COMC Company Update – October 2021

October Message from the President

Thank you for your continued support as part of the COMC community. Not only are we excited to be entering basketball, football, and hockey season, but we are blessed to be a part of this fun and fast-moving industry. We have made some heavy investments this year as your trusted partner, so you can buy, sell, and flip cards. We focused our efforts on improving customer experience by reducing response times to customer inquiries, decreasing shipping times, and optimizing our quality assurance processes.

We are happy to share our wins! Our Rushed shipping service is now going out in under 4 days. We are making consistent progress each week to clear out the Economy shipping backlog and reduce our Economy ship times. You should expect to see Economy ship times decrease to 1 month by Black Friday.

We are providing same-day responses to customer inquiries. To continue our mission to deliver the best-in-class customer experience, we are enhancing the customer resources available in our COMC Help Center, extending our Live Chat hours, and optimizing our website.

Our focus is now on driving your sales. We launched our new Fresh Pulls discount, so you can get your in-demand items for sale cost-effectively while decreasing the turnaround time to list and sell them. In addition to this new offering, we will be promoting Elite and Auction items both directly through our COMC channels and in partnership with eBay.

With the holiday season quickly approaching, we will keep optimizing to help you find more of the cards you want while better supporting you to increase your sales and get more eyes on your cards.

Happy collecting!

Julia Getsch

– COMC President and Cofounder

COMC Company Update – September 2021

What a month of tremendous progress and growth for COMC!  Last month, I reported on improvements made to our shipping services. This month, I am excited to share that we finally got through our backlog of customer service tickets and are ready to roll out some exciting new improvements. Our CS team is now equipped to provide you with same-day responses as well as offer real-time support through our live chat service.

Throughout the past year, our CS team has worked tirelessly to keep up with hundreds of new tickets daily and thousands of tickets in our backlog, all the while developing training materials and onboarding new team members. We have heard from you that responsiveness has been a significant pain point. Our continued effort and commitment to improving your customer experience is finally being realized.

With the ticket backlog behind us, we will be investing in quality improvement efforts to deliver the best-in-class customer experience. For the remainder of the year, we are focused on launching our quality assurance program in CS, specialized account management services, and delivering real-time support. In addition, we will engage more with you through customer surveys, feedback programs, and focus groups. We want to provide you with multiple channels to communicate with us about our services.

Not only have we made strides on improving your customer experience, but if you recently placed a shipment request, you likely noticed our shipping times have markedly improved. In August, we broke another record, shipping over 575K items! This is the second consecutive month we have increased our shipping output by more than 15% month over month. For the last three years, we averaged 285K cards shipped per month, while never shipping more than 360K cards in any given month. For the last four months, we averaged more than 465K cards shipped per month. We continue building our shipping team as we clear through our Economy backlog and prepare for Black Friday.

On the Listing Team side, we grew our team of Card Specialists by over 40%. This is a direct investment in increasing our listing capacity. Please stay tuned for further updates as we gear up for basketball, football, and hockey season. With all the recent developments in the Industry, Tim and I remain energized and focused on making COMC your favorite place to collect and the place you can count on to bring joy to your day.

Thank you,

Julia Getsch

COMC’s One Hundred Millionth Item Revealed

Earlier this summer, we announced that COMC would process the 100 millionth consigned item in company history. To celebrate this achievement, our founder & CEO Tim Getsch offered to buy the card for market value plus $1,000. We’re honored to share that we reached this incredible milestone, and the COMC user who consigned Item #100,000,000 accepted Tim’s offer to buy the card!

Proudly Presenting Our One Hundred Millionth Item. Congrats to COMC user lukew298 for Consigning Item #100,000,000.

Congrats to COMC User lukew298!

COMC Item #100,000,000 is a 2017 Topps Triple Threads Unity Jumbo Relic Auto numbered 32/75 of slugger Joey Gallo. The card was consigned through our Select processing service by COMC user lukew298. Officially added to the COMC marketplace on July 31st, 2021, the timing proved serendipitous as Joey Gallo had just been dealt to the New York Yankees!

