Canada Post Potential Work Disruption

As you are likely aware, Canada Post services may experience a disruption as early as September 26 amid negotiations with the Canadian Union of Postal Workers. In the event of a work disruption, COMC and Upper Deck e-Pack shipments to Canada will experience delays. Shipments will be held at our Burnaby, BC office and will be promptly shipped when work resumes.

Orders already 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. 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.

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.

Thanks,

The COMC Team

Gearing Up For Black Friday – Helpful tips and Processing Postal Deadlines

Hello COMC Nation, 

We are about three months way from our annual Black Friday – Cyber Monday sale, our BIGGEST sale of the year! Buyers turn out in record numbers each and every Black Friday Sale, making this the most opportune time to be a seller on COMC. In order to ensure that our sellers have the best experience possible, here are some helpful tips and our processing postal deadlines to make sure that you get your consignment submissions submitted in time to be listed for sale during Black Friday.

Processing Postal Deadlines

Bolstering your inventory with fresh, new cards is a sure-fire way to attract more eyes to your COMC seller page. We want to make sure that you have ample time to prepare for the upcoming Black Friday sales period. Below is a schedule of when COMC needs to receive your consignment submissions  in order to be posted in time for Black Friday. This means that your submissions should be in the mail prior to these dates to ensure that they are delivered to COMC on or before the dates below.

Basic Service: September 20th.
Current Year Basic: October 20th.
Select Service: November 6th
Current Year Select:November 13th
Premium Service: November 15th

Competitively Price Your Current Inventory!

Are your items competitively priced to sell on COMC? The best way to ensure that your existing inventory doesn’t become too stale is to get in a good habit of routinely spot checking your prices against others selling similar items.  From within your inventory manager, sort your inventory by ‘Price Modified Long Ago’ to view your items that may have outdated asking prices.

Catch us on the Road in Montreal!

A quick update for our Canadian customers! COMC will be attending the AntiExpo at Stade Uniprix in Montreal, Quebec on October 13 & 14, 2018. We will have free giveaways for everyone who stops by – while supplies last – as well as prize draws for all registered COMC account holders. We will also be accepting drop-off submissions, so that you can save on the cost of shipping.

All Current Year Basic, Select, Current-Year Select, and Premium submissions received at the show will be uploaded into their owner’s accounts prior to Black Friday. Visit www.antiexpo.com for more details on the show.

Promote Your COMC Portfolio on Social Media!

Be sure to share the link to your COMC seller page across your social media accounts to increase visibility of your items specifically! You can locate your link by navigating to ‘My Port’ from within your COMC account dashboard, or you can use the template link below and replace ‘YourUsernameHere’ with your COMC username:
