Would be nice if there would be an 'Apply Set' feature, similar to Apply
Order. Manually entering the set number would be ok.

Seems that Rebrickable.com does it.

  Hi,

As a seller I sometimes have trouble with deciphering some buyer adresses. Specifically
with international shipments to foreign countries I often need to contact the
buyer for what is what.
I was wondering if it would be possible if Bricklink could show something like
an adress template in the orders like mentioned below, so that it's clear
what is what instead it shows all the Adress info without clarification.


Jack Brick
Legolane 100b-2
12345 Legocity
Baseplateregion
Legoland



Name:Jack Brick
Street: Legolane
Housenumber: 100b
Appartment:
Floor: 2
Zipcode: 12345
City: Legocity
Region: Baseplateregion
Country: Legoland
Etc.....

With kind regards,
Chris

The address should be normalized, as to the standards of the postal authority
that handles the destination country. Having said that, there are a small number
of physical addresses in the USA that do not receive direct mail delivery. They
are instead given a free PO Box, and have to collect their mail there.

Very much support this!

I run into this quite often. Not only here, but also on the other site.

It should not at all be difficult to program since what's displayed on your
screen is the value of a database field connected to it. Just add the name of
the field (perhaps modified to make it more understandable) as a label.

Most international shipments are now done by preparing a label on the website
of your shipping agency and they require exact information for many fields, which
are different from country to country.

Also: make a telephone number mandatory for buyers: I need to enter a
telephone number for shipments outside of the EU. For Postnl I can also enter
an email address but this may be different in other countries.

Agreed! I was a bit over the top about this on this thread, but others had a
more rational discussion about it.

Yes, it's done badly.

I fully agree with this, it's even pretty simple to do technically since
the opposite is done currently. Instead of removing tax from the full amount,
it could add tax to the part amount.

On the Mass Inventory Upload page, the first dropdown under "Consolidate Lots
By Using:" is:

New Price and New Tier Pricing

Can we get that separated into two dropdowns? I want to set a new price but leave
the old tier pricing.

Or maybe there can be a verify page, like the second page of parting out
a set, where I can see the current tier pricing and make the changes as needed
if the new price is lower than the current tier price?

Seller tool changes please?

Thanks for considering this.

it says [Sort By] = 'Item name' as default selection, but actually the

I'm sorry, Im not using the Classic Wanted List Search page¹ which has the
correct sorting order displayed in the search form like you describe.

The problem lies exclusively with the New Wanted List Search page² which doesn't
display the sorting order before you actually search, and I can confirm parts
aren't sorted by Color after Item Name, see attached screenshots.

Not sure if you would know the answer but was there a reason for these to be

Every other 1-piece "minifig" I've seen was catalogued with the part number.
Would make them much easier to find.


I tried to have them assigned the part numbers, but the catalog admins would
not accept my requests.

  Proposal for extension of the catalog.

I think there is a very big market for monochrome minifigures. So far, these
are considered custom items.
I would like to suggest establishing a separate category for monochrome minifigures
in the "standard version" of all colors.

For example "Minifigure Monochrome - white".

I look forward to your estimation and feedback

I vote no. These are custom items, and should be listed as custom items. You
can search for custom monochrome minifigs easily enough. People seem to be charging
big money for them too.

So please keep them out of the regular minifig listings.
