It’s really usefull, We will consider to implement is soon.
Apologies if this has been mentioned before, but I couldn’t find any reference to it. When an item has been purchased, the seller should be able to mark the item as ‘Sold’ in their dashboard/admin area. A small ‘Sold’ image should be ideally overlaid on the items main photo, or somewhere prominent in the list, grid and single page view. This facility would be particularly useful for sites where each item is unique.
Once sold, it is pointless (and annoying) to still have people contact you about an item, so it would be useful if marking as sold would also disable and grey out the contact form. Sold items could still appear on a site for 30 days before being archived, this way visitors can see the site is active.
Other classified ad software either has this facility built in, or they have provided the relevant code to insert in functions.php. Either would be fine 🙂
