Listing your items on our site is extremely easy. Not only does CollectTolkien.com give you some great benefits but the prices are hard to beat. Customers are offered four great pricing options for each type of listing (Want Ads and Auction / Store listings). The "Pay per Listing" option allows you to pay for individual Want Ads or Auction / Store listings each time you place one on our site. Other options let you place 10 items at once. If this enterprise proves sucessful, then dealers will be able to take advantage of the "Subscription Based" options (not yet in use) which allows you to sign up for a subscription to CollectTolkien.com and place as many listings as you want during your subscription period (contact us for details).

Help with choosing a plan; (OPTIONAL)
Choose the Hobbit / Orc plan if you are only selling 1 product or collectible at a time, or in total, and seek only the "Standard Duration Listing".
Choose the Dwarf / Troll plan if you seek to sell up to 1 product or collectible at a time, and seek the "Extended Duration Listing".
Choose the Elven / Ringwraith plan if you seek to sell up to 10 products or collectibles at a time, and seek only the "Standard Duration Listings".
Choose the Wizard / Balrog plan if you seek to sell up to 10 products or collectibles at a time, and seek the "Extended Duration Listings".
Standard Duration or Extended Duration;
Choose a Standard Duration for 30 Day listings. This may be more appropriate for Auction Listings that do not use the "Buy Now Only" feature.
Choose a Extended Duration for 60/90 Day listings. This may be a better choice if you seek a specific price for your product / collectible and do not want to take any less. You can simply choose the "Buy Now Only" feature and set your price like a store, instead of an auction-like environment. No outcome is guaranteed.
It is recommended that you use your own photos. Keep the size reasonable or you may have trouble uploading them depending on your connection speed.

Why Want Ads?
You have very little to lose by placing a few Want Ads on CollectTolkien.com. It may be the best way to let someone in the world know you are looking for what they have. REMEMBER: THIS IS A MIDDLE-EARTH / TOLKIEN SITE ONLY UNTIL STORE FRONTS ARE ALLOWED.
Each Listing, whether Want Ad or Auction, gives you the ability to display 1 free photo, with a limit of four total photos. All listings are subject to administrative approval for content. Any attempt to list innapropriate material (Adult Content, Bad Language, etc) will be denied and the administrative cost of removal of your inapropriate listing is equal to your cost in placing the listing. No refunds will be issued. The administrative cost of a refund is ten times the cost of a listing, the point of this site is to provide a low cost option for you, no person should want to see prices rise. Extended Duration listings will cost you more, but the extra time comes at a discount compared to the first 30 days. Happy listing!
