FEES

We’ve designed our marketplace to be simple. The commission fee is to be paid by the Seller of 8% for Physical listings, and 10% for Digital listings. This is only applied of the listing price for items that have been successfully sold within the Gameflip marketplace. This fee is deducted from the listing price before the funds are transferred to the Seller’s account.

SHIPPING/DELIVERY METHOD

Gameflip has two shipping flows based on either listing Physical or Digital items.

Physical Shipping (US Only):

  • Gameflip "$3" Shipping Option (Only available for Games and Collectibles)
    • This is for packages that weigh 8oz or less. If the item that get shipped with label weighs more than 8oz, the item will not be delivered or can cause issues with the delivery.
    • Cost is a flat $3 and the Seller can select who will pay for it, Seller or Buyer.
    • Utilizes USPS First Class Parcel and includes tracking to ensure the item is delivered safely.
    • Does not come with insurance.
    • If the item is confirmed to be lost, Gameflip will protect the Seller by making sure the item gets returned to the Seller or the Seller gets compensated appropriately for the lost item.
  • Gameflip "$1" Shipping Option (Only available for Games)
    • This is for Disc Only games to be mailed in CD Mailers and weighs 3oz or less. If you use this label on items that do not fit in these requirements, the item will not be delivered and will cause issues with the delivery.
    • Cost is a flat $1 and the Seller can select who will pay for it, Seller or Buyer.
    • Does not include a tracking number. If this is a concern we recommend the Gameflip $3 shipping option which includes a tracking number.
    • Does not come with insurance.
    • If the Seller chooses this option, Gameflip will not protect the Seller since there is no tracking number associated with the shipment. If this is a concern, we highly recommend choosing an option that has tracking.
  • Seller "Free Shipping" Option (Available for all Product Categories)
    • This option allows the Seller to choose their own shipping option such as USPS, FedEx, or UPS.
    • If the Seller chooses this option, Gameflip will not protect the Seller if no tracking number has been inputted into the transaction. We highly recommend choosing an option that has tracking. We also suggest purchasing mailing insurance for your package.

How soon you will ship:

  • Select the number of days required for handling.
  • Please note that if you do not ship the item within the number of handling days plus 1 day, then the Buyer will have the option to cancel the purchase.

Digital Delivery Method:

  • Automatic Delivery/Send Code
    • If you already have the code you are selling, you can choose the Automatic Delivery option in which you'll be required to input the code during the listing process. This option will automatically send the Buyer the code once it's purchased.
    • You can also choose up to 3 days for delivery if you do not have the code beforehand. Please note that the longer you wait may result in a lesser rating from the Buyer. 
  • Coordinated Transfers
    • This option is designed for a more open delivery in which the Seller and Buyer will need to work together to complete the transaction.
    • To protect yourself from any possible fraud from the Buyer, please make sure to document all before, during and after processes.

RATINGS

For each transaction, Gameflip requires the Buyer and Seller to rate each other. Our goal is to create a transparent marketplace that is safe for our community members. Our rating system allows you to choose from three types of ratings: Good, Neutral, Poor. We also highly suggest that you add a comment along with the rating to explain your full experience with the Buyer.

The Seller is required to rate the Buyer to finalize the transaction and when this step is complete, then all sales are final and the Seller automatically receives the funds in their Gameflip account.

RETURNS

Please see RETURNS in the Buyer Questions section.

CANCELLATIONS

If your listing has been sold and you are no longer able to fulfill the order or have come to an agreement with the Buyer to cancel the order. You can go to that particular sold listing and press the "I need to cancel the order" button. This option will only be available before you mark the listing as shipped. Once you mark the listing as shipped and need help canceling the listing, please contact Gameflip support.
