The best Price Points are confirmed market transactions where hard cash gets exchanged for a collectible. However, it's often hard to find such transactions, for example for prototypes or items that are just very rare. In these cases, a User Estimated Value is helpful, particularly if the user making the estimate is knowledgeable. Here's a great example for a one-off Hot Wheels car:



User Estimated Values are also helpful if a common item gets added to the database. Like Retail Prices, they add a base price point so that the item is added to a member's total collection value. Here the member doesn't have to be very experienced as these are relatively common items. An example would be this Comic:



You can add User Estimated Values by clicking on Price Points, then Add User Estimated Value on a Database Item page. If you made a mistake adding a User Estimated Value you can go to the Curation > Dashboard > My Price Points and edit or delete it there.



Note:  

  • As soon as a market transaction such as a hobbyDB, eBay or Auction House Price Point gets added to the Database Item any assigned User Estimated Values will be excluded from the calculation of the Item's Estimated Value.

  • Do not add User Estimated Values to Database Items that you have an economic interest, i.e. items you are currently wanting to sell on hobbyDB or elsewhere or items that you made yourself.
