How To Create Custom Watchlist On eBay

I was thinking today about what I could add to my eBay how-to article series. Yes, I have been writing more on eBay, and here are the past ones you can check out:

Now that we are caught up, let me go into what the next eBay how-to is about. After thinking for a while, I have come up with a good one. I’m going to show you how to create a custom watchlist on your eBay account. This came up when I was adding some NES games to my watchlist. The boring name “Watchlist,” was the default and if you know me I like to customize things to show my personality. Plus, it would be nice to organize what I’m watching. Well, this article is no different. I’m going to show you how to create your own custom list.
