I would pay for a better saved search function. I have told Ebay that I would pay for (a) more than 100 items; (b) more frequent queries; but so far they aren't interested.

If 100 items (the current Ebay limit) seems like a lot - I would point out that sellers sometimes use different descriptions for the same items so sometimes multiple sets of keywords are required. So that 100 items may only be about 30-40 items. On the second topic, sometimes items that interest me are posted and sold before I ever hear about them.

I don't think that I want bids to be placed automatically based on search results! But getting an email alert within an hour, say, of posting, would be helpful.

Thanks!

Can you email me with more details? I am unaware of that "100" limit. If there is a way to improve search, I may be interested in it.

On Ebay there is a maximum of 100 stored searches per user id. Each search is processed once per day and emails sent indicating when new items have been listed that match the searches.

Personally I have multiple Ebay accounts that all feed emails back to the same email account (effectively via redirection) in order to get round this restriction.
