Let's say I were to sell cards to the DGz store. If I wanted to purchase cards/supplies, would it be possible to just use the money or values of the sold cards as store credit, rather than wait for it to deposit to my PayPal, then turn around and purchase the cards/supplies?

Yes, when you sell cards you have the option to get either a paypal payment or store credit. We actually give you a 10% bonus if you select the store credit option.

I know that the text of the logo is written in Chinese, it can be edited by any text or anything they want.

The text means "Card Game"

Tomorrow I'm going to open our doors to North America

were you only shipping to Africa before?

I meant the rest of North America obv. Contrary to popular belief, the continent consists of more than the United States and Canada.

... Alaska?

Good luck with everything Allen

Hopefully you get all your card lists done soon
My advice would be to add accessories individually. First would be T-shirts. You'd have to find out who your local printers are but it really shouldn't be hard.
After T-shirts I would try to develop playmats. Those would be the 2 to concentrate on since you will be adding tons of exposure through free advertising with those products.
I would not recommend branching into sleeves, deckboxes and so forth until much later. They will be difficult to create, and not add that much exposure tbh. Also, it would be difficult to have competitive prices with low quantities and most people just aren't going to pay $10 for Ultra Pros with a DGZ logo on them

As for product, it all depends on your contacts. Its too bad I don't live closer because I know some distributors in Ontario. Honestly, you could even develop a formal arrangement with one of the bigger online retailers to buy product at slightly above cost. Go to your locals and find out who they get product from (most do not buy direct from konami)

Buying from individuals can be profitable but its very time consuming. Pretty much only worth buying collections, and I generally have to see the collection with my own eyes before I can offer a price. I'm sure you already know this, sorry, just trying to help

Anyways, best of luck

I'm well familiar with all of the major distributors right now. There's basically GTS, Southern Hobby, PHD, ACD, and Alliance. Buying product from stores at slightly above cost is not only impossible (it would be an unfavorable exchange for them due to the opporunity cost of being able to sell at retail) but also a terrible idea. I'm going for a low cost business model, so the last thing I want to be doing is paying more for product than everyone else. You're also stone wrong about buying cards. Every event I go to I spend $1K-2K on buying singles alone, and almost none of it is in the form of collections. Especially at events like regionals, I'm the only one who buys cards at reasonable prices, so I just have a field day.

If you have the option to have cards automatically sorted by price when the customer chooses a set to browse you should definitely turn that on. I know Ideal808 does it so it must be possible.

I was just browsing through and it was really irritating having to either select the option and refresh or browse through every crappy out of stock common.

Forcing people to browse through the "not chase" stock before they get to what they want is a great way to get people to see your stock and maybe buy lesser stuff. However, since I doubt you're going to be actively stocking all the super low end commons it's nothing more than an irritation.

I'm one of those shoppers that will happily check every set you have in stock too see if there's anything I want, but having to wade through crappy commons turns me off pretty quick. I know I'm not the only one.


Excellent work though, site is pretty badass.

Most other people have told me that they'd rather it be sorted alphabetically, and the fact that it sorts by price by default on most sites is annoying. It doesn't seem like it's that hard to change the settings yourself, and most people just use the card search anyways. Also, I am going to be actively stocking the $0.25 commons. It's called buying bulk.

As far as the graphic contest goes, I got a lot less participation than I expected, but oh well. I didn't see any logos that I liked, so I'm having a professional designer that I know irl work on that. Shrillex wins the banner contest, but I want the logo (that has yet to be completed) incorporated in the banner. So I'll be working with Shrillex to make those finishing touches on the banner and it should replace the old banner within a week.

Also, I think the slogan I'm going to use (for stuff like the banner, T-shirts, business cards, etc) is going to be "Competitive prices for competitive players." It think it reflects well on DGz's essence.
