How long does it take for my item to appear on eBay?
Posts: 1
Registered: ‎01-10-2013

After posting an item for sale almost two hours ago, it still does not appear in search results when I look for it.  I've searched for the specific name of the product and it does not appear in my search results.  The name of the product is both in the title and description.  

 

Once you list an item with eBay, how long does it take before it appears in a search result?  I can't even find my item under the category it is listed under.  Is there a delay from posting time to when it appears on eBay's website?
