Checked out my winning bids on Weds night.

MCS shipped them out on Thursday. Books arrived in New York, 1500 miles away today.

Did you pay for non-economy shipping? My last order took 3 weeks to get to me after placing the order.

We offer $4.95 flat rate shipping in the US. Your order was expensive enough to get bumped up to priority at the same price, but a lower valued order wouldn't go priority unless you picked it (and paid some extra).

One thing I have noticed with their auctions- CL and CC's auctions as well, is if you check out while the auction is in process, you jump the line. I imagine most people wait until after the auction is over and then they have many orders to fill. I skip the modern auction and by checking out early, seem to get my books much faster.

It's obvious that you have some pull with mycomicshop and that they give you preferential treatment. I'm tired of everyone around here with their little groups and cliques.

As a seller, I like how they issue checks asap. Not that 30 day + that goes on everywhere else.

So I have been trying to figure it out and maybe I'm not Googling hard enough, but what is the Buyer's Premium?

 

In this example, is the owner of the comic getting $716.05, MCS is getting $21.49, and shipping is $4.95? Is that how it works?

His "pull" was he bought a lot -- don't see anything wrong with that.

MCS gets 3% from the buyer, and then gets a consignment fee from the seller.

That is on a sliding percentage.

Conan can explain it in more detail, if he wishes.

It's a fee the buyer pays the consignee.

 

Can you put that into terms of the example? Like what dollar goes where and why?

Typically myCS takes 10% from the consignor, 3% from the buyer, for 13% total. It's amongst the highest consignment fees in the business for items less than $300. Same as eBay when PayPal is used; only Heritage takes more. Over $300 they are more competitive.

well, take this dollar for example, you that take a percent of that dollar and that amount goes there, he takes that and that's the fee, that fee than goes there, that comes here, that percent goes there, this percent comes here.

 

see, pretty simple hey.

Owner of the comic(s) gets $716.05 minus our commission, which is 10% on sales up to $300, minimum of $5 per item. 8% $300 to $3000, 6% over $3K.

 

The $4.95 shipping and $21.49 3% buyers premium go to us.

Heritage is 18.5% on both ends, so I'd say not amongst the highest. MCS has the lowest shipping of all. Comicconnect, while they don't have a buyers premium, hits the seller with a 10% como and usually an add;l 3% as they pass on the buyers credit card fees to the seller. Clink is 10% and #1 in my book once you get over $300 SA & GA books
