Because there are a wide array of features spread across our network of websites, it is difficult for any one user to take full advantage of everything offered. In response to this, I’ve decided to do a highlight feature every week. Hopefully this will help you get more out of our websites.
This week the feature that I wanted to let more of you in on is the ‘Sell’ feature over on our community site. If you aren’t already a member, you’ll catch on eventually! But in the meantime, the rest of us are going to be saving money, making easier trades, and becoming better players without you. Oh snap! Sign up already!
Now on to that feature. Below you will see what I currently see when I click collection:
You’ll notice on the bottom right there is now a ‘Tradable List’. We added this so that you could separate things you won’t trade (for me Sky Sentinel) from things you will trade! Now look above my collection at the horizontal links. You’ll see one entitled ‘Sell’. Let’s click it.
What you see above is two separate lists. On the left, is everything that is on Covenant TCG’s ‘want’ list. Basically there is a 90%+ chance of us paying you cash or store credit for the products on this list. You can filter it by game, faction, rarity, etc. On the right (if you have added products to your collection) you will see a list of things that are on Covenant TCG’s ‘want’ list that are on your ‘have’ or ‘tradable’ list.
You can see Mega Sky Sentinel on the list on the right, so let’s just say I wanted to sell it to Covenant TCG. I click on the check box.
I only have 1, so I’ll change the number I want to sell to 1. Then I’ll click the trade button on the bottom right.
You can see in the picture above it shows what I am offering to Covenant. You can change the ‘type’ to cash or leave it at store credit. The estimated offer now appears. $27.98 store credit for my Sky Sentinel… Hmmm. Tempting. Let’s see what happens when I change it to cash and fill some things out.
So I wanted cash instead and now the offer is at $20.98. I selected paypal as the payment type (the other option is a check in which you’d have to enter the address you wanted the check sent to). So I had to enter my paypal email. I also left a little message about the trade. Then I went ahead and clicked submit.
A pop-up window tells me the trade has been submitted. Then I can click the Covenant Trades on the collection page (where you are redirected) and see any offers I’ve sent in. If Covenant hasn’t acted on the trade yet, the option to cancel is available. Let’s see what happens when Covenant responds.
So that’s it. Get over to the community site and sell Covenant TCG those miniatures that have been sitting on your shelf for a month! This is a great way to “trade in” what you aren’t using anymore in order to buy what you actually need. It also helps benefits every single Monpoc player. If you’ve got a lot of Martian units lying around that you haven’t played in two months, trade them in! There’s more than a few Martian players that will be happy to have access to them.
