COMC: Making the Grade

Recently, as many of you have noticed, COMC launched its new Grading Service.  That means it is a perfect time for a blog post to answer some of your questions and talk about some of the feedback we have received.   First, let’s see what it looks like!

When you click here in you Inventory manager you will see the option “Submit for Grading.”  That will bring up….

When you click on the Beckett Grading service…..

You will be asked to declare the value of the card so that we can properly insure it.  Once you click continue, the next thing you will see is…

…the option to select either our Monthly or Weekly Service.  You will not only be able to see when your cards will be shipped to Beckett, but you will also see when you can expect them back fresh, graded, and slabbed!

So what happens once you’re done?  Easy!  The card will be taken out of your account and prepared for shipment to Beckett.  During the time in which your card is in Beckett’s care, you will be able to see which cards you selected for grading by going to your Dashboard and clicking on “Grading Submissions” under the Buyer Menu.

Then, a few weeks later when your card has been returned to us, your graded card will be put through for One Day processing (this is part of the service and will not incur an additional fee), given a new ID number and new scan, and placed back into your account.

Pretty amazing if you have cards in your Inventory that demand a grade!  But what if you have these cards at home that are begging for the same treatment?  We are ready to serve that need as well.  When you go into the new Submission Wizard, you will see an option to submit cards for grading….

Though we don’t charge anything up front for processing for this service, the only thing you will be able to do with the item once we process it is submit it for one of the supported grading services.  Whenever you do you’ll be asked to pay the normal grading submission fee.  The rest works just as if it had been in your inventory all along.

We look forward to helping you get the most out of the cards you want graded.   Keep following us on the blog, FacebookTwitter, and our new Google+ page, and please tell us what you think of the new service, and how we can make it even better for you!
