@Scifinator I mean, if you say so. I don't have any "reliable sources", just what CGC says. And the fact that I have (and have had) a magazine or 2 in, and they've, so far, taken just as long as the comics.

@xvipah - I hear you and again in the past and typically, a comic submission and a magazine submission would see the comic come back first. However, for the past several months going back to late last year, the massive influx of comic speculation submissions has put comics well past the norm.
Mag tats have been affect to be sure. But, not as much as comics and a lot of that delay to mags is from the extra delays in check-in caused by...the excessive amount of standard comics.

This info comes by way of separate dealer level services.

@Scifinator Gotcha. Interesting that they wouldn't advertise that. It does make it annoying waiting on my Last Ronin books. Stupid odd sized comics.

It’s crazy, you’d think a reholder would be the simplest thing to do. Turnaround times for it should be negligible.

The process doesn't run in silos...all orders converge to being holdered.

Can someone tell me what the various STAGES are?

I sent my first order off back in February, and when I go to my dashboard and open my order, it shows me what stage my books are in.

I don't go into the dashboard every day, but I have noticed stages for "Received" and "Grading"

Is someone able to list what ALL of the different stages are?

Thanks!

Great! Thank you!

Can anyone shed light on what the time frames are between each stage?

@MurrayC I believe that it varies. I don't think one can put a time limit on different stages.
Post 89 IP   flag post
Collector KatKomics private msg quote post Address this user
@MurrayC main issue is that the stages aren't updated. I've had books go from "received" to shipping in 3 or 4 days after months and months of no updates.

labels and grading seem to be eating up the most time right now. 4-5 weeks in each for my regular submissions.

For those of you using CBCS Canada, is it normal to be stuck in ShiptoCanada for over 3 weeks? This is painful to watch my books stuck in limbo right now when they've already been graded and I can't even know what the grades are.

@MurrayC - you can also add stages like:

Billing
QC
Encapsulation
Etc.

But these tend to not show up very often and if they do, in many cases only briefly.

That's great news. My moderns were delivered on 2-22 and with VSP adding a week, will hopefully be shipped by the 24th.

Yes, I have an invoice stuck in ShipToCanada and I received it 2 months ago.

if you message one of the moderators they should be able to kick it out of ShipToCanada and get your grades/notes etc. to show

Update for the Dallas submissions: my books were delivered on 4/23 and just about 15 minutes ago my submission charged and is now updated to processing. So 18 days from delivery to processing. In comparison, another place has announced the are presently opening submission boxes received the week of 4/5/21. So I’m happy with CBCS’ movement. I’ll be gathering more books for another CBCS submission shortly!

@Weaponx606 - And, keep in mind, that although it was 18 days before CBCS updated your dashboard, they actually “opened” your submission right after receipt. So, processing actually started before staff updated the dashboard.

Scifinator is right, the TAT starts when they open the box.

Understood, unfortunately that info doesn’t hit the dashboard so it’s a bit vague. My “personal” TAT clock doesn’t start until I get charged, that way I don’t get overly anxious until the posted TAT hits my charge date.

Woohoo! My "Holiday 2020" submission went from received to grading, I'm assuming it hit pressing somewhere in between. I really want my Star Wars #2 back.

My eyes are escaping me, but did I see someone post that their books have been in "Labels" for several weeks?
My order is now pushing over 2 weeks in "Labels" and that would be a 1st for me.
So just looking for guidance/other's experiences if 2+ weeks is "normal" these days to be sitting in "Labels"?

What was the 'status' prior to processing?
