Posting Your Items for Sale
To sell your items on Atomic Avenue, use ComicBase to inventory your items, and mark all the items you’re interested in selling as "For Sale." If you have a current subscription to ComicBase, they will be priced accordingly the latest market value and each item's condition. You can also set your own prices in the Selling Price field.
You can use the Mass Change command to mark all the inventoried items for sale. You can also use the Mass Change command to mark all your duplicates for sale: to do so, set the Minimum Quantity field in the Mass Change command to 1.
To post the marked-for-sale items on Atomic Avenue, you will use ComicBase’s Sell command underneath the Internet menu. The window that appears requires your Atomic Avenue User ID and Password.
You have the option of automatically repricing slow-selling items. If you check this option, Atomic Avenue will automatically reduce the price of items you have had for sale for more than a month by 5% of the original price, down to a minimum of 50% of the original price. You can adjust these figures anyway you wish, to change the degree and speed of the discount. This will affect all the items you have for sale. If you want to apply a discount only to selected items, you can change the Selling Price field for those issues within ComicBase and repost them with the Sell command.
If you are required to charge sales tax, whether only within your state, or on shipments to anywhere within the U.S. check the Collect Sales Tax box, and enter your tax rate in the tax rate box. Atomic Avenue will automatically calculate the sales tax on relevant orders.
You have the option of listing all your VF and NM items as being in the condition "VF-NM." This option spares you from having to examine all your NM inventoried comics for miniscule defects which could irritate a particular buyer. To do this, simply click the List VF and NM comics as condition "VF-NM" box. If you do not want to grade your items, you may used the Ungraded grade.
Once you’ve set your options, simply click the Sell button and ComicBase will post your marked-for-sale items onto Atomic Avenue. You can set the Sidekick program that comes with ComicBase to remove items you have sold from your ComicBase inventory and to periodically repost your inventory to include added items and updated values. You will receive a confirmation notice from Atomic Avenue that you have posted items for sale.
If you want to make any changes to your inventory, such as removing issues you’re sold, posting additional comics, or changing the condition of comics you have for sale, make the changes within ComicBase. Once you’ve done so, use the Sell command and click the Sell button in the Login window. This will update the information on all the comics you currently have for sale; it will not create duplicate listings. If you change the selling price for an item in ComicBase, your new price will appear on Atomic Avenue.
Note that the Sell command is not issue specific. If you use it, it will post all your items that you’ve marked for sale.
Your internet connection will have to be active while your items are being posted to ComicBase. Allow up to ½ hour for any postings or changes to appear on Atomic Avenue.
