Dear members,

For the constant improvement of our services, maintenance of the website will be conducted this Tuesday, February 17th, between 23:00 and 24:00 (Brussels Time, UTC/GMT +1:00).  The website will thus be inaccessible during these hours.

For the convenience of sellers and buyers, the closure of the ongoing sales will be postponed for 24 hours.

Thank you for your understanding.

Kind regards,

Your Delcampe team

Be smart and hold on to tomorrow's collector items!

The new year is usually a good time to do a thorough spring cleaning. Last year's calendar, letters and varied and miscellaneous objects have been sitting on the living room chest of drawers or in the garage for several months … Many will end up in the rubbish bin.

Before cleaning up, ask yourself one question: Will these items acquire value over time? Could they become rare? Remember how many telephone cards, first euro coin series and old newspapers you got rid of too soon? A number of these items prized by collectors could have been sold on Delcampe!
Sort through everything!

Not sure? Go to the forum!
We have the results of our two 2014 year-end contests!

Our happy winners each won a €100 purchase voucher (or 150 CAD/120 CHF/125 USD/80 GBP/150 AUD) for the Delcampe website.

Our congratulations to our quick and discerning members.

Difficulty receiving emails alerting the end of a sale
Fri, 6 Feb 2015

Dear Members,

In the period between 3pm (Brussels time) on Thursday and 10:30am on Friday (today), the emails alerting the end of a sale WITH bids have not been sent.  Sellers did therefore not receive these e-mails in their private e-mail, nor did they receive the copy in "My Delcampe" > "My Messages" > "My Sold Sales".

In order to correctly follow up on their sales, we invite sellers to visit "My Delcampe > "My Sold Items" > "To Invoice", and to sort the list by the most recent.  This way, they will be able to easily find any items that were sold during the period in which they did not receive an e-mail alert.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.
