How to Send Codes

  • Email - Please include submission # and name in subject line
    •  Scanned via phone app such as Pokellector*  - Phone app is recommended to reduce errors
    • In a spreadsheet (.CSV or .XLSX) - single file please
    • Manually typed into an email - Errors are your responsibility
  • Mail

For security reasons, we do not accept PDF or TXT files. If you send these file types, we will request another form or refuse your submission.

To speed up the processing time, we do not accept pictures of codes unless otherwise stated.

We have a way to sort and verify codes. As such, we do not need any headers or labels to determine a code. Please only send us a list of codes.

Codes that say "Picture Required" will ONLY be paid the advertised rate if you send us a picture of the code card with your submission. If you do not follow instructions, we can not properly verify the codes and you will be paid .03 for any applicable codes. 

Selling Limits

If you expect your total to exceed $250, please send us an email so we can approve your submission.


Anything Else I Should Know?

Tools you can use to ensure you are maximizing your payout;

  • You can validate codes via PTCGO or the Pokemon site  Any and all redeemed or invalid codes are your responsibility. 
  • Apps such as Pokellector will help minimize invalid code / duplicate errors. We recommend that you submit codes either via one of these apps or via mail.
  • We are here to help should you have any questions! 

Some codes can only be verified by looking at the code card. Those codes will have "Contact Us" instead of a buying rate.
