Customers are free to cash out any deposited amount remaining in their account and take possession of any cards in their portfolio at any time. However, we cannot process refunds of transactions made in the market.
Credit bonuses are awarded for various reasons which are described individually on the "My Account" page next to the amount of the bonus. All credit bonuses are interest free and can be used in the market like cash to add to a trader's buying power and earning potential for as long as they wish. All credit bonuses must be repaid at the time of the next withdrawal or request for possession of cards before the request is approved. Example: A trader requests a cash withdrawal of $500 and has $100 in credit bonuses. The $100 interest free credit is deducted from the funds and cleared on the account as the first step in the process. Then the trader is sent the remaining $400.
Cash Bonuses are awarded for various reasons which are described individually on the "My Account" page next to the amount of the bonus. Most cash bonuses have some type of time restriction on them which may or may not be listed in the description. When the time restriction is over the bonus is said to be "mature" and can be treated as deposited funds in the account. Please contact customer service to verify the maturity date of any cash bonuses listed in your account. If a withdrawal is processed before the maturity date of a cash bonus the bonus is lost.
$50 Free Trial Promotion
To qualify a user must be new to the site and verify their name, email, and phone. If no deposit is made within 6 months the account is closed and the contents become of the property of Jockbrokers LLC. If the account is dormant for more than 30 days and no deposit has been made the account is closed and the contents become the property of Jockbrokers LLC. If a deposit of $50 or more is made into the account in the first 6 months the free $50 matures (can be cashed out) 90 days after the deposit is made.
Deposit bonuses are offered from time to time and are applied as a percentage of the deposit made at the time of the promotion. Users who take advantage of the bonus are subject to the terms of the promotion. All non-mature deposit bonuses are lost if the user's account value drops below the original deposit bonus amount plus the original deposit at any time as the result of a cash out. This is not the case if an account balance is reduced through purchased or losses.
The minimum deposit at Jockbrokers.com is $50. This allows a trader to have at least the buying power to experience the market first hand but deposits under $200 are not recommended. If you do not have disposable funds to become a trader you should wait to invest until you do.
A trader may request a withdrawal of money at any time. We never restrict your the funds that were deposited by a trader not withstanding any transactions made in the market. Since Jockbrokers covers the fees and there is much labor that goes into account balance verification, fraud detection, and the processing of the withdraw itself not to mention fees, postage, and such, we do not process withdrawal requests that are less than $50 unless the account is being closed out. This also applies to request to take possession of cards. The minimum value is $50. Alternatively we offer to do these small requests for a $5 fee to cover postage, transfer fees, and labor costs.
Frequency of Withdrawals
We offer free withdrawal options for all traders up to 2 per calendar month. There is a $5 fee associated with the 3rd request and beyond within the same calendar month.
Accounts with no cards or cash in them may be deactivated at the discretion of Jockbrokers LLC.
Account Balance Verification
Before a cash out is processed the user's account balance is verified by hand and spreadsheet to determine that market transactions have been handled properly. Jockbrokers LLC will also test for market manipulation, suspect trading practices, electronic fraud, as well as any other possibly instances of fraud or manipulation by a user or inadvertent errors that might have effected the user's balance. If ANY fraud or manipulation is suspected the users balance may be held indefinitely by Jockbrokers LLC.
