certainly not my experience that there are many $10 cards offered at 2.50. plenty of $10 cards priced at $35 that get marked down to $7 that you might be able to get 10 for eventually.

but obviously i'm doing it wrong. maybe certain ports have a following? or this was a port purchase?

I've identified a half dozen cards I can buy for 5-6 bucks and flip for 15+...can't give out my secrets.

Since you won't give us your secrets, I guess I have to look at your $15 plus and see what they have in common

I just flipped a Soler auto for $8 profit in less than 24 hours. Probably helped the Cubs were active the past couple days

I've really increased my spending the last couple of days, but I've picked up some great cards that I can make a buck or two on. If they don't sell soon, I should be able to dump them off for a profit during the special listing promotion week at the end of the month.

I have been trying to flip but have had no success. What are you all buying that you can flip so easily.

Im only relatively new to this (6 months or so) but I would say PATIENCE!!!

right now, COMC is as bad for flipping as I have seen it, no ones blowing there port out, the sales that are 75% off were overpriced to start with and we have just had the black friday sales where there were flips a plenty! (I picked up almost 300 cards solely for flipping and I didnt even go as hard as I could have)

You need to be patient, if there's nothing to flip then just wait, there will be someone blowing out there port with 75% off fair market or already low prices soon enough.

I have almost $100 in my account from recent sales the last few days that I cant spend for the life of me, Ive even started to prospect a cpl of NBA players out of boredom who have some ridiculously priced low end auto's and are playing well this year. Ive also tried to buy some pc items but the sellers wont budge from $40-50 on a $20 card, they dont even counter... If any one has an older style Tony Parker auto (when his sig was nice) and wants to sell around ebay price, let me know, or a nice low-mid end Spurs uni D Rob...

Timing is massive too. Ive hit some blowout sales as soon as they've gone live and loaded up. Ive also been beaten out by others before the site refreshes and missed out on some huge deals. Being in an opposite time zone in a different hemisphere hurts and helps in that regard.

Thats a bit of my take anyway

Updated. It's been slow, but a little profit is better than no profit.

Reason for optimism: I can make profit $.20 every day for a year than I would profit $73 for that time frame.

This is true. I usually keep my prices low enough so someone else can flip again. My reasoning is the opportunity cost of cash in the pocket outweighs waiting months for a "bit" more.

Sorry for the noob question that has probably been asked a million times but where is the option to have the card put directly in your port rather than have it mailed to me?

When I go to check out I only see options to have it shipped.
