Shopping alerts outside of eBay

I have a particular item that is no longer manufactured but I love. I have eBay alerts set up, but I'd like to have alerts on other sites like Poshmark or others. Does this exist? I can't find anything out there.

I've used the IFTTT app to watch eBay and Craigslist searches in more-or-less real time, triggering it via RSS, with good results. Not familiar with Poshmark.

Best answer: Yes, IFTTT is great for Craigslist (and, Craigslist now lets you setup alerts directly too).

I too would love alerts on Poshmark. I'm not holding out hope that they'll create this feature themselves, as they seem way more interested in pushing tons of things at customers, and not at all interested in surfacing fewer "right" things (example: I set all of "my sizes" in Men's clothes, but My Feed is 100% women's clothes).

I have used Wachete to monitor the search results page of some websites and receive alerts when the results change. This works well when the search is very narrow and there are usually 0 results. It's dependent on the search parameters being in the URL, which is true for Poshmark. If you can get a narrow enough search, it just might work!
