Simplified Shipping Mode
This is the mode for any guest visitors that are not logged into the site as well as for any new accounts created on COMC.com. In Simplified Shipping Mode users see the cost of shipping bundled into the listed price of items. Any items they buy are “free” to ship in the sense that they have already paid the per-item fee when they bought the item. They can therefore ship an unlimited number of items in their inventory or shopping cart for one flat shipping fee.
Advanced Reselling Mode
Once you are signed in to COMC.com, there is an option under My Profile & Options to switch into Advanced Selling Mode. In this mode, you will not see bundled shipping or be charged the per-item shipping fee when purchasing an item via instant purchase or making an offer. Instead, any unpaid per-item shipping fees will be charged when a shipment request is made.
All account holders have access to both modes and may switch freely between them to find the site experience that works best for them. Users in these two modes are able to interact with each other effortlessly. Buyers in Simplified Shipping Mode see items at the cost it will take to get them in hand, yet they can still flip cards and make offers. Users in Advanced Selling Mode are able to buy large volumes of cards without unnecessary overhead. They can reprice them to whatever they like, but still have the option to have the items sent to them at the time of their choosing by paying both the flat shipping fee and any unpaid per-item shipping fees.
A Note on Port Sales
In the case of Port Sales, please note that per-item shipping fees are never charged for items purchased via port sale, and therefore per-item shipping fees will always be due at the time a shipment request is made.
