Liquid Auctions Submission Process

Submitting to Liquid Auctions is easy regardless of whether your cards are vaulted or not. We're delivering maximum value as quickly as possible to sellers through:

  • Cash advances: Receive cash advances that are dynamic and dependent on multiple factors (market, card liquidity, grade, and condition)
  • Fast asset transfers: Once a transaction has settled, the winning bidder will receive the card in their Vault
  • End-to-end consignment: No further actions are required once a card has been approved by Alt's experts and confirmed by the seller

All submissions are reviewed by an Alt expert and cards that are evaluated at a value of $250 or higher, are eligible to receive a cash advance. 

 

Seller's will receive commission on each auction sale based on the tiers below:

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 that are not vaulted?

If you have unvaulted cards in your possession that you’re interested in selling in Liquid Auctions, please photograph them and contact support@alt.xyz. The cards can be added as unvaulted assets, and will have to be sent to the Alt Vault before being included in an auction. 

 

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

Cards must be received by the vault 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 Cards: Applied within three business days of submission approval.

Not Vaulted Cards: Applied within three business days after completion of Vault processing.

 

How does the cash advance work?

Cards that are submitted to an upcoming auction and evaluated at a value of $250 or higher by our Card Experts, will be eligible to receive a cash advance. Alt provides cash advances that are dynamic and dependent on multiple factors (market, card liquidity, grade, and condition) and aren't necessarily what we believe a card's market value to be but rather what we are comfortable advancing. 

All cash advances are applied to your Alt account balance within three business days of submission receipt from the Alt Support Team.

 

What cards are eligible for submission?

Only cards graded by PSA, BGS, BVG, SGC, and CSG are eligible for sale on the platform. They must also not fall into the below categories, and if they do, they are not eligible for sale, only storage.

  • Qualifiers: In addition to a numerical grade, some graded companies also carry a Qualifier to identify specific characteristics of the card.
  • Authentic Only: Only certifies that the card is genuine but hasn't applied a numerical grade to the card itself.

QA Callout: Alt has a robust quality assurance practice for all cards processed into our Vault. Any damaged (cracked/scratched/tilted labels) or mislabeled slabs will not be eligible for sale on the platform. Please double-check all slabs for damage before sending any to the Vault.

 

If a card does not sell, what happens?

Alt will give you the option to pay back the cash advance in order to repossess the card in the event that the asset receives zero bids upon completion of the Liquid Auction cycle. If you do not wish to return the cash advance, Alt will retain ownership of the card after the auction ends.

 

How far in advance of an auction must cards be submitted for approval?

Cards must be submitted for approval at least one week in advance of an auction. 

 

Do cards need to be vaulted to be listed in an auction?

Similar to all other purchases on the platform, cards must be vaulted to be listed in an auction.
