Canada Post Potential Work Disruption

As you are likely aware, Canada Post services may experience a disruption as early as July 2 while they are in the midst of negotiations with the Canadian Union of Postal Workers. In the event of a work disruption, COMC will reduce the shipping options available to our Canadian customers.

Canadian customers who place a shipping order during the work disruption will be presented with the following shipping options:

  • FedEx Ground – sent from our Burnaby, BC location
  • Economy – held at our Burnaby, BC location until Canada Post resumes operations
  • Local Pickup* – held at our Burnaby, BC location for customer pickup

*Note: Local Pickup will NOT be available on the Upper Deck e-Pack website. If you have cards on the e-Pack website you would like to have shipped to our Burnaby location for local pickup, please transfer them to your COMC account and submit a shipment request on COMC.com.

Should the work disruption occur, we strongly recommend our Canadian customers take advantage of COMC’s unique service which allows customers with a COMC account to buy over time and ship everything together in a single shipment when Canada Post resumes operations. If you do not yet have a COMC account, sign up for free here.

Canadian sellers: You can either drop your consignment submissions off at COMC Canada in Burnaby, BC or use alternative carriers such as UPS, FedEx, and Canpar. There will be no service delays for cards stored remotely in Canada purchased by non-Canadian residents.

Orders that are in the Canada Post system during a work disruption will remain in their system until Canada Post resumes operations. Please anticipate delays in delivery times for these orders.

In the meantime, we encourage you to visit www.canadapost.ca/update to read about the latest developments and sign up for email updates.

If you have any questions, we’re here to help! Contact our Customer Service at staff@comc.com or 1-800-517-3540.

Coming Soon to eBay – COMC

Capture

Who wants to sell more cards?

For nearly 5 years, our sellers have enjoyed the ability to cross-list their inventory on Amazon, and COMC quickly became the #1 seller of trading card singles on the Amazon marketplace. Get ready, because starting today, we’re about to do the same with eBay.

COMC sellers can now easily have their cards listed in the COMC_Consignment eBay Store by opting in to List on eBay beta.

List on eBay (BETA)

We want our sellers to have an opportunity to try out the new List on eBay option for free, so during the List on eBay (BETA) period, you can have us list your port without any per-item listing fees. By turning on the List on eBay (BETA) option, you’re agreeing to automatic 20% off offers when an item sells on eBay, just like with Amazon.

While you’re enjoying an increase in sales on eBay, we’re going to monitor the sales to help us finalize a brand new commission structure which introduces a Final Value Fee on every sale to better support high end cards. That means you’ll earn the same amount of Store Credit from an eBay sale as you do from a COMC sale. Additionally, our current 20% Cash Out fee will be significantly reduced and even eliminated, in some cases. We’ll announce more details as we get closer to the end of the beta period.

How to opt-in

If you’ve already opted in to List on Amazon, you don’t need to do anything to List on eBay. You already agreed to take 20% off offers when items sell on Amazon, so we opted you in to List on eBay (BETA).

However, if you don’t currently have the Amazon option turned on:

  1. From your Dashboard, go to your Account Menu and select Profile & Options
  2. Scroll down and look for List on eBay (BETA) and Amazon
  3. Click on the radio button that says “Yes – I will accept 20% off offers from eBay and Amazon”

That’s it! Throughout the coming months your cards will gradually be listed for sale in our eBay store in addition to Amazon and COMC.com.

Note: As we’re ramping up, you may notice many of your cards aren’t listed on eBay right away. We’re actively working on trimming many of our descriptions down to fit eBay’s maximum 80-character requirement while still retaining the important searchable terms. We appreciate your patience as we make our descriptions more eBay-friendly. And don’t worry, the descriptions you see on COMC.com won’t change.

To keep things simple at first, items for sale on COMC will be Fixed Price listings on eBay. After everything is in place and running smoothly, you can expect to see additional options like Best Offer support, eBay auctions, and customizable listings.

We anticipate those of you who list on eBay will see a significant increase in your sales volume. When you expose your inventory to eBay, your cards will be seen by a whole new group of buyers who have not yet learned about the tremendous benefits of shopping on our site, like the ability to buy over time and combine purchases into a single shipment. Not only will we provide eBay buyers with our industry-leading customer service, we’ll also include marketing material in their shipments to educate them about COMC.

So head on over to your Profile & Options and turn on the List on eBay (BETA) and Amazon option. We’re thrilled to take this next step with you and can’t wait to see how listing on eBay helps your cards find a brand new market of collectors.
