To sell on Alt, cards must be graded by PSA, BGS, BVG, SGC, or CGC and stored in our Vault. We offer a vaulting service that delivers a comprehensive product experience and allows our customers to buy, sell, collateralize, and view their assets while they’re stored in a temperature-controlled facility that’s monitored 24/7.
See our help center article -> Sending cards to the Vault
Our vaulting services are free for all cards that are graded by supported companies and $5 for each unsupported graded card and ungraded (also known as Raw) cards. All vaulted cards receive digitization, storage, and insurance with no ongoing storage fees, and you can outtake your cards at any time.
Important: We have robust quality assurance, and no damaged or scratched slabs will be allowed on the platform. If received, these will be only available for storage.
See our help center article for more information -> Unsupported Assets
There are two ways to sell on Alt:
Fixed Price: A dedicated marketplace where you can buy and sell pre-authenticated cards. You have full say and can seamlessly determine your listing prices. Once vaulted, you can simply select a card, click ‘List on Alt,’ select ‘Sell at a fixed price,’ then enter your desired list price and select ‘List,’ then ‘Confirm listing.’
For all sales on our Fixed Price marketplace, including counteroffers and cards listed on eBay, the seller fee will be based on the final sale price of the card.
See the table below for our new fee structure:
See below for a walkthrough of two fee scenarios.
Liquid Auctions: We're delivering maximum value 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 is settled, the winning bidder will receive the card in their Vault immediately
- End-to-end consignment: No further actions are needed once a card is approved by Alt's experts. Immediate asset transfers to a buyer, similar to all other purchases on the platform.
- Seller's Commission: A buyer’s premium that is added to the final price and shared between Alt and the seller. Sellers will receive a commission based on the final price of each sale, as noted in the chart below:
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I sell a card that’s already in my Portfolio?
A: If your card is already vaulted, simply select a card, click ‘List on Alt,’ select ‘Sell at a fixed price,’ then enter your desired list price and select ‘List,’ then ‘Confirm listing.’
If your card is not yet vaulted, it cannot be sold on Alt. If you would like to sell on Alt, please log into your account and proceed to ship your cards to the Vault.
Can sold cards be returned by the buyer?
A: No. Because Alt is taking custody and verifying the legitimacy of the card, all sales are final.
How can I receive sales proceeds or withdraw from my account balance?
A: You can initiate a withdrawal by visiting the 'Banking & Transfers' page under account settings and clicking on ‘Withdraw'
Alt does not assert ownership rights over any assets deposited into the Vault. In the unlikely event of bankruptcy or other extraordinary circumstances, Alt will return all user assets to their respective owners. As the custodian, Alt further ensures the protection of these assets through the maintenance of an insurance policy, which covers Alt's Vault. This insurance policy provides coverage adequate to safeguard the vaulted assets of users up to the total aggregated market value of each asset.
