Buying your favorite collectibles

Four steps to taking home your favorite collectibles.

There is nothing more exciting than finding that precious item you’ve spent years looking for. Now you can buy your favorite collectibles from other collectors just like you on hobbyDB. However it’s important to note that not every item on hobbyDB is available for purchase. Since hobbyDB is a user-generated catalog, it is the collector’s decision as to whether they want to list their item for sale.

Step 1: Search for the item you wish to buy. If the item is for sale, you will see a for sale ribbon on the top right hand corner of the item’s image.

Step 2: Once you click the image and go to that item’s page, simply click on the blue “buy” button to add the item to your shopping cart. If you are finished shopping, feel free to checkout right then and there. If you would like to add more items to your shopping cart, then click “continue shopping.”

Step 3: When you are finished shopping, click the blue checkout button found at the bottom of your shopping cart page.

Step 4: On the next page, you can select your shipping zone for the items in your cart. Check out our FAQ section for details on shipping cost and zones. When you have selected your shipping zones, click the Pay Now button, which will take you to a payment processing site hosted by PayPal. From there you can finalize your address and payment method by selecting either pay with PayPal or pay with debit or credit card.
