Hi all,

I can't figure out how to find a sold listing by item on ebay.

The item number is: 142847609356

Thanks

Ok, apparently it magically works when I post it here. But when I post it on ebay via the following web page, I get 0 results found.

Thanks but NO I didn't figure it out. I figured out that if I post the item number here the link will go to the listing. But if I try to find it on my own via eBay's disorganized website, I'm SOL.

Why doesn't it work under ebay's advanced search option? https://www.ebay.com/sch/ebayadvsea...sofindtype=4

I've noticed it takes a lot of digging on the app to get to what you want. I think I applied 4 or 5 filters. Its definitely harder than it used to be.

Thanks Bobby, good to know for the future.

Ironically, just bought this a few days ago. looks like it might have been a good deal.

I couldn't find it using eBay's search tool, either. It's a testament to Bobby's programming skills that a simple link on CCF works way better than eBay's own search engine.

Thanks for doing this, Bobby! But doesn't it seem ridiculous that eBay's own 'search by item number' page doesn't work? I just tried it again. It's found here: https://www.ebay.com/sch/ebayadvsea...36ecffd4cf5b

For having the domain authority that ebay has, you would think their developers would take pride in making sure that simple search functions work. And this is a publically traded company. Unbelievable and very frustrating.
