eBay deletes auctions to save on computing resources. Managing a database of sold items is not eBay's objective, nor is it in their business model. Once an auction is done with feedback given or return process completed, there is no reason for eBay to store these auctions. There is no-way to get back auctions that are deleted from the ~60 day archive. ...

I thought I'd post my hacky solution for anyone else stumbling across this in the future. This works as of May 15, 2017. eBay may change its DOM structure in the meantime. In that case, this will have to be adapted. Open up the developer console (F12 or right click > Inspect) Click the "Console" tab Copy+Paste the following and press Enter: $("#...

This solution is based on DaveInCaz and larsolafsimonsen's fantastic answers which I have used many times but no longer seems to work for me (possibly eBay changed the DOM as a mentioned susceptibility). Open up the developer console (F12 or right click > Inspect) Click the Console tab Copy + Paste the following and press Enter: $('.DEFAULT').parent()....

The trick to viewing the full res images is to double click on one! That opens up a viewer where you can page through all the images and right-click to save-as the full resolution versions.

I wouldn't really recommend contacting people outside of eBay—the restrictions are there for a reason! :) However, you could use http://scr.im or http://tinymailto.com/ which converts your email in to a standard HTTP URL. e.g. from this: myname.longlastname@my.university.example.net to this: http://tinymailto.com/abcd They also offer the ability ...

From eBay Community Center: It means that your bid (your full, maximum bid, even if the full amount is not shown) is lower than the "Reserve" set by the seller as the minimum sale price, and you cannot win that item with that bid. The item might be at least for £50 for instance.

It's worth mentioning that, as this type of listing format is against eBay policy, it can be (and usually should be) reported. When reporting the listing, it can be hard to find the correct issue to report. This problem is confusingly listed under: Listing Practices Avoiding Ebay Fees Offering Choices This seems like an odd organization, but the ...

I believe some 3rd party eBay "sniper" software (which sometimes run as a web service, rather than desktop software) will do this sort of thing for you. The sniper software is generally used to automate the process of placing a bid in the last few seconds of an auction to increase the chances of a win. From techradar's review of "The best free and paid eBay ...

Listings with a green price are those that were successfully sold. Listing with a red price are items that finished without a sale. Source.

I'm an eBay seller and have often wondered that myself. However the answer is actually quite simple. eBay only stores 3 months of history (90 days I think) and any sales prior to that just don't display. The buyer i***4 must have purchased earlier than the 90 days and has only left feedback recently. Sometimes people take a long time to leave feedback, if ...

From the eBay help pages: What does it mean to “watch” an item? When you’re “watching” an item, the listing appears in your Watching list in My eBay.

A completed listing is a listing that has already resulted in a sale or that has expired with out a sale. In other words, it is no longer an item that can be bought, but the listing remains on eBay showing the final purchase price and winning bidder (if applicable) for 15 days. Source.

yes you can view older items. one way is to click on Purchase history and then select the year you would like to see. another way is to go into My eBay Summary and select the year you would like to see.

I always keep order / confirmation emails I get from ebay, and for really important ones I also print the listing page into pdf and save it. Some old listings (past ebay's 90 days) can, however, be retrieved from terapeak.com or listingshistory.com if you don't have them saved.

No you can't. From the Different ways of buying help article: When you see a Classified Ad listing, it means that you deal directly with the seller and buy the item at a fixed price. Because your Classified Ad purchase is outside of eBay, you won't be able to use eBay Feedback or eBay Buyer Protection.

These emails are being delivered to the correct user as far as Gmail is concerned. Gmail is not sending emails to you, rather ebay is sending emails to j.harrop@g... which IS your email account, just as jh.arrop@g... and ever other combination with a . in it would be. All those combinations are tied to just your one account. I think your question ...

That's indeed what it means. When you set up an auction, you can set a reserve price. If the bidding doesn't reach that threshold the item won't be sold. The idea is to start with a low minimum in order to encourage bidding, but to save you from selling the item too low. What's a reserve price?

Bon Gart's answer is correct. Some additional remarks, the key is to open the case before 45 days has expired. There should be no reason to be shy about opening a case in this situation, as you can close it if you wish or wait for eBay to judge in the case. However, if you open the case you are empowered to judge if for example you eventually received the ...

The answer depends upon a number of details you have not provided (for example timing) but tl;dr is e-Bay guarantee delivery of goods as described. Naturally there are lengthy terms and conditions associated with this, available here. The gist of this is that the Buyer is refunded and, if it happens too often in connection with any one Seller, that Seller ...

I had some success by filtering out the junk items the guy is using to make the price seem lower. In your case, try adding a "-RJ45" after your search query and enable "search description". This would exclude all listings that have the RJ45 as any part of their listing I had this issue with iPhone 6es with people selling a 4s as another option, making their ...

Yes, you have a single reputation score. So, your sales listing will show a 1k+ reputation score.
