How It Works
Trading for PucaPoints is what differentiates us from the other ways to trade. PucaPoints make it easier to find a trade match, since you don’t need to have the exact cards your partner wants.
Once you earn PucaPoints, other traders will be able to see all the cards on your Want List that you can afford, and they’ll be able to send them to you at any time.
Here's how to get started, in 3 easy steps:
1. Earn Points
You can earn PucaPoints in two different ways.
- Mail cards to earn PucaPoints equal to their value.
- Purchase them from the PucaStore in your sidebar
To send cards and begin earning points by trading, navigate to the Send Page to get matched with traders, then initiate trades and mail as many cards as you'd like. As soon as the cards you mail arrive you'll earn PucaPoints (you'll be credited the points when they confirm that they've received the cards).
2. Get Cards
This is the fun part. If you already know what cards you want you can add them to your Want List using the Quick Card Adder (make sure you're on List Mode instead of Visual Mode).
If you'd prefer to browse for cards you might want, our advanced search is a great place to start. Some Dragons perhaps?
Pro Tip: The more cards you want, the more trades you’ll get. Load up your Want List and carry a high point-balance to give your inbound action a boost.
When the cards arrive in your mailbox, don’t forget to complete the trade! Once you check the trade in, your points will be released from escrow and deposited in your trading partner’s account.
We have some advanced tools that make trading even easier.
Building a comprehensive Have List containing every card you'd like to trade is the most effective way to trade on PucaTrade. Although it may be a bit of work initially, it will allow you to use our auto-matching feature, which is a powerful time-saver in the long-term.
The auto-match feature shows you the cards you care about most: the cards you actually want to trade. Any time this toggle is “on” cards you don’t have will be filtered out of the results set.
Once you’ve completed your Have List, you’ll also have access to Package View, which will group cards together with a convenient birds-eye view.
