what to do with SOLD items

Recommended Posts

I am an artist and I sell paintings on my website. I have a page for each category of painting (art on canvas, art on paper, etc). I also have a "sold" product page because i want people to be able to browse my entire collection, including paintings that have sold.

My question is, should I leave the sold items in a Product Page or should I create a gallery page or some other type of page for those? I think they shouldn't be in a Product page any longer because I want to eliminate the "cart" feature (as they are no longer available for purchase). It would be ideal if I could just move them from the SOLD page to another page, but I cannot see an option to move items from a Product page to a Gallery page. I don't need/want any navigation from these images, I just want people to be able to view them. I am currently using the Supply template.

I agree, it's great to include sold items on the site as it shows more of your portfolio. I'd argue that in some circumstances it can also help to include some sold items on your main store page because it helps with the illusion of scarcity and can accelerate demand.

I don't suggest that you 'move' them to a Gallery. It's better to keep them as products as you can take advantage of product features like the ability to zoom into areas of the painting, show multiple images (unframed, framed, and so on). You could also add some code to hide the price and the 'add to cart' button on the sold items.
