    but I guess if one were to confuse this forum for another SCF would be a good bet. They have a nice TTM feature and relatively low derp ratio.
    We have a lot in common with SCF. Same software platform, same newsletter software, same mobile app software.


    Some they got from us, some we got from them.

For those not familiar with COMC, we are an online consignment service for collectibles that currently has over 16,000,000 items in stock. We pride ourselves on being the safe and easy way to buy and sell collectibles online.

    We've joined the FreedomCardBoard community to answer any questions and gather any feedback and suggestions that you might have about our service .I'll be happy to answer non-account or order specific related questions that you might have. Questions about specific orders/consignment submissions will still need to be directed to our Customer Service Team (staff@comc.com). Feel free to PM me any questions/feedback/suggestions if you'd like as well, as I'll regularly be checking both the boards and this account's private messages.

    On a personal note, I've been with COMC for coming up on six years now as a member of a couple of different teams (Identification, Customer Service, etc). I'm a lifelong collector, sports fanatic, finished 3rd at the 2013 Pokemon Trading Card Game World Championship, and believe that I own the largest Mitch Haniger PC in the world. Thanks for reading!
    Any chance buyers will be able to communicate w sellers at some point? Being able to let a seller know you are interested in a particular card but that it is well above market could lead to more sales, esp in the situation mentioned above where a card has been well-overpriced for years.

    I don't know how it's fixable, but often times it's difficult to find a deal on COMC.

    Anything hot gets pushed up to the max.

    Here's an example.

    Most of those are double ebay.

    I second this. I purchase or sell cards daily on COMC and I bet I'd move double the inventory if I could chat with the other party. Even if it were automated text with limited options to ensure the integrity of the transaction. I love COMC and have recommended it to many collectors and see this as the only weakness.

    James, I don't like having money tied up on the site, so I add paypal to my account in small increments. One thing that bothers me is that when I'm ready to ship cards I've purchased to my home, I have to add $10 minimum to my account to get them, when shipping is only $4. Any chance that COMC could have a true CUSTOM AMOUNT paypal option where you could add any dollar amount you wanted? Sometimes I'll have a few bucks in my account and want to add a buck or two to purchase a newly listed card. Is the $10 minimum due to paypal fees?

    nice to see a representative here. I've purchased many a card from the website, it's a great place to pick up (in my case) low end autos for set needs and save a ton on shipping.

    Also, great to hear you collect Haniger. I started with 2017 topps chrome and currently working on that set still. need the orange, red autos and the red refractor

    Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone! It's truly appreciated and I'm glad to be joining your community!

    We've heard the argument both for and against a messaging system similar to other marketplaces. For right now, our stance is that we are the safe and easy way to buy and sell collectibles online. COMC is responsible for all of the dialogue and customer service related issues of all items found on our marketplace - a benefit seen by most using our service.

    While there are definitely users out there who would like to haggle back and forth between traditional messaging platforms, we've found that our consignors appreciate not having the same back-and-forth dialogue that other platforms offer. We have an offer system in place, and consignors are able to set their minimum offer % within their profile anywhere between 50% of their asking price to 99% of their asking price to field offers. Of course, this does no good if the case where a seller might have an item priced multiple times above current market value. In cases like those, it is best to assume that the seller does not to haggle on the item, and would rather keep the item.

    I will pass this feedback along to our Developmental Team. For the time being, there is a work around to the problem you've described, and I'd be happy to share it. If you add the minimum $10.00 to your account, but only need to use $4.25 of it to complete a purchase or shipment request, you can immediately choose the 'request a refund' option, and refund the excess store credit left in your account that you just purchased. These requests are generally processed within 48 hours of being placed.

    I too am on the hunt for the orange, red and xfractor autos as well as both the auto and non-auto super. Shame neither of us will be getting any of those at steal prices anymore!

    Our store credit system is just one way to buy on the COMC Marketplace! You can add items to your COMC shopping cart and check out using your paypal account or a credit/debit card via paypal guest checkout.

    James, is COMC working on a way to "watch" a card that is currently sold out so that when another one is listed for sale, the potential buyer gets a notification? That'd be a very handy feature!

    Great question! Would be a nice feature for sure

    The FCB / COMC alliance was etched in stone at the top of Mount Vesuvius many years ago... and shall remain.
