Creating and managing collections


Collections are a way to gather and share things on eBay you like, want, or recommend. Start a Collection to show buyers what you have for sale, or share and organize your favorite eBay finds.

Create or add to a collection

To create a collection, or add an item to one of your existing collections:
  1. Find an item that interests you.

  2. In the listing page, click Add to collection.

  3. If you don't already have a collection started, we help you create a new collection.

  4. Add a description of the item, or mention what you like about it.

  5. Click Add to collection when you're done.

A short but descriptive title that explains what's in the collection, and vivid, high-quality photographs make your collection more eye-catching and members are more likely to save and share them.

Manage your collections

To see your collections you must be signed in to eBay. When you are signed in, place your pointer over your name in the top left corner of the eBay home page and click on your eBay user name to go to your profile. The collections you have created are displayed on your profile page.

To make changes to a collection, click Edit. You can change the title, add or edit a description, make it private, or delete it.

When you create a collection, it's automatically visible for everyone to see. If you'd like to make it private, so only you can see it, you can customize your privacy settings.

Save a collection

To save a collection created by another member, click Save next to the collection title. The items in the collection are added to your feed, and other members can see the collections you have saved in your profile. You can customize your privacy settings to make the collections you have saved public or private. You can save up to 50 collections at a time, with up to 200 items per collection.

To see the collections you have saved, go to your profile and under Saved, click Collections, or place your pointer over My eBay at the top of most pages and select My Collections from the drop-down menu.

To remove a collection from the interests you have saved, find the collection in your profile and click Delete to deselect it.

Commenting on a collection

If you have questions or something to say about a collection, you can comment using the box at the end of the collection. The collection's creator and other members will be able to see and respond to your comment.

If you change your mind about a comment you wrote, you can delete it at any time by clicking Delete at the bottom of your comment.

Click Like to agree with or show your appreciation for other members' comments.
