Keeping track of listings

You can keep track of all the items you are watching or bidding on from your Watchlist, available from your My Trade Me page.

Adding items to your Watchlist
When you bid on an item it is automatically added to your Watchlist. You can also add items to your Watchlist by clicking the button on the listing page or in search results. When you add an item to your Watchlist you can select to have an email sent to you before the auction closes.

Deleting items from your Watchlist
To delete items from your Watchlist, tick the box next to the listing and click the 'Delete' button. Please note: You cannot delete items from your Watchlist that you are currently bidding on.

Filtering your Watchlist
You can filter the listings on your Watchlist by different criteria such as 'your leading bids' or 'closing soon' using the filter at the top of your Watchlist.

Adding notes to items on your Watchlist
You can add a note to each listing on your Watchlist by clicking the 'add note' link under the listing. You are the only person who can read your notes.

Recently Viewed Items
You can find your last 500 viewed items on your Recently viewed page. This feature can be turned on or off at the top of the page. Selecting No will clear your list.
