Get or Got? I'm confused in some cases, they aren't matter to use simple or past tense. It's all about the people like to use them. Like:

Go pick up your shirt, got it?
Wait a minute.... ya, got it!

Why no get?

In your examples, “got it” is not the simple past tense. To form a question in the simple past, we would say “did you get it?” Even if we drop the “did you,” it’s still “get it?” in the past tense (“did” is understood). In your example, “got it” is short for “have you got it?” This is simply a common idiomatic expression with a (present tense) meaning similar to “do you have it?” Alternatively, this could be considered a form of the present perfect. We use it when there’s a connection between the past and present. Your friend has already understood (past), so now he is going to go (present / future) pick up his shirt.

This is just slang. In this case "got it? ---got it!" only means "do you understand? -- yes I understand"

You think you've got it
Oh, you think you've got it
But got it just don't get it when there's nothin' at all

You normally use "got it" at the end of a sentence when you are reprimanding someone.

Example: Go pick up your shirt, got it? It is an angry way of speaking to someone. Do not use "got it" when you are speaking to someone in a friendly or respectful manner as you will sound rude.

You normally use "get it" at the end of a sentence when you want to be more friendly or respectful. 

Example: When you are talking with someone and you want to politely check if they understood what you said. You can ask: "Did you get it?"
