How To Add A Record Shop To VinylHub

Adding a new shop to VinylHub is easy. Here is how it works: 

  • Click first the blue "Contribute" button at the top of the page and select "Add Shop"

  • This will take you to the submission form. Add as many details about the store as possible in order to create the most substantial contribution to the database. Required fields are indicated with a red dot.

On the right side, you will find detailed information regarding the field you are currently filling in.

  • When you’re satisfied you’ve added all the data possible, click Submit. You can always come back to edit or add to your submission later.

You can add an image after your submission is saved by clicking on the "Add images" link below the empty picture frame:

In the image box on the left, click 'Browse' to select an image from your local files, or drag and drop an image from your desktop or a browser window into the VinylHub page. You can select and upload several images at once.

To reorder the images, simply drag and drop.

When you've added all the images you want and they're ordered as you want them, click 'Save' in the top-right. To go back to the shop page, click the shop name at the top-left of the page.

If a record store is similar to the one you want to add to the database, you can create a quick submission using information from that existing store. If you are familiar with submitting to Discogs, it's the same as the "Copy-to-draft" feature.

From that shop page, click the drop-menu next to ‘Edit this Shop’ and select ‘Add one like this’:

Edit the existing data according to the record store you're adding. You may also wish to delete some fields if they don’t apply.

When you’re satisfied you’ve edited, removed and added all the information possible about your release, hit Submit.

Note: Images will not be auto-added when you create a ‘Add one like this’ submission. Please add images of your specific book for your submission.
