jseau makes appearance in 6 figure class

I had to do this blog post quick because it is probably just a matter of hours before jseau dips below $100,000 again. With the price and selection that jseau offers, his cards have been flying off the site.

Top Sellers 2009-10-18

jseau has sold more book value worth of cards than any other seller. Here are the top sellers based on book value sold. He has sold nearly twice as many cards as the next highest seller. Back in August jseau became the first seller to surpass $100,000 in book value sold.

Here are some of the cards he has for sale. You better act quickly because they are sure to sell out soon.

eagle flies to the top

It has been a long time coming, but after 2+ years of offering our consignment service, we finally have a seller that has more cards for sale than my original LowPriceCards account.

eaglescards is a shop owner from the Seattle area. After sitting down with him and comparing his eBay numbers for the past year to his Check Out My Cards numbers, it became obvious that he was better off sending his cards to us to sell.

Even though our 20% cash-out fee sounds high to some, it is actually amazingly low. Once you factor in all the other expenses required to sell on eBay, it turns out that most sellers are paying 30-40% of their final sales to eBay, PayPal, shipping fees, listing fees, labor costs, supplies, and the list goes on.

eBay definitely has its place. There are some cards that are hot and should be sold at auction. But it turns out that the majority of a persons collection will sell better with a Buy it Now or Best Offer pricing. That is exactly what we offer.

Since we are doing everything in large volume, we are able to cut costs way lower than everyone else. For example, our shipping rates are $3 for the first card and $0.25 for each additional card. Our average order is about 10 cards. That is $5.25 for shipping of 10 cards or just over $0.50/card.

eaglescards thought his buyers were getting a better deal on shipping from him on eBay because he was offering $2.50 flat shipping on any number of won auctions. The thing is, the majority of the time people only buy 1 card. It turned out they were paying about $2 shipping per card. That is 4 times what we charge on average per card. This is extra money that buyers could be spending on actual cards instead of paying for shipping overhead. This is the advantage of having one warehouse with nearly 1 million cards to choose from.

Needless to say, eaglescards is set to start soaring. He is now actively buying collections and sending them our way.

mwheeler27 is the 4th to cross $100,000

mwheeler27 is another member of the Blowout Cards forums to have found success using the Check Out My Cards consignment service.

Today he crossed $100,000 in total book value for sale on the site.
TopSellers-2009-08-26

His actual value is quite a bit higher than this because he has sent us so many cards that are too rare to have a book value. Here are some of the amazing cards that he currently has for sale.

Record Setting Pace

Two weeks ago we had two new employees join our team. These employees and the rest of our team have been doing an absolutely amazing job. There had previously only been one week where we processed 20,000 cards.

Last week we processed 20,182 cards to break our previous record of 20,041 cards.
This week technically isn’t over yet, but we have already processed 23,606 cards this week.

That is an amazing pace. I took a glace at the top sellers and noticed that very soon my LowPriceCards account won’t bee the only account with a six digit book value. The growth we have seen over the past year is pretty stunning.
