@EbayMafia @timberghost - To paraphrase Valiant Unity - E-mail notification is not Absolute!

My experience has been that sometimes, especially when they are backlogged, I may not receive E-Mail notifications. I have even received one submission back while it was still marked "received".

Could someone possibly check my order status, I submitted through a 3rd party so can’t check myself from what I can tell.

Well I was happy to see my Rapid pressing and grading with verification went through in about 3 to 4 weeks. But I still have my modern order that was delivered on May 4th and billed on 05/21/21. Hoping this order will hit grading soon. Had one with the other guys that was about 2 weeks earlier so hoping they are about the same time frame.

Normally CBCS opens every box when they get them in and enters the order in to the processing stage and that is where it sits until the bill it and some time after that it goes to grading. My modern order with the was received on 05/04/21 and billed on 05/28/21 and is still in processing. So in another 13 days it will be 3 months so far.

@Jlfr - Normally, CBCS updates the dashboard a few days after receipt. but, as was mentioned in Darry Haydens recent post, they are well behind updating the dashboard and it will take quite some time likely many weeks. Your tracking is your proof of delivery. Here is a link for you to review: CBCS Update

Good thing I didn't let myself get too carried with the idea of seeing grades when I posted this 19 days ago. Monday will be 22 days...no grades.

there are express options

fast press = $6 to $50 depending on tier of book - cuts time in half
fast pass = $10 - cuts grading time in half

So for an extra $16 to $66 TAT is cut to 17 weeks (3 1/2 months)?

@Bobashek - you are correct other than that you would typically add about three more days from the time they actually receive your comics to the time that they internally check in.

Remember, the are so deluged, they may not update the dashboard for several weeks, but that doesn’t mean that they haven’t check in.

@OPTICOMICS - under normal circumstances the dashboard gets updated as submissions are received, start processing, press, grading, vsp, labels, qc, encasement, shipping, shipped…..but right now, they are deluged so my advice is to look at the stated TAT, mark your calendar, enjoy the forum, and focus on other things. If you get some sporadic notifications…👍. Trust that they will get them back to you.

Thank you. That is what I thought so I just wanted to clarify. I will definitely look into the upgrade tiers on my next submission. I just wish the rep at the show explained it in more detail.

@OPTICOMICS - welcome aboard, by the way.

On the 2 day, CBCS is handling those right away. It still could take 1-3 days from the time they actually receive it, to internally check it in. And, because of the general deluge, they could actually be ready to ship back to you before the external dashboard gets updated. So, don’t be surprised…. What did you send in if you don’t mind sharing?

Hello all. I'm looking at liquidating my collection so may finally get some of my better books graded. First up is my SS #4 (Vol 1). I think it's a decent book (I'm guessing around 6-7, only real issue is the bottom left corner, spine is still square). Given the back log, etc... any recommendations on which tier of grading I should go with? I'm not in a huge rush but would rather not wait months.

@jesseaweiss
You can do consumer if you think the book is only going to grade around a 6.0.
It might get passed through. Save you some $$

So sorry for the questions this is my first submission so i can see my grade the invoice says completed will i get notification of a tracking number or anything like that or do i just wait and it will show up when it gets here

Collector Scifinator private msg quote post Address this user
@OPTICOMICS - under normal circumstances, yes, once completed and shipped, you should be able to see your grade and notes. Again, with the backlog, that may not happen until you receive you shipment. As far as tracking, I think the same applies. I have received tracking numbers in the past, but that might not happen with the backlog in place.
