*** NEW SOFTWARE IMPLEMENTATION SATURDAY 10/15 *** SUSPENSION OF TRADING *** READ DETAILS HERE ***

*** PIT TRADING WILL BE SUSPENDED ON FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14th AT 11:59PM (Pacific Time) TO PREPARE FOR CONVERSION TO NEW SOFTWARE. DURING THE CONVERSION YOU MAY NOT HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR ACCOUNT AND YOUR HOLDINGS FOR A DAY OR TWO. PLEASE DO NOT PLACE TRADES AFTER 11:59PM PT FRIDAY UNTIL NOTIFIED IN THIS SPACE (OR VIA TWITTER) THAT THE NEW SITE IS READY FOR TRADING. ***

Our new website, scheduled to launch Monday, October 17th, builds on the strengths of our existing site while adding new elements that we believe will make trading on thePit easier, more useful and more fun. Most of the new site will look familiar to veteran users; here are some features that will change:

** FEE-FREE TRADING: the new Pit will apply neither Buy nor Sell commissions to trading within the site. A fee of 10% will be applied to CashOut requests, and a fee of 5% is applied to SNIA ("Sale Not In Account") trades in which the item is delivered to thePit *after* sale execution. Customers with cash balances at the time of conversion will be given an option to withdraw that money fee-free.

** SEARCH BY IMAGES: The old Pit offered search results as descriptive lines of text, but the new Pit will provide images so that traders can quickly scan the options.

** MORE FLEXIBLE SEARCH: Using the new "Advanced Search Filters", site users can scan the thousands of items on thePit by setting ranges for year and grade. Searching by team will be enabled in coming months.

** ENTER MULTIPLE TRADES FROM PORTFOLIO SCREEN: ThePit’s “Holdings and Balances” page has always shown users what they own, and what the current Buy/Sell quotes are for those items. With the new site, users will be able to input and view their own Bid and Ask prices directly from this page, making trading faster and easier.

** EMAIL TRADE NOTIFICATIONS: This feature, suspended in recent years by changes in external security systems, will be restored to keep traders more up-to-date with their Pit activity.

** AUTOMATIC CREDIT-CARD FUNDING: Pit traders will once again be able to set single or multiple bids to buy cards backed only by their credit card as opposed to needing funds in their Pit account.

***********************************************

As with any major software upgrade, there will be issues and “bugs” in the implementation of thePit’s new system. We have worked with our software developer for many months to deliver a quality upgrade to the existing site, and we ask that you help us by reporting any problems to us by email (customer.service@thepit.com) or by calling our main number (805-485-5700). We are also happy to guide you through the new site over the phone, or to answer specific questions by email or Twitter (@thePitCards). Thanks for your patience and understanding as we work through the issues to improve your sports card trading experience on thePit.
