The true value of a comic book is simply what someone else is willing to pay for it. By selling to the right buyer you can dramatically increase your chances of selling for a great price. The question is – who is the right buyer and how do you find them?
Selling to a large nationwide comic book buyer like Sparkle City Comics is almost always a smart decision for a number of reasons:
Fast & Easy Process
Large nationwide buyers such as Sparkle City Comics must have a proven, seamless workflow to handle their processes or else they wouldn’t exist. This means you can expect a fast and easy selling process. In contrast, selling to a smaller player or individual collector means there’s usually no set workflow in place and things could sputter or stall in a moment’s notice.
They Have The Resources To Pay A Fair Price
It’s great if a buyer values the comic you’re looking to sell very high, but it’s another thing to be able to actually pay that amount. If a large comic book buyer sees value in your comics for sale, they have the resources to pay what they think is a fair price. It’s always a shame to find a very interested buyer that ultimately cannot afford the transaction – something you usually don’t have to worry about with large buyers like Sparkle City Comics.
They Can Justify Paying A Fair Price
There are so many different types of buyers you can sell to. Some are fellow collectors and they are looking to add your comics to their own collection. Some are investors and flippers and they are looking to buy at a low price and resell them when the time is right. And some are brokers and dealers, and they are looking to resell the items soon after acquiring them. Within that last category, there are many different subcategories – from small pawn shops all the way up to large nationwide dealers like Sparkle City Comics. The difference between the small players and the large players is that the large players have an already existing process and network in place to sell their newly acquired comics into, which removes a lot of risk and therefore increases their willingness to pay a fair price. Pawn shops on the other hand require paying pennies on the dollar for items in order to keep their business running because there’s a chance they may not sell their newly acquired items for a while and can’t have too much cash tied up in inventory at any given time.
They Have A Reputation To Uphold
Sure, some individual collectors you sell to will be a pleasure to work with because they are genuinely nice. Others not so much. With larger organizations, it’s a requirement to offer great customer service because they hope to continue to work with you in the future. They have a reputation to uphold. This is a very strong incentive that you as the seller should feel comfort in.
