Ebay Favorite Searches
February 2, 2005 10:01 AM   Subscribe

eBay used to have a feature where you could set up an ongoing search on a term and it would email you when any auction was listed containing that term. I can no longer find this on the site and have driven myself crazy looking for it a couple of different times. Did they remove it?

I think they moved it into the 'My eBay' section.

After you do a search it will say in the results page to

*add to favourites

"On the right near the top of results"

This will save it in your ebay favourites and will email you for the period you specify.

Your favourites are viewable in MY Ebay!

To add to what vidarling said, I believe listing something in My favorites doesn't automatically lead to being emailled. I believe you then have to set the preferences to give you an email whenever an item of that sort is listed.

Can you make these favorite/searches into RSS feeds? That would be awesome. If not: yet again, craigslist outperforms Ebay

Wow, that is counterintuitive now. Thanks for the help!

luriete, here's a couple of them. Neither are official, but an official one doesn't seem to exist.
