We want everyone to be a success at selling your items.  Some things you can do to make your store a busy place include posting as many items as you can.  The more items you post the more of a change a buyer comes along looking for that specific issue.  While comics are a huge industry its also very niche.  Buyers are looking for a specific issue to fill a run or to spec on and if you have something great like a Jonah Hex #2 not every buyer is going to be looking for that.  So the more items the better.  Also if you want to price competitively some good resources are covrprice.com, key collector and ebay sold listings.  You also want to promote your store everywhere you can.  You can add your social media links to your profile and store page but you can also share item listings on your social media so buyers can be brought directly to your store or item listing.

The only fee yousellcomics.com charges is the flat 5.99 and 15.99 monthly subscription fee or 5 percent if you choose the pay when you sell tier.  There can and will be a percentage fee charged by Stripe.  We have no control over the percentage Stripe charges.  We will be looking into adding other payment processors to give you the flexibility to manage your money including cryptocurrency options.

All prices are listed in USD.

Here at Yousellcomics.com we use Stripe as our payment system. Vendors can sign up with a Stripe connected account. It is located in your seller dashboard, click settings on the left column and payment option on the right column.  Stripe is known world wide and has a great reputation with sellers.  Stripe accepts credit cards and credit style debit cards.  As a seller any transaction is deposited directly to your bank account. You can find more information about Stripe and Stripe connected accounts on the  Stripe website.  Typically your first payment can take 7 business days to reach your account.  After that in the US it will payout on a 2 day rolling basis.  Everywhere else it is a 7 day rolling basis.

You can calculate the shipping on an item page.  This is based on your location and the Vendor’s shipping cost. Vendors are encouraged to add their shipping info to their about section as well.

Currently the platform does not directly have this ability.  We will be looking to add this feature in the future.  We suggest two things, as a seller you can list in the description you are willing to take a best offer and will respond to messages.  As a buyer you can message the seller directly to inquire about a certain item and a best offer.

We do our best to remove suspect buyers or sellers, a seller or buyer acting in bad faith, etc. You can leave a rating and message for others to see what your interaction was like.  We will do all we can to help you with any issues.  Always make sure you are using a payment system that has coverage.  Credit card is the best way.   Since we are not involved in the exchange of money we do not have the ability to reverse any payment but we can help with any questions you might have or information on the transaction subject to the EULA and privacy laws.  Please open a case with the payment processor or your credit card company for resolution of exchanged monies.

We would love to hear from you on any features you would like to see added in the future.  You can email info@yousellcomics.com!

When listing an item you can now set a specific shipping cost for each item as long as your shipping options have been setup in your dashboard settings.  Using the Specialty shipping allows you to list a different cost for just this item listing.  Example would be shipping a whole run of Detective Comics would be more than just a large box option you normally offer so you can set a specific price for specialty items.  This price over rides your global setting for that country and for that item only.

Taxes can be added at the bottom of the listing in the attributes section.  This is a per listing option or you can bulk edit your orders to add the taxable option.  When making your item taxable choose the standard tax option in the drop down menu.  The tax rate is set by Geo location. If you are in Ontario, Canada the tax is 13 percent. If you are in California the sales tax is 7.25 percent.
