Become a Member of Books & Collectibles

Become a member of Books & Collectibles, the Australian Internet Bookshop, Antique and Collectible listing service, where your books and collectibles will be available to a world of collectors and browsers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

We have a facility whereby you can pay a commission of 15% of the price of the books or collectibles sold, rather than pay the yearly or monthly fee, this is especially suited to dealers who do not sell a large volumes of stock through our site. If you wish to avail yourself of this fee structure we cannot provide the two month free listing. We will send you more details when you register if you intend to pay by commission.

If you would rather pay a fixed monthly or yearly fee: (All figures are in Australian Dollars):
For less than 1,000 listed items $25.00 per month or $250.00 per year.
For more than 1,000 listed items but less than 4,000 items $40.00 per month or $400.00 per year.
For more than 4,000 listed items but less than 10,000 items $50.00 per month or $500.00 per year.
For more than 10,000 listed items but less than 25,000 items $65.00 per month or $650.00 per year.
For more than 25,000 listed items but less than 40,000 items $80.00 per month or $800.00 per year.
For more than 40,000 listed items by negotiation.
As you can see by paying yearly you get 2 months each year for free.

The cost of joining Books & Collectibles for collectibles listing service is free if you list books on our site and pay the monthly or yearly fixed fee.

If you only list collectibles, the fees are (in Australian Dollars):

For less than 100 listed items $10.00 per month or $100.00 per year.

Note: if you list both books and collectibles then you will be charged at the rate of either books or collectibles whichever is the larger, and receive listing for the other for free.

Members can also list their books wants, which will be checked against the total database on a daily basis, and when a match is found you will be immediately notified. Wants listing is free.

Members who have their own home page can have links to their data on Books & Collectibles, and can have unlimited subject categories, catalogue searches and full stock searches, of their stock only. We can keep the same look and feel of their home pages with the provision for matching headers and footers on the search pages. The secure ordering and shopping trolleys are available for orders from your home page. These searches are automatically updated when you refresh your stock with Books & Collectibles. Home page search and secure ordering links are free.

Members who do not have a home page can have us build a set of pages for them, with search and secure ordering facilities. We will build these pages and transfer them to your ISP where you have access for additions and modifications. These pages start from as little as $300 Australian dollars, visit and for an example.

Members who do not have a domain name can have us register their choice of name, and then park your domain name with Books & Collectibles, then provide web forwarding and email forwarding to your web pages and current email address. This service starts at $50 Australian dollars per year.

For your uploads we can accept any form of data from any source, providing it can be imported into the online database, all you have to do is send us a sample and we will customise the upload facility to suit your particular data. Maintaining your data is a simple matter of uploading replacement data at your convenience. Word processing or HTML files are not suitable as by nature we cannot differentiate one field from another, the best is a database export and a free one is available from the link on this page for download to your computer.

Books and Collectibles can now accept files sent to us from Book Router.
Briefly what Book Router does for a small fee is, you send one file to Book Router and they will send that file onto all the internet bookshops that you are registered with.
Saves you the hassle of uploading to the different sites, as you will only upload to one.

If you wish to use Book Router there is no need to send us and initial file by email, just advise us that you will be using Book Router.
