Given that the included providers do not update their prices frequently, it would be appreciated if additional providers that update more quickly could be provided as options.

Examples:

TCGPlayer offers an API that feeds their low, middle and high prices: http://store.tcgplayer.com/faq.aspx#Q9

An example implementation can be seen in the top left here, the "L: M: H:" section: http://magiccards.info/query?q=tragic+slip&v=card&s=cname

I imagine these would each have to be implemented as their own provider, but I am not sure.

In addition, StarCityGames is one of the most frequently used price providers and offers up-to-date pricing, albeit not as nicely. For example: http://sales.starcitygames.com//search.php?substring=Sulfur+Falls&auto=Y

Thank you!

    I'd like to second this request, particularly for TCGPlayer, I feel like their data is consistently good.

    I'd love to have www.magickartenmarkt.de as price provider.

     
  • TCGPlayer - I don't see any links directly to pricing, I wrote to them about API, they hide it pretty well
    MagicCard info - have price per card, it would pretty expensive to pull a web page for each card
    StarCityGames purposly obfuscate their prices on the web page so it cannot be read automatically (really don't know what they are trying to achieve here)
    MagicCardMarket is german site, even if I try english version prices are in Euro and I don't support it

    I saw the TCGPlayer options added to the latest version, and confirmed they work quite well. Thank you very much!

    Firstly thank you for your MA software.
    For European gamers it would be useful to have www.magiccardmarket.eu as price provider. Thanks.

    Yes, www.magiccardmarket.eu would be really helpful.
    In addition to that, european players are interested in € values. Can you use Google Calculator API to map the different currencies?

    would it be possible to add multiple "dbprice" entries in the xml file to hold prices of multiple providers? And to select which currency to use $/€?

    I would suggest an extra folder PriceDB with files holding the prices for different cards. e.g. PriceDB/TCGPlayer.xml holding prices of TCGPlayer. The mapping can easily be done using the card id. In the header, the used currency can be listed.

    <prices>
    <name>TCG Player mid</name>
    <comment></comment>
    <curr>USD</curr>
    <list>
      <mp>
        <id></id>
        <dbprice></dbprice>
      </mp>
      ...
    </list>
    </prices>
    

    or a subfolder for each seller and an xml file per set

    PriceDB/TCGPlayer/Tempest.xml
    PriceDB/TCGPlayer/Stronghold.xml
    PriceDB/TCGPlayer/Exodus.xml
    ...
