Vault Fees

Vault Fees:

You can Vault any raw or graded cards with ALT for a one-time fee of $5 per card, which includes digitization, storage, and insurance. Please note this fee can only be paid with funds from your ALT Account. We currently do not accept any other payment methods.

ALT will waive its $5 intake fee on select cards graded by PSA, BGS, or SGC. These include cards graded 8 or higher, as well as cards that have an ALT Value of at least $100.

Raw cards and cards graded by other services will always receive a $5 intake fee when sent to ALT’s Vault. There are no ongoing storage fees for any cards Vaulted with ALT.

All cards shipped out of the Vault will be charged 1% of their ALT Value at the time of outtake. There is a maximum fee of $30 per card in an Outtake, and a shipping limit of 25 cards per outtake. Cards purchased on ALT within 10 days of a shipping request from the Vault will not be charged this fee.

If ALT has not received payment after 7 days of any incurred balance, a late fee of 1.5% of the total outstanding account balance will be applied to the ALT account. Should an account be suspended due to non-payment, an additional reinstatement fee of 8.5% of the total outstanding account balance will be applied and due upon account reinstatement.

Shipping to the Vault:

Customers are responsible for shipping charges to the Vault. A prepaid shipping label can be created from your ALT Profile, and you will be invoiced for shipping charges via the platform once the carrier processes your shipment. Standard shipping rates apply. Customers are also responsible for all insurance coverage for packages sent to the Vault. This can be done through a shipping carrier or a personal policy.

You’ll be charged for items in the Vault within 3 business days of receipt. Vault charges will be shown in your given timezone on account statements and email notifications. In addition, you can view all historic charges by visiting the account activity section found under profile settings. Upon outtake, you’ll be asked to settle any outstanding storage charges as well as outtake fees.

Due to the prevalence of raw cards being sent as "filler cards", the Vault team will not hold raw cards indefinitely. To avoid erroneous fees being charged, ALT will reach out to customers directly if large amounts of raw cards are addressed to a Customer's Vault. Raw cards that arrive at the Vault will be disposed of if ALT does not hear from a customer in a 2-week period once they've been contacted.
