Market Loss Policy
Once you have placed your order and received a confirmation number, your price is locked in and your transaction may no longer be cancelled - only off set by current market values. Any difference between the price you bought and our current asking price is your responsibility, as well as the $35 cancellation fee. Any market gain that comes from a cancellation is PRTs to keep.
This means if you pay $1200 for a coin and want to cancel your order, and the current value is $1100, then you would receive $1100 back and have to pay the $35 cancellation fee as well as the $100 difference in coin value. This amount will be deducted by PRT from any refund sent or charged to the credit card which held the order.
For items purchased by PRT, estimates may be given verbally, but they are estimates only. We do not lock in a price until we receive item/s. Once we examine the item/s and give you a purchase confirmation order, your price has been locked in and your transaction may no longer be canceled - only off set by current market values. If you cancel your order, any difference between the purchase price and current market values is your responsibility. Again, there is a $35 cancellation fee. Any market gain from the cancellation is PRTs to keep.
