    Is there a way to contact a member on COMC?

    I am looking at a card I would like to get but wanted to contact the member first so how would I go about doing that as I don't want to add money unless I know he will accept my offer seeing if you want to take money back they charge you.

    Doesn't COMC have some special offer rules for higher dollar cards? Maybe I'm just imagining this, but I thought you could offer on higher dollar cards without adding all the fund first.....Either way, you can always just request the money back within 30 days with no charge if he doesn't accept. That is if you can't find a way to contact him.

    COMC does not charge you to get a refund on unused credit as long as you ask for the refund within 30 days of adding that amount.

    Funny, there is a card that I have wanted on COMC "on sale" for $100. Looked to see if I could make an offer without store credit, and saw the price was bumped to $200. It's probably a $25 card on a good day, and I'd be willing to spend $50-$60 on it.


    Unfortunetly, it seems COMC has become a card museum.

    The type of situation you're describing is happening more and more. Sellers are asking prices that are so high, an offer that is closer to "market value" might seem lowball, if it doesn't get automatically blocked by the seller's minimum offer filter.

    Of course, "market value" and fair asking price are all pretty subjective.

    I've noticed this too. Do you think it is because of all the people trying to flip cards on there to make money? Maybe every time a good deal gets listed, it gets snatched up by a flipper and they jack up the price. Whatever the reason, i find myself buying less and less on comc.

    Not all users do that - when I send cards in, my goal is to sell them. So I try to be realistic about pricing. I do know some people do actually use COMC as a bucket - so they will buy a card and list it higher than it should be to eliminate interest. They can then show off the cards and use it instead of another picture site.

    Unfortunately, there are a lot of guys who price with their heads up their hoo-hoos. I see around 25 Chase Headley cards that would be purchases for me if the prices were even withing 20-30% of going rates on eBay.

    Since we are on this topic how much do they charge per card if I was to send cards to them to be sold. Is it even worth sending cheaper cards to them?

    They have three processing levels - Basic is .25 per card and takes 2-8 weeks (usually the majority are done well before 8 weeks lately), Select is .50 and processes in two weeks, Premius is $1.00 and processing in 2-3 days. Most of what I sell is in the $1-5 range.

    Here is their walkthrough:

    So does that mean when I scan and add the item it says up till it's sold or do I need to pay a monthly fee? Also do you pay up front or after the cards sell?

    You mail them the cards and they scan and add the information for you. When the card is processed and ready to go live, you will pay the fees - though they will let you go negative a bit if you are short funds - you can't predict how many will come and when. The card is .25 for the listing service and you don't pay a monthly storage until after 90 days - it is then .01 per card priced over .75.
