What is Shortboxed?
Shortboxed is the premier app to buy and sell collectible comic books. We grew frustrated with the old way of buying and selling - getting scammed on social media, expensive buyer’s premiums and commission fees, antiquated websites, consignment, comic cons without comics - the list goes on. We believe there's a better way. Shortboxed is a modern, mobile-only marketplace featuring a curated collection of third-party authenticated comic books from dealers and collectors all over the U.S.A.
How does it work?
Sellers, including dealers, comic shop owners, and collectors, list their items for sale on Shortboxed, while buyers browse and discover thousands of third-party graded comic books. When someone buys a book, the seller confirms if the book is available, then the order gets processed and the seller receives a pre-paid shipping label to ship the book out. Sellers get paid once the book is confirmed delivered. Super simple!
Shortboxed is the easiest way to list books for sale!
Just scan the CGC barcode, take a front pic, take a back pic, and enter a price - that’s it! We take care of the rest, including exposure to thousands of collectors daily. We approve and process every single listing, which can take up to 24 hours for a submission to be live on the app.
Buy and Sell With Confidence
Shortboxed only features books from trusted dealer partners and approved sellers, with policies and safeguards in place to protect both buyers and sellers. We currently only feature third-party graded comic books, so you can feel confident that you will receive the exact book you purchased, with no shenanigans. Please read the FAQ in-app or on Shortboxed.com for all the buying and selling policies.

Shortboxed is more than just a marketplace. Aside from daily deals and special offers, you’ll discover exclusive blog and video content like interviews, community updates, industry news, and more.

A better comic buying and selling platform
I’m an active comic collector, I buy and sell comics on a regular basis. I’ve used almost all the online platforms for this hobby, from eBay to Craigslist, from Facebook Marketplace to Instagram. Those platforms are all generic in that they were made to sell anything.
Shortboxed is different. Shortboxed is better. It was developed by comic collectors for comic collectors. Their passion shows in the details. The app is a pleasure to use. It’s clean, intuitive and convenient. There are filters to help you find what your are looking for. They have a “Make an Offer” option. There are great original content in the form of articles and also collector spotlight interviews. Did I mention the Deal of the Day feature? Yeah, even bargain hunters can score amazing deals in graded books via the Deal of the Day.
Buying is a breeze. And selling is pretty simple too. I’ve done both on the app. It’s the most enjoyable and trustworthy comic buying and selling platform I have used. What I love the most though, is the sense of community that they are building. Comic collectors share a “magnificent obsession”. The Shortboxed app understands this and delivers a magnificent experience. I look forward to seeing how the app will grow over time.
The best way to buy and sell comics
As a buyer and a seller I can that this the best app out there for comic books, making offers is super easy and very forgiving. There’s no pressure to buy something just cause you made an offer which is nice in those just in case situations.
Selling is amazing, just take the pictures of your graded books and boom that’s it! It’s seriously that easy, they even make it easy when you get offers cause you can counter and accept very easy and they even take out the hassle of having to purchase a shipping label so buying the wrong label to ship your book does not happen. It’s just super easy and it has room to grow and get better and better!
Try it and you’ll love it if your fan of comics or wanting to just buy some cool stuff.
Game Changing for Online Comic Book Shopping
This app is so easy to use and navigate. The UI is simple and browsing feels intuitive. Each item description cuts right to the chase: minor, major keys, etc.. I had a couple of problems with my first few offers, but the Shortboxed tech support team was responsive and helpful. The ‘Make an Offer’ feature uses the best aspects of online auctions and removes the stress of losing an item to another bidder in the closing seconds. They also have a good inventory with books being added daily. I recommend this to any level of comic book enthusiast looking to buy slabs.
