I know we all look for alternative options on selling our cards, so I thought I would share my experience with Checkoutmycards.com. I have bought there on several occasions and have been happy with the experience. But recently I decided to ship some cards to them that don't get alot of attention trading and try them out.

I will share my experience with you as it goes..

I shipped 165 cards to them on 3/1 that were received on 3/4.

I selected the 4 week service (cards are uploaded within that amount of time) with a charge of $36. Postage was $9. Within a few days, my account stated that 10% had been processed and my fees were withdrawn from my account. Since that time, no other cards have been uploaded. I can't actually process them until the whole batch is completed.

I have also purchased some cards to "flip" (yeah, our favorite word around here). Most were purchsed for .25 and relisted for somewhere between .50 and .75. Not gonna get rich, but gives me something to do while I wait for the batch to be completed. They are mostly Classics, so I don't have to do much research on them...and some of them I can actually use for my collection, so if they don't sell, I will be happy to receive them.

I will update periodically and give feedback on when my batchgets completed...and of course sale results. They boast some pretty impressive numbers of cards and transactions...we will see how it pans out. I did also see that they have classified ads as well where people essentially list their entire inventory for one price....interesting.

I have to say that I use COMC quite a bit, I was skeptical at first, but have found that you can obtain a large number of cards for a very good price and the best part is you don't get raked over the coles with shipping and handling like you do on eBay. I'm not saying shipping prices are high, but when you can ship 100+ cards for $20 instead of what would have been maybe $200 on ebay it's a lot more friendly to the buyers.

Also, I've found that the prices can be dramatically lower, just on actual card price cost, then what you see cards floating around for on eBay. This may be due to the competition on part of the sellers to have the lowest price for a specific card or just that people are just trying to unload what they have.

From what I have heard from some of the sellers I know, it seems that a lot of the cards they see selling on the site are the lower end cards, as the high cards it seems everyone looks at, but passes by.

Anyways, that's just my .02 cents on the site from a buyer's standpoint. To this point, I haven't sold on there, but I just received a $20 first time seller's credit in my last package of cards that they sent to me, so maybe I'll send in a few of my duplicates and see how it goes.

Haha. Brian, we must be operating on the same wavelength. I shipped 2,000 and they are scheduled to be uploaded 4/7. I left some $ in my account and have had a blast "flipping" on there while waiting for my cards to go live. Also pulling together another batch to send in of lower BV cards ($4-$6 BV) but need to make some sales once my cards get there to pay for it as I don't want to contribute any more up front.

So far I think this is a great site (with reasonable charges) and will be great for me once I get back into busting open product to be able to just send shipment into COMC rather than dealing with Ebay and shipping individual cards that I don't want to keep.

They get a thumbs up from me and I suggest others check them out for buying or selling! There are some great deals to be had on the buying end too.

I've been selling and buying on there for the last month. Good site, reasonable prices. Good for set builders. I like the Make Offer button. Nice that you can at least attempt to negotiate a lower price.

This is another one of those reminders that I need to gather up more stuff to populate my "store" there with. I've had few sales partly due to having so few cards (a little less than 200, I started with about 230 or so) that coupled with the fact that most of the cards I have there are just 1 or 2 (3 or 4 in some cases) of several of that very same card. On some of them I lower my price to almost nothing to be the cheapest guy, and on others I don't really bother with comparison so I'm sometimes the highest, but most of the time I try to keep mid-range.

As for buying there. It has been quite a while since I've bought anything there due to the ease of getting stuff from the Bay or Sportlots.

Once in awhile I will find a deal on COMC, but for the most part I find what I want on the bay for significantly cheaper. In fact, I crack up at many of the prices I see posted on COMC... cards priced significantly over book for no discernible reason. It is good for a chuckle... wink.gif

Yeah..if you are just looking for one or two cards at a time..it's hard to get cheaper than the bay..however, if you are looking at getting 20, this saves ALOT oof money on shipping versus multiple sellers on ebay.

I have picked up quite a few cards from COMC by putting in offers. I have thought about selling on there, but still am unsure of some things. Do non-high end cards actually sell on there? I literally have thousands of cards I could do without?

At this point, I have no idea of what actually does sell there yet..I have used it primarily for inserts, but I would have to think that they would be just as likely to sell there....the low maintenance fees though (1 cent / month) is alot more attractive then relising them every month on EBAY...

So it's been a month and that's how many of your cards they have loaded? Either I'm confused at what you are talking about or that doesn't seem too impressive.

no...I'm not too impressed either at this point. They jumped to the 10% pretty fast so they could take my funds...but now that tomorrow is the due date, i am up to 20% loaded. And you can't work any of the batch until it is done...it's not like I can price some of the 165 cards or so that I sent them.

I'm hopeful that they just wait and end up posting on the deadline date, and that the update % doesn't mean much. It seems like others on the site pretty regularly update with exactly when there cards are going to hit "I have XXX many cards uploading tommorrow" leading me to think that COMC is consistent and posts the cards when they are "due". Mine are supposed to hit the 7th and are currently at 15% progress. I'm optimistic that that's how it works....and for the number I sent in, I wouldn't mind the price reduction to $.15 a card if they don't get them done by the 7th (as long as there done soon after that). Good luck with your's posting tommorrow!

I was waiting on my cards to complete and the percent jumped to 100 on the due date. I wouldn't put too much weight on the percentage.

well...hopefully you are both right, though I don't mind the reduction in fees as well. They are now up to 40% this morning, but the estimated date has moved to 4/6.
