eBay Advanced RSS Searches No Longer Available?

eBay Advanced Search RSS

Is eBay’s Advanced Search RSS Gone?

While researching some items to sell on eBay today I noticed something strange. As I normally do headed over to eBay’s advanced search entered my search term and scrolled down to the bottom to find the orange RSS button. However, it seems  that eBay has removed it during their search redesign. So I wanted to check and make sure that my featured eBay Feeds were still working and they were. What this means is that the RSS system is still in place eBay just no longer seems to be adding a convenient way to access it. This is important because RSS can be used to do a lot of Advanced eBay Market Research for free.

Many people on search forums have been saying that you can get around this by simply adding &rss=1 to the end of the URL for your advanced search. However having tried this myself I came up with two outcomes either the page wasn’t found or it simply reloaded the eBay search results. It neither case could you subscribe to the feed.  I know that it must be possible because as I said before my old feeds are working. If anyone has any other tips or tricks to solve this problem please leave them in the comments section below.

Welcome as you have probably guessed I'm the designer, owner, and main contributor at this site. I have been blogging off and on since 2013, when I first started a movie review site on blogspot. That site is pretty much dead but I'm in the process of trying to resurrect this one with some design tweaks and a renewed sense of clarity. This site isn't my sole focus as I find myself dabbling in many methods and techniques to turn my online hobby into a side income. I currently reside in southern California and where I graduated from San Diego State University with a major in Computer Science. Feel free to email me at the address below with any inquiries.

    Same problem here
    Does someone found a solution ?

  2. There are some post on the eBay forums here http://forums.ebay.com/db1/topic/Search/No-More-Rss/5100162634 that talk about clearing cookies and browser issues. Haven't tried it myself as I have a lot of passwords saved using cookies with FireFox and would rather not go back and save them all again. Apparently you can also still construct your own RSS urls using eBay's RSS API but that's a pretty steep learning curve.

Got something to say? Add it below.
