    Will our collection info transfer over to this new app or will we have to re-enter everything in to it?? I have over 400 items so I’m really hoping everything will transfer over. 🤞

    Your collection is still safe with us. Nothing major changes on the PPG side. Funko will now use our data to power their app. The choice is yours to keep your collection with us or with Funko. We offer several features, including marketplace integration, for example, that won’t be available in the app. Please let us know if you have any other questions or if we can assist in any way. Thanks! Happy Pop! Hunting!

      Oh! I see. I read the article as you were merging the PPG site/app in to Funko’s new app but that’s not what’s happening. They’re using your pricing but everything else is separate. Got it. Thank you for clarifying that.
      I’m staying put right here. I input my items as I buy them. I can’t imagine searching for and inputting 470 separate items in to their app. lol.
      I think I reached that conclusion because I read yesterday that Funko’s new app IS merging with Stashpedia and anyone using Stashpedia would automatically have their info put in to Funko’s new app.

      Unfortunately, we are merely supplying the price valuations for Funko, so we can’t provide much of an answer for downloading their app. We recommend reaching out to Funko directly, as they’ll be in a better position to answer those questions. Best of luck and thanks for visiting PPG!!

    Your guys pricing is never right. I see POPS consistently selling for either more or less than what PPG is valuing them at.

    • March 6, 2019 at 10:23 am

      They add the lowest price and the highest price then they divide by two and that’s how they get their price.

      Saying it is never right is not accurate, sure it’s not perfect but it’s good as a general guide. Does it have all the recent sales data? No, and where is it coming from? Ebay, which is the most widely used website for tracking 3rd party sales figures. It doesn’t factor in Mercari, or other apps similar to Ebay. People who regularly resell know to use other resources to figure out what items are going for.

      You can draw comparisons with cars and Kelly Blue book, if all you do is rely on KBB… your expectations will never be met.

      The prices are based on 30, 60 and 90 day medians (the most recent sales are weighted more heavily) to produce a more accurate conceptualization of the value as it exists over time. If an item is trending upward in value, the most recent sales will usually be higher than the estimated value, which is probably what you’re noticing. Evaluating the price in this way keeps it from spiking or plummeting due to outlier sales.

      So basically what you are saying is the PPG is showing the average of what pops sell for lol Also like comic books, pops are only worth what people are willing to pay for them

      • March 10, 2019 at 10:49 am
        Permalink

        “like comic books, pops are only worth what people are willing to pay for them”

        Very true, but the PPG values are based on what people are willing to pay because the algorithms calculate what people having been paying for the Pop. As a former manager of a comic book store, I know this is much different and more accurate than the presumed values listed in Wizard or Overstreet – values that were always much higher than what people were actually paying.

  • March 6, 2019 at 9:27 am

    The pricing is “suggestive” as to what the market is trending… an average of sell prices. It doesn’t mean the world has to follow that when selling items. Again… PPG as well as other sites providing this style of service, it’s an average of all sells that have occurred, not what is actively priced.

    One thing I wish they could implement is the cost including shipping as there are some that low ball on bids and overprice on shipping costs to offset. Lowers the average cost of the actual pop as the pop cost was partially figured into shipping costs before the bid occurs.

    • March 7, 2019 at 10:49 am

      Cost should NEVER be implemented into value – considering that cost is far to varied. I’m a Canadian collector, so the price I pay to have items shipped to me, is far greater than a US based collector. Does that mean MY collector is worth more….because I paid MORE in shipping?

    • March 7, 2019 at 10:57 am
      Permalink

      Shipping should NEVER be applied to values. As a Canadian collector, I pay more in shipping (and customs fees) than say, a US collector. Does that mean MY collection is worth more? No – there are far to many variables when it comes to shipping (and it’s related costs) to ever be a feasible idea.

  • March 6, 2019 at 9:52 am

    They average every sale they find. Take the highest selling pop they see throughout a bunch of sources, and the lowest. It’s not perfectly accurate but its there

    One thing I never understood about the valuation is why only eBay unless I’m wrong.

    • March 6, 2019 at 11:40 am

      We track sales across a multitude of platforms. eBay generally has the most listings, which is why it tends to dominate the valuations. You can get a peek into how we track our prices by clicking on the link here. Thank you for reaching out.

    Question, when will this be integrated into the app? I have the beta version of the Funko app on my phone, but it doesn’t seem to have pricing just yet, just basically a boring list of the Pops you own.

    This is GREAT news!!

    My biggest question is – who’s pricing is going to be used? If Stash is being loaded to the Funko app and now PPG is being loaded to the Funko app…..who’s gonna be accurate?

    I’ve seen HUGE fluctuations over the years between PPG and Stash – and I’ve always preferred PPG’s pricing model, that’s based on solely on tractable sales.

    What now confuses me….is who’s information is going to be used on the Funko app – Stash or PPG?!? O_o

    • March 7, 2019 at 1:29 pm

      PPG will now supply the estimated values for the Funko app. But we will remain an independent resource for Funko items. As for the name of the app, we’re not exactly sure on that, yet. We’ll have more information when the app is officially rolled out. Thanks so very much for being a part of the PPG community!!

    will you ever make an Australian version of ppg? I assume you could just slightly alter your algorithm to search .com.au instead. Even just a button i can use to switch between would be useful. I only really use ppg for the number of pops i’ve got and the news, so this would help me a lot. Thanks.

    Who will be adding the newest items to the app’s inventory – Funko or PPG? I have found that PPG almost always has an item listed before Funko. I’m still waiting for Funko to add many common Pops and Pez to their app. You would think it would be the other way around.

      PPG will simply be providing Funko with pricing, for now. The PPG inventory will remain an independent resource. We try our best to expedite any new items to our catalog, after all, we’re usually excited to share them with everyone.

  • March 10, 2019 at 6:16 pm

    Values should be based on what the Pops trending selling price is. Not how much it has sold for in the past. In my opinion, PPG is never correct. This is super disappointing.

    Hi I’m happy that you’ll be providing the pricing. I will still use your service to since I have over 13,000 Funko items in my collection. It would take a long time to re input all those items. I have a question will you ever have a feature where you can add multiple quantity of a pop instead of having to add each one individually would make things alot was It. I am so grateful for everything your team does this is such a valuable resource for the addicted collectors out there. Thanks again

    So basically the new funko app is the old Stashpedia app they bought out last year? Or have they yet to release the app on iOS. Either way I use ppg and stash. Stash is little more user friendly. But you guys update new funkos way faster. I’m still waiting for stash to put pops on their list that’s I’ve owned since Christmas.

    What is the agreement between PPG and Funko that allows them to use your price information? What compensation/benefit does PPG receive, and what measures are in place to keep PPG pricing independent from Funko? Please don’t take this as a passive-aggressive accusation of bias or shenanigans. I strongly believe full transparency is in the best interest of PPG, Funko, and collectors. Thank you.
