Promoted Trades Have Arrived
You can now add bonuses and set your own prices for cards you’d like to receive, directly from the Card Detail Page for the 100 cards included in the initial rollout. Check out the full list below to begin!
We announced this feature last month, but if you’re new to the conversation be sure to catch up here.
Shop the Sales
Looking to maximize the value of cards you send on Puca? Then Promoted Trades are for you. Each Promoted Trade has a bonus associated with it. The full bonus will be credited to your account when your trading partner completes the trade.
You can find all of the trades that are currently being promoted on the Send Page. Just click the drowpdown and select Promoted Trades (making sure that you're sorting on List View, not Package View). All promoted trades appear in gold font and have the Promoted icon in the card name.
Graduated Listing Fees
A month ago, we asked other PucaTrade members in a survey: How much should the PucaPoint fee be for a promoted listing? There were a wide range of responses with the majority of them clustering around 10-15% with overwhelming support for discounts offered to Premium members.
We like the idea of this discount being offered to our Premium members too, so we'll begin by offering our Rare (Gold) members a 5% discount and our Uncommon (Silver) members 3% on the listing fee, which will be 15% of the card’s value for the initial rollout.
If you're as excited about this feature as we are, there's never been a better time to upgrade!
Initial Launch and Rollout
We're rolling this feature out incrementally to ensure that it has the positive effect on trade we anticipate. We'll start by enabling promotions on 100 cards; 50 staff picks and 50 chosen by the PucaTrade community in a recent survey.
It's also worth noting that this is just the first iteration of this feature. We have some improvements lined up for future production, such as:
- Adding green bonus deltas everywhere the promoted price is listed
- Adding the Promoted Filter to package view on the Send page
- Additional rollout to all remaining cards
For now, we hope you enjoy the first crack at this exciting new feature! Without further ado, here are the cards that are currently available to promote:

UPDATE 1/20/2016: New Cards Added
Promoted Trades Stats (Live Updating)
Interpretation of Chart: Promoted Cards Traded Daily vs. Non-Promoted (Count and Value)
This chart tracks the total number of trades from 79 of the cards from our initial cohort of cards that can be promoted (in yellow) as compared to 79 cards of the same name with different expansions that cannot yet be promoted (in blue). For example, Blood Moon (DRK) is counted in the yellow lines because it can be promoted, and Blood Moon (8ED) is be included in the blue lines because it cannot.
The Y1 axis tracks the count of cards sent, and correlates to the light yellow and light blue lines. The Y2 axis tracks the total value of cards sent, and correlates to the dark yellow and blue lines.
Therefore, if the Yellow lines are consistently higher than the blue, it’s a very strong indication that the promoted trades feature is performing successfully.
