Why is my store not showing up in the Seller's Directory?

Being in the Seller Directory of a mature market is a feature of the Basic Membership package.

Your ads still show up as normal, of course, and your store page can be accessed via the ads.

Where's the new ad I created?

Here's a checklist of reasons why you might not be able to find an ad you just created. Details about these topics are found in text and videos in relevant section of the Seller's Guide.

  • Our website stores the results of specific searches for up to 30 minutes of time. This does not include your inventory view.
  • It may take up to 2 hours for the trait index page to refresh its counts and include your item. If there were none of this trait before, that label won't be seen until this time.
  • Did you add genes and/or traits to the ad?
  • Did you ad a photo to the ad? If not it will be found much lower in the rankings.
  • Did you put an ID on the ad? If not, it will not be discoverable in certain searches such as 'latest ads'-type searches. Explained in detail here.
  • Is the ad expired? This shouldn't be true for a brand new ad.
  • Is your account approved for selling? If not you'll have a big red warning on your inventory page.

Generally, it can take up to a couple of hours before ads show up in all the searches and indexes. After waiting this time period, if you still don't see your ad, please specify which ad and the exact URL on our site you expect to see the ad to get the quickest answer.

Why doesn't my heterozygous animal show up?

  • Genes refer to a genetic characteristic such as albino. Traits refer to a specific expression of this gene such as het albino, possible het albino, or visual albino.
  • A gene search will return any animal with the albino gene, whereas a trait search will only return the animals with that type of expression.
Here are ways users will find heterozygous albinos:
  • Gene index: by clicking het albino, or by clicking the label "albino" (all albinos).
  • Basic search or Advanced Search: by typing "het albino", "100% het albino", etc.
