Navigation: Logos.com > Sale (in red letters on top menu bar) > On Sale Today 

Sort by Price (lowest first)

URL for above scenario: https://www.logos.com/search?context=product&sortBy=PriceLow&limit=15&filters=status-live_Status&page=1&ownership=unowned

My results include (without an option to add to cart, but interestingly I can add them to a wish list)

The same thing happens when I search for "price:0".  A price of $0 is not the same as no price.  It's like the difference between a zero value and a null value - not the same value and doesn't mean the same thing.

If I can't buy it, why is it in product search lists?  I realize they are included in packages, but so are many other products that can be bought separately.

Please do not include products that have no price (can not be bought) from product search results (unless specifically selected as a search filter facet).

It's there so you can identify the resource when it is referred in your application.

It would be nice to exclude these when shopping.  A filter facet may be one way to make it user-optional, indicating the search is for research or shopping.

I agree.
