Keep Track of Auctions Outside of eBay

Use eBay’s auction-tracking tools or create a flexible auction-watching tool better than anything eBay has to offer.

If I bought everything on eBay I wanted, I would’ve gone broke long ago. But I’m also a collector, and as such, I routinely track many auctions in my various fields of interest, whether or not I actually intend to bid on them.

Keeping track of auctions is among your most important tasks as a bidder—especially for items you’ve won—if for no other reason than to ensure that you eventually receive everything you’ve paid for. Tracking auctions is also an essential part of sniping [Hack #26] as well as selling [Hack #43] . If you’re really after something specific, you may want to track completed auctions that didn’t sell, so you can find them easily when they’re relisted. And sometimes you may want to keep track of an auction’s progress purely for the sake of curiosity.
