COMC Hot List: November 13-November-27 (now extended until December 4th)

(updated nov 27th) Hi Gang – Moe here! We got some good news! In light of the upcoming holiday and the super Black Friday specials we have happening at COMC, we’re going to extend this Hot List for another week, so you have 7 more days to get your cards to us, in order to qualify for the current Hot List! Have a great holiday and please be careful this weekend!

Hello COMC Nation! It’s an awesome time to be a sports fan; football’s playoff races are starting to happen, hockey and basketball are in full swing, and did someone mention the Winter Olympics are only 3 months away? (well, we just did, so there…) And, on top of all that, it’s time for the COMC Hot List! It’s that special time where we let you know what cards we’re thinking are going to be great sellers and we give you the opportunity to get them on COMC.com as quickly as possible…even in time for Black Friday!

The Hot List Theme

Since this is the week many of MLB’s award winners are being announced, we thought they’d make an excellent theme. Cards belonging to the Rookie Of the Year winners (Wil Myers and Jose Fernandez), the Cy Young Award Winners (Max Scherzer and Clayton Kershaw) and the League MVPs (Miguel Cabrera and Andrew McCutchen) are all Hot List Eligible.

So what does being on the Hot List mean?

COMC wants to encourage our users to get these hot cards into your accounts to offer for sale as quickly as possible, so starting today, any cards submitted for the Hot List will qualify for our “Hot List Special” processing. With this service, you will receive One Day processing at the special Hot List price: $0.50 per raw card and $1.00 per graded, encased, or jumbo card.

  • Clearly write “Hot List Special” on the outer mailing package and/or the address label.
  • $5 minimum batch fee (We recommend submitting 10+ items.)
  • 200 item maximum per week
  • Must be postmarked by November 27th, 2013
  • Can be mailed to either our US or Canadian office
  • Any submissions received on a Friday or Saturday may not be processed until the following Monday.
  • Submissions with non-Hot List items mixed in will be downgraded to One Week service.
  • Redemption cards may qualify for Hot List pricing, but will take up to a week to process.

You’re welcome to submit Hot List batches at the same time that you submit other batches with different service levels, even if they’re mailed in the same package, but please make sure that each batch is clearly separated and labeled, and that “Hot List Special” is written on the outside of the mailing package and/or mailing label. Failure to have the outside of the package properly marked may delay the time in which your cards are processed.

Thanks for your input for this new Hot List! Be sure to watch our FacebookTwitter, and Google+ pages for the next Hot List Call Out in a week!

And, for our friends outside the United States, please join us on our new COMC International Facebook page, and follow our new COMC International Twitter feed.

The New COMC Bulk Price Editor

During the days of the original CheckOutMyCards.com website, Tim introduced the Bulk Price Editor – a tool that made pricing cards quick and easy for those who had submitted large quantities of items for consignment.

When we moved to COMC.com, we had to discontinue the availability of the Bulk Price Editor, as the technology of the new website was incompatible with the way the Bulk Price Editor was created.  We knew it was a popular tool, so it was always our intention to create a new Bulk Price Editor, one that was compatible with COMC.com.

After a lot of work and effort on Tim’s part, we’re able to announce that the *new* Bulk Price Editor is available as a Beta download.

Please note that using the Bulk Price Editor takes up bandwidth on the COMC servers, so we ask that sellers limit their usage to adjusting their prices on a monthly basis. We want to keep the Bulk Price Editor as a free service, so we ask everyone to be kind and not overuse it.

Bulk Price Editor DOWNLOAD (login required)

System Requirements:

– Windows XP or later

– Microsoft Office Access 2007 or the Access 2007 Runtime (Free Download)

How to Install:

– If you don’t have Access 2007 or are not sure if you do, download and install the Access 2007 Runtime from Microsoft. (If you download the Bulk Price Editor without Access 2007 Runtime, you’ll get a message telling you to download and run the Access 2007 Runtime first.)

– Download and install the Bulk Price Editor (login required).

How to Use:

– From the start menu or the desktop, click on the Bulk Price Editor shortcut.

bulkstart

– This will bring up the Sign In page on COMC.com.

– After you sign in, the Bulk Price Editor will start downloading the items from your inventory.bulkload

– When this is done, you can search through your inventory for groups of cards that you would like to perform bulk operations upon.

bulkhome

– Once you have selected the group of items you would like to perform a bulk price change to, you can select the type of bulk operation to perform.

bulkpercent

– When this is complete, you can review the pending price changes.
– You can click in the green cells to manually edit any of the pending price changes.
– Finally, you can submit your price changes to COMC.com.

Thanks for your patience as we worked to bring back the Bulk Price Editor. Again, we request that users limit their price changes to about once per month – this will not overtax the servers and will allow us to continue to offer the feature for free. Please use the comments section below to let us know how it works for you, if you have any difficulties in the process of loading or running the Bulk Price Editor, and feel free to share any ideas or thoughts you may have.
