And… we’re back!
Sorry for the downtime earlier today everyone, one of our servers had a mild heart attack when some of its RAM died. Everything has been fixed, and we’re back to running smoothly!
For those of you less technically inclined, this is basically what our server did this morning when it went down.
New Endpoint added to Yugioh Prices API
We’ve added a new endpoint to our API that allows you to retrieve a list of all the card sets currently in our database.

As always if you have any questions or suggestions to improve our API or website, please send us an email!

Now You Can Measure Market Demand Using Yugioh Prices!
Using the the anonymous daily sales data provided for us by eBay, Amazon, and TCGPlayer, we’ve developed a brand new feature for Yugioh Prices that we call Purchase Statistics.
With Purchase Statistics, users are now able to see precisely which cards are most in demand for any given period of time based on how many of those cards are purchased through Yugioh Prices each day.
Try it out for yourself, and let us know what you think!

Anonymous asked: can we get an update with duelist alliance cards please on the app.
We will soon be releasing an app update that includes an includes all of the Duelist Alliance cards in its internal database.
In the meantime however, you can manually update your app to include these cards by going to “Settings”, and then tapping the “Update Cards Database” button.
Anonymous asked: Absolutely love this app but card prices aren't always accurate i.e. Beelze of the Diabolic Dragons is listed as lowest price $3.17 from EBay. I double checked and the lowest price is actually $8.25.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention!
The issue with the price mismatch was caused by the listing title having the phrase “plus 3 cards” in it. This was causing our eBay scraper to evaluate this listing as being for multiple cards (i.e. something like “3x Beelze”) which in turn caused it to divide the total price by 3 in order to evaluate what the exact price per card actually was.
We have updated our scraper to be able to handle cases like these from now on, and the price mismatch will not happen again.
Thank you again for bringing this to our attention.
The best way to improve Yugioh Prices is to let us know when you find something wrong so we can fix it!
