    Sorry, yeah,

    Go to the link and click "View all fees and discounts" at the bottom of the first section.

    Once that expands, review the pricing and click "Apply now" under the Volume Discounts section.

    Thought that was impossible? Guess they finally realized they were missing out in some money. It's been what like 6 months since the invoked it?

    $175,000 per month now :)

    The only time I exceeded my previous cap of 100K I found out when I went to offer a second chance offer for a $12 pocket square and it wouldn't let me. So I said I needed another $75,000 for embarrassing me.

    Bummer - I was DENIED. Need $3k in sales per month for 3 months (I assume that's the last 3 months consecutively). Thanks for the heads-up, tho - will definitely re-apply if my game heats up.

    Application Denied
    We're sorry, your application for Merchant Rate pricing has been denied because your payment volume in the previous calendar month has been less than $3,000.00 USD per month. Please re-apply for Merchant Rate pricing once your payment volume has averaged $3,000.00 USD per month for three months.

    Hmm, since it says merchant, I assume it's for the business accounts, though it was very easy to switch it to a business account IIRC.

    Re: grailed...it's sort of buggy. Signed up this morning, listed 5 things. I get messages/offers on the site that sometimes show up immediately in my email, and sometimes not at all (or, hours later they're not in my email yet). Also listed an item, checked an hour or so later and it wasn't on the site so I re-listed it, then 4 hours later the first listing appeared so I had to delete it.
    I've gotten a couple offers on items, which I have accepted, but no one has paid yet.
    I do like that it's free, and really simple/clean - only like 6 boxes to fill in plus a description.
    Can't hurt to join & list stuff, so I'll see how it goes.

    What were you maxed out at before? I have never reached a limit.
