The best way to get a feel for what HobbyDisplay can do for you is to check out what some of our Hobbyists have done already!
One of the great things about signing up for HobbyDisplay is how easy it is! While you do not need to make an account on HobbyDisplay, you will need to have a Google account to edit your Google Sheets spreadsheet and a PayPal account to make recurring annual payments.
Due to the high level of customization we provide our Hobbyists, please allow between 24-48 hours after signup for your account to go live.
HobbyDisplay is in the process of providing an option for users to host their images directly on HobbyDisplay! We know there is a lot of frustration out there with many image hosting sites like Flickr, Imgur, Photobucket, etc. when it comes to having the ability to share your images on message boards. You won't have those problems with HobbyDisplay!
Editing Your Spreadsheet
Everything you edit in your spreadsheet will be reflected on http://www.hobbydisplay.com/username/. When you first sign up, you will see a few sample entries in your spreadsheet to give you an idea of how this works—but please replace those entries with your own stuff!
Your Google Sheet has tabs across the bottom that you can edit to customize and update your HobbyDisplay pages, including: Database, CategoriesAndSubcategories, Profile, and Collections. Take a look at each of these, make some changes, and then refresh your HobbyDisplay page to see the changes take place almost instantly!
At this time, HobbyDisplay currently does not charge anything more than our monthly service fee. That is, there is no transaction fee for any sale facilitated on HobbyDisplay! Please use your profile page to update your contact and payment information so that buyers can reach out to you to make a purchase.
