You can now sell your CGC, CBCS or PGX graded comics right here on the Certified Comic Shop with my consignment service. This is an easy and efficient way to sell your comics, without having to put in all the leg work and effort it takes to sell comic books online. My white glove consignment service ensures that you’ll be in good hands as I market your comic to interested buyers, while you kick back, relax and collect your profits.
Selling your graded comics via consignment can be an attractive alternative to trying to sell them yourself on eBay, Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, etc. The benefits of consigning your comics at the Certified Comic Shop include:
- Stress free selling. You ship your comics to me, and I handle the rest.
- Access to my audience. My website receives over 2,500 unique visitors per month, plus I have a very engaged social following of active comic book collectors.
- No need to worry about shipping time, materials or trips to the post office.
- My commission structure is cheap…like really cheap (see details below).
- More time for you to focus on other things in your life, like visiting your LCS to buy more comics with the money you made from selling your comics on consignment (see what I did there?).
I want to give a huge shout out and recommendation to Jason at the Certified Comic Shop for his consignment service. I sent him two slabs and he sold them both for me. One sold less than 24 hours after he received it! I was going to list them on eBay and thought I’d give his new service a try. For less than eBay’s fees, he handled all details from taking pictures and listing on various sites to shipping to the buyer. I would highly recommend the consignment service and the Certified Comic Shop for anything you need. Great communication, highly professional website and a all round good guy. –Justin @523comics
WHAT COMICS DO YOU ACCEPT ON CONSIGNMENT?
I’m currently only accepting CGC, CBCS or PGX graded comics for consignment. The Certified Comic Shop is known as a destination for comic collectors to buy high grade comics online, and that’s the sole focus of my business.
WHERE WILL MY COMICS BE LISTED?
Once I receive your comics, they will be listed for sale on my website. Additionally, I regularly share my graded comics for sale with my Email subscribers, Instagram followers and YouTube subscribers. Your comics will also be marketed on other known websites where people buy comics such as Facebook Marketplace and Reddit. My goal is to help you sell your comics as quickly as possible. Because I don’t get paid until you get paid, it’s in my best interest to proactively market your consigned comics to people who can actually buy them.
You can also choose to list your consigned comics on my eBay Store in addition to the above. However you are responsible for covering the 10% eBay sellers fee. In order not to eat into your own profits, I recommend pricing your comics 10% higher than what we have it listed for on this website to cover those fees. That way you’ll make the same amount of money regardless of where someone buys your comic.
HOW MUCH DOES CONSIGNMENT COST?
The average commission that other comic shops charge for selling your comics via consignment is 10% of the sales price plus a payment processing fee. Also, many other outlets won’t even take a consignment if its value is less than $100. Not me. I’ll accept any graded comic regardless of value and my commission structure is ridiculously low:
- For graded comics that sell for less than $100 = 8% of sale price plus $2.00 to cover shipping supplies.
- For graded comics that sell between $100-$199 = $10 flat fee plus $2.00 to cover shipping supplies
- For graded comics that sell for $200 or more = 5% of sales price
Here are some commission examples:
- Your graded comic sells for $75 – I’d keep $8 (8% + 2.00) and you’d receive $67
- Your graded comic sells for $165 – I’d keep $12.00 ($10 flat + $2.00) and you’d receive $153.00
- Your Graded comic sells for $275 – I’d keep $13.75 (5%) and you’d receive $261.25
WHO SETS THE SALES PRICE OF MY COMICS?
I use tools like GPA for CGC, eBay Sold Listings and Terapeak to determine the current the fair market value and relative supply and demand specific to each of the comics you’ll be consigning with me. I also analyze how much competition is out there for the same comic in the same grade to ensure your comic isn’t drastically over — or under — priced. I’ll send you my suggested sale prices prior to listing and marketing your comics. Once the prices are agreed upon, your comics will be pushed out to the world!
If at anytime I notice that the market is trending upwards or downwards on one of your consigned comics, I will reach out to you with a suggestion to update your price. It is totally your call to accept that recommended pricing update or not. On the flip side, at anytime you can reach out to me and ask to have the price of the comic raised or lowered.
HOW LONG WILL YOU LIST MY COMICS FOR SALE?
There is no term limit for how long I’ll actively market your comics and have them available for sale on the Certified Comic Shop and related shopping platforms.
CAN I HAVE MY COMICS RETURNED BEFORE THEY SELL?
Of course! After 45 days of me receiving your consigned comics, you may request to have any unsold comics returned to you, however you must pay the return shipping fees. It’s worth noting that some comics may take longer to sell due to current market trends. If I foresee that one of your comics may need extra time to find the right buyer ahead of time, I’ll let you know prior to listing it for sale to set reasonable expectations.
HOW DO I GET STARTED WITH CONSIGNMENT?
If you have some graded comics that you’d like to sell on consignment, simply email me the list of comics to get started. Once I receive your email, I’ll follow up and provide you with my shipping address and further instructions. After I receive your comics and we’ve agreed upon their selling price, I’ll get them listed for sale on my website and begin marketing them on other shopping platforms and social networks.
WHEN AND HOW DO I GET PAID?
You will be paid via PayPal for each sale after it occurs within 24 hours of the buyer’s funds arriving in my PayPal account.
