8 Steps to Save a Search on eBay
eBay is a great source for buying…well…almost anything! The right tools and a little patience will allow you to find the right item at the right price! This post will walk you through setting up one powerful tool, “Saved Searches”.
1. The key to creating a “Saved Search” or “Followed Search” is to start broad, then narrow down your results. To start, enter a broad search topic. Today, we’re going to search for a vintage Klein Attitude mountain bike.
2. Browse through the results to see what types of listings eBay has found for you. In this instance we’re getting results from Calvin Klein so we need to narrow our results.
3. Select the correct store category. In this case “Cycling”
4. Next, select the condition, price, and location. For this bike we want a used bike and will look worldwide. We know this bike can be rare so it is worth paying international shipping to get the exact bike we want!
5. Advanced Tip: Use negative keywords to narrow your search even farther. In this example we can enter (-comp) to remove any Klein Attitude “Comp” models.
6. Refine by “Time: Newly Listed”. This refinement is crucial. Whenever you come back to this saved search, the newest items will be at the top of the page, saving you time in your search!
7. Finally, select “Follow This Search”
8. Now, you can easily view your saved searches through the “My eBay” tab at the top of your screen.
