Before You Sell – Frequently Asked Questions
How long do I have to send you the cards?
Sell orders that are placed with us give us an idea of inventory that will be coming into the building,
so orders must be postmarked or dropped off in-store within 7 days of placing your order. Orders
postmarked after 7 days may have their orders canceled or purchase prices updated on receipt.
How long does the grading process take?
The grading process will fluctuate depending upon how busy we are and how many orders we have at the
time. After your order arrives in our facility, we will verify its contents and update the status as
received within 48 hours. Once the order is marked as received, it will be graded and finalized in 1 to
5 business days.
Do you contact me with the grading results before finalizing my order?
In order to keep the grading flow as fast as possible, we will only contact you with the grading results
if you leave a comment in the customer comment field requesting that you be contacted regarding the
results before finalization. Otherwise, your order will be graded and finalized in regular fashion.
Can I change my mind and get my cards back after my order is finalized?
The only way we can provide you a return of your cards, if you change your mind regarding the grading or
you disagree with the grades you’ve received, is if you have left a comment in the customer comment
section of your order requesting that you be contacted with the results before finalization. Once we’ve
finalized an order, the order is committed to our live inventory and is immediately sent to our
fulfillment team to be incorporated into the inventory floor. There will be no way to tell which cards
are yours at that point, so we will not be able to return the cards to you if you change your mind.

How to Pack Singles
This section is regarding packaging singles, collections and product orders. Bulk orders are packaged
slightly differently and are notated in the Selling Bulk section.
Order Timelines and Receiving Your Payment
This section will explain the grading process, the approximate timeline of a sell order, and how your payment
will be totaled and distributed to you.
- Once your order is received by our team, we will verify its contents and update the status of your order
within 48 hours. You may see a notification from your shipping company before you see a modification to
your sell order. We go through multiple pallets of mail each day, so once the pallet with your package
is delivered to us, it may be a few hours before we are able to open the package and extract your order
to mark it as received.
- Your cards will make their way to a grader after being received, and your order will be graded and
finalized in one to five business days, depending on how many orders we have at the time.
- Once your order is graded and finalized, your payment will be issued. Paypal and Store Credit payments
are issued within 24 hours of the order being finalized. Check payments will be run through our bank in
Arizona, and they will be cut the next business day and shipped to you shortly after that. Check
delivery generally takes 3-5 business days, depending on where you live in proximity to Arizona, but can
take up to 2 weeks.
- Card Kingdom is unable to pay for cards not received by our Grading Department, even if they appear
on the invoice. If a card is not included in your sell order shipment for any reason, we cannot
offer cash or store credit for the card. Please make sure that your invoice correctly reflects what
is in your sell order.
Payments for cards are done by a percentage system based on the NM buy price for a card. You will see the NM
buy price for a card listed when you are adding cards onto your sell order. Depending on the price of the
card and what edition the card is from, we will pay a certain percentage of the base NM buy price for the
card. The percentage break-down is listed below:
|Less than $15
|15.00 - 24.99
For example, if you had an Amonkhet card that had a base buy price with us of $25, but it was graded down to
EX, we would pay $21.25 for the card, or 85%. If you had an Alpha card with a base buy price of $25 and it
was graded down to EX, you would receive $20 for the card, or 80%.
Note - when you are finished making your sell order, you will see a total at the bottom of the invoice
showing the added total of the cards on your order. The total you see is a combination of all your listed
cards if they are graded at NM. If the cards are not graded at NM, you will see the initial total go down
when your order is finalized. If cards are graded as BG, or Below Good, they will be returned to you and
their price will be removed from your total.

- When shipping bulk orders, you do not need to put the cards in order singularly. If you are selling more

are sending in a singles sell order as well, you will want to keep that separated from the bulk items to
prevent confusion. Otherwise, you can refer to the How to Pack Orders section for suggestions on how best to

We operate our grading by using our own grading guides, rather than grading guides from other sites. The
grades also reflect the card in its entirety, rather than some singular aspects, so grades may fluctuate.
Due to this system, you have upper and lower ends of each tier, such as a high-end EX or a low-end NM. Cards
are judged upon a case by case basis but will always use this grading system as their core.
Near Mint (NM): Cards graded at Near Mint have little to no damage. These cards still have their sheen. Minor corner whitening or surface clouding may be allowed if the damage is only seen under very close inspection.
Excellent (EX): Cards graded at Excellent have minor wear, often from gentle play. Cards in this condition may have small amounts of whitening or border wear, light scratches, or small indents. Mild, widespread surface clouding or sheen disruption also fall under Excellent.
Very Good (VG): Cards graded at Very Good have significant wear. Whitening around all edges, moderate surface damage, or larger sections of border wear fall under Very Good. This category also includes more noticeable tactile damage, such as larger indents, shallow bends, or small creases.
Good (G): Cards graded at Good are tournament playable, but show extensive wear. This category includes heavy whitening around all edges, heavy surface scuffing or scratches, and large creases. Cards may also show moderate dirt build-up or widespread shallow indents.
Cards showing excessive whitening, inking, creases that can be felt through sleeves, or other extensive damage may fall below our Good category and be returned to you.
