If you have something listed as an X-fractor /350 and you remember sending in a red refractor /5, double check it. They are pretty quick to fix errors. I submitted some a few minutes ago and they were solved in minutes (rotate card).
Glad to hear I'm not the only one. Although not nearly as many as you, I report errors anytime I see them. Figure it could save both the buyers and sellers a lot of headaches and hassle down the road.

I don't think it's an issue of spam. People here always share the good sales. You just claim you have a good sale but you only have a good sale on stuff people are less interested in while overpricing the stuff people would like.

Did you not have another 50% sale at the beginning of this month? Don't know how this is your biggest sale ever?

Missed this post or would've responded sooner. The reporting of errors goes back to the Checkoutmycards.com days, so predates the Beckett fiasco, as you put it.

As for people running sales, I find that I hit the back button after about 30 seconds on at least half of the sales I click on. The good sales seem to be few and far between.

Those are already good prices. 100$ on COMC for an orange chrome auto /25 of a really good prospect is not overprice. I think my prices are fair on most of my items.

Double ebay while on sale is "not overpriced"?

If that's the case I have a bunch of cards that are also not overpriced I'll sell you.

They are your cards, price them what you think they are worth. The buyers will decide the price.

Nobody would say anything if he had not been spamming some tremendous sale that actually isn't all that good.

Well I was trying to word it nicely lol. I looked at only the first page but it's clear things are still well over ebay.

I've never understood why people price stuff sky high when people aren't going to bite. I also prefer not to waste $3 when I run a sale by pricing things too high.

As I understand it, the issue with Spam on this thread is that there is a board specifically for Spamming your COMC sales:

I'll admit I bought a 10 cent card with condition notes. COMC charges like 50 cents to process a card with condition notes, so it's like minting money.

Question for the lower end sellers:
Is any profit good profit?

I'm working through another batch to send in soon and was wondering what my cutoff should be. Cash out break even is about $0.33. Do you send in anything above that?
Right now I'm going by any listings $1.00 or greater. Should I lower that to $0.75? $0.60?

What are your thoughts?

This only applies to about 50-100 of my cards. The other stuff is at least $1.50, with most being $2.00+ and a lot $5 and above.

I did great before using $1 as a cutoff but was wondering if that was too high.

Is the card making you anything just sitting in a box at your house? At least if it on COMC there is the chance it will sell and you get a little bit out of it.

Good point. I'll probably lower my threshold to $0.60, maybe $0.65.
