Escrow Policy

Service as an Escrow Agent

For Player Direct Transactions

When a buyer submits a request for a client's item that we do not currently have in our inventory, Beyond The Dugout acts as an escrow agent in completing the desired transaction.  Once the buyer's payment is received and verified, we will notify our client to ship the desired item to our office for certification.  Once certified, the item will be shipped to the buyer via Priority Insured mail with Delivery Confirmation.  As soon as we confirm with the USPS that the item has been delivered, the funds will be disbursed to our client.  Buyer agrees to pay a 10% premium to BTD for items acquired via a Player Direct Request. 

For Secondary-Market Transactions (on items orginating from our BTD Inventory)

When a prospective buyer inquires about purchasing an item previously purchased from our inventory, Beyond The Dugout will contact the current owner to determine if their is interest in re-selling the item.  If the current owner expresses interest in re-selling the item, with or without profit, BTD will work as the intermediary and escrow agent to complete the agreed-to transaction.  Once the new buyer's payment is received and verified, we will notify the original buyer/current owner to ship the desired item to our office for re-certification.  Once re-certified, the item will be shipped to the new buyer via Priority Insured mail with Delivery Confirmation.  As soon as we confirm with the USPS that the item has been delivered, the funds will be disbursed to the original purchaser.  Seller agrees to pay BTD a fee equal to the lesser of 20% of the profit made from the second transaction, or $50.

This policy is designed to insure all parties are satisfied and protected from risk in BTD-assisted transactions.
