Indeed. I almost suggested changing the page size for importing the list, but that setting seems to be stored server-side, so it would need to be set back after the import. I suspect it would be more efficient just to keep looking for a next page until it comes up empty.
Then again, maybe I should just leave the implementation details to Mario. O

It think it should also be possible to, programmatically, get to the later pages after the first is processed/
Ebay provides links to do this at the bottom of the page which, I think, add stuff like '&GotoPage=2' to the URL being processed.

I've never tried importing my Watch List when I had more than 100 items on it (mainly because I try very hard to keep it lower than that so *I* don't have to page through), so I don't know how it behaves in that case. Keep in mind that eBay allows a maximum of 200 items on the Watch List but only allows you to view up to 100 of them at a time.

Thank you, I will look into this. If all are visible when you set to show 75, I should be able to do that programatically.
Note that only non-completed, non-fixed-price listings can be imported, and also only listings on which you have not placed a bid already.

Well I have a very short watch list of 4 auctions (no buy it nows) and only two appear....

Just for fun, I tested it. With 13 items already in Gixen, one not on my Watch List, and 76 items total on my Watch List:
- Set view to 10 per page, import resulted in 18 items in Gixen.
- Deleted the extras, set view to 25, import resulted in 28.
- Deleted the extras, set view to 50, import resulted in 51.
- Deleted the extras, set view to 75, import resulted in all 76 items.
Not exactly the results I expected, but I didn't actually figure out which scheduled items were on which page of the Watch List, and I'm sure that accounts for the "overflow" of the page size. Cupid, I think you have your smoking gun.
Let me know if I should start a new thread.

The last time someone reported something similar was on this thread:
I keep asking the same question, as I did on that thread, regarding how many items people display from their watch list, when logged into Ebay... but no-one has yet got back to me with any answer as to whether they have investigated this.

Post subject: Only a portion of my watch list downloads?
I couldn't see a similar topic...
When I try to import my watch list from Ebay, Gixen only imports a few of the items actually in there.
Am I doing something wrong?
