Changing FOR SALE to SOLD

When you sell something on SD (FOR SALE) is considered bad form not to mark the item as SOLD when it is.
FOR SALE items have a red marker.
When it's SOLD you can change this to a blue SOLD marker.

For example, here is a RH/LH conversion stock I am selling...

To change this to SOLD .. Click on the three dots on the right .... which is the "More options" button and a menu drops down.

Click on Edit thread
Another box appears ...

Click on the blue "SOLD" button ...

Which changes the title to "Sold"
Click the "Save" button and it's done ...

As the seller you are the only person who can change this - which you can do at any time.

It's very easy and saves others time and frustration reading through a thread and sending PM's to find out the item is sold.

However, once changed to sold the thread is locked, so it's quite a good idea to leave it as it is for a day or two after the transaction is completed to give the purchaser time to post thanks and feedback.

Not any more, it’s up to the owner of the thread!

Mark as sold when money recieved. Just copy & paste into another add if it falls through. Then we'll be viewing live salable items, not just in case ones.

Many thanks for the advice on this. I really tried to work out how to do this when I sold my first item on here earlier this week so edited my post to say it had been sold in the content. Will do it correctly now, cheers, Martyn.
