Anyone figured out the pattern or reason why they remove results?

Often the hidden results have the actual product/seller that I want.

Looking for an item and suddenly they all start at £70, but I know there are some for almost half that. Google finds them with no issues.

UK site and listings not US/.com etc. So not that.

    I've no idea, perhaps they are the lower sellers as deemed by eBay to be poor?

    You can just tick the option not to remove results when that pops up.

    Thanks,, in this instance a lower score could have been a cause.

    Not the best seller at 98.7%. But I have bought from worse (with crossed fingers) :) EDIT: just checked feedback score just 70

    I will have to keep an eye on it and see if its just the feedback %, or linked to the sellers quantity.

    Seems the item is now missing completely, shows in my watch list but does not show on searches even if i select show all. Odd.
