How do the eBay listings work?

Our category pages include a ‘Top eBay Auctions’ box to enable fast browsing of relevant and interesting eBay auctions in that category.

What You’ll Find:

  • Current Auctions
    This feature shows as many as possible of the top currently active (not yet ended) auctions for each category. These are auctions with at least one bid, sorted by current bid (highest to lowest).
  • Completed Auctions
    This feature shows as many as possible completed auctions from the past week for each category, chosen from among the auctions which ended with at least one bid, and sorted by winning bid.
  • Most Watched Items
    This feature shows the current (active) auctions with the most ‘watchers’ on eBay, among those auctions with at least one bid.

Important Additional Information:

  • Selection criteria
    We use customized searches to yield the most relevant eBay (U.S.) listings within a category. We don’t manually screen each listing, so irrelevant listings may slip in. Our searches may also miss some relevant items.
  • Update frequency
    We update the listings several times a day (about every two hours), but bids shown are not up to the minute. For the latest, click on a listing to go directly to the actual eBay auction.
  • Caveat emptor
    We provide these listings as a convenience, but do not endorse, vouch for, or have any control over the items or sellers or content in these auctions (see our Terms of Use). We don’t screen for fraudulent listings; you should be mindful of potential fraud on eBay and follow eBay’s tips for buying and avoiding fraud.
