Tech Tools: The eBay Toolbar
If you will be using eBay regularly, you should install the eBay toolbar (shown above). Once installed, the toolbar appears as part of your Internet browser, allowing quick access to your My eBay page, the eBay Home page, PayPal, and your Favorite Searches and Sellers. Use the eBay search box to check what items are available on eBay no matter where you are on the Web. You can, for example, search by Item title, description, or auction number. The toolbar may be customized in various ways -- for example, you can add Bid Alert, Feedback, or Watch Alert features to your bar. Note that eBay’s “Account Guard” offers protection from spoof eBay websites, fake sites that look like eBay and are created to elicit personal account information.
