Someone advises delete, other not delete… They have less salable items in the portfolio of a negative impact on overall sales? What do you think is better?

I deleted a few of my items in past. I regret those decisions. That’s my personal opinion on this.

I personally wouldn’t delete unless it was something that zero sales after a good while. As long as it is up there, it has a chance to sell, if you delete it then it benefits no one. Leaving it up there gives you more variety, more selection, another item to link to the marketplaces with.

The only benefit I see for deleting poor-selling items is some sort of ego boost to see all high-selling items in your portfolio.

If you think there’s room for improvement with it, update it – that has revitalized a few of my items.

Also I think that when I delete something, I will never sell it. That’s why I wonder why so many people recommend.

Had I deleted my items, I would have lost 53 sales already. So just like everybody above, no. Don’t ever delete your items. It gives one more variety to your portfolio.

Twice i have made a decision to delete something at the end of the month, and then had sales… after over a year without any interest! Upgrading is the best idea.

Try to improve items with low sales. It’s best way to earn from items like that.

If you delete it, then you do not have change to sell your work (but remember of time spent on that item)!

Best regards!

Like many of above said: NEVER !!! I personally have some items that have no sales at all, but some of them were uploaded in the beginning and looking how at the level of the first and the last uploaded helps me see how i have improved my skills.
