour processing fee. 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, please email us at
