On top of lowering prices per card sale to U.S. sellers with 1$ USD shipping, eBay has once again introduced a new system to make TCG sales more convenient.

With the continued surge in trading cards on eBay, with stats like 125 trading card listed/98 cards sold per minute, eBay is looking to up its numbers while cutting listing times in half. This new function is part of the eBay mobile app and lets users scan their trading cards where they will be processed on a listing directly.

This tool will be available to all Magic: The Gathering cards first with both Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG coming in May. Sports cards along with other collectible cards will come at a later date.

To give you an idea of the volume of cards eBay processes, some quick facts can be found below:

Over 57 million trading cards sold on eBay since 2020
