    COMC Questions

    Hey, guys. I've been hanging around COMC looking to fill cheap holes in my PC. I've got some store credit but haven't bought anything yet, mainly because I'm not 100% sure of a few things as a buyer...maybe you can help with questions I couldn't find in their FAQ or tutorials.

    1. If I buy several cards and aren't ready to ship until I get enough to be worth it, do they store the cards in my account for free until I'm ready to have them shipped to me?
    2. When I get ready to have them sent to me, it looks like economy shipping is a flat $3.99 for an unspecified number of cards. Anyone know what the upper limits may be? Can I have 1000 commons sent for the same flat, economy $3.99 shipping?
    3. The seller's tutorial says that the buyer pays $.25/raw card for shipping. So every raw card I buy will have $.25 tacked onto it?

    Thank you for any answers or experiences you can share!

    1) Yes, free for buyers until you decide to ship

    2) I've shipped around 130 standard-sized cards with economy shipping

    3) Nope - you pay the $3.99 or whatever.

    Thatís my favorite thing about COMC. Buying a bunch of cheap cards for months then having them all sent to you for 3.99.

    The second and third points only apply to Simplified Shipping Mode. If you are in Simplified Shipping Mode, you pay the 25 cents on the front end of each card purchase and $3.99 to ship at the back end. If you are in Advanced Reselling Mode, you dont pay the 25 cents when you purchase the card so you have to pay it at the time of shipping.

    So if you buy 100 cards itís 25.00 dollars plus 3.99 for shipping when all is said and done? The only difference is when you pay?

    That is correct. Advanced Reselling Mode is really just for the flippers. You don't pay the 25 cents because you are never going to have it delivered anyway.

    So the $.25 is already factored in when you browse cards to purchase in Simplified Shipping mode? (example: a card listed for $1 in Simplified Mode would show as $.75 in Advance Reselling mode)
    I bought a few cards for around $1 each and I didn't see anywhere that it added $.25/card...even when I proceed to "Request Shipment".
