Pro Tips for Shipping Comics

One of the best features in ComicBase is that it make it really easy to sell your comics on Atomic Avenue. But once those orders start rolling in, it’ll be up to you to pack your books so that they get to their new home in the same condition they left yours. With this video, we show off some helpful tips to make the shipping process a breeze.

System Update: Wish Lists!

The wish list feature in Atomic Avenue just received a big update, allowing you to see all the new matches in one email, and controlling how often the system lets you know when a new book from your list hits the system. For users who had been set up to receive email notifications, the default setting is that you'll now get one big email per day with all the new matches, instead of individual emails every time a new posting comes in with something from your wish list. Combined with the new "Add Wanted Issues to My Atomic Avenue Wish List" setting in ComicBase 2015's Sidekick (under Settings > Save to Cloud) it makes it super-easy to track down those hard-to-find comics you've been searching for.
