Question COMC charges you up front to run a sale? lol WTH?

Is that some kind of joke? I tried to run a 10% off sale and it said I needed to pay COMC $33 to do it. Uh, your'e freaking dumb COMC. Why would anyone pay a site up-front money to run a damn sale. The freaking $33 is MORE THAN WHAT WAS TAKEN OFF ON THE SALE, which would guarantee $0 in sales! Who runs this company, a mentally handicapped monkey?

The only way it would cost you 33.00 is if you ran the sale for 11 days. Trust me, you run a 10% sale for 11 days you will be much more disappointed than you are now.

That's what it was. I figured it would just be free. I mean, why the hell wouldn't it be. But apparently these people are dumb.

You're trying to run an 11 day 10% off sale on less than $330 worth of cards? And do you understand that if sales were free than there would be no such thing as a sale anymore? And you're calling someone else a mentally handicapped monkey?

been discussed numerous times - nothing new

if it were free, every seller on comc would be running continuous "sales"

You can't get past the first screen without it telling you that. Sounds like running a sale isn't for you, but some people on that site swear by them.

Wow man, I really think you need to take a deep breath and a step back.

Think about what they do. COMC is for people that look to move cards... usually lots of them... for MINIMAL work. They do everything for you except remove them from your house and price them. You think they are running a charity for all that non-sense? This is a way for them to pay for marketing efforts (you know, those things they do that bring eyes to your cards). They don't force you to set cards at a minimum price... so if you don't like their fees on running sales (another tool that brings more eyes to your stuff)... lower your prices.

Ha. Exactly!! I ran a 35% off sale a few days ago and only sold 14 cards. Sold 13 cards Saturday and 10 Sunday without a sale. Better off just pricing stuff fairly and being responsive to to all offers IMO. The free sales are nice though!

I can "never" sell on ebay again, and neither can anyone who lives in the same household as me. They never gave me an honest chance to fix the so-called 'problem', just deleted the years of work, time and effort it took to create the 600+ listings I had on there and said 'too bad, you should have done better'. I still have so much money put into what I was selling, and now no means to sell it. I'm completely screwed. All this less than a month before Christmas. I use ebay sales to pay bills, buy presents, etc... Now they tell me to screw off over basically NOTHING with ZERO recourse. Ruining my Christmas, not allowing me to pay my bills, bending me over and telling me 'too bad'. This company is about as UN-AMERICAN as it gets and I hope for nothing but the worst for anyone making these decisions that so negatively affect good people who haven't done ANYTHING wrong who are just trying to get by. I pray for the day that a PROPER auction site is created to compete with and show ebay how to treat people who are their bread and butter. Shame on you, ebay.
