How To Find and Match Items

Whether you know the name of an item, or its identifier, or just how it looks like — if it exists in our catalogue, then there’s always a way to find it there. Or if you have a ready made list of items you’d like to purchase, we have a tool to match them to products from our catalogue, too. In this guide we will show you how to do all of that.

There are three different ways to find a required product on our website.

Let’s go through each of them in turn.

If you know the identifiers or names of the items you are after, then it’s easy to find them in our catalogue by simply searching for them using the search bar located at the top of every page.

As you type the search query, you will be presented with the most relevant results.

The search results list will contain the most relevant products from our catalogue with brief information on each of them. Click on any product to go to its page, or click “View all results” to see a list of all products matching the search query.

Each product page contains the product’s image, its name and a palette representing all available colour variations for that specific product. It also conveniently displays all known alternative product and colour identifiers and the current stock quantity.

To add the product to the basket, specify the required quantity in the corresponding field (a total price for that quantity will be calculated and displayed right away), and click on the “Add to Basket” button next to that field.

Parts Matching Tool

If you want to find items for a particular set, which you have a specific parts list for, then we recommend using our Parts Matching tool, which will take care of matching the parts from your list with products in our catalogue.

This tool accepts the following parts list formats:

  • Rebrickable CSV
  • BrickLink XML
  • BrickStore BSX
  • LDCad Part Bin Group PBG
  • GoBricks XLSX

To begin, drag and drop your parts list file onto the file selector area, or click on it to browse for the file on your device. Once the file is selected, click on the “Upload Parts List” button.

After the parts list is uploaded and processed by our system, you will be presented with a list of matched (and possibly unmatched) products with an in-depth information about price and availability of each of them. We request stock amounts directly from GoBricks right at the time the parts list is processed, thus ensuring that you receive the most up-to-date stock information.

If certain parts from the list are out of stock or cannot be matched, they will be indicated as such.

At the bottom of the page you will be presented with a summary box containing information on the items’ match and availability quantities and percentages. We will also show you the total cost of all selected items.

The selected items can be easily added to the basket by clicking on the corresponding button beneath the summary box. Alternatively, you can add all items from your parts list (including unmatched and out-of-stock ones) to a wishlist to be able to access and manage it directly on our website.

Browsing the Catalogue

We conveniently distributed all products among various categories, so if you are not sure which specific item you are looking for, but know how it looks like, then you can simply browse our catalogue to find it.

Begin with navigating to a relevant category.

You will be presented with a list of products belonging to that category, with name, price range and available colours indicated for each product.

Click on a colour tile beneath a product to instantly switch that product’s colour, or click on the product’s image or its name to navigate to that product’s page.
