When your item sells, you will receive 90% of the selling price within 2 business days of the sale date (oversized and/or heavy items receive an 85% payout). You may elect to have your payment 1) mailed to you by check, 2) paid to you by check at our store, or 3) held 'on account' at Craigs Mart and used by you to purchase other items on display.

6. What happens if my item doesn't sell within the 45-day display period?

You control the next step! If your item hasn't sold within 45 days, we may recommend that you lower the price and display the item for an additional 30 days at no risk to you (no additional display fee paid). If your item sells during the second display period, you will receive 80% of the selling price. Based on our extensive market knowledge, we can assist you in determining a value for your item that should result in a sale. However, since market dynamics are constantly changing, we can never guarantee that your item will be sold.
