Why Choose Us?

You, the consumer, are #1  

Coin and Card Auctions is an innovative and exciting new MARKETPLACE PLATFORM designed by avid collectors. We bring to the table the latest in technologies including blockchain, NFT, and Smartcard  Why does this matter?   I use an analogy that the horse and buggy were great, but Henry Ford brought the automobile and automation, and transportation changed the world. Our marketplace is what Henry Ford was to the horse and buggy era.  

Probably the easiest is the huge amount of savings.  We do this because we believe to grow the market for future generations that consumers must make a profit.  A comparison of competitive marketplaces is assumed using a Competitor #1, 10.8% Final Value Fee and a Competitor #2, 16% Market Fee.  The sample assumed sales for 12 months was $62,400 The cost savings for a storefront at 10.8% was $5,539 for a savings of 461.6% and at 16% the cost savings is $8,784 for 732% savings

Our marketplace is structured for three different market segments.  Segment 1 is the Storefront. This is a subscription-based storefront for $100 per month, no limit to the number of items, no final value fees, a suite of value-added services (development stage), and real intrinsic value buildup possibilities in each individual storefront.   Segment 2 is Non-Storefront - no listing fees and no limits on the amount of items. 5% is charged on sold items and this is a non-subscription category., Segment 3 is Dealers Corner - this is a non-auction venue mostly designed for business owners. It's great for bullion sales or any numismatics and/or sports trading card business that simply wants to avoid the auction and list items in a storefront. 

Please note that during the Value Added Services application development between now and January 2022 there is absolutely no cost to use the marketing platform. THIS MEANS USE of THE MARKETING PLATFORM is 100% FREE UNTIL JANUARY 2022

In addition to encouraging direct communications between buyers and sellers, we focus on education. Watch our blogs and comment on matters of interest. So, what Consumer Value Added Services are being developed?  

1. Market Data Mining & Consolidation - How do you determine the scarcity, value, availability of an item you either have and want to sell or need and want to purchase?  Just like the rest of us, you conduct multiple searches across numerous search engines on numerous websites then work to extrapolate outdated into current information.  This can take a bit of effort.

Our solution - We have programmers developing applications intended to allow users to enter key terms (keywords) that will search multiple websites on multiple websites on multiple search engines, collate, sort, and return consolidated data to the user including reference sources.  

2.  Data Capture and Bulk Uploads – Most of us don’t want to go through the listing process over and over and especially not if I have a lot of items.

Our Solution – We have a program in the development stage that allows data capture from competitor websites with a bulk upload feature onto our website without removing any of those items from existing locations.  Why would we do this? To allow users a mechanism to try a new marketplace with a minimum of effort.  We believe in free markets and think users should not become captive to any single market.

3. Marketing – Let's face it when it comes to marketing all we care about is selling our items. But how do we build high-quality leads? For the large business footprint, marketing efficiency is modeled on building a consumer base and then rotating targeted marketing into that base. This is why listing items on some of the largest marketplaces only periodically result in sellers receiving inquiries from interested buyers.

Our Solution – We redesigned the business model.  Today’s market is far more educated than just a generation ago. Recognizing quality leads are better in a smaller business footprint we limited each database to 500 storefronts with unlimited non-storefront users and unlimited non-auction format businesses.  This allows us to include storefront owner participation in various user-selected keyword-based marketing programs. funneling qualified buyers directly to storefronts.  With each database/domain networked over a blockchain, and all registered users can freely interact securely between databases whether it’s a single database or 500 databases.  

Storefronts – build real wealth - Marketing platforms today are not designed for building wealth. They are designed today to extract as much of your money from you that they possibly can.

Our Solution – Think of a personalized storefront as your own business and how you build value? Part is to have products or services that are in demand and market those goods or services in exchange for money.  We set up individual payment gateways to maximize the buying/selling experiences directly between the sellers and the buyers.  Use your PayPal account to pay or receive payments or set up authorize.net direct to your bank for credit and debit card processing. No payment services are provided by Coin and Card Auctions however the payment gateway is available to you through your account after registration.

Build you business – Individual Storefronts can market and sell their items as well as their storefronts with or without inventory. Intrinsic storefront value based on traffic and sales history can be valuable to an interested buyer. We manage this information and can make it available to each storefront. What Else?  Our marketplace is designed to save consumers in excess of 400% of the marketplace fees that are presently charged by competitors.  Why would we do this? Because for the market to grow it requires capital. Let’s face it – if there is no money to be made by CONSUMERS then how can you expect the market to grow?

Numerous technologies designed to reduce costs and significantly broaden the market are in development stage and will be added as they become available.
