How do I get my artwork and/or ebay auctions listed on this site?
All listing activity on www.ComicArtShop.com
is managed from our sister website, www.ComicArtFans.com.
In order to participate in this site you must also be a Premium
Member of www.ComicArtFans.com
and have listed artwork for sale in one or more Galleries
there. Only Premium members can list items in the Classifieds
Search there, and the annual fee is $75/year. Please visit
that site and click the SIGN UP link in the upper menu, review
the Terms & Conditions of that site, then fill out the form
at the bottom of the page. Click the Sign Up link when done
and you will be emailed your login and password promptly.
Once you have an account at www.ComicArtFans.com
there are numerous ways to upgrade your account using either
the links in the Righthand menu, or the Paypal Upgrade links
located on the homepage. Follow instructions for creating

You can also choose to have a sub-folder created for you
to make it easier to share links to your Classifieds Gallery
here at www.ComicArtShop.com
(i.e. http://www.ComicArtShop.com/myclassifieds). To do this,
please Contact Us and request that
we create one for you, and what you would like your sub-folder
to be called. If that name is not yet taken your sub-folder

can choose to not allow a name they deem inappropriate.
Why have my items listed on both sites? Why did you create ComicArtShop.com?
We created ComicArtShop.com as a way to streamline some of
the content at ComicArtFans.com - most notably the items which
are offered For Sale either in the Classifieds or from our
central Comic Art Dealer For Sale search. We also feel that
by doing this we're giving our Premium Members another avenue
to promote themselves and the art they have for sale in their
own Comic Art Shop. Although the same content will
reside on both sites, ComicArtShop.com will only display those
items which are listed as For Sale from ComicArtFans.com (and
not that Premium Member's Gallery items which are not for
sale). ComicArtShop.com will also only feature News and Updates
related to Comic Art Dealer announcements, and Classifieds
Owner Announcements (a new feature being added to the ComicArtFans.com
Admin). As previously stated, only Premium Members
of ComicArtFans.com can display their Classifieds and eBay
auctions on this site.
Once I'm a Premium Member of ComicArtFans.com and have my Comic Art Classifieds listed here, how can I have my eBay auctions listed as well in my personal Comic Art Shop?
From your Admin Tools section on ComicArtFans.com you can
add your ebay UserID from numerous Admin pages. If you have
a question about doing this please Contact
Us. One of the best things about having your own Comic
Art Shop is that you're essentially creating an eBay Storefront
for yourself which at a minimum costs $15.95/month through
eBay, or almost $200 per year! That's a huge savings when
you stack it up against the $75/year Premium Member fee at
Can I link from an eBay auction to my Comic Art Shop?
The short answer is "Yes you can!" However, eBay
does have rules regarding doing this. Let me start by stating
that it makes perfect sense for you to link to your Comic
Art Shop when you want to add a link in your auction such
as "Click Here to View All My Auctions". The benefit
to you is that you will also be showing potential Buyers your
items in your Shop off eBay. However, eBay does not allow
you to link to a page that also shows other items you have
for sale off eBay. The way to get around this is by linking
only to your eBay auctions. You can do this by clicking the
link in your Comic Art Shop that says "View Auctions
Only" and using that link as your link in your eBay auction.
All your Comic Art Shop rooms will be listed in the lefthand
column, so you'll still be able to get Buyers into your Shop.
Also, you can always link to the detailed image you have in
your Comic Art Shop (i.e. Click Here to View a Detailed Scan)
since the detail page doesn't show any other images from your
Shop. If you break eBay's rules regarding this policy and
they discover it, they will most likely shut down your auction
and give you a warning.
