TCGplayer Affiliate Program

This page displays the details of our affiliate program and the steps necessary to get involved. It also covers linking to receive referral credit.

What is an Affiliate Program?

A partnership in which TCGplayer pays affiliate web sites a commission to send them traffic. These affiliate web sites post links to TCGplayer and are paid accordingly.

How does TCGplayer's Affiliate Program operate?

As an affiliate partner, we’ll provide you with a unique affiliate code that we’ll use to track your referrals and their actions once they land on TCGplayer.com. Once your referred sales on TCGplayer surpass our payment threshold for the first time in a single month ($290 in sales/$10 payment) you can request access (Discord/Email) to a Google Data Studio dashboard for tracking that includes data and metrics including: referred users, conversion rate, transactions, referred revenue, and more.

The commission rate is 3.5% of any purchase directly referred to TCGplayer. This is through last-click attribution, meaning credit will be given to you for any purchase made when you’re the last referrer associated to that user. If you refer someone to a card and then they browse around and add 10 more cards to their cart, you’ll receive credit for the whole cart.

Payments are made 45 Days after the end of each month, and are for an entire month of earnings. So all earnings made during January would be paid in the third week of March. We pay via ACH direct deposit in the USA and IAT (where available) or PayPal internationally. You can also have payments made directly to your TCGplayer account as store credit by request. We do not issue payments less than $10 and there is no "roll-over" from month to month.
