New Site Feature: Save it, Hide it

New Site Feature: Save it, Hide it

Suffer from choice fatigue? Yeah, us too.

When you’re looking for, let’s say, a used iPhone 6 for AT&T in mint or good condition you’ve got a lot of choices on Swappa. More than 50 devices today to be exact. We know that can be a little overwhelming. So we wanted to offer some simple solutions to easily like or hide listings as you are browsing. Simple addition, super helpful.

Oh, I like this one. Saved.

Since we don’t have a traditional shopping cart on Swappa, we wanted to give you the chance to create a short list of devices that you are considering, in the form of a save button.

When you are reviewing a listing and it meets the criteria for a device you’d want to buy, click the save button. It’s that cute, little heart to the right on the listing page that you may have already noticed.

The save button will turn green and the listing will be added to a curated list of saved or liked listings. And you can keep browsing for iPhones.

From there you can review the listings you’ve saved by clicking on the saved tab. This will make it a lot easier to compare and contrast a smaller number of similar devices at a glance.

Listings will remain in your saved list until you remove them, or until they are purchased by someone else. Which is pretty likely to happen…so don’t think too long.

Nope, that’s not it. Hide.

You know what you like and what you don’t like. Not a fan of gold phones or need a device that can be shipped internationally? You can easily hide the listings that don’t fit you’re needs with the hide button. It’s the no-ish sort of symbol thing to the right (below the heart).

The listings you hide will no longer appear in your search results. You can easily view and unhide listings as well. So, all is not lost if you happen to change your mind.

And that’s it.

Quick, easy additions to make shopping for used phones on Swappa a little easier.
