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 for all the buying and selling policies.

Discover Amazing Content

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.

Best Option For Comics

I had heard a lot about shortboxed but never gave it much thought and stuck with EBay or other routes until a couple months ago. My only complaint since downloading the app is that I didn’t do it sooner. Setting up an account was super easy, posting books to sell is literally 2 pictures and a price, the selection of books is incredible and easy to filter through.

My other really positive experience was with the employees of shortboxed. When I created a sellers account someone reached out and asked if I had questions or needed any help. They’ve always been very quick responses if I have questions and thorough with their responses.

The update has also been awesome so what are you waiting for!