COMC founder & CEO Tim Getsch bought the card from lukew298 for market value of $50 plus $1,000, in the form of COMC Store Credit. This card now holds a special place in Tim’s personal collection as an important piece of COMC history.

Congrats again to COMC user lukew298 on consigning the 100 millionth item! You can check out more of lukew298’s items for sale on COMC here.


Thank You For Choosing COMC!

This milestone and the overall growth of our company would not have been possible without the support and trust of our consignors, customers, and team members. Thank you for choosing COMC! We look forward to offering safe & easy trading card consignment for years to come and continuing to focus on fulfilling our mission to optimize your enjoyment of the hobby.

For the most recent progress updates regarding our shipping & fulfillment services, please see COMC president Julia Getsch’s August 2021 COMC Company Update.

COMC Company Update – August 2021

I am happy to report that we made significant gains over this last month on improving our shipping experience. This progress has allowed us to prepare for our first in-person event in almost two years at the National Sports Collectors Convention and will allow us in August to begin focusing on increasing our listing capacity once again.

In July, our young fulfillment team finally hit its stride. We saw increasing numbers of items ship each week and surpassed half a million cards shipped in July!  In my last update, I mentioned our goal was to get our Rushed shipping down to 5 days, and I am happy to report that we did it. We made a key organizational change that empowered the team to be more engaged, collaborative, and productive – an investment in retention. This change also better equipped our team to find and fix problems, which greatly reduced delays. July saw our millionth card pass through our new warehouse automation, which is a milestone demonstrating the scale to which we are now operating. Finally, we implemented a Shipping Dashboard to provide you real-time status on your placed orders, so you can track our progress.

In August, you should expect consistency and expediency in our Rushed and Express shipping services. You should also expect to see ship times steadily decrease for our Economy shipping service. Our goal is to get our Economy service under a month by the end of the year. Just as important, you should see fewer errors, closer in keeping with the standards we provided for over a decade as well as better accuracy in our quoted ship times.

In Q2, we shifted resources from our listing department to bolster our developing fulfillment team. This was never a long-term solution, as our listing facility is an hour’s drive from our new fulfillment facility and required a new level of investment from our staff. We were only able to accomplish what we did because of the dedication and care that our employees have for you, COMC, and the collecting experience. In August, we are investing our hiring efforts and support in our listing team, taking with us the lessons on scalability we learned in fulfillment.  

We are so grateful Tim and our team were finally able to meet with so many of you in person at the National after far too long. Hearing directly from you and brainstorming together has always been an amazing catalyst for growth and change at COMC. We have greatly missed these important interactions during the pandemic and look forward to connecting with you more frequently at upcoming events. I will continue sharing our progress with you, both celebrating our accomplishments and being transparent when we fall short. This is my commitment to our community, and we appreciate your continued support.

Thank you,

Julia Getsch

The cards will all be processed for free through our Standard consignment service, and winners will be chosen from a random draw after the conclusion of the NSCC. Winners will receive an email notification once the cards are added to their COMC accounts.

Registration will be available at our booth at the opening of the show each day at 10am CST, so be sure to come by our booth each day to enter into the giveaway for cards from each day’s breaks.

*If you do not have a COMC account, you can sign up for free at our booth or from your mobile device at the show. Sign up for an account now at comc.com/Account/Register. You may only register for that day’s box breaks the day of the box break. You may not register in advance for future days’ box breaks. All cards pulled from the breaks will be processed into the winners’ COMC accounts. You may not collect the cards at our booth and take them home with you from the event.

Panel Discussions

COMC will be hosting live panel discussions about the trading card hobby at our booth. These curated panels will feature industry experts, hobby entrepreneurs, social media influencers, and more who will share their journeys, discuss hobby news, and provide you with valuable insights. The panel discussions will range from 45 to 50 minutes each, and we’ll be announcing the lineups for each day’s panel discussions on our social media channels leading up to the show.
