Liquid Auctions Submission Process

Submitting to Liquid Auctions is easy regardless of if your cards are vaulted or not.

We're delivering maximum value as quickly as possible to sellers through:

  • Cash advances: Receive a cash advance for up to 72% of a card's market value, determined using Alt Value and Expert Review.

  • Industry low fees: 8% seller fees, and when your cards sell above the agreed-upon cash advances, you get the difference minus fees. 
  • Instant payouts: Within seconds of the auction ending, proceeds will be deposited into the seller's Alt account and can be exercised on the platform or withdrawn immediately.
  • Immediate asset transfers: After the auction ends, the winning bidder will instantly receive the card deposited in their Vault.
  • End-to-end consignment: No further actions are needed once a card is approved by Alt's experts and confirmed by the seller. Immediate asset transfers to a buyer, similar to all other purchases on the platform.

All submissions are reviewed by an Alt Card Expert and after approval, are eligible to receive a cash advance up to 72% of a card's market value, determined using Alt Value and Expert Review. At that point, you will decide to move forward and confirm submission to Liquid Auctions or retract your card.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I submit cards to an auction from my vault?

Submit for Liquid Auctions from your Portfolio. Simply select "List on Alt" on a card, then select "Sell on Liquid Auctions". Please reach out to support if you have a card you'd like to submit that currently has a pending or need for review Alt Value.

 

How do I submit cards to an auction that are not vaulted?

Reach out to support communicating the cards for submission by sending images of your cards. We will add them as unvaulted assets to your Portfolio. No further actions are needed at that point to submit for review, other than to not delete the unvaulted asset records created. 

 

How far in advance of an auction must unvaulted cards be received? 

Unvaulted cards must be received at least one week in advance of an auction. If an approved auction card is received less than a week in advance, it may be included in the following auction. More information on how to send your cards to the Vault can be found here

 

Cash advance turnaround time?

Vaulted: applied within 3 business days of submission approval.

Not Vaulted: applied within 3 business days once after completing Vault processing.

Alt assumes all the risk, meaning, that if your item sells above the agreed-upon cash advance, you get the difference minus fees. If your item sells for less than the agreed-upon cash advance, you get to keep your cash advance. All cash advances are issued to your Alt account balance.

 

What cards are eligible for submission?
