How do I add a note using My eBay?

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

Notes are helpful for reminding yourself about:

  • Sellers you’ve enjoyed buying from

  • An item you're thinking about buying

  • Searches you have saved

  • Free postage for an item you're bidding on

  • A question you have for the seller

  • Your opinion of the description and photo of the item

If you add a note in the Watch, Active, Won, Didn't Win, Scheduled, Sold, or Unsold sections, your note will stay with the item throughout the buying or selling process. For example, if you add a note to an item while you are bidding on it, and then you win it, the note will remain with the item when it moves to your Won section.Only you can see your notes. Once you add a note, you can also edit the note or delete it.
