Happy Monday everyone! As we posted last month the Web Team has been busy with an array of different project and fixes. One we’d like to highlight is our effort to clean up Marketplace listings. We’ve had many of you give us feedback on absentee store owners who cannot offer sales support for their products. You also told us there were older products which were still in demand even though the Merchant hasn’t been currently active. Keeping all this feedback in mind, we had undertaken a cleanup sweep of the marketplace in the past, and had very positive response. Today, we have taken a second one:
If the Merchant hasn’t logged in in two years *and* a specific product hasn’t sold in 1 year, the product will be unlisted.
If the Merchant hasn’t logged in in two years *and* the store hasn’t sold anything in 1 year, their store will be disabled.
This means that if a product has sold within the past year, that product listing will remain available on the marketplace. If a store has products, which have sold within the past year, it will remain enabled.
We are confident that a more relevant selection of products and search results will benefit the shoppers on the Marketplace, as well as active Merchants. Spring is in the air!
