COMC community, we have a very exciting announcement to share with you today that will benefit our customers, partners and employees.
eBay and COMC announced that our companies have entered into a commercial agreement to accelerate the growth of the trading card hobby, and that eBay has made an investment in COMC. You can read about the announcement in eBay’s press release.
First things first – our new partnership with eBay is intended to expand access to our extensive portfolio of cards and collectibles and to help scale our fulfillment services. This agreement with eBay, a longtime partner of ours for seven years, will enhance what you love most about COMC and will accelerate our ability to create the most seamless online buying and selling experience possible, continuing to fulfill our purpose of optimizing joy for collectors.
Enhancing your experience
We are extremely enthusiastic about today’s news because eBay’s investment and partnership will help us enhance your collecting experience and our infrastructure. In particular, the investment will enable COMC to expand our technology-based listing and management model, strengthening our fulfillment services and allowing fellow collectors to focus on what they enjoy.
This means that we now have greater resources to invest in further innovating our technology, enabling our team to provide faster and better services, removing even more friction from your collecting experience.
Ultimately, today’s announcement is a major milestone in our efforts to innovate trading card collecting, bring joy to collectors, and make The Hobby accessible for as many people as possible.
Our purpose remains the same — to “optimize joy for collectors.”
We want to thank all of you – buyers and sellers on our platform, our partners, our employees and the collecting community. You have helped us build a business that supports 100 million trading cards under management.
We will continue growing our business and investing in what makes us great.
We are thrilled to have this opportunity to uplevel the collecting experience for our customers and introduce The Hobby to more people around the world.
The future is bright for collectors, and we are so lucky to share it with you.
