After a prolonged downtime we have completely rewritten the Search eBay page to better help members find items on eBay worldwide. The page can either be accessed via the old button on the Classified Advertisements page, or from its own direct link as two sub-options have now been added to the Classified Advertisements button on the navigation bar on the left hand side of your screen. There are a couple of small operational changes so please read the notes at the top of the page when you open it and ... happy searching!
