Seeing all my ebay purchases?

How can I see my purchases on eBay back further then 60 days?

I cannot find any option for this in myeBay.

Thanks.

You could look at your feedback page - it should have listings for all of your transactions. Of course, links expire after a period of time.

Feedback still seems to be capped at 60 days, unless I'm missing something.

eBay only holds onto closed auction data for 2 to 3 months. After enough time has passed, I believe that eBay simply deletes the information for security or privacy reasons.

If you look at your Feedback Profile you should see a record for every feedback you've given or received. It will show the auction number, the other party's name, the date, and the text of the feedback message. (On my account for example I see these for transactions going back at least 6 years.) From that you might be able to jog your memory as to what it was you bought or sold, but the actual auction data is gone.

eBay keeps the information forever, but it is only available on the web for a short time (for reasons of database manageability, as I understand it). The page for the item stays up for at least 90 days (how much longer than 90 days varies wildly) but none of the handy lists that help you find the items last longer than 60 days. Maybe your computer's web cache will help?

Do you save all your emails? You could search your old mail for ebay notifications.

Your Paypal account would give you the info on the purchases (assuming the overwhelming number of which probably would be paid for with Paypal)-- not sure if that's the form you're looking for though. Just login to Paypal, and specify the date range for as far back as you'd like!
