The Account Types of
Which account is the right one for you?
We are constantly developing COLLECTORBASE.net Our current range of functions is already more comprehensive than you know from other collecting data bases.
In the following you can read what we have and parts of what we are planning for the future.
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.
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.
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
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.
CB-accounts – price table
This is a feature overview for the collection database accounts and the costs per year. You will see that the fees are very reasonable.
It was our objective to make COLLECTORBASE.net affordable for anyone, and this should be possible with these values.
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 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.
