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.
Great selling platform!
Been using ShortBoxed for selling and buying. The ease of use and always innovating the platform by the creators who are collectors themselves. If you follow them on social media they have clear intention in building a platform to sell and purchase safely. I like the good deal feature on a listed book. It’s either a green dot next to the listing to showcase the books listing price is below current sold prices. And they just released an update where you can buy and sell raw books now!! That’s great news. I do love slabbed books but I’m a little old school in owning raw books (not certified rating by a third party and encased in a sealed plastic). So I’m definitely be looking forward to this update!! And their comic convention was awesome!! It was held in Silicon Valley, California and had just comic books. For us oldies that appreciate more comics to choose from than nowadays at conventions when comics have to compete with cosplayers, cards, toys. I just love an old school comic convention!
This is by far one of the best platforms to buy and sell graded comic books. The app keeps getting better with the recent improvements with adding data for both the buyer and sellers to make informed decisions. With FMV of books, recent sales, to sending custom offers for books. I like being able only to having to do a few small things from a selling perspective with taking a picture, price and ship once sold. Then from a buyer perspective if you buy a bigger book over a certain amount of money you get quality assurance from the company as the book is verified by them to ensure it's legit. Another positive is they actually verify and make sure that people selling on the platform are good sellers. So you can trust that the book you purchase is 100% legit. If the app eventually does raw books it will be a game changer for selling comics. Keep up the great work.
