Our support team gets a lot of questions on pre-sales. While we have always had very specific rules establishing who can pre-sell and what can be pre-sold, those rules have not always been 100% clear to our users. To correct this, we have added a pre-sales help page, which establishes our policy in detail and gives pre-sellers recommendations on how they should go about planning and participating in Cardmarket pre-sales. We'll also explain the basics of these rules and recommendations here.
The answer to the question "Who can pre-sell" is fortunately very simple. "Established" pro sellers can pre-sell on Cardmarket. An "established" pro is one who has made at least 1000 sales since they became a pro seller. The ability to pre-sell is a privilege on the website, however, so even if one is an established pro seller, they can lose their right to pre-sell if they fail to meet their pre-sale orders on time (on time means the order must be shipped on the product's release date). To make it easier for pros, we have a few recommendations for how our pros should engage with our pre-sale program:
