    The last couple of book preorders I've had with Amazon.com have been very late to ship, despite being available for purchase and listed as "In stock". Am I the only one ?

    I had one order a few weeks ago from co.uk that said 'dispatches immediately" but it took 5 days to ship.

    Nope. They've been late on some books with me as well.

    Even on books that aren't pre-orders, I've noticed it taking an extra day or two to ship from Amazon.ca. I think they are actually delaying shipping a bit to make sure non-prime free shipping orders aren't arriving as quickly as Prime orders, lol...

    That's how it was shipped from US to UK by Amazon. No protection, no damage, so why bother.

    Hi guys,

    After a bit of advice from the community!

    I have been selling sections of my massive comic collection on ebay for a few years now, as I upgrade to Omnibus formats. I have never had anyone question the quality of my sold comics or books (nearly all bought, read carefully once, bagged, boarded and stored in the dark), so I list as NM for the most part. Someone has bought my old X-Statix collection and immediately come back requesting a return for the following reasons:
    "After checking the comics, 27 of them have either obvious spine wear, creases coming from the spine, marks on the cover, damaged corners or the inside pages of the comic sticking several centimetres out from the cover. With this in mind, these 27 comics are not in near mint condition as listed."

    So he's claiming 2/3's of the comics I sent are apparently in pretty poor condition, which I will have to argue is untrue. However, it's the last point that I really need advice on - "the inside pages of the comic sticking several centimetres out from the cover."

    Firstly, I will assume in my response he means millimetres, not centimetres - if it were cm, it would be visible from the listing photo and I'll reject his claim outright.
    Even if he did mean mm though, my experience is this is quite a common occurrence in comic manufacturing and this is the state it came off the line in, which I could not have done anything about. So my question to you fine people is this, IF the comic covers were slightly narrower than the page length (at manufacture), does this significantly effect the grading?

    Here is the link to the auction if anyone fancied a look:

    Thanks in advance for any advice / info.
