I do, and it's been great to me. Gave me a place to unload around 1200 inserts/rookies and i've turned that into roughly $700 with another 550 cards left to sell!

Just a question for anyone that uses COMC. I have been interested in using it but just haven't been sure in what to send in. What do you guys send in that sell, inserts, rookies, etc. I don't know. any info?

Do your research. Numbered inserts, hot rookies are probably the best stuff. Anything between 1-5 in SV is the best. I have sent in around 4,000 cards so far since September (with 1500 more processing) and have grossed (before fees and stuff) 3,400 dollars since then. Have made 2 400 dollar cash deposits to my PayPal account, and about to do another 400 dollar one tomorrow.

Its a great site for buying and selling. I also use it all the time when I'm documenting my PC so I know what I have. Also, when you're sending stuff in make sure the site doesn't already have 100+ of that card caude it will probably sit for a long time.

I made this quick comparison of ebay vs comc on 1/1/13. I never went back to get all the fine details, but you can see a lot of large differences:

http://www.blowoutcards.com/forums/e...c-vs-ebay.html

also here are my current stats since 2008
Items in Inventory 348
Total Book Value $3,116.75
Items w/o Book Price 45
Total Asking Price $3,867.51
Items w/o Asking Price 0
Items Not for Sale 0
Items Ready to Ship 0
Total Sales $9,462.23
Items Sold 5,740
Items Purchased 1,232
Items Added to the Site 5,304


and just for the sake of it, I ran a 7 day promo recently and sold 86 cards for $158
the promo before that was only 4 days and I sold 24 cards for $241

Lifetime sales stats:
Year Total Sales # Sold
2013 $646.73 142
2012 $2,820.21 801
2011 $2,664.40 2,320
2010 $1,494.08 1,011
2009 $1,445.29 1,187
2008 $403.59 279

everyone's experience will be different. I have about 500 more cards that are going to be posted over the next few days to weeks.

I may just do 50 to start, can I just send them in a small flat rate box insured? I know we can't send with topladers. Anymore advice?

They have a $20 off coupon for first time sellers. Don't forget to ask for this before sending your cards. It will give you the first 80 cards listed free (standard processing).

Good luck with COMC

email them. It would've been better to have done it before you shipped but they're a good bunch. Definitely worth asking anyway.


Edit: I was just on COMC. I don't use twitter but they posted this...

25 minutes ago @25whitney when you send them in, add a note you're a 1st time seller so you'll get the $20 "1st time seller" processing discount. Thanks!

Just tell 'em you're whitney!

This is what I did. Sent in a stack of 50 inserts/rc's/numbered cards and put a note on the submittal form about the free first time thing. When they added my cards they didnt add a fee, which was awesome. I just sent in another batch of 10 for the one week processing (already sold 5 of those) and have another stack of 50 with the one month process. It really is awesome for all those $1 cards you dont wanna put on eBay. So far I have made $20 and thats with the fees they charged for my 2nd and 3rd submittals. And the best part is, they are located in Washington, so they receive my cards the day after I send them. Also, my first batch was in a flat rate box and my other 2 were in mailing envelopes and there were no issues with either.

After reviewing comc I'm interested in selling some cards on the site. It seems as if the fee's are almost the same overall to ebay's or am I not interpreting it correctly?

they take 20% when cashing out?
normal fee per card per month for listing?

Thanks for the help

Yes to the 20%.
$0.01 per card per month. Cards listed for $0.75 or under are exempt.
