How to Manage Your Discogs Inventory While You’re on Vacation

It’s summer! While vacation looks a lot different in 2020, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take some time off, even if it’s just for a nice little staycation. If you’re a seller in the Discogs Marketplace, here is a quick guide that will help you and your potential buyers while you enjoy some much-deserved R&R.

Temporarily Expire Your Discogs Inventory

Expiring your current inventory is a quick and easy way to “close” your store while you’re away, ensuring there are no items for sale while you’re not actively shipping items or managing your stock. When you’re ready to return from your staycation, you can simply reactivate the expired inventory. Every item will be immediately re-marked for sale.

How to Expire Your Discogs Inventory

  1. On your Inventory page, scroll down to the With Entire Inventory section. Click “Show Actions.”
  2. In the Status section, click “Expire All For Sale Items.” This will remove your listings for sale while keeping the data intact. Draft and sold listings won’t be affected.
  3. Click “Run Bulk Actions.” All items that were previously marked for sale will now be showing expired.

How to Reactive Your Discogs Inventory

When you’re ready to relist your items for sale, repeat the above steps, this time by selecting “Relist All Expired Items.” You’re open for business again!

Watch our video tutorial or refer to our Support page for more detailed instructions on how to complete this process. This will ensure that you can spend your time away from the Marketplace worry-free.

If you have any questions about this process or need assistance, let us know. We hope you have a great rest of your summer and look forward to seeing you back on Discogs after you’ve had a nice break!
