I buy on there only for now. I have yet to have my order shipped though. I just keep adding to it.
I do wish I could learn how to flip on there though. But I don't follow real well with whos hot and in and who is not. And whats a good value and not. I do check when people list port sales but they never seem like real good deals to me. I know I good deal when I see one, but most times those ports people are trying to sell off just look like the left overs they cant seem to sell. And most times they want more then they are worth. And when there is a decent looking port its a ton of cards and I have no way of knowing if I buy it all could a make some coin on it or lose my shirt. Because its not always about the big cards. Sometimes you can make more on 500 little $0.50 cards then you could on 1 $200 card. So you have to know whats good in the lot and whats not and so on.
I also know there is some big money in hockey if you know the cards, players, sets etc. Which I know nothing about unless its the really really big names. And that just obvious though. If its a Crosby/Gretzky dual auto 1/1 logoman from the Cup then its worth big money. But beond that I know about 0.00001% about hockey stuff.
Also I wish they would change the offer percentage you can send. Right now its 50% offer. A lot of people do price stuff very fair or great deals. But some people think there Edgerrin James base card is made of gold. And at 50% its still way to high. If it bookes $10 and honestly I wouldn't pay more the $3-4 and they have it priced at $30 what can I do with that???
I also don't like those sellers that price something for $10 and you offer them $7 and they just auto decline any offer. Its like why have offers? You could offer them 9.99 and they will decline it lol.
I also wish you could see what a card sold for. It will show sold if its on you watch list but how much??
And then there is the S&H. For just my order right now if I add nothing else will cost me about $60 just for S&H. I know they charge like the packing fee. But there has to be someway to cut some or all of that out. I know they are already making a killing on the processing fee alone. And then the pulling fee. And then 20% cashout fee. They are slowly becoming like ebay. The more fees sellers pay, the more they charge buyers, the less buyers buy, and you start to see decline in the site. And now with the new site they are just "hiding" the fee. As all card have a $0.25 added onto the price. Which you used to pay $0.15 per card on the S&H if you used bulk. So you are actually paying $0.10 more now per card. But they are trying to make it look like its a great deal now. But its actually a rip off. lol
I do like the site overall but there are a lot of things I would do differently if it was me. I have thought of trying to start up a business basically doing the same thing and just fixing everything they do wrong. And making everything they do right somehow better. But getting started is the hardest part. Telling people to ship you a box of there cards for you to store I just don't see going so well in the beginning, once you are rolling like they are its no big deal. One of the hardest things I have going against me is I am good with computers overall, but when it comes to building a webstie and working on it and code and all that im kinda lost. And I know that is a big part of running a site like that.
But that is kinda my thoughts. This is the short version!!
