There’s a reason why circuit books are one of the most popular services at the APS: we keep your material moving constantly and put it in front of interested buyers. There’s a lot of demand out there – for the last 25 years, APS circuit sales have not only stayed rock solid, they’ve increased! People still consider circuits a valuable resource. The job of the dedicated APS sales staff is to turn your inventory around as quickly as we can so buyers can see it. As soon as a circuit comes in to the APS, chances are that it’s going out again within a week or three days. That means that individual circuit books are being seen by more and more people while in the APS inventory. Not only do we keep material moving, but we also constantly re-evaluate our categories of philatelic material based off of buyer demand, in order to consistently show buyers the material that they’re interested in. Some of our specialized circuit categories – global pre-1940, pre-Elizabeth II British Commonwealth and many more – were created due to customer demand for that specific material.
How do we make this all work?
We rely on YOU, our StampStore and Circuit Sales customers and APS members, to give us the information we need. If you have an interest in a specific collecting area and would like to see a circuit category in that specific area, let us know!
Stay in contact!
What can you do? The first thing is to keep your contact information up to date, and provide information for an alternate contact person. If you are receiving circuits and the APS has no record that a circuit has moved for over 30 days, we will contact you to see if there is a problem that prevents you from mailing it on. If we can’t touch base with you, we will reach out to your alternate contact person. We also use this information to return unsold material to sellers and send you the proceeds from your sales. Email your updated information to email@example.com or mail it to APS Sales c/o Contact Information, 100 Match Factory Place, Bellefonte, PA 16823.
Possible circuit category changes
We are consistently reviewing our circuit categories to best serve buyers and sellers. Currently, the Sales Division has fifteen individual Latin American country circuit categories. However, due to a lack of material from sellers in these categories, many haven’t gone out to members in over a year. As a solution, we are exploring the possibility of combining these individual country categories into the more general Central America, South America and Latin America circuits. If you have material in these categories and would like to begin selling, here’s your sign that there is demand in this area! For current members who collect these individual country circuits, we would appreciate your feedback about the possibility of combined area circuits. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to share your thoughts.
