2) Can a person ship using any method? For example regional priority boxes?

3) If a person chooses the 4 week method at 20 cents per card and the 25 cents per card if there are condition issues are there any other possible fees they may charge? I am trying to get an idea of what the total cost might be.

Hi, Sports2882. Our ID guys determine whether or not a card merits a condition note. It's liklier for vintage stuff (pre-1970) because for more recent stuff if it's in bad shape and not an otherwise valuable card, we'll just send it back (without charging you). It's helpful if you indicate a rough guess of how many items will need notes, but it is not required and we'll do our own thorough check regardless.
The only other fee you might get charged is if you send cards in in toploaders / screwdowns / semirigids. Those are $0.05 per card to remove.

Most all of my cards are autographed or memorabilia and I guess my only gripe with the site is that as far as I know, you cant specifically search for only auto or jersey cards. This results in alot of sifting through junk base and inserts... Of course you can type in stuff like "Auto" and get results, but only if the word auto is in the card description... Which many times it is not. Has anybody found a way to accurately emit the base and inserts while doing a search? Has this concern previously been raised and if so, has a COMC rep responded to this concern?
This has been I think a lot of people's #1 feature request besides wantlists. We plan to roll out both by the end of the summer. =)

Also, I have sent info on some cards that need to be changed as they are listed wrong, and nothing has happened with them...on one card I have literally sent that it is listed wrong and why, well over 5 times...and nothing has happened with it. We are talking weeks here on it. This hasn't ever happened before in the past, usually things were taken care of rather quickly. Is this just part of the growing process, and maybe that part of the customer service is getting neglected a tad? Just a mild concern as it seems to have gotten a little lax lately, just in that area. Overall COMC is still incredible! Thanks
Hi, papercards. Not sure what's going on with price changes in your account. If you can get me an affected card's item number I can check our book price history on it and give you more info. Please email (attn: Jeremy). Unfortunately as great as our CS team is (and they are), they don't do corrections - our ID team does. The ID folks have been bombarded lately, enough so that we've doubled the size of the department since the beginning of the year and we're still hiring to keep up with our business growth. It's a good problem to have, but it's meant that corrections have been badly neglected. If you've got a short-list of items that are at the top of your list, please send them to me and I'll do what I can to get some eyes on them.
Of couse, and not to offend, but sometimes correction requests are submitted on cards that are actually listed correctly so that's possible too,

I even emailed screen shots of the specific cards to the account and still several are not corrected. It seems that every time I submit 30-40 then a couple will be corrected.
Soon I imagine we'll have a dedicated "Swag Dept".
