Saving searches and collections


Once you have saved a search, you can run the search from the Saved tab on the home page, the Saved Searches page in My eBay, or receive your search results automatically by email.

Saving a search adds the search results to your feed on eBay.ca. The search also appears in your profile as an interest. You can save a combined total of up to 100 searches and members at any one time.

  1. From the top of any page, enter the item you're looking for in the search box, and then click Search.

  3. If you don't want to automatically receive email notifications when new items match your search, you will be prompted to change your preferences.
