Fees (Effective 1 May 2016)
There are NO FEES for trading cards *within* your Pit account. Fees are assessed when you sell cards for us for subsequent delivery (5% on such "Sale Not In Account" transactions) and when you convert your Pit Trade Credits into a Cash Withdrawal (10% fee).
Card Deposit Fee: 10 cents per card (minimum of $1 per package). This fee defrays the costs of inspecting each card. SNIA fulfillment deposits (i.e. deposits to settle sales) are FREE.
In very limited instances, thePit.com may charge the customer credit card on
file to cover penalty fines as indicated below.
If you sell a card that is not in your account at the time of your Sale Trade
you must send your card(s) to thePit.com to settle
the Sale Trade within 2-3 business days. No short selling is allowed, as you cannot buy from
thePit.com to fulfill your obligation. If the card is not sent before
the alloted time stated above, a penalty of up to $25 AND 5% of the sell price at the time of execution and
other possible fees will be charged to your credit card on file.
Additionally, thePit.com reserves the right to freeze any account from further
trading if there are unsettled sale trades for more than five days.
If you submit a check that bounces, a $25 penalty will be charged to the credit
card on file.
Ordinarily, customers are not charged sales taxes as a result of purchasing
cards on thePit.com.
However, customers that request delivery and ship "Deal of the Week" cards (only)
from their accounts with thePit.com to a N.Y. State address will be charged sales
tax on the total amount of the order (including shipping and handling charges),
based on the local sales tax rate where the shipment is delivered and the
customer's average cost basis for the cards being shipped. If the customer has
a N.Y. State Resale Certificate on file with thePit.com, then the tax charge will automatically be reversed.
To protect our customers, thePit.com will only ship cards to the billing address for the credit card on file. Customers are responsible for all associated shipping, handling, and insurance fees. The system will indicate how much the shipping fees will be at the time a shipping request is processed and will not allow such request to be processed if the account balance is insufficient to cover the shipping fees.
thePit.com offers two shipping options; the shipping options and applicable rates are listed below along with the Insurance rate.
