hobbyDB and The Toy Peddler Join Forces

Today we are very excited to announce that hobbyDB and The Toy Peddler will be officially working together as one. We’ve known Paul (the founder of The Toy Peddler) for more than ten years and over the past 18 months, he’s seen how hobbyDB continues to improve as a resource for diecast collectors. When Paul started The Toy Peddler, he had a mission to create a platform that was better than eBay for both buyers and sellers and we know by combining forces, we will now be able to do this. We bring the tech, and Paul brings 20 years of sales knowhow.

It used to be just George (Paul’s tech guy) and Paul and now we have combined to create a larger team – Alex, Anastasia, Andrew, Chris, Christian, Dayne, John, JP, Mario, Parker, Rob and Paul and George! This is a decision that we are both very excited about as we will now have the resources and larger team to make big moves forward and to do this. We’ll be looking to you for feedback for what would make your life easier when you buy and sell diecast.

100,000 new items for sale coming to hobbyDB!

Please note that both sites will continue to operate individually as we reach out to buyers and sellers to see what improvements are most important to them. No changes will be made to The Toy Peddler until we receive this essential feedback.  

Even more exciting is once we have received your feedback, buyers on The Toy Peddler will gain access to all of hobbyDB’s inventory, doubling the number of items for sale and sellers’ items will eventually be listed on both marketplaces, doubling their exposure to potential customers.

Eventually by combining forces, we’ll be able to utilize the ease of hobbyDB collection management and the power of The Toy Peddler marketplace to create a one of a kind resource for collectors worldwide.

I would like to welcome everyone from TTP to hobbyDB. I have been selling on hobbyDB for over 2 years now and I am extremely happy with hobbyDB. I never sold on TTP, but I was a buyer on TTP since March 9, 2009 with well over 5,000 transactions, so I do know many of the Sellers on TTP. I also know why the sellers on TTP left eBay, Fees and you will be happy to know that on hobbyDB you only get charged when you sell an item, there is NO listing fees! I have been selling online since 1997 and my main complaint was always listing Fees, seemed like all the sites that charged you listing Fees did almost nothing to help you sell an item. At hobbyDB they are there to help you sell and want your sales to be the best possible, mainly because hobbyDB only benefits if your Sales are good, unlike those other sites your Sales matters to hobbyDB. I look forward to all you being on hobbyDB and if you need any help please reach out to me, I would be glad to help.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
