Here is additional information on this feature.
If a client purchases a piece that meets the following conditions, it will be automatically marked sold:
After the sale is completed, Paypal notifies FASO of the sale and we mark the piece sold.

NOTE: This feature will not mark a piece as sold until the buyer has actually checked out on Paypal. Just placing it in the shopping cart does not affect the status.
A CAVEAT: Paypal sometimes takes a couple of minutes to send the notification. So the piece might not appear to be sold for a minute or two.
The developers are currently testing another method involving when the customer returns from Paypal that will mark the piece(s) sold as soon as the client returns, so it appears immediate.
The code for the "immediate" return case is written, we just want to test it a bit more. Both pieces of code will stay in place, so if the client for some reason does NOT return, the piece(s) will still get marked sold via the IPN method.
