Website Features

  • Started an experiment with providing recommendations at the bottom of sellers’ store pages. This experiment shows some buyers recommended items for sale by the seller they are viewing, based on the buyer’s collection and/or Wantlist.

Bug Fixes

  • Small fixes to language and character counter in the “leave feedback” window.
  • Corrected an issue with the “random item” feature on collection and Wantlist pages showing the same 2 or 3 items repeatedly for each user.
  • Wiped out a bug in which some shipping policies with a minimum subtotal were reflected in the cart, but not on the main marketplace list-of-items pages.
