Welcome to COMC Canada & Black Friday

Let the countdown begin! We are weeks away from a significant advance in the North American card collecting experience.

Over the next couple months we will be rolling out services that make it safe & easy to buy & sell items between the US and Canada. No more hassling with customs forms.

We are essentially creating a private shipping service between our Seattle area warehouse and our new Vancouver area warehouse. We will electronically file all the necessary paperwork to transfer items to and from Canada. No more worrying about items getting hung up at the border!

New Canadian Warehouse
Assuming things continue to go according to plan, we will announce the address of our new location in about 2 weeks. It will be in Burnaby, near Vancouver, and will be available for dropping off consignment submissions and picking up orders. Everyone in Canada wanting to consign items online will now be able to simply ship to our Canadian address instead of dealing with customs forms when shipping to the states.

Those of you in Canada are welcome to continue shipping items to our US warehouse if you would like our faster services.

What about our US customers?
In order to use the Canadian Pilot service the items must be submitted at the Toronto Expo or shipped from a Canadian address to our Canadian warehouse. We encourage those of you in the US to use our Black Friday processing special.
