Turn an eBay Search into an RSS Feed

Here's how to turn an eBay search into an RSS feed

Have you ever been watching eBay to find that rare item, or just trying to keep an eye out for a good deal? You can save a search in eBay and it will email you daily, but I found that it leaves a lot to be desired. It always gives me notification about suggested items that don’t match my search.

I looked for a better way to keep on top of searching for what I was looking for and found that you can turn an eBay search into an RSS feed. Load it into your favorite RSS reader or website and it will give you all the recent hits on your search.

Here’s How To Turn an eBay Search into an RSS Feed

  1. Search for your item on eBay. You can even do an advanced search and set the price range and type of auction you’re looking for. 
  2. Copy the URL from the address bar. 
  3. Add “&_rss=1” to the end of the address in the URL.
  4. Plug that link into your favorite RSS reader and you’ve got a search that is always up to date.

For example, if I run a search and my URL is:

http://www.eBay.com/sch/i.html?_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0&_nkw=junk

The RSS feed link would be:

http://www.eBay.com/sch/i.html?_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0&_nkw=junk&_rss=1
