eBay Search Tips:

  • match all words = separate with spaces.   small blue widget  
    Find listings with all words small and blue and widget in the title.
  • match any word = separate with commas and enclose in parentheses.   widget (small,blue)  
    Find every widget that is either blue or small.
  • exclude words = precede "match any" with minus sign.   widget -(small,blue)  
    Must follow search word. Find widgets but exclude any that are blue or small.
  • match whole phrase = surround phrase in quotes.   "small blue widget"  
    Find only listings with exact phrase in title.
  • match any phrase = surround each phrase in quotes;
    comma-separate phrases within parentheses.   ( "small widget", "blue widget" )  
    Find listings with one of the exact phrases in title.
  • wildcards = NOTE: as of 05 Nov 2012, eBay no longer supports wildcards (*).
  • punctuation = eBay will not locate punctuation or symbols in a search.
    Use punctuation only as described above to refine a search.
  • limitations = a word must be at least 2 characters long and can not exceed 98 characters.
    A comma-delimited string is measured like a word – so use occasional spaces to break into groups under 98 characters. Total characters in the search phrase may not exceed 350.

Show Drop list of Search words

A droplist provides a premade list of searches, which is useful if your searches must be complex in order to locate particular matches.  ? 

The visitor will see your caption in the first column and eBay will search for the words you add to the second column.

Empty rows will not be included.

You can display non-clickable dividers in your list by adding a caption and leaving the search phrase empty.

Caption Hidden Search phrase  ?
