Terms & Conditions

If you have any queries not addressed here, please contact us! 


What we ship & where.

We ship cards & product to the UK, and cards only to Europe.  Customers from other countries please contact us directly to see if we may arrange something for you.


The Buylist & Selling to us

Our buylist is realtime and should accurately reflect what we need at that moment.  However on occasions errors can occur and so we may have to alter the amount we can accept or the price we are offering. We promise to keep the buylist as accurate as we can.

We accept Mint/Near Mint cards so please take care to be accurate in what you send to us.  There can be exceptions for older cards (eg. Dual lands, Moxes) but contact us first to make sure we agree to the price/condition.

If there are any errors in the items sent (eg. wrong sets, quantities, or condition) which will significantly affect prices we will contact you.  We may make a different offer but if we can't agree on a new price we will return the item to you at our cost.  An exception to this: If what is sent is clearly not what was agreed, we will only return the items at your cost.

Please send the cards in the order they are presented on the buylist.  This will help us to process your order and pay you faster.

We want you to be paid safely and quickly.  As soon as we have received and checked your items we will pay you by:

- Bank transfer
- Paypal

or if you choose credit we will add the credit to your account.  If you want to be paid by bank transfer, please choose 'check' as your payment option. (yeah we know.... it's an American platform...)

See our buylist page for more details.


Accuracy of information

We will use our best efforts to ensure that information on our site is accurate, but mistakes can occur.  We will make all reasonable efforts to correct any errors as soon as we can. Please let us know if you see any errors.


Acceptance of orders

Placing & sending payment for an order is not acceptance by us of the order.  If there are issues we may need to resolve them before dealing with your order.


Use of bots and automated systems on the site

Using software to 'scrape' the website for information (in particular mass trawling for price info) is forbidden.  Any orders believed to be placed using these will be cancelled.  Any account believed to be using such methods will be closed and you will be banned from using the website.


Price Fluctuations

Magic Cards are collectibles and can be subject to large and sudden fluctuations in price due to changes in demand.  We try to keep our prices up to date and to reflect a fair market price.  We may honour orders in the event of a market price rise but we reserve the right to amend or cancel an order if it is not economical to do so.

TO BE CLEAR:  If you are unhappy with the possibility of an order being amended or cancelled, please do not place the order.


Accuracy of Orders

If we are short of any product to a small extent (eg a few cards missing, or a small value) in order to get your order out quickly we will send what we have and refund the difference. If it is to a large extent we will contact you first to ask what you would like to do.  If you want to be contacted in the event of any discrepancy at all, let us know in your order.  Sorry but we do not do back orders!

We check each order before shipping. Please check your order when you receive it. If you believe we have made a mistake let us know straight away.  We'll take it that everything is fine if we don't hear from you within 7 days.

Picking Up Orders

Orders can only be posted, unless we specifically agree to a pick up.

Speculative Buying

We are first and foremost a site for ordinary customers looking to play and enjoy their hobby so we do our best to keep prices low.  If we have orders which we believe are buying primarily to re-sell elsewhere, we may amend or cancel the order.

TO BE CLEAR:  If you are unhappy with the possibility of an order being amended or cancelled, please do not place the order.


Your data

We only use your data for administering your account.  Your personal details are stored securely on Crystal Commerce's servers. We may send you occasional emails in connection with our business only.

Your financial information is processed solely by secure third party processors. We never see your credit/debit card details

Delivery issues

To protect you & us, some deliveries may require a signature. If the chosen shipping method is trackable we will advise you of how you can check it's progress to you.

We aim to have orders sent out on the day they are placed or the next working day but there may be a delays due to the postal service.  If it is a large or heavy order we may need to use a courier which can take a day or two longer.

Please choose a shipping option that matches the size and value of your order.  We may choose a better option for you (at our cost) if we believe it is appropriate to do so.

Distance Selling Regulations

You have certain rights under distance selling regulations.  If you wish to reject an order then you must tell us this by email within 14 days (returns@themagiccardtrader.com).  Items must be returned exactly as they were delivered (unopened, and undamaged) For your own peace of mind we recommend using a recorded method to return the order.  When we receive the returned order & have checked it we will refund your original payment in full.
