Well, after 1 card yesterday, they did 103 today.

Updated:
Arrived 2/5
COMC "Completion": 60%
Active Live Cards: 358/~490 (~73% complete)



I track most of my inventory anyway (I love stats) so when I'm sending in to COMC, I just check off a "Sent to COMC" box and it's done. There were a "hot" few base cards I threw in at the last minute but everything else is accounted for.

Do you get an email notification when your submitted cards are ready to be priced or is it best to just keep checking your dashboard? Thanks

I sent in a submission of about 500 cards:

Arrived 2/10

2/28: 292/~500 processed
3/7: Second batch of 124 items processed, 416/~500 now done.

Still waiting on the rest. There does not seem to be any rhyme or reason to which cards were done first. The only thing I definitely noticed is that the more valuable cards came in the second batch and the most valuable one (Tom Seaver auto /9) still hasn't been processed.

My first under the new process arrived 2/19, still 0/575 today on March 9th.....slightly frustrating considering I had mostly newer stuff in this batch.

Also had a 680 card batch arrive there on 3/7, so we will see how that one goes also.

The newest stuff I had was 2013 Topps Chrome baseball and none of that has been processed.

Unfortunately I never got to experience the original processing but here's my stats under the new ways so far

Approximately 303 cards arrived to comc on 2/15 and so far 2 cards both of which were completely random and definitely not any of the hotter cards I sent went live

And it says it's at 26 percent thru, if that's the pace it takes then it's been 4 weeks to get a quarter of the way thru which means I'll be waiting another 3 months for my batch to fully be up. I admit I'm quite disappointed so far even with the 2 cards that went live selling within a couple days I'm not sure if I'll send in the second batch I had ready or not

What I'm seeing is that your batch gets into the 20-30% range and then there is a big jump all of a sudden that happens that gets you into the 60-80% range. However, as has been stated previously, the percentages mean very little.

That's weird that only two cards would populate...glad they sold for you!

Another update on mine:

Sub 1 - Last 9 cards popped yesterday.
Arrived 1/21 (50 Days - 7 weeks, 1 day)
Completion: Done
Actual Live Cards: 240/240 (100%)

Sub 2 - 4 more cards popped yesterday.
Arrived 1/27 (44 Days)
Completion: 75%
Actual Live Cards: 83/110 (75.4%)

Sub 3
Arrived 2/7 (33 Days)
Completion: 86%
Actual Live Cards: 207/243 (85.1%)

Sub 4
Arrived 2/20 (20 Days)
Completion: 20%
Actual Live Cards: 0/166 (0%)

Two new submissions that I will add at some point to keep track as well.

They need to step this up quite a bit. If the goal is four weeks as they stated - they are missing the mark. They are 0-3 on my submissions that have passed the four week mark and my fourth submission hits that point a week from today with nothing to show for it. I'm on board with the reason behind the change to the submission process, but the new processing is really frustrating to me. I used to pay .25 per card for one month processing...and I usually took the option of paying .35 for two week processing.

Seems very random. I have cards from the same sets popping up days or weeks apart

The randomness is due to their new processing method - if you read how they do it, it should help you understand why weird things get processed at different times.

I was okay with the new processing, because I think the impression we were given was that we wouldn't be seeing stuff taking this long to process (four week average). I'm beginning to dislike the basic processing as it works right now. Hoping that COMC can get things moving a little quicker on stuff - especially with the Spring Cleaning Promotions coming up. As a seller, I want my inventory listed on the site and not sitting in a crate waiting for someone to "get to it" sometime. I used to pay .35 to get my stuff on in two weeks - the sooner it was listed, the sooner I would make money on it.

Quoted from the COMC blog:

"Every week we will process items from the current year and items that are in season, as well as other items that tend to be hot. Items that are out of season and that might not be super hot will only be processed every two to three weeks."

I'm wondering how this is working, because the stuff I would consider as "this year", "in season", and "hot" is not getting through on a weekly basis. I would also expect that if the other items are being processed every 2-3 weeks, I would be seeing more things populate.

As an example, I have a batch that arrived 2/20 to COMC. That is now 21 days ago. No cards have populated from this batch. If memory serves, it contains a significant number of 2014 Topps products and should be 90-95% baseball. Based on the description above, wouldn't you think something from this group would have popped by now.

Update:
Arrived 2/5
COMC "Completion": 71%
Active Live Cards: 382/~490 (~78% complete)



Here's the breakdown:
2/5/2014 (0th Wednesday): Cards arrived at COMC for basic processing
2/28/2014 (4th Friday): 254 cards processed, 254/490
3/5/2014 (4th Wednesday): 1 card processed, 255/490
3/7/2014 (5th Friday): 103 cards processed, 358/490
3/7/2014 (5th Friday): 11 cards processed, 369/490
3/13/2014 (6th Thursday): 13 cards processed, 382/490

Most of my 2014 Topps S1 were in the first batch, but not all of them. The first batch also included random hockey, some 2012 and 2013 Baseball.

Had about 40 cards processed within 2 weeks. Three weeks later, I still have another 350 to go.....

I am not a fan but I know COMC will work the kinks out.

I personally don't like the new processing and did not like it from jump. I am in no hurry would just rather have all my cards processed at once even if it took 6-7 weeks. I have sent in 8 batches since the change and a small % have been processed...They will fix this issue they always do....Not a big deal I guess.

None yet today...but I've had all my processings happen at random times though so I kind of just take them as they come. I did make an overnight sale though - I love waking up to the COMC nightly update because that means someone bought my things! lol

I am thinking over the next 2 days COMC is going to be making a push on processing to get more cards available for the start of the Spring Cleaning Cleaning Promotion.

Granted my submission won't be done for a long time yet, this promotion will hopefully clear up some room in their warehouse and get a rush on the processing started.

Here is the stats for my most recent submission.

10 % 450 4/30/2014 4/30/2014

Actual Cards Live- 0

My first experience with the new processing was very positive. I sent a batch of 703 cards using the Basic service that arrived on January 16th. On February 1st, 701 of those cards went live. I had only submitted once in the old system and it took until the "Due Date" to be processed, so I was happy to have nearly my entire submission up in a little over 2 weeks.

I've sent in a couple more submissions which just arrived in the past week. I was a little disappointed to learn after I sent them in that the Spring Cleaning Sales are happening this month, because I will most likely miss them. I've found these site-wide sales to be great for business.

The only hard part of this new system is keeping track of how many cards are actually posted.
