Gents,

There are those of you quite experienced in the marvels of Ebay.

A question for you:

Is it possible to configure one's account so that Ebay emails you everytime certain items have been listed, such as:

"Southwick 42"

or

"Crimson Shop"

or what-have-you?

If so, it would save me from having to type in obscure, now defunct haberdashers and whatnot.

Usually I find that items older shops, no longer in business, will occasionally be listed at fairly good prices, and I'd like to snap up an item or two, but unfortunately, I rarely have the time to go through and search Ebay like I'd like to.

Or if I have the time, I find that 2 or 3 hours has passed and you know, can't have that happening to often...

Thanks gents.

H.

Easy. Do a search for the item you want, and when the results come up there will be a link at the top of the page that says "Add to favorites" or "Add to favorite searches." From there, you get set up preferences to be e-mail whenever a new item is listed.

Is it possible to extend your search to items that have recently ended?

Yup - completed items can be searched and then the results saved in like fashion..

I get lots of "You had this for $100 and it did not sell, would you take 37 cents?" emails.

Carlo:

Oh, there you are. Why aren't you answering my e-mails.

That last shipment of six ties was very nice. But I thought it was 37 cents for the six and you charged my credit card for $ 2.22.

What gives? Are you a rip-off or something?

I added in a charge for the six pairs of Zimmerli you shorted me. Search your inbox for [email protected] - that's the address I replied from
