eBay Zapped Saved Searches?
By: Ina Steiner
Some eBay shoppers are upset after discovering their saved searches no longer work. The problem started for some users last month, when one shopper wrote
"I have hundreds of bookmarked searches that I regularly run. About half of them don't work anymore. eBay must have changed some code earlier this year. This represents the loss of countless hours of work building these searches and tweaking them. Here is an example of one of these searches."
Another eBay user concurred, writing, "Any bookmark that starts with "search-desc.ebay.com" doesn't work anymore."
"If we can't run our weekly searches, we can't find things to buy," the original shopper wrote.
Shoppers have also reported
they have not been receiving followed search emails, a problem first reported in April but that also seems to be unresolved.
eBay did not respond to our request for information by press time.
