Listing Help Tips: Search failure; allowing offers

Post by geneknives » Thu Sep 24, 2020 8:00 pm

Yesterday I submitted a new listing. It appeared in my account with an item number;
however, it could not be found from “searching members stores”. ::facepalm::

Inspecting this listing under “Edit”, I discovered that in the frame “Select category/manufacturer”,
both fields were incorrect although, to my recollection, I never selected either. ::shrug::
“Category” displayed “Not a knife related product”!
I corrected both category and manufacturer field and submitted the edit.
This resulted in successful searches immediately. ::tu::

Another problem is email offers on non-offer listings. If an Buyer offers through AAPK email without offers allowed in your listing, then no invoice can be generated. :( Also, this offer via email only does not display under offers in the Seller dashboard.
Offers can only function when “Make offer” is included in the listing; therefore, I have begun allowing offers (Make Offer) in most listings. ::handshake::

I hope this helps, especially for new members such as me.
Please see my listings under “geneknives”. 8)

If someone emails you with an offer, just ask them to wait a minute while you change the setting on the knife and then have them submit an offer on the system. That works too.
