When you go to My eBay, you'll see a summary of your recent buying and selling activity. You can customize the information you see and the order in which it appears.

Customize your Summary page

Your Summary page automatically appears first when you go to My eBay. It displays frequently-used sections, such as buying and selling reminders.

To choose the sections you want on your Summary page:
  1. Click My eBay at the top of most eBay pages.

  2. Click the Page options link at the top of the Summary page.

  3. Select the sections you want to see on the page.

  4. Click the Apply button.

Tip: You can also set the maximum number of items you'd like to see in each section. The default is 10 items.

Choose which page you see first

Depending on how you use eBay, you might want to change which page you see first when you go to My eBay. For example, if you sell a lot of items, you might want to see the All Selling page instead of the Summary page.

To choose which page appears first when you go to My eBay:
  1. Click My eBay at the top of most eBay pages.

  2. Click the Change link next to the message at the top of the page that tells you what your landing page is set to.

  3. Use the drop-down menu to choose the page that should appear first.

  4. Click the Apply button.

You can reorder the sections that appear on each page of the Activity tab. For example, if you want your All Buying page to show items you’re bidding on first, move the Bidding section to the top of the page.

To reorder the sections on a page:
  1. Locate the section you want to move.

  2. Click one of the arrows in the section header to move it up or down.

  2. Select the color you want.

Delete or restore sections you deleted

You can choose which sections you want to display on your Summary page.

To choose which sections appear on your Summary page:
  1. Click the Page options link at the top of the section.

  2. In the Summary page options box, select the check box next to each section you want to see on your Summary page.

Delete or restore items in a section

Want to remove an item from your buyer or selling list? You can delete items in a section, and then restore them later if you change your mind.

To delete an item in a section:
  1. Select the check box next to the item.

  2. Click the Delete button at the bottom of the list.

To restore an item you previously deleted:

Note: Once an item is deleted from the Watching list, it can't be undeleted.

Choose how much detail to display

Most pages let you decide whether to display only basic information about the items you’re buying or selling, or all the details. You can choose a different level of detail for each section.

To select how much detail to display:
  1. Click the Edit link in the section header.

  2. Choose Customize from the drop-down menu.

  3. Make your changes.

  4. Click the Apply button.

Tip: If a section contains a large number of items, you might want to sort and filter the items using the View and Sort by drop-down menus that appear at the top of the list.

Customize your shortcuts
