How to update your currently listed items

Select the action you would like to perform on the selected items:

      1. Delete - Completely removes the selected items from your inventory and the Marketplace.
      2. Mark For Sale - Changes the status of the selected items to "For Sale" (available for purchase).
      3. Unlist - Changes the status of the selected items to "Draft" (not available for purchase).
      4. Edit - Allows editing of:

How to filter your items for sale by status

You can filter your items for sale by status using the Status dropdown menu on the right side of the page. Here is a breakdown of the different item statuses:

  • Draft - Items can be listed as "Draft" by clicking the "Unlist" button. Drafts can be edited, but are not available for sale on the Marketplace. Drafts can be listed on the Marketplace by clicking the "Mark for Sale" button. You may also click next to the listing to highlight it, then choose "Delete".
  • Expired - Items marked as "Expired" have been manually suspended from sale in the Marketplace, using the Expire all For Sale Items option.
  • For Sale - These items are currently listed for active sale in your marketplace.
  • Pending - From time to time, Discogs rolls out a mandatory product update which sellers must manually adopt. Another reason could be that the Discogs Marketplace may no longer be available in your region. Lastly, please note that a temporary hold period will be put in place for new sellers to ensure the integrity and intent of all new accounts. For more information, please review Why Are My Items Showing As "Pending” In My Inventory?
  • Violation - Items marked as "Violation" have been reported by other users as violating some part of listing guidelines. Guidelines on common reasons for listing violations can be found under Listing Violations.
  • Suspended - When items are marked as "Suspended," it means that your account has been suspended and all items are currently removed from the Marketplace. You may need to contact Discogs Support by filing a support request to discuss the suspension.
  • Sold - These items have been sold through your marketplace. You can click next to the listing to highlight, then choose "Delete."

Note: Prices marked with a 2018-12-19_12-17-47.jpg indicate that the listing may be priced too high, based on sales history. The median value that is displayed by default, from the Edit view, is updated weekly. To pull the most up-to-date sales history for an item click on the "More" link.

How to run bulk actions

At the bottom of the Inventory page, you will see a small section titled “With entire inventory.” Select “Show actions” to expand this section.

From here, you can expire your inventory to take it all offline, estimate shipping weights and item quantities, allow or disable offers, and adjust the prices of all items in your inventory.

Prices can be increased or decreased by a specific percentage or amount. This action will update all items in your inventory that aren’t in Sold status. 

Once you’ve entered your desired action, select the “Run bulk actions” button below. This action will take a few seconds, depending on the amount of items you have in your inventory.

Remember that if you have adjusted your prices by a percentage, and if you want to go back to the original price, you will need to recalculate the correct % to apply. For example, if the original price is $100 and you provide a 15% discount, the new price will be $85. To bring it back to $100, you will need to apply a 17.65% increase (100 / 85 = 1.1765).

Note : The listing date will be updated to the date that you relist your inventory. This can occur when the inventory is back from a temporary offline period or after a marketplace suspension. If you have trouble working with the new listing dates, we suggest sorting your inventory by Location notes and/or the Private comments.
