This will de-clutter your page so you only view items that needs attention. This can be applied to the following pages:
- Successful Listings (see screenshot below)
- Archiving is advised when successful listing have been paid, shipped, and customer feedback sent.
- A reason not to archive would be to List a Similar listing with the same information that was used.
- if you accidentally forget to do either and would like to retrieve the order, simply select the Archive section in the View drop down.
- Archiving is advised when the invoices have been marked paid and shipped.
