I am curious, has anyone bought or sold cards using COMC?

Thanks

It's more like a card exchange, you build up credits when you sell, although you can also sell out right. I think the main difference is that you have to send your cards to COMC and they charge you to list them and take care of the sale.

I have never used it, but it seems like a good idea if the customer service is any good and you don't mind paying fees upfront and sending them your cards. Of course the majority of the listings are for sports cards, so for what I collect now I don't see me getting involved.

There is a nice article about COMC on Cardboard Connection written by Ryan Cracknell that explains it better, if anyone is interested.

I've bought cards on COMC before and would do so again.

The gist of COMC is that it's a consignment site. As a buyer, the big benefit is that all cards are stored and shipped by COMC so you are only paying one shipping fee per shipment.

It can be very handy for filling sets I've found, especially for sets.

They sell through Ebay and Amazon. Some of the prices are astronomical but a lot of them are reasonable with some real bargains. They charge $3.99 for the first card and 25 cents for every card after that so you need to factor that in to your selection. I have bought some cards from them and they have always been in very nice shape.

I have not looked too closely into this but every COMC auction i have seen on ebay just has crazy high postage to the UK so i don't bother.

I have bought from them on eBay, and you can find some decent prices if you look around. Postage costs are a little high, but the cards have been in excellent shape and I've had no problems.

I tried to purchase but shipping to the UK was crippling - something like $64 for 10 cards. Needless to say I declined.....

If you buy on COMC directly www.comc.com (after purchasing store credit) you can request shipment at any time, after buying once or several times over months.
$4.99 flat fee shipping Internationally Big Grin
It is slow, but at that price i ain't complaining.

If you don't wish to buy store credit (which is refundable in some circumstances), you can say find several cards you want and check out, still flat fee shipping.

I've had several orders, no complaints, as another poster mentioned it's great for low end set building.

Yes there is alot of Sports but the Non Sports are growing. I've found it ideal for Game of Thrones as an example.

It is so expensive for the UK on eBay because the ship via Global Shipping Programme. Just cut out the middleman and purchase on COMC direct.

Definatly worth looking into. I just looked at ebay auctions which were being shipped through COMC and they were charging £16 to post a £1 promo card.

That's because COMC use eBays GSP, which is almost always a rip off in terms of shipping cost!
