There are no account set-up or listing fees on the Playy.World Platform. Playy.World only charges a small fee if you have a successful sale of your listed items. Playy.World will deposit the due amount earned from your sales, after deducting our small fee. You can withdraw from your Playy.World balance into your bank account, by requesting for a disbursement. Your bank may impose a fee on the disbursement and if so, this amount will be deducted from your disbursement amount. Playy.World recommends that you accumulate your sales proceeds before requesting a disbursement to your bank account, to reduce the amount of fees paid to your bank.

All orders processed through our payment system also incur a payment processing fee. It is our Playy.World’s ambition to offer the widest and most flexible payment options to the buyer, at the lowest cost. In certain countries and payment mode, the payment processing may be free of charge, like PayNow in Singapore (till end 2020). Playy.World partners with global payment gateway leaders to provide the most cost-effective payment options to our users around the world.

The credit/debit payment processing fee ranges from 2% to 3.5% + $0.50, depending on the country and payment gateway option. If a full refund is initiated by the seller then $0.50 of this fee is non-refundable.

The commission fee for each individual product is capped at $50, regardless of product price. This fee cap is for the commission fee only, and the payment processing fee will still be collected as usual. Example: If you sell two Black Lotus cards, each for $5,000, each would incur a $50 commission fee.

Note: Playy.World only charges a small fee based on the Product Amount, unlike other platform that charges the Order Total (product amount + shipping cost). Playy.World also do not charge fees on taxes. However, credit card and PayPal do charge a payment processing fee, that may include taxes for certain countries.
