Buying and selling on eBay is not only fun, but a great way to make some extra money or find items that are seemingly unreachable when shopping. Advanced users may already have their methods perfected, but adding in a browser plugin can ease the pain of daunting tasks like currency converting or price comparison.
1. Fast Search for eBay
Available for Chrome and Firefox, this extension helps you search very quickly. It will search eBay’s international sites, suggest searches, follow search configurations, watch listings, and so much more. It may be completely customized and is great for an eBay power user.
Of course eBay has its own plugin available on Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. It allows users to keep track of the items they are bidding on, as well as eBay’s daily deals. Users may also save searches and stay up to date with saved sellers.
This gives users an easy way to track all of their seller activity from one page. Installing the extension will allow the user to view their seller highlights each time they browse. They can also track new purchases and see how many items they need to ship out. It is a great way for sellers to stay organized on Chrome, Safari, and Firefox.
4. eBay Amazon Price Comparison
Here you will find the ability to get a side-by-side comparison of an item’s price on eBay and Amazon. It is as simple as searching for the item and the extension will show both of the marketplaces at the same time. This is helpful for the shopper that is keen on getting the best price. It is available on Chrome and Firefox.
5. My eBay Manager
Available on Chrome, Safari, and Firefox, this extension is great for the eBay buyer or seller that is super organized. All of the user’s activity can be shown at any given time. It is always signed in and is able to show all eBay listings and purchases any time, all in one place.
6. What’s it Worth?
This is a very helpful plugin available for Chrome, Firefox, iOS, and Android that can give users an idea of how much an item is really worth or what it will sell for on eBay. The way it works is by taking the average eBay price of similar items that have successfully sold in the previous weeks. This is a good tool to help determine whether it might be worth your time to sell an item on eBay.
7. eBay Negs!
Only on Firefox, using this extension allows the ability to view all of a seller’s negative feedback with a simple right-click. This is a good way to determine if a seller is worth purchasing from.
8. eBay Live
A miniature version of eBay’s full site, this pop-up sidebar allows for a quick view of sold items, watched items, and the like. This eBay browser plugin can only be used on Firefox, and is perfect for keeping track of all activity in one convenient place.
9. Snipe It
This is also known as Myibidder Auction Bid Sniper and is available for Chrome, Firefox, Android, and iOS. It allows bidders to “snipe” or place a bid on an item in the last few remaining seconds of the item’s auction. The button is installed and will appear on every eBay page to allow for easy sniping, all you have to do it tell it which products to snipe.
10. eBay Worldwide Currency Converter
When purchasing from another country, this extension allows users to shop on any eBay storefront in their own currency. It takes the pain out of researching currency conversions and can be used with Firefox and Chrome.
Being armed with these eBay plugins can help even a novice user become more proficient at buying and selling on one of the most popular online marketplaces.
