What is Shortboxed?
Shortboxed is the premier app to discover, buy and sell collectible comic books. We grew frustrated with the old way of buying and selling - scammers, expensive buyer’s premiums and commission fees, antiquated websites, comic cons without comics - the list goes on. We believe there's a better way. Shortboxed is a modern, mobile 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 individual collectors such as yourself, list their items for sale on Shortboxed, while buyers browse and discover thousands of third-party graded comic books. When a user 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.

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.
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.
I met the Shortboxed crew at comic conventions before this app was developed. I’ve bought many books from these guys and was always happy with the quality of the books and the price I paid. On top of that, the service was excellent, knowledgeable and friendly. This app is the best of its kind and reflects the quality and customer service of the crew who runs it. I also really enjoy the comic related articles and extras that the app includes. The only problem I have with the app is self control,...I wanna pick up EVERYTHING!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
