DETAILED VIEW

98%

98% finished

The detailed view page is a real novelty amongst collector’s databases and a quite exceptional tool.

Maybe you’re only interested in the common name and series descriptor – or do you need to know every available detail of a figure?

No problem at all. The detailed view is highly customizable. You can redefine the layout so that the amount and order of displayed attributes match your demands exactly.

This can be used by all types of accounts.

OBJECT OVERVIEW

95%

95% finished

At the moment the object overview is capable of listing your objects sorted by attributes.

But selection based on attributes is not sufficient for us and we will be enhacing this overview so that you will be able to choose from a large number of operator selections. You’ll further be able to query tailored data from the database and to save these queries for future use.

This can be used by all types of accounts.

PRESENTATION

70%

70% finished

Based on the queries from the object overview you can design your personal presentations, and publish them by sharing a simple internet link.

You’ll also be able to show your collection as it is actually physically-displayed at your home (home presentation).

CB-supporter, CB-supoorter II and CB-premium users will be able to create an unlimited number of presentations. CB-free and CB-light users will be limited to one presentation.

SUPPLY & DEMAND LISTS

79%

79% finished

Most collectors use these or at least have seen them on forums or Facebook: Supply and Demand lists.

The advantage is obvious. These lists can be shared amongst interested parties, they show what a collector is interested in and what the collector can offer, and they are for free. However, as we all know, it can take some time and effort to create them and it can be a chore to keep them up-to-date.

COLLECTORBASE.net takes this chore away and creates these lists fully automatically. Each change in your collection will be reflected in the lists immediately. All you have to do is publish the link.

This is how the CB-supporter II version will start.
Over time more and more functions and tools will be added, all of which will be available to CB-supporter II.
More information on the upcoming functions for the CB-supporter II can be found at CB-premium.
As you can see in the price table there is only one difference between CB-supporter II and CB-premium … 8 EUR per year.

CB-free

For small collections or maybe just because you want to try out the system before paying.

Ideal for testing

CB-free is perfect for testing out the collector’s database. With a capacity of up to 50 objects, you have the opportunity to test all functions and features, and see if you want to work with COLLECTORBASE.net.

If the collector’s database passes your tests, you can upgrade to an unrestricted account with ease, and therefore go on to maintain your complete collection.

More than a collector’s database

It doesn’t matter if your collection is small, COLLECTORBASE.net still has much more to offer than simply the database function – not least, being linked to your fellow collectors, presenting your collection  in a professional way, and showing your focus in collecting.

These elements are already part of CB-free and there will be much more when COLLECTORBASE.net is fully fleshed out. As soon as the COMMUNITY and MARKETPLACE will get online the options will increase significantly.

For small collections

Small collections generally don’t need a complex database to keep track of them, but it can still be useful to record the details – not least for when the collection grows! That’s why we came up with the CB-free account, where you can keep track of up to 50 objects while using all features of the CB-premium version.

No hurry while testing

It’s always a tough choice to decide on a collection tool. You have to plan to put quite some effort into entering your collection items, even more so if the objects are not already recorded. We know this all too well, because we have experienced this ourselves, multiple times!

That’s why we offer you as much time as you need to test the collector’s database thoroughly. Though the CB-free version is restricted to 50 objects, there is no limitation on the usage time.
No hurries, no worries.

CB-light

CB-light concentrates on the core functions

You have access to the supply and demands lists and you’ll have the default presentation style.

Strictly speaking that’s all you need to maintain your collection and therefore the optional features of CB-premium are not really necessary, so CB-light does not have access to budget manager, the calendar, customizable statistics and a few other features.

But that does not mean it is less capable. You can manage any number of objects and customize the user interface as it suits you.

Auction assistant

This tool works best with the marketplace and will also serve your supply and demand lists.
It will scan for objects that match for those in your wishlist. In accordance with the budget manager it can place – noncommittal – bids. If the bid is accepted by the seller you will be informed.
If you’re the seller the auction assistant will collect offers from other users and present them to you.

Calendar

The calendar will hold your appointments and forward business. You can track your preorders.
You can also manage lent objects and their return schedule, which – for example – is  especially useful for books. All of this will be displayed neatly arranged.

In conjunction with budget manager it can show you the amount of money you may spend on a given day. And if you don’t want to know in detail – just switch off this option!

Later on in combination with the marketplace, the calendar can show the movements of your sold or bought items.

Budget manager

Do you keep track of your spending? And even more important: do you know your liabilities for pre-orders? And what’s your current budget for the rest of the month? Maybe you want to save that amount of money every month in advance. Maybe a release date will be postponed that will have an impact on your financial planning.

The budget manager will calculate all this. At a glance you can check your balance or see the savings plan that you might follow. It also takes your sales and purchases into account. The budget manager never loses track of your personal finance. Most information it needs is taken from the database.

Customizable interfaces

CB-premium gives the term ”user interface” a new meaning. Indeed, it is now a user’s personal interface.

Each user can configure the menus to their own preference, and  can create and organize their own graphs. There are (almost) no limitations.

Statistics

You’ll be able to create your own statistics, tailored to your needs and you can place them anywhere you want.

There will be more than pie charts. It’s completely up to you what numbers you want to see in your graphs.

Supply and demand lists

On social media, such as Facebook, and in discussion forums, there are groups or areas dedicated to trading collector items.
It’s much easier with COLLECTORBASE.net lists than with postings or PDFs that need constant updating. You may publish your lists in the form of a link and it will always show the up-to-date content.
Sounds too good to be true – but it’s true.
CB-premium not only allows the creation of one plain list, as with CB-free and CB-light, as you may create lots of lists containing distinct objects to address different groups of trading partners.

The trading function does not ask for any extra fees.  However, please be aware that COLLECTORBASE.net only helps in connecting matching trading partners. COLLECTORBASE.net is in no way responsible for problems or claims that arose from trading between two partners.

This list of features could be extended, for example with the ‘lend’ function, so you’ll never forget any lent item.

But the most important message is: Development of COLLECTORBASE.net will continue and be ongoing. We will not stop.

As soon as we are through with the basic implementation we will turn to your wishes and feature requests. We want to take advantage of the knowledge of our valued users.

It’s you who will help improve and extend COLLECTORBASE.net.
Your feedback is most precious to us!
