    Maybe you could add some more context? "Getting it" could mean "understanding it". Or just "Oh, thank you for getting my scarf from the shelf and bringing it to me." (Here's sour scarf, dear. - Oh, thank you for getting it.) – skymningen Nov 28 '13 at 8:45
  • In the absence of further context from OP, this looks like a duplicate of get = understand {a joke, an explanation, etc.} – FumbleFingers Reinstate Monica Nov 28 '13 at 18:30

Getting it is basically get, with a noun (it or other things). Get can mean receive, acquire, understand, etc.

So, thank you for getting it could mean thank you for understanding, et cetera., depending on the context.
