Use these simple guidelines to speed your searches.
- eBay Quick Value Check Search is not case-sensitive. It doesn’t matter whether you enter “rolex” or “Rolex”.
- Use specific keywords to describe the item, including brand, date, or color. For example: “Apple iPod nano 8GB”.
- Don’t use conjunctions (or, and) or articles (a, an, the) in your search unless it is part of a book title or movie title. For example: enter “Barnes Noble” rather than “Barnes and Noble” to return many more results.
- To re-sort the results by price, select ‘highest prices first’ from the pull-down.
