How you make money

You can make money by buying and selling sports cards on the PWCC marketplace. If you can identify undervalued sports cards or sports cards that will increase in value over the long term, you can invest in them and earn a return by buying when the price is low and selling when it's high. Their fixed-price marketplace allows you to set a price you're willing to accept for your assets, while their auctions let you sell your assets to the highest bidder.

How PWCC makes money

PWCC makes money off of various auction and marketplace fees, storage fees, grading fees, and loan fees. Buyers pay a 20% buyer's premium, a portion of which goes to the seller and a portion of which goes to PWCC. Sellers don't pay a fee to list their item, but they may pay small additional fees for special items. Also, PWCC will keep a minimum of $2,000 of the sale price on Premier Auction lots. Vault usage is free for all items purchased on PWCC, otherwise they charge $3 to $25 per card depending on card type plus a 1% fulfillment fee on transfers. Grading fees are $20 per card. Finally, PWCC makes money on their loan program via a 1% origination fee and a 1% monthly interest charge.
