I chose option 1. It's simple and to the point. It's catchy too because it underlies the feeling of a partnership between the seller and the website.

I agree that option one is catchy, but I like option 2 because it shows the advantages of COMC. I really hate Ebays fees!!!!!

One of the things I've always loved about COMC are the superzoom scans (both front and back of EVERY card).

You know EXACTLY what you're buying, condition of the card, etc, whereas on eBay that's not always the case.

Those are both good an both highlight different aspects of COMC that are big pluses over the competition.


Going to go with the second one just because it highlights the positives for both seller and buyer.

Agree.

I'd add smaller buyer base. I'm eBay all the way baby! Nothing against COMC but eBay still rules!

I voted A but wonder if it would work better reversed:

You do the deals, We do the Work.

Number 2 is worded badly so I have no doubt most will say 1


I mean..."More fun" is juvenile for trying to get adults to utilize your service to sell cards.
It's like Ricky bobby made it up.
Now, if someone i know made that up, I take it all back as not too hurt feelings :P

Both have their place. I personally use both depending on the card value and turnaround time I want to sell.
