7 Sellers Surpass $1,000 in Sales

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.

Counteroffers are Live!

I finally got an opportunity this weekend to polish off the counteroffer functionality and push it live. It was an immediate hit. This has nearly eliminated the rejected offers, and it seems to have increased the total number of offers. Maybe people aren’t as shy about making offers if they know that the offers can be countered?

Today there was a perfect example of your site enabling collectors to do what they love… haggling over prices.
🙂

GrahamsCards sent a $47.50 offer for 35 cards in my LowPriceCards account. The original asking price was right around $90. I countered by asking just under $70. GrahamsCards countered my proposal by offering $60. I countered again with a $65 proposal, and GrahamsCards accepted my proposal.

Here are a couple of the cards that were included in the transaction.

To my knowledge, COMC.com is the only site that allows buyers to make a single offer on multiple cards and let the buyer and seller haggle back and forth over the price. This was truly a beautify interaction to watch. This is only a small taste of the many innovations that COMC.com will be bringing to the online sports card community in the near future.

SteveSC passes $1,000 in sales!

Last week SteveSC became the first seller other than me to surpass $1,000 in sales. Steve is a local dealer here in the Seattle area, and he was one of the first people to start beta testing our consignment service last summer. He has been extremely pleased with the sales and service proviced by our new website.

Top Sellers

SteveSC is currently the #2 seller on COMC.com behind only LowPriceCards, but that isn’t really fair because LowPriceCards is the account used by my previous website, LowPriceCards.com. All of that site’s inventory was moved into this account when we re-branded LowPriceCards.com as the consignment website COMC.com. So, technically SteveSC is the #1 consignment seller on the site, but that that is soon to change because we have a couple other sellers that are making strong bids to take over that spot.

eaglescards and gooddeal have each given us around $15K – $25K worth of cards that we are currently processing. Over the next few weeks, a ton of great cards will be added to the site, and all will be at amazing prices!

Another seller to keep a close eye on is prestongillespie. He has only been selling on the site for 1 week and has already sold 300+ cards for more than $700.
