Still by far the largest online marketplace in Australia, eBay is full of bargains. While you can’t monitor for price drops exactly, a custom saved search can do a similar job. Just search for the item you want, then select the price range you are waiting for. From there, you can save the search by clicking the heart icon next to the number of search results. For example, you might want a Chromecast Ultra for $70, when the cheapest price is $85. Simply set the maximum price to $70 on the search then save the search. Often, you will need to be specific with search terms to eliminate false results, such as charger cables and so on. It’s also worth selecting ‘Buy It Now’ to weed out auctions and setting a minimum price. eBay will then send an email when a product is listed under your target price.
A simpler option to do the same job is Auction Sensor ( auctionsensor.com), which allows custom alerts based on price. Handily, it can also filter by Newly Modified BuyItNow which makes it easier to target for price drops.
eBay can be hard to monitor for price drops, but custom searches with tight price limits can help find new bargains.
