We are continuing to experiment with the best way to run auctions. We just posted 5 new auctions from DKSchultz. They all have extremely low minimum bids, and they are broken out by sport so that you can bid on just the sports you are interested in.
Also, this is the last day to bid on $7,000+ BV, Primarily Football Cards from GridironHerosAndGreats. The minimum bid is more than 90% off.
Top Sellers & Flipping Cards
In the next week we plan to push an update to the site that will change the Top Sellers list so that it incorporates cards that you purchase from the site instead of only reflecting the cards that you have sent us on consignment. If you want to move your way up the Top Sellers list, winning an auction will be a great way to make a quick jump up the list.
COMC, and Dave Elmore in particular, would like to thank everyone who has purchased from or donated to the Cards_For_Alzheimers account in recent weeks. Special kudos to donors dawgfan72, DKSchultz, laburgher, odiegoat (who actually dropped off cards here Monday while on vacation from Minnesota!) and SteveSC.
Just one quick clarification, however: as stated in the original post, offers are not accepted on this account. Dave has been flooded with them, and unfortunately he’s had to reject them all. That’s because he’s committing to getting the most for each and every card, with the understanding that he’ll drop the prices by 10 percent on a weekly basis. (For instance, the majority of the cards with book prices are currently at 47-48% of BV.)
SteveSC is one of our top sellers, and when he mentioned that this was the first month where he made more money off sales from COMC.com than he did from the card shows he does on weekends, I decided to see exactly how we were doing…
Wow! The site is definitely back up and working smoothly. This week we have been setting records for number of orders and size of orders. Several people have been placing 100+ card orders.
Yesterday we set another record for most sellers in one purchase. Someone from New South Wales, Australia placed an order for 139 cards from 30 different sellers and only had to pay $20 for shipping to Australia. That is absolutely amazing!
All of the cards were Michael Jordan, Tim Duncan, or David Robinson cards.
COMC.com is really taking off. We keep getting calls from people that are really excited about the site, and our sellers are starting to enjoy the success.
There are now 7 accounts that have earned more than $1,000 in store credit by selling cards through our consignment program, and there are many more sellers that are getting close.
SteveSC was the first consignment seller to pass $1,000 in sales.
PrestonGillespie was the not only the fastest seller to pass $1,000 in sales, he was also the first seller to have $1,000 deposited in his PayPal account. Preston had more than $1,000 in sales in less than a month.
GoodDeal was the second fastest seller to pass $1,000 in sales. It took him just under 2 months, but he would have done so faster if we had the man power to process his cards fast enough. He has been very patient with us as we are experiencing growing pains.
DKSchultz was only a hair slower than GoodDeal in his race to $1,000. He hasn’t sent us as much inventory as GoodDeal, but with prices that are almost as good as PrestonGillespie, DKSchultz has seen a lot of success.
EaglesCards just passed $1,000 in the last few days. He is another seller that you should keep a close eye on. He currently has less than 2,000 cards on the site, but we are in the middle of processing almost 5,000 more cards for him.
LowPriceCards has a strong lead in total sales. This is the account used for all the cards that were being sold on my previous website, LowPriceCards.com. That site evolved into CheckOutMyCards.com almost exactly a year ago. It was technically the first account to have more than $1,000 in sales, but it isn’t really a consignment seller since the inventory is technically owned by CheckOutMyCards.com.
TimGetsch is primarily my childhood collection. Though it did have $1,000 in sales before any other consignment account, it kind of had an unfair advantage with a 6 month head start before we opened up the system for other sellers.
Some other accounts that are approaching $1,000 in sales include the following.
