Mine were not either. I'd love to find out why.

I'm not sure how to fix your problem, but I know it was an issue when Etsy had alchemy before, too.

I'm sure admin will be working on a way to fix it. :)

So should I e-mail support so they can fix my sales #?

It didn't add the two I just agreed to, too.

Mine did but I had to go to "Your Alchemy" and then "Private Request" and then I had to click "Completed" When I did that it showed up in my sold items.

It's not obvious. It took me awhile to figure it out.

Alchemy sales won't show up in your sold item count until you upload pictures and click the "complete" button in the bid. Once you click the "complete" button, the item will appear on your Alchemy page in your shop, your sold items page, and shopping tools like Pounce and Time Machine.

We'll update the FAQs to make this a little clearer. Thanks!
