SHOPATRON ORDERING SYSTEM
We participate in the Shopatron ordering system through the Shop Now Section on our web site at www.masterpiecedolls.com
The dolls in the Shop Now section are from past collections and are available at some of our retailers based on what they still have in inventory.
We post the new dolls in this section when they arrive at our retailers so that collectors can use this system to more easily locate the dolls for purchasing.
If you are not familiar with Shopatron you can contact them at www.shopatron.com to join as a Masterpiece Dolls Retailer so that when a collector orders a MPDoll, the system can select you as the closest retailer to fulfill the order.
Starting with the February Group of 2013 arriving at the end of June, we have set up UPC codes that you can enter to sell the dolls on Amazon.
The code numbers to use are listed in the UPC CODES section on the front page of our web site.
We will continue to post UPC codes on all new dolls before they arrive so that you can list them on Amazon.
Masterpiecedolls has a Facebook page where we post photos and new information on an ongoing basis for our collectors and retailers to see and enjoy.
"Like Us" on Facebook and you will be automatically advised of new posts.

CO OP ADS
For US retailers, we have a Co op Ad that we include in the Dolls Magazine for every regular issue date. The Dolls Magazine reaches over 35,000 collectors.
We send out a mailing to all US retailers before we complete each ad to offer space to be listed as a MPD retailer in the ad. A retailer can reserve for all issues in advance or be part of the group that is selected on a first come basis since we have limited space.
The ad and these retailers are then posted on our web site.
With each new program we offer collectors a chance to get the #1 doll of their Pre Order purchase from one of our retailers.
The details are posted in the section labeled #1/350 on our web site.
Once the winners are selected, the participating retailer is advised before the dolls arrive so they know where to ship the #1 doll.
The #1 reshipper is marked with black tape around it for easy recognition when it arrives.
Since many of our collectors like to re-dress their dolls, we have posted in the Size Chart the different children's clothing sizes for each particular size doll.
We also have contests on our Facebook page for those who like to photograph their Masterpiece Dolls based on the theme of the contest.
For those who would like to know more about how our dolls are constructed or how to change something on the dolls, we have videos and lots of information in the Doll Care Section.
