Selling Tips

  • Include images with every item - BrickLink has images of most items in the catalog. You can use either the images provided by BrickLink or you can upload your own custom images.

  • Provide detailed descriptions for sets - specify what condition the set is in, how many pieces are missing, if the set comes with original instructions and original box and what condition they are in. Use the extended description box to describe your set as much as you can and include as many images as you want.

  • Store Terms & Shipping Policy - Describe your shipping fees and the timeframe how long it takes to ship out your orders. Describe any additional fees such as a handling fee in your store terms & conditions.

  • Store Inventory - stock up on as many unique elements in large quantities as possible.
  • Store terms - be sure that your Store Terms Shipping Policy are clear and not too strict.

Seller Tools

  • PayPal - Accept credit cards through PayPal and send and receive money online.

  • Shipping - Calculate shipping from and to anywhere in the world: USPS, UPS, iShip.com

  • Exchange Rate: XE.com

  • Advertising - Posting sales announcements in the discussion forum may not mean increased sales. In July of 2009, 5 out of 10 featured sellers did not post any sales announcements in the discussion forum in the past 6 months. Google advertising seems to have worked for some top sellers in the past.

  • Featured Groups - Designate lots to feature that you want visitors to notice upon visiting your Shop.
