No Frederick I think there is misunderstanding . I am only telling you Total Item Sold Counting is only for Authors not for the world .
Example : If I have 99 Sale today and when I came tomorrow and if 1 more my item sold then the counting shows 100 Sales and this is only for logged in Authors personally. Means No one can see my total Item sold but only I can see my Total Item Sold on Active Item Details Page.
Every Individual Author can see Total Number of Sales in their Item Page i.e. here https://www.codester.com/my-items/
& Its not for the world.
