Ideally, every Database Item on hobbyDB will have at least one Retail Price to start its Price Chart.
Adding a Retail Price is very easy. After navigating to a Database Item's page, click Price Points, then click Add Retail Price:
Fill out the form, entering your best estimate of when the item became available for sale as the "Valued at" date. As prices can vary between different currencies there is no problem if an item has more than one Retail Price in different currencies.
Here is an explanation of the different form fields:
|Currency (if not US$)
|Select the original currency for the Retail Price if it's anything other than US Dollars.
|Price (In that currency)
|Enter the price in the currency selected above.
|Enter the price in US Dollars. If you've entered a price in a different currency above, you'll need to convert it to USD. You can use XE.com's historical rate tables or X-Rates.com's historical data to do this. Be sure to use the exchange rate that was current on date entered for the retail price.
|Enter your best estimate of the date the item became available for sale (not today's date). If you don't know the exact date, use the first day of the month or year closest to when the item became available.
