Sold items typically only remain on the feed for ~24 hours. Are you noticing a lot of sold items coming up in your searches? What types of items are you searching for?
Is there a way to filter out "sold" items? If not, please consider adding it.
In answer to your question: "Are you noticing a lot of sold items coming up in your searches? What types of items are you searching for?"
YES - otherwise we wouldn't be asking how to filter it. It's a bit annoying. How does seeing things that are sold help the user who is trying to find things for sale? In many cases I have seen more things listed as "sold" than still for sale (especially over the weekends). Last weekend for example, in the first 16 listings. 9 of them were marked "sold", that is about 60% of the listings at the time. This doesn't help people who are trying to sell or buy.
I just checked the "Free" section of my area (It's Wednesday afternoon). The first 16 listed items - 4 are "Sold" - that means 25% of your listings in that section are irrelevant to buyer and it needlesly burries listing that are still for sale - which isn't helping the sellers. As I said, during busy times like the weekend it's a MUCH higher %.
Love your service, but a better filter would be nice.
