Love ebay’s New MyMix Format for Searching Trends

Aeryn Lynne

~ This article and giveaway is sponsored by ebay Canada.  All views and opinions are my own. ~

Have you checked out ebay’s new MyMix feed?  Its their new way to shop for your favourite trends, utilizing an image focused feed based on your favourite (and past) search terms!  ebay has always put a great focus on images for search results, but their latest website incarnation makes it really simple to find the items that you love most.   We now have a much easier way to purchase our favourite items at those always phenomenal prices that ebay has!

And the feed makes it really easy to customize.

My Current MyMix Feed

My feed has an broad collection of fashion, beauty and technology auctions, ’cause hey, those are the things that I love most, so I only view the items that I want to see. If you’re more into home decor, cooking, gardening, or pets, your feed will look so much different from mine!

ebay's MyMix Helps You Find Current Trends

I can’t believe how many items I’ve recently bid on, ’cause I’ve been watching my MyMix feed like a hawk since I first set it up (*cough* 14  items in 48 hours and counting….)  There are so many trendy items on sale at ebay that it’s easily going to become one of my main go to places to shop now that they’ve switched the way we can view auctions!  It’s just so much easier to find exactly what I’m looking for!

Items that I’ve recently found and love…

Gotta love a nice flow-y top that will be perfect for summer months!

Light a sexy top for summer!

Did you know that emerald green is the colour for 2013?  These gorgeous earrings will stay trendy all year long!

Emerald green, colour for 2013!

And this car is just all kinds of awesome, LOL!  It wouldn’t even work on a 4G network, but somehow I can’t seem to hold that important bit against it.  Its just too cool for me to care! 😉  And who wouldn’t want a cell phone for 11 cents?

Too cool cellphone on ebay.

 

Like what a lot of social media sites use today, ebay has this neat “new discovery” feature so that you don’t have to keep hitting the browser’s refresh button to see if there are new things to view in your feed.  I knew that there were a whole bunch of users selling goods on ebay, but my discovery bar always has something new to view every few minutes!  Its crazy how quick new items show up to view and enjoy!

New ebay MyMix Format

 

How to Get Your Feed Set Up

This is quite possibly my favourite part of using MyMix to find new things to love.  Creating the feeds is just so easy to do!  When you’ve logged into your ebay account, you should see “My feed” around the middle of the screen, with an Edit button right beside it.  Click on Edit, and then type a specific trend that you’re looking for.  It could be something specific like, “Floral print jeans size 14”, “Smashbox foundation light”, “Coach Ashley Hand Drawn Scarf Print Carryall”, “Jimmy Choo size 9” or as simple as “smartphone”, “iPhone 4”, “Vera Wang”, or “door knobs”.  You can also refine the searches to be a specific as possible to your needs with the drop down selections just under the search box; like changing the condition of the item, if you have a preference and the price point you’re willing to purchase up to (Why view the $700 iPhone 4 entry if you’re only willing to spend $150 at most?)  This feed is obviously brand spanking new, so there will be changes made at any given notice.  I’m hoping for more refining options, like adding colour or material choices.

New #MyMix Feed to Search for Favourite trends

ebay had three of their favourite trend-setting shoppers to develop inspirational feeds that look oh so pretty!  Check out their pages if you need search terms inspiration to find the items you’re really looking for!

Ready for a giveaway?? ebay has graciously provided a $100 gift card for a lucky Geek with Style reader to WIN! WOOT! Enter below and good luck! 🙂

Oh I love that!!!! I love that you can set things up b/c Amazon only goes by things I’ve searched for or purchased.  So I get a lot of items I’ve already reviewed or items my hubby would like b/c I bought gifts for him 😛 I don’t mind a mix but it’s not.  This seems cool!
