Seller Central for Collectibles - Updated for March 2005

Hello Folks,

The collectibles category management team has just recently updated our Seller’s Central section for March 2005. The Seller Central section of eBay gives you an insider's view of the latest selling information and trends to help you build your business.

Whether it is tips from successful sellers in our “In the Field” article or seeing what collectibles are selling well in our “In Demand” section, we think you will find this information very relevant and interesting. If you have any suggestions for new articles send an e-mail to collectibles_newsletter@ebay.com


Let me know what you think!!

Thanks,

Shane

Hmmm, interesting - but ultimately trivial. It's hard to satisfy us comic book collectors since we all have such diverse tastes and needs.

Hello, all.
I am a first time seller, though I have bought many items on E-Bay and have been collecting comic books for years. I am selling one lot of Conans (listed as Savage Sword of Conan, Conan comics), and I am wondering why my listing is not coming up when I do a search. I have tried searching with both "conan comics" and "savage sword of conan."

I can search on it just fine. Perhaps you are in an incorrect subcategory?

Maybe...I'll have to check that out. What one should I be in? I thought searches went by the name of the item.

They do, but if you are in the wrong subcategory that effectively prefilters your auction out. I show that auction as:

Listed in category: Collectibles > Comics > Magazines > Other Magazines
Also listed in: Collectibles > Comics > Other Comics

So as long as you are in "Collectibles > Comics" you are fine, but if you dive down deeper and are not in either "Magazines" or "Other Comics" you won't see the auction.

Looks like 36 people have viewed the auction, too, so I assume you're OK.
