    Good morning, thanks for your message.  If you have specific questions on what you were charged, you should reach out to our accounting department and they can go through your charges with you.  You can reach them by phone at 877662-6642 and follow the prompts for accounting.

    The Modern grading tier is $20 per note (plus whatever discount you receive at your membership level). There is a $5 reject fee for books that do not make the minimum grade. 

    Thank you!

    Hi, I followed your instructions and called Accounting. I explained my card was charged twice but I only have one invoice, and that I have a question about the shipping charges.

    After the gentleman in accounting found the second invoice I had not received, and confirmed I'd been charged $240 USD for shipping, he felt my other questions were best suited for customer service (I agreed), and transferred me.

    I asked the customer service agent about the packing and shipping policies as pertaining to my order.

    She assured me that my 9 slabs and 40 raws (pictured below divided into the 2 small boxed shipments, not the regular sized 25 slab box), were shipped according to CGC policy and pricing.

    I asked why I was quoted $90 USD for shipping and then charged $240 for shipping.

    She stated definitively ( I had her repeat it for clarification) that only 25 books could be put in a box, regardless of how many are slabbed and how many are raw.

    Furthermore, she stated (again twice when asked for confirmation) that I had been charged the "old rate of $120" for shipping as I had submitted the order in May.

    I replied that my last order of 25 slabs arrived in one large box with a shipping charge of 90 USD, and that was the old rate, not $120.

    She assured me she was correct and I'd been charged correctly, and that any box shipped from CGC, regardless of size or weight, was $120 at the old rate, and $180 (maybe$160 can't remember for sure) at current rates. I then again had her confirm the statement that neither size nor weight have anything to do with shipping.

    I disagreed on the charges being correct, but did not bother addressing the size/weight/box matter as a policy is a policy, regardless of its validity.

    I then thanked her, as she seemed firm in her convictions and hung up.

    After hanging up I checked the FAQ page and included a screenshot below, along with photos of both $120 dollar half-sized unfilled boxes.

    I've also attached my confirmation email and packing slip, both clearly stating a $90 dollar shipping charge.

    I'm simply hoping someone can help me understand the numerous discrepancies in this situation, to help me determine if I've been charged correctly.

    Thank you.

    Thank you I will do so!


  4. Hi all,

    I'm hoping to get some clarification on the charges for pre-screen process, graded/not graded books, and shipping.

    Can you tell me what the total amount shoud be for a submission of 49 books to modern tier at a 9.8 pre-screen, and only 9 of them ended up graded?

    I have the $149 membership.

    Thanks for your help!

    Hello!

     

    Welcome to the "Comics Market - Forum Only Selling" board!

     

    The moderators have asked everyone around here to help educate new comers about the posting rules for this forum so that we can keep things running smoothly. So whenever we see a new thread go up that's missing some of the information required by the rules, someone will generally happen along and post this reminder (by moderator request).

     

    You can find the posting guidelines here:

     

    http://boards.collectors-society.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=1460472&page=1#Post1460472

     

    Specifically, you should check out #s (FILL IN SOME NUMBERS HERE. OR DON'T. LET'S FACE IT DIGGING UP RULE NUMBERS IS ACTUALLY WORK.)

     

    They are well worth reading, because your posts can be removed from the boards if they don't conform to the guidelines. This will help you to attract more buyers as well, since this is how people expect to have books offered around here.

     

    Thanks, and glad to have you here!

    Hi I read the guideline posts and I believe my post adheres to the rules. If not I apologize and am happy to modify if necessary.

  7. Very interested in this topic. Thanks for the helpful info thus far.

    I've switched from photos to high res scans of both sides of book, out of bag.

    My specific questions:

    1. I truly am not a pro grader but want to give my customers as honest and clear a picture as possible. I feel the whole disclaimer of not being a pro grader now detracts from my listings, even though it's the truth! Should I leave this in or remove it from my listings?

    2. Numerical grading or Letter Grading? The most common grade I see on Ebay is NM. As this can conceivably mean 9.2, 9.4, 9.6 I see this as a double edged sword. Being an amateur, I am likely to only be within a 9.2 to 9.6 (4-point) range anyway (if I'm lucky).

    3. To grade or not to grade?I've only ever had 2 books returned out of a few hundred. One was a legitimate return - my scans truly did not show a wavy defect, however I did NOT grade this book in the listing as it was shortly after FIRST return in which the buyer said the book was not the grade I'd given in the listing. Being naïve I asked for photos from the buyer to show the differences from mine. However, Ebay did not support the request and did not request ANYTHING from the buyer other than his word. I'm sure you've all experienced some version of this situation if you are an ebayer, but it leaves me confused as to the best approach.

    4. I truly love comics and truly want to provide the best buyer experience possible, so can any of you describe an IDEAL listing or provide an example? I'd be grateful!

    Doom Patrol 12 is the only Issue I haven't found a picture of yet from that run - so it is very scarce -  Doom Patrol Annual 1 is too late for a Canadian newsstand variant - the picture below shows the newsstand edition - with both US and Canadian pricing

    DP#12 CPV falls into Zatanna Special #1 territory for me, I've never laid eyes on it so not convinced it exists.

    Further proof that thrill bidding losers come at all feedback levels -- cyclocross13 (977 positive, member since 1998)

    Won a book for a couple hundred bucks (was high bidder for roughly two days), asked to cancel an hour after auction close.  I refused and said I'd go through NPB, to which he responded he'd pay and leave negative feedback.  He did pay this morning, and I was ready to take him to task but ultimately didn't want the hassle, especially with the risk of getting a German phone book returned to me after a chargeback attempt.  

    Payment refunded, order cancelled, feedback extortion reported to eBay.

    Another vote for this clown, cyclocross13, reports items not as described, when I ask for proof/pics I get no response other than case opened.

    Those resident evil magazines are pretty hard to and 5 is really hard. I havent seen a copy of any of them for many years now.

    Yeah when I found them I was sure there was something about them but I wasn't sure what. Also, full disclosure, the magazines were in the toonie bin.

    Though this book has appeared a little more frequently in the last 2-3 years, the price has held up reasonably well (so far).

    The ebay listing at $1600 is... well, let’s just say “disconnected from reality.” Your copy is pretty rough, but if I was trying to sell it, I might test the market at $400 but be prepared to take offers. Copies in the 4.0 to 5.0 range have been selling for $400-$500, so pricing yours that way might be a tad aggressive, but worth a try. My guess is that $250-$300 is about right, though, based on the pictures.

    i would lean towards selling now. I’m pretty bullish on Whitmans in general, and this is definitely the toughest, but it’s become a little more common of late, and I’d be worried about whether the prices of low grade copies can hold at current levels.

    That’s my two cents, anyways...

    Brock/Keith thanks for the advice and insight. It's much appreciated.
