Searching eBay Shops

By searching eBay Shops, you can locate more sources for the items you want at a set (fixed) price. Searching for an eBay Shop is helpful if, for example, you’re looking for sellers who specialise in particular types of items, or who are likely to have a large variety of items. Shops include all items offered by a seller, so you can buy more of what you want.

Searching for items in eBay Shops

You can search for eBay Shops that include matching items. This search is helpful if, for example, you’re trying to find a Shop with the highest number of hats in inventory. Search results include the Shop name, a link to the Shop, a description of the Shop, and the number of matching items within that Shop.

To search for eBay Shops with matching items:
  1. Click the Advanced Search link located at the top of most eBay pages.

  2. On the left side of the page, under Shops, click the Find Shops link.

  3. Enter your search words and select the "Shops with matching items" option.

  4. Click the Search button.

Searching for eBay Shops by name

You can search for eBay Shops by name by using either the exact Shop name or a keyword. This search is helpful for finding a particular Shop, whether you remember the exact Shop name or just a portion of it. For example, if you can’t remember an exact Shop name, but you remember that the Shop name included the word hat, you could enter hat as your keyword. All Shops that include the word hat in the Shop name are returned.

If a Shop name is found that is an exact match based on your search, it's returned first. The remaining Shops are sorted alphabetically, by subscription level, with UK shops listed first followed by any international Shops. Search results include the Shop name, a link to the Shop, and a description of the Shop.

To search for eBay Shops by name:
  1. Click the Advanced Search link located at the top of most eBay pages.

  2. On the left side of the page under Shops, click the Find Shops link.

  3. Enter the Shop name or your search words and select the "Shop name only" option.

  4. Click the Search button.
