In Selling Manager and Selling Manager Pro, you can search for listings or sales records using the search box and options at the top of each view.
Searching is useful when you want to quickly find a specific listing or sales record, or narrow your listings to certain criteria such as the selling format or date range.
How to search
You can search in almost any view of Selling Manager and Selling Manager Pro. This includes your Scheduled, Active, Unsold, Sold and Archived views, plus Inventory view in Selling Manager Pro.
The available search options vary by view, but here a few of the things you might want to do:
Search for certain keywords in the listing's title or description, or search by item number.
Search for sales records in the Sold view - for example, by entering the buyer's user ID or by selecting a date range from the Period drop-down menu.
Display only listings that have a certain selling format by selecting an option in the Format drop-down menu.
Search for products in your Inventory view (Selling Manager Pro only).
To search within a view:
Enter search keywords or select other options at the top of the view.
None of the search options are required, and you don't have to enter any keywords in the search box.
For example, you can display only fixed price listings by leaving the search box empty and selecting Fixed price from the Format drop-down menu.
The search will be performed only in the view that you're currently in. It won't search across all views.
Using keyword searches
In all views, you can search for words or numbers that appear in the listing or sales record. When you enter your keywords, you'll also specify the part of the listing or sales record that you want to search.
Some common things to search for include:
Product name (Selling Manager Pro only)
Custom label, which many sellers use to track the product SKU (Selling Manager Pro only)
To search by keyword:
Enter one or more words in the search box at the top of the view.
From the drop-down menu on the right, select the part of the listing or sales record that you want to search.
For example, to search by item number select Item number from the drop-down menu.
Searching for item title, item description, product name, or buyer email
You don't need to enter the exact text for the item title, item description, product name or buyer email address. You can just type the prefix of the email address or type any word in an item title, item description or product name and the search will return all results containing that matching keyword.
Entering multiple keywords
Entering more than one keyword at a time can help narrow your search to get more specific results.
Here's how to search your item titles to return the listings that you want:
Listings that contain 2 or more keywords
Separate the keywords with a space
coffee mug blue
Listings with all words in the title, in any order
Listings that contain 2 or more keywords in a specific order
Enclose the keywords in quotation marks. The keywords must be in the exact order that you want to search for.
"The Importance of Being Earnest"
Listings with titles containing the exact phrase "The Importance of Being Earnest", but not just "earnest" or "importance of".
Using advanced search
Selling Manager and Selling Manager Pro include an advanced search option that lets you quickly find active listings using a combination of criteria including title, price, category and format.
To use advanced search:
Go to the Selling
section in My eBay and click Active.
Click Advanced Search at the top of the list.
In the window that pops up, choose to show listings that match All of the criteria or Any criteria.
Note: All narrows your results; Any expands your results.
Add up to 8 criteria that you want to create specific searches.
For example, you can search for all listings that have camera in the title with a duration greater than or equal to 3 days and a starting price of £100.
