Something COMC might consider doing, to help new sellers get comfortable with the site, is to go ahead and process 4-5 cards from the sellers submission when they send out the "received your cards" notification. That way new sellers get a chance to work with the site and the inventory system a little while they wait for the rest of their inventory to be processed. But only for the first batch each seller sends in, not for every submitted batch. It could be a sort of "welcome to the site, here's how it works" with practical application.

Great idea........I would even go further and say that they should just bump new sellers up to express processing on their first batch, for the price of standard. A new seller can only use this price one 1 batch, so if the send in 2000 cards, the first 500 would be the express batch and the other 1500 would end up being standard batches. Then the sellers don't have to wait 8 weeks to find out they like the service and decide to send in more cards. They would most likely send in more cards even before the other standard batches are processed.

Only bought 60 cards this month. looking to buy a few more before shipping it out.

Items in Inventory 64 (coulda,woulda,shoulda be 400+)
Total Book Value $2,127.00 (average bv30+).

buying down about 400 cards a month. They should cap the shipping. Would help lower end card sales 100000%.

Fun but could be even more fun on comc. CAP THE SHIPPING AT $50-75. Boost sales so the sellers can flip more cards!

Default Thanks everyone!

Thanks everyone for buying from me since March.

Cococards bought my 1959 Felipe Alou RC card to put my sales over $1,000. It took almost eight months, but am very happy with the site. Looking at my stats, I think I'm a bigger buyer than seller as I've bought twice as many cards than I have sold.

Of my 2800 cards, 1100 plus are priced at 25 cents or lower.


General Account Info
Items in Inventory 2,826
Total Book Value $10,120.25
Items w/o Book Price 6
Total Asking Price $3,342.53
Items w/o Asking Price 1
Items Not for Sale 202
Items Ready to Ship 14
Total Sales $1,007.38
Items Sold 894
Items Purchased 1,860
Items Added to the Site 2,098

I had over $1000 in sales again for the 8th straight month, and I've only been a member for 8 months.

Thank you to everyone that has purchased from me, and thank you to everyone that just stopped by to look. I appreciate every one of you.

Last year there were some very nice promos (at least for buyers) centered around "Black Friday", so perhaps that will happen again this year. If that's the case though, it will probably be later into the month before they are announced.

In selling fees, or is that all you spent buying cards on Ebay?

November specials have been added...something like Express shipping at .25/card for all hockey, basketball, and 2009 Football.

Also, building suspense for Black Friday weekend. They are not going to release details until that week.

Great special! I'm glad I procrastinated shipping a new batch to them.

Getting ready to send in my first batch and have a pricing question. I see Standard processing costs $1 for graded cards. What about other slabbed cards such as ITG Ultimate Mem. or similar?

Anything that will remain in a case of any kind from slabs to top loaders will cost you $1.

I hope this answers your question, but if not, ask again. I'll help you if I can.

As with a lot of sites, I'm still learning that if you can figure out how to best make use of the system, you can actually get some pretty good deals. Just like you should always attempt to consolidate orders to as few sellers as possible on Sportlots to minimize shipping, COMC's feature of allowing you to hold your cards until you want to ship is REALLY nice. I had $2.45 left in my account after I sent in my first batch to process and last night managed to pick up 7 cards I needed for my Dave Winfield & Roberto Kelly collections, all at 65-85% off BV. Now I can just pile that up until I want to ship and save a bundle on those $3 shipping fees. I really wish I had understood that when I first started buying on the site.

One feature I would like to see added is to be able to search by Book Value. For instance, I could search Highest Percent Off of cards with a Book Value of $10.00.
