The seller agrees to pay the shipping cost to ship the items to MtgFanatic. In the event that items are rejected for any reason, the payment for cost of shipping to return the rejected items will be deducted from the disbursement.
Payment times can vary based on numerous factors such as daily sales or the quantity of items sold to us. Store credit disbursement is made as soon as the sale is processed. Check and Paypal payments are entered into a payment queue where sales are generally paid in a first-in, first-out basis. There are occasionally exceptions to this rule that are up to our discretion. We send payments each week and we pay for sales as soon as possible to keep the payment time as low as possible.
Current Avg Payment Time: 5 months (we strongly recommend store credit which is paid as soon as the sale is processed.)
- Return of Rejected Items
Most return shipments will have a tracking number so the seller can track the status of the return shipment. MtgFanatic is not responsible for packages lost or damaged by the shipping carrier.
- Shipping Times
All sales to MtgFanatic.com are expected to be shipped within 2 business days. Packages postmarked more than 2 days after the sale date may be rejected due to the overstocking of items or price changes of items in the sale.
Prices listed on the buylist are estimates based on the prices we are currently selling the products for. Though it is uncommon, prices are subject to change if there is a dramatic change in the price that we are selling an items for.
After a sale is processed, you will recieve an email containing the processing report. This report contains the final price offered and a summary of the items accepted and rejected. You have 48 hours to request a return of items that have had a change of price. After 48 hours, the prices are accepted and the disbursement of your sale will be for the prices contained within the processing report.

- Shipping Times
The shipping times posted on our website are estimates only. We do not guarantee shipping times because once the package leaves our facility, the delivery time is out of our control.

We reserve the right to cancel any order for any reason. Possible reasons for cancellation include, but are not limited to the following:
- Suspected Fraudulent Order
Before shipping orders, we run a check to make sure they are legitimate. If the check fails, we may cancel your order.
Due to the sometimes volatile market for collectible products, sometimes there are major fluctuations in price. Therefore, we reserve the right to remove any item from any order and provide a full refund to the customer for that item.
If payment is not received within a reasonable amount of time (currently 30 days) after the order has been placed, we may cancel an order without notice.
We Reserve the Right to Decline Purchase Of Any Item.
We reserve the right to reduce the purchase quantity of any item for any reason. Reasons that the purchase quantity may be reduced include the following but are not limited to:

As with any data entry job, there may be occasional data entry errors in which the listed price is incorrect. In these cases, we may reduce the quantoty of the item or remove the item from your order.
- Rapid Price Fluctuations
Due to the sometimes volatile nature of the collectible market, sometimes there are rapid price fluctuations. In these cases, we have the right to reduce the purchase quantity of an item.
We are well aware of the fact that prices may go up and down significantly as the result of new erratas, card rulings, banning and restricting of cards and the release of deck lists. If you purchase items that have spiked as a result of one of these lists and we have not yet updated the price, do not be surprised if the item is removed from your order. We understand that some people stay up until midnight to see the new deck lists and then snatch up all the cards from card vendors before they can update their prices. We do not support this. If you do this, the item(s) will likely be removed from your order and you will be refunded for the items in full. We do not have people working around the clock, this is a small operation involving a small handful of people and we reserve the right to properly update the prices.
If you purchase a large quantity of an item that has significantly changed in price, it is VERY likely that the purchase quantity of that item will be reduced. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not purchase large quantities of items, especially ones that have changed in price significantly.

What is the Express Checkout and How Do I Use It?
The express checkout feature allows you to checkout more quickly by using settings from previous orders. Basically, it allows you to save a template that you can apply to future orders. As long as you want to apply the same settings as one of your saved Express Checkout Settings, you can skip the entire checkout process and jump directly to the confirmation screen.
To take advantage of this feature, all you need to do is checkout. On the confirmation screen, there will be an option to save the settings for future orders.
How Do I File An Insurance Claim?
To file an insurance claim, we will need the following information from you:
- Order Number
- The reason for your claim. (ie, missing package, damaged merchandise, etc..)
Note that we only accept claims if a package was shipped at least 20 days ago for domestic orders, and 30 days ago for international orders.
My Order Has Not Arrived Yet, What Do I Do?
Unfortunately, with all mailing services, there is the chance for error on the part of the delivery company. The following are possible reasons your order could be late:
- Your package could have been mis-routed to the wrong city. If this happens, the carrier will need to re-direct your package to the correct city.
- Large natural disasters such as flooding, tornadoes, earthquakes, hurricanes, large snow storms, etc... around the country.
- Your package could require signature with no-one there to sign for it. if you get a notice in your mail, please call your post office to arrange for delivery.
Because packages are occasionally delivered late due to errors on the part of the carrier, we cannot re-ship insured packages until suffiecient time has passed so it is safe to assume the package is missing. For domestic orders, this is a 20-day period. For international orders, this is a 30-day period. If your package is missing after the specified number of days, you can contact us to re-send the package if it was insured and the tracking number does not state that the package was delivered.
What Are Your Shipping Rates?
Shipping rates are determined by the following:
- Shipping Destination
- Combined weight of the ordered items
- Size of the ordered items
Because these are unknown until the time of checkout we cannot quote the shipping cost. However, when you are logged into your account, the shipping rates will be shown on your shopping cart for the items in your shopping cart.
