Partial Port Sales are here!

Hello collectors and sellers! Over the past few months we’ve been working hard to introduce and refine new features on the site, many of which have been suggested from COMC users. One of the top items on our “By Request” list is the ability to offer partial port sales, and we’re happy to announce that this feature is now live!

A portfolio sale is when a user sells all of the cards they have listed as “for sale” in their account as a single large transaction, usually at a significant discount. In the past, COMC users have been able to offer port sales through our old Classified Ad feature, but it was an all-or-nothing affair. Until now there hasn’t been an easy way to limit your port sales to individual categories or eras.

Through the Promotion creator, COMC users can now offer port sales that are limited to a particular category, a specific year range, or both. For example, the Port Sales section of our Promotions page currently lists four partial portfolios from user WilliamsCards: 1954-2000 Football, 1936-1956 Baseball, 1957-1970 Baseball, and 1972-2011 Hockey.

Sellers can still offer their entire port for sale if they prefer, but the ability to also define smaller, more specific partial ports will enable them to target collectors of a particular category or era who may not be interested in an entire inventory. Also, while all listed ports will be able to field offers as usual, sellers will now also have the option to include an instant-purchase price.

Promotional Port Sales are now advertised in the Promotions section of the site and are included in the featured Promotions on the main COMC home page. We’ve added some additional port statistics for potential buyers, such as Average Book Value, Average Selling Price, and Highest & Lowest Priced Items. The Promotion approval process is automatic, so no more waiting for your ad to go live! The sales are managed by our system as well, making all

sales instant upon seller approval. In the past, large port sales have slowed down and, in some extreme cases, even stopped the entire site. The ability to now break down large ports into more profitable and manageable partial portfolios will improve everyone’s experience.

We encourage all COMC users to go to the Promotions page and browse some of the new port sales to get an idea of how the new process works. The link to create your own port sale Promotion is in the upper right section of your dashboard’s Manage Inventory page — we’ve tried to make the process as simple and self-explanatory as possible, and we expect to continue to improve it with your help.

We hope you like this new addition to COMC and, as always, we appreciate your feedback.
