I am a Noob and still learning how to navigate around the site. Just started collecting. I have made a few purchases on EB and on ebay. My question is, to help contribute to tracking the accuracy of all information about trades, sales and etc. is there a way to submit this information? Or do volunteers and administrators do the research themselves and update it periodically?

Community maintains enters the data

Might not be allowed to enter as a newb
not sure

Ebay sales are easy
enter the item number and it grabs it

Various opinions on private sAles
mine is to enter only prints I sell
not buy
or else double entry could occur etc

As mentioned, you can add ebay listings (both in progress and completed) by entering the Ebay Auction ID into the "Add Auction" box on any listing's For Sale page
e.g. http://expressobeans.com/members/detail ... 054/trades (middle right above the lower grid)

For non-ebay transactions, typically it's on the seller to record their sells. So ideally, whoever you purchased the print from would record that transaction. If you know for a fact they're not on the site, or for some reason they're not going to enter the sell themselves, then you can enter it as the buyer. Just mention in the Note/Comment field that you're recording it as the buyer
e.g. "Sell recorded by buyer"
So it goes...

Hi! Noob here... ;) If I want to enter a purchase, do I enter the total amount I paid (incl. shipping), or only the price of the print? I purchased a print in an FB group for $65 plus $35 shipping, so shipping had a big impact on the price I paid.

Hi! Another noob here. If I made a purchase and want to enter the price on EB, do I add the total amount including shipping, or only the price of the print? In my case I recently bought a print in an FB group for $65, but paid $35 shipping on top of that. The shipping had a significant impact on the price, so in my opinion it would make sense to enter the total amount including shipping. Right?

Ya can add it as a note, but not to the actual price ya paid for the print. Don't be a nub.

On the “Sell or trade item” window, you could always add it in the “Note” field before pressing “Sold at price shown”.
