Manage Your Collection

You can easily manage your collection at hobbyDB. Learn how to view your collection, edit an item, and delete an item in less than 5 minutes. 

Viewing Your Collection & Managing Your Wish List – 

If you want to marvel over your hard-earned collection, simply go to the drop down menu on the top-right corner of the page. From the menu, go to “Collection”. This page will show you every item in your collection and will give you an easy place to manage your collection – from here you can search your existing collection, put any of your items up for sale, and even delete whatever items that are no longer in your collection.

You can even use this drop down menu to view and edit your wish list, manage your profile settings, and view any messages you may have concerning pending transactions. 

You can make a Wish List of items that you would like to add to add to your collection by clicking the Add to Wish List button. This feature has a great benefit when you are shopping. If you are looking for a very specific variant of an item, The Wish List is perfect for you. Your selection applies to a particular variant of a model, not just the whole category. For example, if you are looking for a yellow Matchbox Ruff Rabbit with specific wheels and red interior and clear window glass (as opposed to other combinations) the Wish List will alert you for that exact model.  

Editing a Collectible – 

Once you have added an item to your collection, you can edit its record. All fields are editable. To do this, click on the collectible and scroll down to the Actions section on the center of its page. Click the Edit button there.

This will take you to a page where you can change any or all of its data fields. You can add, delete, or modify your information as needed. You can also upload additional photos of your item. When you are finished editing, click Save to return to the collectible’s record.  

Deleting Your Collectible – 

You can delete a collectible from your collection if you no longer have it or added it by mistake. To do this, go to My Collection using the upper right side menu. Make sure you are in the field that says Currently in my Collection. On the right hand side of the screen, you will see a Delete link by each collectible;

Users cannot delete an item from the catalog entirely. If you see an item that is a duplicate of another item, for example, you can click the Flag button, then mark the reason, and someone at hobbyDB will look into it.
