How do I mark an item as sold?
With the release of the My Transactions feature, the buyer can indicate that they have paid for their items, and the system will mark them as sold. Here's a guide for buyers on how that works.
If the buyer does not use this feature or your items sold outside VarageSale, you can still mark your items as sold. Here's how to mark your item as sold. Sold items will be automatically removed from the system after they have been in sold status for 7 days.
** Please note ** It is important that you assign a buyer to your items, so they will show up for you and your buyer in your My Transactions view. Also, assigning a buyer is how both seller and buyer get the sale counted towards their Top Members progress.
