Follow Your Favorite Sellers

Now you can follow your favorite member stores. To follow a store, use the button on the upper right corner of their store page. This feature will be available for stores who have a MorphMarket membership.

Having followed some stores, you can access the full list of stores you're following from the menu on the Followed Store page. From the Followed Stores page use the button in the upper right corner to access a feed of the newest stuff they have posted.

Coming soon -- a long time and highly requested complimentary feature: Ignore Store. This will exclude stores from any search results.

Calculate With Ad

Ever imagine what kind of combos you could produce with an animal you are looking at? Perhaps you like to use our gene calculators to explore different possibilities.

We've just made that easier by adding a Calculate button to the ad page which drops its traits right into the gene calculator (for applicable species).

It initially crosses the traits with a normal. Just click the righthand box to update the right parent to whatever you choose. Let your imagination run wild!

Create Ads Fast with Clone

We've just added another convenient way to create new ads for animals which are similar to ones you have already listed. This is useful when entering in a whole clutch, whose members share properties like species, maturity, date of birth, clutch #, genes, description, etc.

  1. Click the new copy icon on the inventory screen (in the left column). This creates a new ad with most of the properties of the old one.
  2. Update any field values and add photos. Make sure you provide a unique serial ID for this animal.

That's it!

(And while it might be tempting, please do not use this to create new ads of the same animal. Our rules only allow creating a single ad for an item, which should be renewed thereafter. Thanks!)

Disabling Auto-Renewal

Sellers can now disable the auto-renewal feature.

Ads are eligible for renewal every several weeks depending on your plan level. When renewed, they jump to the front of some listings and are reshared in the MorphReport. Standard and Premium level members also have an auto-renew feature that will automatically renew as soon possible. You can always see the last time that your ad last renewed by checking the date posted on the ad page.

Some sellers have requested the ability to disable auto-renewal to be able to manually control when their ads renew. As a result, we've added this new option near the bottom of your Seller Profile options which will do exactly that.

Weight and Food Search Filters

What's on the menu? Mealworms, vegetables, or quail?

We've just added two new advanced search options. Filter your results to animals eating a certain kind of food and/or having a certain weight.

Like usual, when these search filters are enabled, only ads with these fields set will be shown. This is a benefit to sellers who put more information into their ads.

We know there are some other fields not yet in search, but these are the ones we have had most frequently requested.

So have at it. Kinda fun to poke around and see what comes up for a given size and/or diet.

Improved Category and Store Selection

As we've added more categories and subcategories to the site, the category selection option has become a real pain to use. This option is in the advanced search as well as for sellers when they create, import or modify ads.

What is Meant by Snout to Vent

Greg Graziani says, back in the days when reptiles were primarily obtained from the wild, it was more common to compare them in length. A 5' rat snake was more valuable than a 4' rat snake. But today in the captive breeding of pet reptiles, weight tends to be more commonly used.
