Greetings from Crave!

March is heating up, and we’re rolling out updates to keep up. First off, the April seller contest is off to a great start. It’s not too late to join in! Remember that the latest series as well as custom figures and lots are now easy to list. Next up, we just released the Seller Storefront which allows fans to view everything your favorite seller has listed on Crave by going to their profile. As usual, you can find our newest and best priced listings below!

The April Seller Contest is in full swing!
We had so much fun running a seller contest in March that we are doing another one for April. This time the rules are a little different, and we have 3 prizes for 3 categories:
1. The seller who sells the most listings wins $100 to Amazon.
2. The seller who grosses the most amount of money wins $50 to Amazon
3. The seller who sells the most expensive single item wins $20 to Amazon
Note: A single seller can only win one prize. If a single seller wins multiple categories they’ll get the bigger prize and the other category will go to the person in 2nd.
Click here for more details on the contest!

New products on Crave:
With the catalog editing tool the Crave catalog is being updated all the time! Recently we added a ‘lot’ product and are starting to create custom listings:
Lots: For users who want to sell groups of items or entire collections in one swoop.
Customs: For users who use parts to create their own unique figures click here and then click ‘Edit Catalog’ on the right above the products. Input the information you have on your unique figure and we will create a new product page for it. If your custom is an upgraded version of a canonical character list your custom under the product that formed the basis for that custom.

Crave User Testimonials:

“Thanks to the staff for replying to my question so quickly so I could buy the product I wanted. That’s why crave is the best transformers buying site I know.” – Jesse Gullett

“I never had a repeat customer in hundreds of sales on auction websites and have had about a dozen returning buyers on Crave in just 75 listings. This has shown me first hand that there is something special about Crave. I no longer have any plans to sell Transformers elsewhere as long as you guys are around!” – Craig Chappell

The Seller Storefront is here!
Now it’s even easier to see what popular sellers have listed on Crave. To view a seller’s storefront, just click on a sellers profile photo or name. You’ll immediately be able to see everything they have available. You can check out one of our most prolific seller’s inventory by clicking on the image below!
