I have been in touch with admin and I believe they are working on fixing this bug but just thought I would let you know about it.
I have found several of my recent draft listings have been showing up in searches. It is not really too much of a problem except that if people click on the item it says it can’t be found, which is fine as if you have it in drafts its not ready to be found anyway but it might lead to frustration with the site in general if buyers can’t find what they want.
Also beware what pictures you put in a draft listing - I know I often write up my drafts before I have taken photos but in order to save the draft you need to add a photo. I used to put any old random photo there, not necessarily even associated with the listing (could even be one of the dog!), and these would now be visible in the search - I have now created a blank photo with the words “draft listing” on it just to be safe.
In my case I have 2 shops and some items I have for sale in one are in draft listings in the other in case I want to swap which shop I am selling from. This means several of my items are showing in searches twice, once for real and once from the draft. Frustrating if a customer clicks on the wrong one and is told it can’t be found - they may not go back and try the other one.
