How to Search eBay History
Using the ‘My eBay’ tab, you can check your sales and purchase history. This can be extremely useful for personal record keeping. eBay store owners can also check previously sold or completed listings.
Searching Completed Listings
Using the advanced search feature, you can examine completed transactions or sold listings. This can be useful to estimate how much you’ll spend buying a specific item or how much an item gets sold for. Follow the steps mentioned below to search for complete listings:
- Click the “Advanced” tab at the top of the eBay home page.
- Under the “Enter keywords or item number”, type the name of the item you’re searching for. Then, tick the “Completed listings” check box for completed transactions or the “Sold listings” box for listings that have already been sold.
- Click Search to bring up a list of completed transactions or sold items.
Finding Your Purchase History
The My eBay section on eBay’s website maintains a record of all the purchases that users have made in the past 3 years. By default, all the purchases made within the last 60 days are shown. Older purchases can be viewed by filtering the year.
- Hover your mouse over the My eBay button and select “Purchase History” from the menu.
- Click on the “See orders” from the drop-down menu to select the period you want to view.
- Select the “Orders per page” options at the bottom of the Purchase History menu to change how many orders are shown per page.
Finding Your Sold Listings
You can also find records of your sales in the My eBay section. This includes items for sale, recently sold items, items returned by customers, and unsold merchandise. Each heading can be set to filter based on date or by listing format. However, the sales records only extend to the last 18 months.
- Hover your mouse over the My eBay button and select “Selling” from the menu.
- Check the relevant section for the type of history you’re looking for. For example, Sold for completed sales.
- Use the Period drop-down to show history within a specific period.
That’s it, you are good to go!
