Submitting to Alt's Liquid Auctions is easy. After you ship the items to us or submit cards already in your Alt Vault, we do the work to manage the listing and auction process, as well as issue payment instantly when the auction closes. On top of that, approved auction submissions are eligible for a 72% cash advance at no charge. This cash advance will be paid upon submission approval for vaulted items, and upon item receipt for unvaulted items.
Frequently Asked Questions
What items are eligible for submission?
Submitted cards must be investment-grade. All submissions undergo a review process by the Alt team prior to being accepted.
How does the cash advance work?
After an item has been approved, we will offer a cash advance of 72% of the card's market value, determined using Alt Value and expert review. Alt assumes all the risk here, which means if your item sells above the agreed upon market price, you get the difference minus fees, but if your item sells for less you get to keep your 72% advance. The cash advance will be issued as a credit to your Alt account balance.
If an item does not sell what happens?
If an item does not receive any bids in an auction and you received a cash advance prior to the auction starting, Alt will take ownership of the item after the auction ends. If an item does not receive any bids in an auction and you did not receive a cash advance prior to the auction starting, the item will be returned to you at no cost.
How far in advance of an auction must cards be submitted for approval?
Items must be submitted for approval at least one week in advance of an auction.
Do items need to be vaulted to be listed in auction?

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

More information on sending cards to the Vault can be found here.
