How do I add a note using My eBay?

You can add a private note to any item in your My eBay view.

Notes are helpful for reminding yourself about:

  • Sellers you’ve enjoyed buying from

  • A gift item you're thinking about buying

  • Searches you have saved

  • Free P&P for an item you're bidding on

  • A question you have for the seller

  • Your opinion of the description and photo of the item

You can add a note in the Watching, Bidding, Won, Didn't Win, Scheduled, Selling, Sold, Unsold, Saved searches, and Saved sellers views. Your notes are associated with items throughout the buying or selling process, and only you can see your notes. Once you add a note, you can edit the note or delete it.
