    MSE Local eBay Deals tool discussion 16th Mar 12 at 4:47 PM



    Hi all, we've built a new Local eBay Deals Mapper tool find pick-up only bargains near you.

    If you could let us know what you think, that would be fab. How are the results for you? Is there anything you'd like to see added?

    Thanks
    for your help!

    New Site Update
    I am disappointed that more items cannot be loaded on one page.

    The time limit is often only a few hours, I would like to be able to access items with a few DAYS left on the auction.

    How did it all go so wrong?
    I've used the tool for several years, and it worked brilliantly. I could check for items up to 48 hours in advance . . . probably more, if I was so minded.

    The new version is PANTS. It won't save my postcode, and on a bad day will only offer items for the next hour, with no opportunity to load more. Once in perhaps 10 tries did it allow me to load more, up to a total of 24 hours.

    If this sounds grumpy, it's because I've reported this using the report button in the app at least 5 times, and never had any reply.

    PLEASE return to the original version which worked so well for so long. If it ain't broke, don'tfix it.

    I have used this this site for several years. However, now, when I use it, I only get one page of results - usually within 24 hours. Clearly there are many more results, so why can I not see them?

    Same here
    I have used this site for ages. But now I only can access 1 page with less than 24 hours on items. Absolutely useless. Cannot MSE revert to the former format which showed ALL the items within a specific radius of one's postcode? Otherwise it is not worth using.

    Jenny,

    I can only access ONE page of results, with usually less than 24 hours to go. It is USELESS if one cannot see all the available items within a certain distance on one's postcode. Please go back to the former system - it was much better. I rarely use your site now, as it gives me such a limited response.

    NEW SITE UPDATE

    I have been using the tool for many years, and it worked absolutely fantastically - I could search for items up to several days in advance . Well done..............It was brilliant!

    However, this new version is absolutely rubbish. It doesn't save my postcode and even more infuriatingly it will only offer items for the next few hours (or even just an hour sometimes), with no opportunity to load more.

    Apologies If this sounds grumpy, but this is because I've loved using this app previously and have found it to be one of the best and most useful aids to using Ebay ever. It's been 'tampered' with to the point where it is now barely worth using. PLEASE go back to the original version which worked so well for so long.

    Please forgive the cliche, but IF IT AIN'T BROKE, DON'T FIX IT!!

    I use this tool a great deal, but unfortunately I can only get the first page - aka up to+/- 1 day to go. I used to be able to see everything that was offered to the end of time - aka 4/5 days in advance. Why can I no longer see more than 24 hrs of items for sale?

    Having seen some of the comments, I think MSE Local Deals needs to get its act into gear and let folk see ALL the available offers. Or doesn't MSE care any more? Really not sure these days.

    Totally agree
    The new MSE listing is awful. One can only see items with less than 24 hours on the clock. Not good enough.

    The new format (aka one can only see up to 24 hrs in advance of the date) is appalling. There are several other days of items, which one could bid for, which one can no longer view.

    Hopefully the format will be changed PDQ, otherwise I will lose interest.

    Kind regards,

    Anne

    Why can one only receive local items for the next 24 hours? Much better before when one could see items to the end of their time - aka 3-4 days ahead.

    NOT HAPPY WITH YOUR NEW SYSTEM!

    Only one page
    This tool is great normally, but now I find there is no facility to go to the next page or even "load more".
    Is there a fault ?.

    There doesn't seem to be as many pages as before, or the bargains.

    I would normally be posting why are you still using this but....

    Keep using it.. Yous missing the bargains and much less competition for me.

    Go on tell us how your paying their wages??

    Every page you read costs them money.
    Punctuation, Spelling and Grammar will be used sparingly. Due to rising costs of inflation.

    My contribution to MSE. Other contributions will only be used if they cost me nothing.

    Due to me being a tight git.

    After many grumps and brickbats, I just got the thing working as I would hope, more or less. OK, it doesn't give times after 24 hours (just 1 day, 2 days) and it won't remember my postcode like it once did, but this is almost as good as the original version. Oh, and it sometimes won't find the item on eBay if you click on the picture . . .

    Thank you for listening, if it's really fixed. Only time will tell . . .
