Supporting graded and encased cards

I am currently adapting our system to start supporting graded cards and other encased cards. These cards are going to take longer for us to process, they will use significantly more storage space, they will cost more to insure, and they will cost more to ship.

We are planning to charge $1 for the processing fee and $1 for shipping. Normal raw cards will stay $0.20 for processing and $0.20 for shipping, but we will also bump the maximum shipping fee from $20 up to $30.

Let me know what you think about these proposed fees.

  1. Sounds ok but please keep non-graded cards your main focus. Why not keep your mailing max.@$20. if only non-graded cards involved. Love your site and would hate to see the small to medium collector lose out to the mega collectors. You have a good thing going–move slowly on changes. Thanks for opportunity to give input.

  2. I am glad you are taking on the encased card. I have some encased cards (Bowman Originals) that I have been wanting to sell and this site is the only place I sell anymore. Soon as I get back from moving after retiring from the Navy, I will send them to you.

    The fees are very reasonable. Keep up the great work and expansion!

  3. I like the idea and have been hoping you would expand into that area. I look forward too both buying and selling graded cards from here as well as non graded.
    The only question I have would be if a buyer buys a mixed lot of non and graded cards how will that break down in shipping?
    Keep up the GREAT work

  4. Thank you for the great feedback!

    Dave, the shipping would be $2 per shipment + $0.20 for each normal card + $1 for each graded card. We would cap the shipping at $30.

    Terry, we want to keep the fees simple and understandable while still covering our costs. The $20 cap was actually very low. We introduced that rate more than a year, and the post office has increased shipping rates twice since then. This proposed change shouldn’t affect most people.
