Buy, Sell, Trade and Auction your Items on PROPbay, for FREE!

Collectors of movie props and wardrobe often are in the need of trading their Items or just selling them to acquire new ones. Besides ebay, options are limited, so here comes PROPbay to the rescue!

PROPbay.com features an environment where prop and wardrobe Collectors can contact each other and build a reputation in the hobby using our feedback tools: The Marketplace.

In order to gain access to The Marketplace, you'll have to fill in some required fields and complete a small transaction using a valid Paypal account, which will be used by PROPbay's Staff to enable your account with access to The Marketplace. Current requirements to gain access to The Marketplace are:
  1. If you don't own one yet, register a PayPal account now for FREE.
  2. Ensure your registered email with us is your primary email address at your PayPal account. Otherwise, please update it accordingly.
  3. Ensure your full real name and location in your User Details match the ones in your PayPal confirmed address. Please note that your full real name and location is visible to other approved users of the Marketplace and PROPbay Staff only.
  4. Complete a one-time $1 transaction in order for the Staff to verify your data. Click here!
Once our Staff reviews your transaction and matches it with your membership, you'll gain access to The Marketplace.


The Marketplace as a Seller

Once approved, you just can browse your own list of Items and mark those for Sale/Trade or Auction by filling the required fields accordingly (ie. sale price/starting bid, if you accept trades or not and what would you like to trade if you choose so). Items listed in our Marketplace will automatically have their default "WARNING THIS ITEM IS NOT FOR SALE" notice changed to a link where the sale/auction is taking place.
Any other user at PROPbay with Marketplace access may reply to your sale/auction request with their offers. You choose which offer suits you best and once you have spoken with the other partner, you may CLOSE the deal with him/her and leave each other some feedback.
You can also Cancel any or all your listings at any time, although we suggest you think twice on it. We keep a count on how many cancelled and completed transactions you have been involved into, and someone with too many Item cancellations may not perform a nice feedback later.


The Marketplace as a Buyer

Browse The Marketplace for current offerings. Use your means to study what you're getting and from who: check his/her feedback profile, ask for Items' provenance, talk in other prop-related forums, etc. then post your proposal in the thread that was just created with the Item details you were interested in.


Leaving User Feedback

After a deal is completed, both parties implied can leave feedback on each other on how well (or bad) the experience was, and encourage other users to do the same. You can leave positive, neutral or negative feedback plus a brief sentence on how was your experience, for others to check in the future. Like similar other Marketplaces, we encorage you to think twice before leaving neutral or (specially) negative feedback to someone. Try to work all other options first including but not limited to email, phone calls and such. Once you leave Feedback, it won't be edited!


Disclaimer

DO REMEMBER: PROPbay takes no part and no liability on ANY of the actual transactions set up on our system. Should any transaction go wrong and fraud is committed, you're required to contact your local/national/federal fraud bureaus and act accordingly. We just give the Marketplace users tools to build a solid reputation and a way to contact other hobbyist to keep their collections growing.

Screenmatch: the Ultimate prop/wardrobe experience!


Owning props and wardrobe from your favourite films rock, but screenmatching them takes you to the nirvana! Nothing beats the sensation in this hobby when after a few minutes, hours or days you find a match on your grail pieces!

PROPbay.com features a specific filter called SCREENMATCH where hobbyists and enthusiasts can quickly filter and find any item screenmatching the one seen on screen. It's a pillar and one of our key features, hence the requirements for an item to be considered screenmatched are VERY strict.

In order for your Item submission to be considered a perfect screenmatch, we just need ONE picture, preferably of a bluray scene capture (DVDs are also welcome but HD is way cooler!) showing your Item picture on the particular scene you've screenmatched it, and surrounding the matches using circles, squares or whatever makes you feel better. We need as much resolution images as you can provide, and you can play with your brightness/contrast or even hue controls in your preferred image editing software so we can clearly see your screenmatch.

The following showcase some examples of valid screenmatching images:





Additional examples and explanations can be found on the following links:

One of a Kind: Item Uniqueness (even if it can't be screenmatched!)


Sometimes, screenmatching a certain piece is impossible, due to the age, damage, external unwanted weathering or any other factors.

However, collector has researched Items provenance and (s)he has found out the Item is UNIQUE. No backups, copies, heros or stunts were made, JUST ONE. And that one is the one we see on screen...even if we can't screenmatch it!

This is where our "One of a Kind" Filter comes handy: collectors can enable their Items as "One of a Kind" if they know for sure there was only ONE made for the production in question. This filter is UNMODERATED, so user's reputation may be affected if Community finds out (s)he's... well, lying or omitting facts, so we advice you to do propper research before listing an Item as ONE OF A KIND.

Feel free to browse already listed One Of a Kind Items in our database for more examples.
