Maybe I've missed it, but there doesn't seem to be a way to sort through BGG's expansive marketplace by seller's country. This would be a helpful feature, as shipping is a major factor in purchasing decisions. Sometimes I want to find a game that I can buy secondhand but only pay domestic shipping or, better yet, pick up in person.

Anybody else? Is it do-able?

Is it already done? blush

Cheers,

David

I was just thinking of suggesting that yesterday. If someone's not in the same country as me, using the same currency and able to ship without costing an arm and a leg, I'm not interested. So I don't bother looking at the marketplace at all, since I don't want to waste time trying to hunt down the ones I'd consider buying from.

The Coat of Arms of Clan Montgomery - Scotland. Yes, that's a woman with the head of a savage in her hand, and an anchor. No clue what it means, but it's cool.

Allow a search of the marketplace by game title, rather than just by a title's first letter.

And yet, it still hasn't been added. Perhaps if we keep asking someone will finally get the message.

Since BGG makes money (3%) off every sale, you'd think they would have an interest in making the marketplace as user friendly and searchable as possible. My experience is that it's the complete opposite. I would love to browse the marketplace more often, but it's futile.

A huge improvement would be a simple filter for country, state, and while I'm dreaming, a radius around my zip code.

Some day....

They have the message - they have acknowledged many times that the marketplace is running on some of the oldest code on the site and is serious need of an overhaul. However it's a big project and they have limited resource.
