We’re happy to announce a new collaboration with Rebrickable.com. With this update, Rebrickable pages will provide links to BrickLink stores that have the complete or partial inventory for the respective set, MOC, or part viewed on Rebrickable. A few select stores opted in to this affiliate scheme previously for a monthly fee, but we are now offering this service free of charge to all existing and new sellers.

For BrickLink Sellers only: All sellers are opted in by default, allowing Rebrickable users to add your store items directly to their shopping cart. To opt out of this feature, you must deselect the Rebrickable option at the bottom of your Store Settings page under “Affiliation Settings.” (Note that the store tagline is what visitors will see next to your store listings on Rebrickable.)

When you receive affiliated orders, you will see the message "First batch of this order has been referred by rebrickable.com" at the bottom of your order detail page.

We’ve also implemented the following feature upgrades in order to make the integration as seamless as possible:

1. Add to Cart functionality

Users can choose a BrickLink store to buy from and add items to cart in one click.

To do this, click “Add to Cart” next to the store you want to buy from, then proceed with checkout. Each part and its correct quantity will automatically be added to your cart, but you are free to modify it before checkout.

*Note that if you already had items in the store's shopping cart from a previous session, the items may still be there and merged with this new session.

“Add to Cart” is also supported in the Multi-Buy feature on Rebrickable. Multi-Buy helps you locate the cheapest parts if a single store doesn't have 100% of the parts you need. It will automatically select the most appropriate parts for each store based on the filters you choose.

2. Add Parts to your Wanted List

Users can add their missing parts to a new or existing Wanted List

To do this, click “Add to your BrickLink Wanted List” (screenshot above), and log in to BrickLink as prompted.

* Choose an existing Wanted List from the dropdown or make a new one. Note that adding parts to a new Wanted List will create a new Wanted List in your BrickLink account.

* You may need to enable pop-up windows in your browser.


3. Import BrickLink Orders to Rebrickable

Users can import previous orders placed to their Rebrickable parts list.

To do this, sign in to Rebrickable, go to My Rebrickable My Parts, then click on “Import from BrickLink Orders/Inv (Web API).”

Select the order(s) to import, then click Append or Replace. “Append” will add items you selected to your parts list. For example, if you append twice, and you had 10 parts in your order, 20 parts will be added to your parts list. “Replace” will replace the part count with the one you imported. For example, if you replace twice and you had 10 parts in your order the list will still just have 10 parts.

Noooooo...
The end of me, dominating certain listings!

More seriously - excellent news. The auto-add to shopping cart feature is the
most welcome addition. I am sure it will make all the difference.

Thanks!!

Heads up sellers - do some spot checking and see if your shop shows up. I spot
checked and I did not show up more than I did. I reported to BL and Rebrickable.
Please do the same if you do not show up.
Other than that...great new feature.

Hey!
Nice new feature! But there seems to be a problem with lots with bulk quantities
above 1. I noticed that our stock appears in the listings only if the bulk qty
is set to 1, so only the more expensive items you may buy individually from us.

I hope this is only a bug and not a feature. I think this is quite important
to also implement that in this cooperation, as it now shows a very distorted
and incomplete stock of BL. I know this is more relevant to us than the average
sellers, but the bulk qty is a good selling tool and should be included. We dislike
the intransparency of "lot limitations" and until these additional buyer fees
are implemented functionally into BL, we will likely stick to bulk quantities.
(Or until the nice tiered pricing is visible on all instances like on the buy
pages and in the price guide, of course!)

Thank you for your consideration!

Kind regards

Magnus from Magic Magnus
