What Is The Quicklister & How Do I Use It?

The Quicklister - available under "List Item For Sale" from the Marketplace drop-down in the top menu bar - can help you find the items you wish to sell in our database. There are two ways of doing so:

Manual search

You can input the information of your release into the text fields. The more generic you are in your search terms, the more generic your search results:

The more details you add to the search fields, the more likely you'll find the specific release you're trying to sell:

Once you've found the release you'd like to sell, click on the result:

Fill out the details on the right side of the page as you usually would when listing an item for sale. Be sure to include Media and Sleeve Condition and Price, then click the green List For Sale button when finished. You're all done!

Using a CSV file

From this page, it's also possible to match a personal CSV file with Discogs database release IDs, to help post large inventories for sale relatively quickly.

To start, please make sure that the file you are uploading is encoded as "UTF-8". 

The Quicklister will only recognize specific column headers. Your CSV must contain only the columns and headers listed below, with headers formatted as shown in the example at the bottom. If you are including a different column or field, or format, write the headers differently, the Quicklister may not be able to recognize the information needed to match your item with the database.

This video will also explain how the Quicklister works:
