I love it! No longer will gamers have to trade in games for horrid prices at game stores. Thanks for making it available.

Thanks, but I do have one grief. I was going to add my Final Fantasy collection to my list of games, but some games aren't in the system. When I first entered 'Final Fantasy', I would only get a page of results and that was it. Entering individual names were hit or miss such as 'Final Fantasy X'.

Question about the trading process in general. If I make a few proposals to trade and lets say 2 people both accept those offers, can I still back one out without getting bad feedback? I have Bioshock and I see a few people selling Mass Effect 1, I'd love to make a bunch of offers and see who bites on that offer. BUT I don't want to piss someone off if I say sorry I traded it already.

Any advice would help. Thanks.

Nice! Finally convinced me to register! ;D

Well you could always sell it on amazon or ebay, bro. lol Nobody forces you to trade in games for 1/10th their actual price.

Wow, this looks great. I had no idea you were looking to make a more official form of trading for the site. Might very well interest me in trying it out at some point.

I am confused a bit about one piece. If I choose to trade a game with one person, then make an offer for the same thing with another person the original trade disappears.

Feedback syncing will be done later on today, in place of the old iTrader system. In the meantime, some of the feedback totals might be wrong.

Looking into this.

We'll have to have a think about this... on one hand it could get annoying if people submit offers to everyone owning a copy of a game with low offers, hoping for a bite - but on the other hand being able to send a few different offers with some game overlap could be useful. If so, we'll probably add an option to let users automatically cancel a trade request as soon as a game is added to their collection, or another trade containing that game is accepted.

Awesome, but we should be able to add MS points, subscriptions, movies, and other tech/accessories.


There's a good chance that we'll be doing that.

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.


Yep, I can add CSV import for collections/trade lists. Could you send me a sample file? (I've PM'd you my email address.)

Cheapy were is the IPHONE app. If it is available what do I need to search for in the apps store?


I'll be finishing off the app as soon as I'm done with the major marketplace bugs/requested features. Apparently the app store approval process is a lot quicker nowadays, so it shouldn't be too long after that.

Thanks. What I did today was make 3 different offers with Bioshock (1 sent to me, 2 I sent out). It only shows 1 trade, but all 3 of the text comments under the last trade.

That would be great, keep in mind that some people may have multiple copies of a game, so this could cause them problems too.

Thanks for the feedback, the feature is now my number 1 reason to log into CAG multiple times a day.

Are you going to add in the option to list shipping cost? I don't think any of the games listed that I'm interested include shipping cost. I did notice a user make a comment that the price included shipping cost, but that was it.

Also notice that people are listing movies as games. I saw 'Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children' listed as a PS3 game. I know that in Japan the movie included the FF13 demo.

Maybe I'm not looking in the right place, but how do I browse by platform\genre? For example I want to see if anyone has GBA games for sale or trade, can I go to a page where it will retrieve that from the available lists?

Is there any way I can import a want list from another site to populate my want list on here? (Using a common format like CSV)

I'm working on a better way to browse games with proper platform filtering - right now the browsing areas are only for high demand/popular games, but that'll change soon. (CSV import is coming too.)

Is there a way to look at like every game by system?
Like a page where you click on a system, then a list of games for that system for sale are listed (and if theres multiple sellers the link goes to a list of those sellers).

we need a price before shipping option, and perhaps a shipping calculator too

When creating/editing their trade list, the seller is prompted that his stated price should include shipping.

Just threw out a trade request. Lets see this baby in action. 8-)

Edit: Not sure if this has been mentioned (just skimmed the thread), but my offers are not showing up in the marketplace. Put up a handful of games almost 8 hours ago too.

Edit2: Also, on a couple of listings, the lowest price available does not sync up correctly with who's offering it in "my matches".

Example:

"My Matches":
Cheapest - CAG Marketplace:
$10 from CAGUSERNAME123

After you click the listing which brings you down to ALL available listings:
$10 from USERNAMECAG987

Basically, on "my matches" it shows me that it's available from this CAG for this price. However, once I click on all available listings, the lowest price is actually offered by a different CAG and the CAG from "my matches" is actually offering the game at a price different from what I saw in "my matches".

Hope this makes sense..

Originally, you didn't see your own listings...that has been changed. You should see it now.

dont think this has been asked... is there some kind of region filter like on goozex? id hate to make a trade just to find out the guy lives in china or something and then have to back out. or am i going to have to ask every single person if they are in america?

Outstanding. I used to trade alot on another site, but left when it fell to pieces.

This is the only other thing I needed from CAG. Well done!

Gonna check it out soon. Shame is I recently sold about 400 of my games on Amazon. Got a nice amount of cash, but I hardly have anything left to trade :P
