Watch this item link

I've noticed many people put in a "Click here to watch this item" link in their Ebay auctions and I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to put that in my auctions.

You have to go in right away after posting your listing and add the links.

The link is http://cgi1.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?MakeTrack&item=

Make sure to put your item number at the end of it after the item= part.

For example, my current item's watch link is:

http://cgi1.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?MakeTrack&item=5571084444

(the ... in the middle is just something this forum software does. It's not part of the link)

What I do is I put the "Click here to watch this item" in my listing when I list it as plain text, and as soon as I list it and have an item number, I go in and revise. The key is doing it before you get any bids. Once you have bids you can't revise anymore.

Hope that helps.

OK, I did this on item # 5572034219 and it doesn't seem to work. Obviously I have done something wrong. Can you please look at it and let me know what I have done wrong. Thx

I'm sorry, I didn't realize you didn't know about HTML!

Here you go. Copy and paste this in:

HTML:
Click <a href="http://cgi1.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?MakeTrack&item=">HERE</a> to watch this item!
Remember to add your item number after item= but before the "

i.e. item=XXXXXXXXX"

:)

does it work right away or not till your auction is fully up?

You have to post your auction LIVE first so you can get your item number. Then you have to make the edit.

The edit must be made before any bids are placed, so it's best to do this right away after listing.
