"Epic Collectors focuses on giving subscribers identities on our network. With a store, a collector should be able to operate it freely, not working around the rules and fee structures of the site hosting them," said Will Reese, a senior developer at Epic Collectors. "We want to promote trading and our community with a good service." Web stores hosted by Epic Collectors allow unlimited numbers of listings, unrestricted by per-item fees or time constraints within the duration of the account subscription. Only Paypal costs apply to transactions.
Businesses competing with Epic Collectors like eBay exact flat per-listing charges and take a percentage from sales. "Private collectors shouldn't have to pay for hundreds of listings that aren't guaranteed to sell quickly. Big sites like eBay are good for small numbers of expensive, easy-to-sell items. For everything else, our subscription structure is much more profitable and accommodating to sellers. Its good for the entire collecting community when it means that people can make whole collections public," stated David Wasson, Epic Collectors project architect.
Collectibles sold on Epic Collectors range in type from trading cards to comics to memorabilia. Sci-fi universes including Star Wars, Star Trek, and Battlestar Galactica and fantasy ones like Magic the Gathering, Pokemon, and Yu-Gi-Oh! are available to buy and sell. Epic Collectors employs a tag-based organization system so users aren't limited to predefined categories, potentially allowing any number of different product universes. Epic Collectors provides customizable inventory management tools, including a spreadsheet importer and exporter, and a unique web address for subscribers' stores.
