thePit.com gives our account holders the option to choose the Minimum order
quantity when they place orders to buy or sell multiple cards.
For example, if you place a listing to buy 10 cards at $20ea.
and you leave the Minimum order quantity at 1, your listing maybe executed
anywhere from one to ten cards. If you choose 10 as the Minimum
order quantity, your Bid/Buy Offer Listing can only be executed for all 10 cards.
A marketable order is one that can be immediately executed. Your order is
considered marketable if it meets the price and quantity of an existing listing:
There are five possibilities when looking at the status column on your
Order Status Monitoring screen:
Purchase Trades: Upon purchasing an item, ThePit will first remove funds directly
from a users account. If there are not enough funds in the account, the system will then require
