Oregon sports card company PWCC sells to Fanatics

Lake Oswego sports card company PWCC Marketplace sold its business Monday to Fanatics Collectables, a rapidly growing sports memorabilia company based in New York.

“We acquired PWCC as a strategic, long-term decision for the business that will allow us to further enhance and support the broader collector ecosystem,” Fanatics Vice President AC Betts wrote in an email Tuesday. Betts wrote that buying PWCC “will give us the opportunity to further build and strengthen on the foundation that exists today and ultimately deliver a lot of value to our fans/collectors.”

The companies didn’t report terms of their deal.

PWCC’s 125 employees will remain with the business, according to Betts, who said “it’s business as usual” for the time being.

“It is critical that we take the time to properly evaluate the business, best practices and compliance,” Betts wrote. “Long-term health is vital for our business and the ecosystem at large, which is why we’re going to thoughtfully integrate the PWCC platform into Fanatics Collectibles.”

Founded in 1998, PWCC is among the most popular place for collectors to buy and sell trading cards. It also operates a vault in Oregon where clients store their collections.

PWCC promotes sports cards as akin to fine art – assets with an enthusiastic following and an opportunity to produce strong investment returns.

But its business has been plagued by allegations that cards sold on its site had been manipulated to increase their value, and it was kicked off eBay in 2001 amid accusations that people associated with PWCC engaged in “shill bidding” to drive up the price of cards.

Earlier this month, PWCC laid off 30 employees, about a fifth of its staff. Most of the layoffs were in Oregon.

Fanatics has licensing deals with all the major North American sports leagues. It bought the Topps

Visa and MasterCard agree to lower average credit card interchange fee below 1%

The government has announced new details of an agreement with Visa and MasterCard that will see them lower the amount that they charge retailers when a customer pays for a purchase with a credit card.

Known as so-called interchange fees, they have long irritated merchants by allowing the credit card company to keep a percentage of every sale, instead of a flat fee for each transaction.

On Thursday, the government announced a deal with the two card companies that will reduce interchange fees for in-store transactions to 0.95 per cent, on average.

That means on a $100 purchase, if a customer pays with a credit card, the retailer will get at least $99, where they previously would have kept as little as $97 in some cases.

A government release says on average, the deal will reduce the typical fee that a merchant pays by 27 per cent. 

The fee reductions are expected to save retailers about $1 billion over five years and “make credit card transactions fairer for small businesses, which have less bargaining power than larger merchants to negotiate lower rates,” the government said in a release.

Many other jurisdictions, including the European Union, the United Kingdom, Israel, Australia, China and Malaysia, have capped interchange fees at well under one per cent, but in Canada some cards can charge up to three per cent. Currently, the average interchange fee for a Canadian Visa credit card is 1.4 per cent, Visa says.

Merchants were forbidden from passing those fees on to consumers directly for years, but that all changed last fall when the credit giants agreed to settle a class action lawsuit over the matter, a deal that saw them agree to refund businesses hundreds of millions of dollars for what they charged in interchange fees over the years.

Hilton Honors Amex Business credit card review – The Points Guy

Editor’s note: This is a recurring post, regularly updated with new information and offers.

Hilton Honors American Express Business Card overview

The Hilton Honors American Express Business Card is one of the most valuable hotel business cards on the market. With mid-tier Hilton Gold elite status, it provides useful premium benefits at just a $95 annual fee (see rates and fees). If Hilton is your company’s hotel chain of choice, this card is a worthwhile addition to your wallet. Card rating*: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Am I Personally Responsible For My Business Credit Card?

Key Takeaways

  • Making a personal guarantee on a business credit card means you are personally liable to pay off the card, and the issuer can take your personal assets to make card payments if necessary.
  • There are business credit cards that don’t require a personal guarantee, but it’s more difficult to qualify for such cards.
  • In case you don’t make payments on a business credit card that you’ve personally guaranteed, your credit score could be impacted.

There are plenty of compelling reasons for a small-business owner to get a business credit card. These products offer unique rewards and perks designed specifically for small-business owners. However, before you apply for the card that looks like the best fit for you and your venture, you should understand what a personal guarantee is. This is a standard feature of business cards, and it would be better to learn — before you apply — that you, as an individual, are liable for any balances incurred for business expenses.

What is a personal guarantee on a business credit card?

A personal guarantee is a clause in a credit agreement that spells out your liability for the account. If you sign the document, you’ll form a contract with the credit issuer that you will pay the bill (out of your own assets). When searching for a business card, you’ll want to look for this clause in the fine print, or the business card’s terms and conditions.

For instance, for the Ink Business Preferred® Credit Card, the personal guarantee clause is listed in the Pricing & Terms section: “Individual and Company Liability: You understand that by responding to this offer you agree to be personally responsible, both individually and jointly with the Company, for payment of all balances incurred on all cards and accounts

Contractor in Toronto for Wolf Construction charged, hit with lawsuits

A Toronto area man is facing a number of criminal charges and civil lawsuits after he allegedly defrauded homeowners and failed to pay his workers while operating under an “alter ego” with at least two different legal names and as many as four contracting companies.

King City, Ont., resident Carmelo Scarola, is currently facing at least three criminal charges and two civil lawsuits in the GTA over a number of alleged fraud-related incidents in the last three years, court documents show.

In September, Scarola was arrested by York police for allegedly defrauding a Newmarket family, he’s entangled in two ongoing civil lawsuits regarding worker compensation, and Toronto police say he’s been named three times in fraud-related reports made to the service in the last two years. Court documents show he’s also facing at least one non-fraud-related criminal charge at Toronto’s Old City Hall.

Scarola may also operate under the name Gaetano, York Regional Police told CTV News Toronto – under which he’s believed to currently be facing six additional criminal charges and three additional lawsuits in the last decade.

Businesses associated with Scarola include Wolf Construction and Renovations Ltd. and the now-inactive Buonna Tile, government registries show. Court documents and a Better Business Bureau complaint filed against Scarola suggest ‘AR Tile and Marble’ and ‘AR Contracting and Tile’ have also been used.

CTV News Toronto has spoken to five alleged victims of Scarola, both homeowners and labourers. Due to safety concerns, they will be quoted anonymously. Collectively, Scarola is alleged to have defrauded or withheld wages totalling more than $100,000 from those interviewed.

“I believe [Scarola’s] project is designed to scam people,” a Greater Toronto Area labourer who alleges they’re owed more than $10,000 by the contractor told CTV News Toronto.

At the time of publication, Scarola has been released
