Default Ebay bidder wins an auction with a COMC mailing address?

I have never seen this.

The order details say it is going to COMC.com Mailbox C/o (Member name)

Buyer has 1200 FB but I have never seen this before.

I know I have purchased things from Ebay in the past and the shipping has been from COMC.

Maybe he is going to grade it & flip it, and wants to save money on shipping.

Could make logical sense.

I believe COMC has a new feature called "The Mailbox". The buyer is going to either flip it or get it graded through COMC. Of course, double check...I will try to find the link.

I wonder if he will be requesting delivery of the item from COMC to him.

I will ask.

Interesting idea, I might look into it to avoid Canadian shipping costs.

It's a really good idea and will probably get more popular on their site .. My opinion of course . One of their best ideas in a while . & They seem to have been lacking in those lately

Do you ship internationally?

It's likely due to the member attempting to avoid those super-high registered/express mail rates when buying from the U.S.

Makes perfect sense, they pay U.S. rates and store the cards at COMC in a "collection" Then they can have them shipped to their International address from COMC in bulk and save a TON on S&H costs!

No I do not.

This is a great option for international buyers to buy from US only sellers like me.

Now we just have to wait for payment and see if confirmed shipping address is COMC. If not then we have an issue.
