New Search engine, Poll on payment charges, Philatelic exhibition and categories
Mon, 18 Jun 2012
Here is the program of this week's newsletter, the presentation of the brand-new search engine that allows you to look for your items a more precise way.
Then, we want to know what are your feelings regarding the fact that sellers pass on their payment charges to buyers.
We are also happy to announce you the Exhibition of the Philatelic Collection from Prince Albert II from Monaco organized in Bruges, in Belgium.
We'll then talk about the first successful ascent of Everest and finally we'll give you a new tip in our section "Did you know it ?".
NEW ON DELCAMPE/ Some important improvements have been done on the search engine, in order to have more accurate results.
Now it is possible to :
- Look for an item in several categories at the same time
- Do an advanced search, really accurate, under the button "Search"
- Get a translation of the keywords used during your search.
- Get suggestions based on the search done, in order to find even more items in the corresponding categories.
POLL/ On Delcampe, we let our sellers decide if they want to pass or not on payment charges to their buyers. We encourage our sellers to pass on as less fees as possible, or even, not say any, but without obliging them. Furthermore, only the fees which are clearly mentioned in the sales's conditions can be passed on. Nowadays, we'd like to hear what you think of this.
EVENT/ Don't miss it ! A very exceptional philatelic exhibition which will take place from June, 23rd until August, 15th. The collection of Prince Albert II from Monaco will be presented in Bruges in the "Havenhuis De Caese". A temporary post office will be open only on the first day of the exhibition, the 23rd of June for the common issue Belgium – Monaco.
A COLLECTION: MOUNT EVEREST/ 1953 : After several attempts to climb Mount Everst, the New Zealand mountaineer and explorer Edmund Hillary and the Nepali sherpa Tenzing Norgay reached its summit at a peak of 8848 meters.
The earth's highest mountain, located in the Himalaya Mountains, was first observed by the Europeans in 1847. And several years later the first published height of Everest was established. Since the 20's, several expedition teams have tried to climb this mountain.
Everest has been climbed on 29 May 1953. Since then, more than 5000 mountaineers have achieved to reach the summit of the World's highest mountain.
This performance is obviously commemorated in stamps, books and documents. We invite you to discover them in our different categories :
| DID YOU KNOW IT ? ... Let the members know that you are away !
You are going on holidays ? You cannot, for professional or personal reasons, do the follow-up of your transactions on Delcampe? Let the other members know about this in order to avoid misunderstanding.
To inform about your absence go to "My Delcampe" > "Account: Parameters". There, tick the box "Yes" in front of " I'm temporarily absent ..." this information will appear next to your nickname thanks to the small logo which will be added.
If you want to be even more precise about the length of your absence (or your absence itself), you can add a text in "My Delcampe" > "Account: Parameters" in the "Message" section. This message will thus appear in all of your sales and also on your member's page. Please don't forget, to click on "Modify"at the bottom of the page to save your change.
If you are going to be away for more than one week, don't forget to conclude all your ongoing transactions (purchases as well as sales).
If you are a seller, it is possible to close all your sales in order to avoid getting bids you won't be able to accept during your absence.
To do this, you should go to "My Delcampe" > "Sell: Ongoing sales". At the bottom of the page, you should click on "All": all your sales will be selected. Click on "Close" (at the bottom next to "Selected items"). All your sales will be closed in a single action. You should repeat this operation for each page of your sale's list.
Note that if you are membre of the Club+ Gold, you have the possibility to do this operation through the multiple changes. To do this, you should go to "My Delcampe" > "Sell" > "My sales: Multiple changes" and choose the option "Close and restart all my sales". Follow the instructions then.
Please pay close attention to the fact that after 3 months, your sales are automatically archived by the server and cannot be found any longer!
