User Account Fees

Withdrawal Fees

  • Withdrawals in Euros (€): There are no fees charged for withdrawing funds in Euros, making it cost-effective for users within the Eurozone.

Buying and Selling Fees

  • Buying: Cardmarket does not charge any fees for purchasing cards, which encourages trading and collecting without extra costs.
  • Trustee Service: Depending on the shipping method selected, fees range from 0.5% to 1% of the total article value. This service ensures transaction security, particularly for higher-value trades.
  • Selling: Sellers incur a fee of 5% of the article value per article sold, with a maximum cap of €100/£ per article. This fee is significant for sellers as it affects the net revenue from sales.
