You can make it harder to find the item by putting into Archive, but you can't actually delete it.

Unless your name is Cynthia Bear, why would anybody know what you are buying anyway?

The easiest way is to change your eBay ID and don't tell anybody what the new one is.

Hmm- Some computers have under Tools "Private Browsing". This option deletes the browsing history and gives a measure of privacy to your secrets.

If you don't want anyone to know what you are buying, don't give them your user ID. Anyone can see what you won/purchased in the last 30 days.


The best thing to do is open a 2nd account for gift buying. Keep the ID and password a secret and you can shop without worry (as long as you clear your browsing history if you share a computer with the giftee).
