Help with Bricklink...
Join to comment
I have recently created a Bricklink account, and am finding it HARD TO USE. It appears that you need a separate cart for each store, and the cart empties automatically when you leave the store, and you have to pay separate shipping for each store, and yada yada yada! If anyone could help me out a bit, I'd really appreciate it. Also, if anyone could recommend some well-stocked, reliable store, that would be great. Thanks!

Bricklink isn't one store, it is a place where people can buy or sell lego, think of it as a eBay for lego. The reason your cart keeps emptying, and shipping isn't all the same is because each little store has it's own prices, pieces, and shipping rates. My main point is that Bricklink isn't one giant store, but is a place where you have to buy from one seller, and their are about 2,000 sellers on Bricklink, all from all over the world. So you can't order something from one store, and something else from another, and have it in the same shipping order. Anyway hope this helped, I would recommend Cincinnati Bricks, or I have an order going right now with A Lot of Bricks. These aren't the only good ones though, you have to explore the site...-Dylan

Yeah, I tend to stick to a few select stores because it's tough dealing with the thousands and what they do/don't have in stock.

Two I would recamend are Troys Surplus Legos and Lot's of Bricks.

Yeah, I know. It's like private deals through a website, to make it easier. I need to find a store with lots of fig parts, yet I still have to make an order from "Brickscope," in order to get the old SigKelso's torso. Thanks again.

I'm trying to buy parts in bulk for a baseball park, but it doesn't even show you the shipping price. HELP PLEASE! PLEASE NOTE: I'm buying all the parts from the same store.

You can ask the seller himself with a message. Shipping's cheap when domestic, anyway. If you're lucky, the seller can sometimes send them as posts instead of packages if they're small enough.

If you're in the UK, I suggest A1 or Bricks For U.
