June 26, 2011
We just reached a few pretty nice milestones: the CAG community has added over 1,000,000 games to their user collections, 168,000 games to their wish lists and 40,000 items are available for sale or trade on the CAG Marketplace. If you haven't checked out these features, do it now!

The CAG Marketplace open beta is now available to anyone with a CAG account. Access is available through the main navigation bar at the top of every page.

Features now online:

  • Buy, sell and trade games with fellow CAGs - 100% FREE
  • Get matched up automatically with buyers/traders/sellers with priority given to those marked as friends (or friends of friends) and those with high feedback
  • Easily list your available games for trade only, for sale at a specific prices, or consider all offers
  • Compare retailer new prices, used prices, and trade-in values from most Marketplace pages
  • Chat in real time with users while trading; conversations will be saved
  • Browse a user's trade & wish lists while making trade proposals
  • Edit game trading status/info directly from your collection pages
  • Marketplace availability appears on CAG game info pages for maximum exposure (example)
  • Integrated feedback system (previous CAG feedback will be imported)
  • Store multiple shipping addresses and preferred PayPal address
Features coming soon:

  • Further Marketplace integration with other parts of CAG
  • Combined Collection and Trade List page
  • Browse by platform, price, and more
  • Add Available for Sale/Trade filter in My Matches

I'm looking forward to hearing your feedback on this early version of the CAG Marketplace!


Lots of changes today, including:
- Notification under the CAG logo when there are trades that require your attention.
- A speech bubble icon now denotes a trade that has been updated since you last viewed it.
- Trades that have recently been updated (or had messages posted to) will automatically be brought out of the archive regardless of status.
- Trades that have been accepted can now be cancelled, providing no items have been sent.
- A PM reminder will be sent to a user who hasn't responded to an offer for 3 days.
- Trade offers that haven't been responded to will be cancelled after 7 days.
- Inactive trades that are 30 days old will automatically have their status resolved and be moved to the archive. (Based on the previous status of the trade, and whether or not items have been sent/received.)
- A PM reminder will be sent if a user hasn't left feedback within 7 days of the end of the trade.

Tomorrow, we'll be adding:
- Price suggestion, when making an offer on a game.
- Mod escalation, users can ask to have a mod intervene in a trade. (Mods will be able to participate in the trade chat.)
- New payment methods.

Cool. I'll check it out when I get home and have time to explore. And I'm suprised so many people want InFamous yet. It's a good game but its been out awhile. I guess there just hasn't been any good deals for it.

jeezus.. im going to hate filling in my game collection (1k+ games)
Luckily my wishlist is small enough that I just keep my eye on the cag prices here and there and swoop in for the low price kill.

Cant wait to put this to some good use.

When a trade offer is made, very little information is sent in the private message that is created. Could the details of the trade (i.e. trading x for x, or paying x for x) be placed into the private message?

How does cost of shipping work in buying or trading? Trading I imagine no money changes hands, but is the cost to buy a game including shipping?

EDIT: Wait I just clicked again and it is now available. I tried numerous times and got the message. But it seems good now..

Just curious but when I'm in the Marketplace and click on "Tradelist", I get this message....

You do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

  • Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
  • If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
  • Users must be registered for 30 days before being able to leave trade feedback or create threads in the Referral or CAG Trading Forum. You may reply to threads created by other users.
Is this not available yet or do I need to do something else?

Yes shipping should be including in the price, we will make that more clear for seller and buyer.

Just curious but when I'm in the Marketplace and click on "Tradelist", I get this message...

That should be fixed now. Sorry!

On the iPhone I'm only getting about a 10% success rate when clicking on the marketplace link up top. I've tried 3g and my wireless Internet but when it does load I went to add games and it wouldn't load that page at all. I tried other sites and they load fine. Even other cag sites, but the trading keeps locking up.

I think this bug still seems to be around....if you look at "My Matches" list for example.....in the "Cheapeast - CAG Marketplace" it will say $25 from XUserX....the problem is when you click on the list of users...XUserX only had it for trade.....so the price and the Name are not being associated correctly.

Feedback seems to have some sort of issue. In the marketplace I only have one bit of feedback listed though it says score of 3. In itrader I have 3 listed.

Does it only import things you've bought or things you've sold or something?

WOW, CheapyD and team you did a great job with it. I am going to no longer use Craigslist or Amazon. Thanks.

Oh...how do I add a game not listed? Little Big Planet just doesn't want to show up for me.

Since there's an option for CSV downloads of your collection, will there be a CSV file upload option?

Feedback numbers also appear to be off. It's pulling the correct iTrader number for the total unique numbers of feedback, though total positive feeback numbers are off and only showing data back from 02/01/09, not the current date.

Oh shit, I thought it had been open...no wonder hardly anybody was using it...

LittleBigPlanet is one word. The search doesn't do partial words right now.

The minimum level of feedback you require a user to have before considering a trade with them.

thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
