Without using Markdown formatting, it's difficult to be sure, but it looks like there may be some indentation issues in this code. The indentation amount per level doesn't seem to be consistently implemented.

Review your indentation, make sure what ever amount you choose for a level is implemented consistently throughout the entire file, and be sure each line is indented to the correct stop for what it is indented to do.

If you still have trouble, repost the code using the formatting as explained in the video I linked to above.

UPDATE: there are still a number of syntax/indentation issues, for example:

  • on line 19 there is an "else:" inside the "except" block, but it's not associated with any conditional
  • line 25 shows " s print("SOLD!")", but the "s" is not a Python keyword
  • between the "if" on line 23 and the "else" on 28 nothing is indented more than the "if"
  • that same "else" on 28 doesn't line up with the "if" (it's actually indented less)
  • the indenting levels appear to mostly be 4 spaces, but not always (lines 28/29 have only 2 spaces difference)

And that "```python" sequence to start a code block must be on a line by itself. But an even better way to share code is to make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here. It takes very little space in the question but it shares all the code with no formatting issues.

ANOTHER UPDATE — in the new code, these issues stand out:

  • the "print" on line 18 is missing a final closing parenthesis :point_right: )
  • the "else" on line 19 is indented an amount that doesn't match the other code
  • the assignment on line 27 is indented more than the previous statement (of the same nesting level)
  • the "else" on line 28 doesn't match the indenting of the corresponding "if" on line 23

Those 3 marks should be accents, not apostrophes. And you can edit the original question to fix the formatting, you don't need to post again as an "answer'. :see_no_evil:
