Does anyone know if they are only uploading stuff on Fridays now? It seemed like they uploaded all days of the week before but with the new process I've only seen Fridays.

I also thought that was a theme recently. My evidence is based on what is being loaded on the site by others as I haven't had very much of my recent submissions show up yet. It could also be that people wait until Friday/ the weekend to add cards when they have time? I know I add them ASAP. I drop everything and list them, haha.

Im a huge fan of COMC, I think they do an amazing job overall. My only issues with this new system is that it is so random. I have 1750 items in one batch and another 1200 on the way now. I had the first cards of my current batch hit friday(10cards) and it was a few cheap football rookies and a few cheap refractor baseball prospects. I know I sent tons of basketball and current baseball product. Anyone else getting just a very random upload?? Craig

As of right now it is 1 month of a 1500 card order and the only card that popped was the BGS 9.5 / 10 Baez Sterling, which would have been one day anyway.

Essentially we are paying 25 cents a card for eight week processing instead of 20 cents a card for the 10 week processing... for the nickel, I would have waited, and yep, I'm pretty annoyed that nothing has popped even though I sent some very hot inventory in.

Had 16 pop on Friday.

Think I am done sending things in until they fix the process or find a way to speed it up a bit. I have no issue being patient but this new process, at the same price as the faster processing before, doesn't seem worth it to me.

As someone stated earlier, I have absolutely no issue waiting the 8 weeks and having it done for .20 and saving the nickel. But waiting 7-8 weeks and getting charged .25 isn't worth it.

Also, Moe, perhaps you could elaborate, can someone explain how the cards being processed are chosen?

Do you guys go down a list and try to get a couple cards from every submission dated before X date? Are things in piles by importance? Just seems extremely random the amount of cards and types that are getting done and posted at any given time.

Why would they? Size of the submission doesn't matter - it has to due with their cycle for processing.

I'm still not seeing a four week average...it's been about two months since this started. Kind of frustrating that they promoted something and are not hitting the target.

Moe mentioned that with a larger order, it's broken up so it's easier to process.

Has anyone had cards pop on a day other than Friday? This is my first sub, but it seems that all the premium cards get put on Mon-Fri and the basic cards are regulated to Fri only. Was Fri the norm under the old system?

Had 28 cards from Series 1 go live late last night. Only 7 weeks later than it would have taken under the old system (Hot List).

Most all of them were blacks, camos, & golds and other numbered inserts.

I have. Here are my results so far, with they days they were processed:

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
3/14/2014 (6th Friday): 23 cards processsed, 405/409
3/20/2014 (7th Thursday): 48 cards processed, 453/490

Hit the 7-week mark today, here are the current totals:
Arrived 2/5
COMC "Completion": 82%
Active Live Cards: 453/~490 (~92% complete)

I think that 490 estimated total number is low, FWIW, might be closer to 520.

I don't think people would be complaining as much if COMC didn't advertise that they were aiming for keeping it around a 4 week average, just like before. It just doesn't seem like that's the case. Instead of new stuff going in after 2 weeks, and the rest going in after 5 or 6, it looks like 3-4 weeks for the newer stuff, and 7-8 weeks for the rest.

I get that we are paying for 2-8 week service, but I think the problem lies in that COMC did say what they did.

Did everyone else get the email from COMC today about the catalog data and price suggestions? What are your thoughts on how this will affect sales? I have about 5,000 cards I want to send in but am a little nervous about doing so with the transition away from Beckett values.
