    Default Can't find certain eBay feature - anyone help?

    There was a feature I've used in the past where you could type in certain keywords etc. and if an item was added to ebay that matched them, you'd get a notification. I used it for something in the past, for something that came up on eBay rarely (specific Toshiba docking station) and it worked superbly as it had a BIN and I bought it immediately.

    I want to do the same, but I can't for the life of me remember where the feature is/how you access it. Possible that it's been dropped, but I can't imagine why it would've been.

    Can anyone help? It's not the 'Add an item to your watch list' before anyone says that, that's to watch something that is already on ebay. This feature let you type in keywords and when a subsequent item was then posted up on ebay that matched, you get a notification.

    EDIT: It also isn't the 'Want It Now' feature, as that relies on people coming across your request and responding - the one I'm referring to is fully automatic and comes from eBay.

    I've looked on the ebay help section, but that's not much use as it's so badly laid out and the search facility isn't great either.

    eBay has its own search alert service called "Favorite Searches." You can sign into your "My eBay" (it's at the top of every eBay screen) and go to the "Favorites" tab.

    eBay's Favorite Searches allows you to set up alerts for up to 15 items. You can choose to have eBay mail the results to you, in which case you will receive messages ONLY when there are new items found. The alert will stay active for 90 days, at which point you have the option to reactivate your search with email notification.

    eBay's Favorite Searches also allows you to monitor favorite sellers and favorite categories. For more information, you can read eBay's help guide at: http://pages.ebay.com/help/buyerguide/favorite_searches.html

    Try Ann Summers direct Dunc, it's no more expensive than eBay when they have a sale on, and it all arrives in brown paper, so the postman and neighbours don't get suspicious of what that 12inch tall box contains.
