About us

Welcome to Card Merchant!

Who are we?

Chloe and Matt run the website and are a couple of dedicated players. Chloe is involved with Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh while Matt is heavily involved with Magic: the Gathering. If you attend high level events regularly, you've likely seen us around. Matt regularly tops some of NZ's biggest events for MTG, while Chloe was a worlds representative for Pokemon a couple of years ago. This website was formed because we believe that NZ customers deserve a better service than they're getting. We aim for the website to be easy to use and cost-effective for you. With our specialist knowledge, we also have lots of articles and other content so you can stay up to date with what's going on.
