The introduction of the mixed group feature to allow us to legitimately sell groups of animals together is a step in the right direction.
Having played about with it last night I’m left a little underwhelmed with how is been implemented, along with the restrictions in the rules which basically say you can either advertise an animal on its own, or in a group… But not both.
I have individual animals for sale, but I would also like to present curated groups of those animals for sale, to give potential buyers ideas for a potential project and to show clearly what the total cost for that might be i.e. probably lower than the individuals purchased separately.
Rework the group feature so that you can form the group from existing individual ads (and lift the prohibition on animals being sold individually and as part of a group)
This would allow the individuals in the group to be viewed, along with each animals genetics, pictures etc rather than it just being presented in a lump and having to put details in the description.
It would also allow more flexibility for sellers, and allow them the opportunity to present ideas and better value to their customers.
If an animal sold either individually or as part of the group then because they are linked both ads could then be taken down at the same time (which presumably is one of the reasons why an animal can’t be in a group and an individual ad? I have to say I don’t really get why it’s prohibited )
