v23.0: Get comic values from CovrPrice!

October 4th, 2022

This is it, the big Launch Day of the CovrPrice integration!

As of today, you can get comic values from CovrPrice inside your Comic Collector software!

How to get the CovrPrice values in your software:

Here’s what you need to do:

1. Subscribe to the CovrPrice UNLIMITED plan, linked to your CLZ account

To get access to the comic values from CovrPrice, you will need a subscription to the CovrPrice “UNLIMITED” plan (US $6.95 per month or US $60 per year).

To subscribe, use this special CLZ/CovrPrice Sign Up page and follow the steps there to 1. create an account, 2. pay for the Unlimited plan and then 3. link your CLZ and CovrPrice accounts.
Don’t forget to use the “CLZ2022” coupon during payment for a US $4 discount (expires on Oct 12!)

Already a COVRPRICE Unlimited subscriber?
Then here’s how to link your accounts:

  1. LOG IN to your CovrPrice account at https://covrprice.com/
  2. Then use this link: https://covrprice.com/access-tokens/ and follow the 3 simple steps.

2. Make sure you have an active subscription for Comic Collector

if your Comic Collector subscription has expired, then you will you need to renew your subscription first. Here here’s how to subscribe:

  • Go to the CLZ Shop here
  • Now LOGIN with your CLZ Account (very important!)
  • Then at the top, under “Comic Collector”, select one of the payment options:
    • Pay monthly, for US $2.95 per month, auto-renewing
      (only available if your subscription expired less than 6 months ago)

    • Pay yearly, for US $29.95 per year
  • Finally, click “Proceed to checkout” and complete the payment.

3. Update your Comic Collector software to today’s version 23.0

  1. Start your currently installed version of Comic Collector.
  2. Choose “Check for Updates” from the Help menu.
  3. Click “Update Now!” to proceed.

4. Remove your old GoCollect values (if any)

In the new set up, the values in the My Value field will OVERRIDE the CovrPrice values, so before you can see CovrPrice values in your app, you need to REMOVE all old GoCollect values from that My Value field.

Here’s how to remove the old values using the Edit Multiple tool:

  1. From the Series folder panel on the left, choose [Your Collection] to go to your full comic list
  2. Click menu Edit > Select All
  3. Click menu Edit > Edit Multiple Comics
  4. Go to the Value tab and check the box in front of “My Value” (the box turns red)
  5. Click OK to confirm

If you have manually entered values in that My Value field, e.g. from doing your own research, then you may want to keep those for now. But please note, that for those comics, the CovrPrice values will NOT be applied. Any value in the My Value field will always OVERRULE the CovrPrice value.

5. Finally, choose Update Values from the menu!

Now, to finally get the actual CovrPrice values into your software, from your entire collection, use Update Values from the “CLZ Core” menu!
TIP: CovrPrice is providing fresh values continuously, so to keep your values up-to-date, regularly run Update Values again, e.g. daily or weekly. Each time you do, you will get a nice report of which values have changed and by how much!
