eBay Home Page For New Users

In: Information

31 Jan 2009

On the top of the home page across virtually every eBay page, as a matter of fact is the Navigation Bar. This bar includes links to the major sections of the eBay site: Buy, Sell, My eBay, Community, and Help. When you click one of these links, you go to the main page for that section.

Below the Navigation Bar is the Search box. This is what you use to search for items you might want to buy; enter your query into the box and then click the Search button. More advanced search options are available by clicking the Advanced Search link.

Along the left side of the home page is a collection of links to specific eBay item categories and specialty sites.

It is better to focus on the links along the top and left side of the page.  The big chunk of space in the middle and to the right of the page is probably best ignored; it’s nothing more than a big advertisement for the category or items.
