We’re steadily moving towards our target “beta 1” release date of December 1st. We still have a few more major vendors to add, some tweaks to make to the “fair trade price” algorithm (which I’ll outline soon), two major features and a LOT of bug fixes (right now, Planeshift is entirely missing and the site has lots of missing prices and some missing cards.) Oh, and foil cards too 🙂
Still, we’re making steady progress and met another milestone yesterday with integration of the prices from tcgplayer.com and their affiliated stores. TCGPlayer collects information from a large number of smaller stores – something that si generally harder to track and we greatly appreciate them allow us to use their data on this site.
As always, if you have any comments, please let us know below!
This is the second ALPHA (as in, before beta) test of MTGPrice.com and we’re pretty happy with the progress so far.
Our goal is to build the world’s fastest, most accurate service for our users to get pricing information about single magic: the gathering cards. We want to allow players that trade cards regularly to quickly find the trade value of those cards to see if they are getting a fair deal. In addition, we want players to be able to track the value of their collections over time and provide tools to buy and sell entire collections of cards.
To ensure our impartiality, we don’t plan on selling cards ourselves, instead we just want to show players the prices on other sites and let them make up their own mind.
We are currently looking for additional beta testers. If you’re interested in testing out the new features please sign up for the private beta at: http://eepurl.com/g1zoT
