I hate ebay live

Have you tried to do a search rather than wade thru lot after lot? It's impossible! Try to find a price realized rather than follow each lot and it's horrible. How about a simple search option or at least a way to jump pages rather than wade thru each session page after page. Wake up, ebay! image

    I agree.
    Ebay is a vey difficult venue for live bidding! It may also be a bad venue for dead bidding!
    Check your pulse.

    15 years later I am waiting for Ebay to wake up.

    This. And, the only time I saw a coin on eBay Live that I couldn't live without, I simply Googled the auction company, called them, and made arrangements to bid on the phone instead of online. Worked perfectly and I acquired the coin. :)

    I have found ebay to be very cumbersome.... have given up on coins that I was looking for.... at least on that venue. Cheers, RickO

    I agree, Rick. Ebay is a real PITA to search on. Especially when they're constantly changing the search and display format.

    I truly hate ebay.

    Cheers

    eBay is just a bad company, since 15 years.

    I find the eBay search very efficient.

    It meshes well with my Auction Sniper.

    Do a search for the coin and date. Once the results are showing, go down the left side of options and select the "sold" category. The most recent auctions that met your original search criteria will pop up.

    But yeah, I hate ebay in general.

    If the price isn't apparent because of it being a BIN or a best offer sale, you then have to go to Watchcount and paste the auction number into the Watchcount search function, and then hit "what's popular".
