waste of your time and everyone elses - "Everyone will receive a package regardless if you hit or not. If you do not hit it will be a base card of my choosing from a random set"

why not just charge those who get lucky and hit a card in the break supply and shipping?

seems like a waste of time and money to be honest.

I don't want nearly 300 paid items sitting in my PayPal without any shipping/tracking. If the idea of a group break is against policy then why make it obvious to them, you know what I'm saying.

Every member who joins is paying $2 for shipping regardless of how many spots they take thanks to the adjusted price of additional slots. If that $2 is what is turning you away from the break then so be it. I will not be risking my PayPal.

If you don't like the format then don't join. There seems to be plenty of early interest

Save yourself a ton of aggravation Bookyyyyyy and shut this break down. There are way too many members here who cannot stand the thought of someone making decent money doing breaks, especially on easy ones to sort, so steer clear of player drafts for ultra high end products . Create a name for yourself here doing team breaks for high end and player drafts of big labor products, like Bowman with Chrome. Once you have a group of people who trust you then you can charge a fair price for your work elsewhere, free from the rules of Blowout. It would be completely awesome to be able to make decent money breaking boxes but it will not happen here unless you love the idea of sorting and shipping thousands of base cards every week.

Ignore the naysayers and run your break the way you want....people seem to be negative a lot on these forums which overrides the good members. Break on!

I'm just saying there needs to be some common sense and reasonable risk/reward. Paying $4.00 out of a $10.00 slot for shipping/supplies is ridiculous. I have no problem with someone making a couple hundred on a break, but to throw 40% of a slot price away is crazy.

most likely people aren't going to hit anything with that 2nd, third, fourth whatever slot, so the base card you are shipping with their first slot (which they paid shipping for) is costing them $2.25 to ship...doubt the extra base card is adding much weight to the first package. So basically, you end up profiting $2.25 on each spot after the first one...so if everyone bought 2 slots, thats 160 people or so...profit $0.75 on the first slot (very acceptable), but $2.25 on the 2nd slot x 160 people = $360

But anyway, regardless, good luck on your break, hope you pull a monster out of it
Missed this one earlier.

Price of an additional slot was adjusted to fix this concern.

I don't know how else to spell this out

$5.66 is the base cost + $2 for shipping (a necessary cost) + supplies ($1 another necessary cost + PayPal Fee ($0.56 another necessary cost)

That all equals $9.25. Please show me where the extra $0.75 is 40% of the slot cost.
I don't think they are too worried about the first slot, its the additional slots, why Is it not like $6 or 6.50 max for added slots. no extra shipping materials are needed, or shipping fees. all it is is $5.66 + added paypal percentage, and your covered.

and yes you lowered it, but it still SEEMS highly inflated.

Again AXE trying to be as fair as possible with this. Appreciate the input and I will again lower the cost of additional slots to $7.00 per additional. A $3 break for each addition seems to be fair, eliminating the $2 shipping and $1 supplies cost that seems to be the cause of everyone complaining.

Thank you for saying it in a more direct, less rude manner.

OP is up to date.

We have been active for roughly 24 hours and have already filled 63 spots. I'd say that's a solid start
