Posted a response in another similar COMC thread, but thought I'd add my 2 cents as this thread is more current.

I only sell low-end so the sales dollars will never be comparable to the big hitters. I tend to look at how many cards are selling (implies site traffic in my simple mind) and have noticed an upward trend over the past 2 months.

2014 figures
Port size - 14,224 cards
Avg sales - $178.10 / mo. ($186.68 thus far in June)
Avg fees - $ 7.08 / mo.
Avg sold - 252 cards / mo. (280 thus far in June)

Personally, May and June sales have rebounded following a significant dip in April.

I'm at about 70% of what I normally average - it's not really steady like it was in the past, seems to be up and down as far as daily sales go.

THis is my 20th month of COMC sales.

April 2014 was the lowest month: 20/20
May 2014: 14/20

Currently June is at 19/20, but hopefully another 10 days of sales can get me to about the 15/20 range.

I have noticed more sales also , but for lower dollar amounts.

Coincidence or not, June 2013 was also one of my lower months: 16/20

getting fresh cards in your port helps for sure!
Your prices look good as well.

Thanks - running a pretty good sale right now to try and trim the port down. I like to keep it around 2,000 and with some of my batches getting done lately my sales haven't kept up with the inflow. Would like to sell 100 cards today and am already halfway there.

Looking for Andre Dawson Serial numbered cards that are his jersey number - either #8 or #10. So looking for cards like 8/8 or 08/99 or 10/250.

Seriously? Whoa. That's incredible.

To put that in perspective, ddearing was once the largest seller in the history of COMC. He once held a sale that was so massive, it crashed COMC's servers several times and literally changed the way the site operated.

A lot of those are from port sales - I'm actually making a penny or two on most. There are a small percentage of cards today that I lost up to .05 on, but it all comes out in the wash. I've sold quite a few cards for a pretty nice profit as well.

Bumping this up to see how it ended for everyone (still around 10 hours of sales to go) - I beat my May sales in both dollar value and number of cards sold. I did run two sales this month at around 30% off an one last month for 30% off.

Currently at: 519 Cards Sold for $797.00 - should break my $800.00 per month goal.
