Gear Swap “renew” option to put unsold items back on top of list

@septimiusLocale: Changes Often
Just like with craigslist it would be nice to be able to place an unsold item (with at least a 10% price drop) back on top of the list. As slow as Gear Swap moves now it wouldn’t hurt one bit either. Simply program the forum to where you can’t renew any sooner than a week. It varies with craigslist from 48 hours onward. The way things are now an item gets buried if it doesn’t sell quickly. Of course an item can still be found in a search, however it’s not the same. That’s exactly why craigslist offers the “renew” option. Just a thought. I’m very grateful to have access to Gear Swap in any fashion though.Jun 15, 2021 at 7:19 pm #3718830William JohnsenBPL Member
I agree with Monte there should be some way to ‘bump’ a listing when you drop the price after it’s been up a while. While it’s easier to search, listings get buried faster now because you’ve requested that it be only one item per listing and there aren’t as many per page.Jun 15, 2021 at 11:27 pm #3718903MarcusBPL Member
