PriceCharting Has Premium Features for Retailers


PriceCharting has had a Pro membership for several years. Pro gives users access to improved tools on the site. These tools were focused primarily at collectors. Another core user on PriceCharting is retailers. We've added a second premium membership with tools focused on retailers.

The same "Pro" tools are still available in the new "Collector" tier. We just changed the name.

New Features Just for Retailers

Demand Reports (or Most Wanted List)

See a list of the most wanted items on the site. Which games or trading cards do people have on their wishlists? You can filter the results by category and even console/set.

This tool will help you know what games are hot and should sell quickly. You can click "Sell Yours" button next to any item and quickly list your item for sale. If your price is good, we'll email everyone with that game on their wishlist and let them know it's available.


See Historic Sales Volume

The historic price charts on every item page will show the historic sales volumes. You can see if supply changed and better understand the reasons behind price changes.

The volume shown in the total volume across all conditions and the data goes back to February 2021.

Retail susbcribers can also sort the Hot Item lists by sales volume as well and see which games are selling the most and which had the biggest change in sales.

Collection Total Cost/Profit & Category Level Details


You can now view your total collection cost and total collection profit. AND you can view category level details so you know how much your video games are worth, vs your Pokemon cards, vs your Magic cards.

The cost and profit are visible on all collection pages.

To see the collection value by category, you need to filter the results to a specific category.

* Click "Sort Filter"
* Choose the category from "Category" dropdown



See Cost & Profit by Console/Set


You can also view console/set level details to see how much your Nintendo DS or Pokemon Evolving Skies cards are worth.

* Sort by category first
* Choose the specific console/set in the "Filter by Console" section



Cost & Profit Are Private


The cost and profit values are only visible to you. If you share your collection with someone else they will only see the value and the number of items.

View your collection today and try out these new features.

UPDATE: Local Currency Supported Too

Thanks for suggestions from users in comments, we've added support for your local currency.

The cost will always be in your local currency since you are adding that value manually. The value and profit will be converted to your local currency.

Price Index Charts for Trading Cards

Trading card prices rise and fall over time as certain sets become popular or interest ebbs and flows for a hobby. We've added a tool that let's you see how the value of a trading card set is changing over time.

The SP 500 or Dow Jones stock indexes tell you if the stock market is increasing or decreasing in value overall.



Our trading card indexes tell you the same thing for a particular set of Pokemon or Magic cards.



For every trading card set, you can see a chart showing the current average and median price for every card in that set. You can see how the prices change over time as well. Is Pokemon Base Set becoming more popular? Has interest in Pokemon McDonald's 2021 set dropped since launch? Are Magic Beta cards hot or not?

The indexes include only the base cards, no parallels and the index only considers ungraded cards. You can read more details about the indexes and how they are calculated.

The index includes the average and the median by default but you can toggle either on or off. You can also touch/hover on any point on the chart to see details about the price at that particular point in time.

We decided to show both the average and the median because they show different summaries of a set's popularity/value. The median means the same number of cards are more expensive and less expensive than the median price. The median isn't impacted heavily by value changes in the most expensive cards. The average price is more volatile and will go up and down more when the most expensive cards increase or decrease in price.

We hope this tool is helpful for your trading cards collecting.
