Understanding My eBay Purchases History

If you want to keep track of or remember items you’ve bought or won on, your purchase history is the perfect place. For whatever reason, you might need to review items you’ve bought for details like price, order status, and estimated delivery date. Your eBay purchase history contains all your past orders from the last three years and helps you manage them. An item will only appear in your order history if you were logged into eBay when buying or winning it. Guest purchases won’t show up.

Why Can’t You See Some Previous Orders on eBay?

There are three primary reasons why a specific order might not be visible:

  1. Guest Order — Items bought as a guest won’t show up in your Purchase history. To track a guest order, check the email eBay sent you with the order confirmation.
  2. Listing May Have Violated eBay Policy — If a listing violates eBay’s policies, it may be removed. If you’ve already ordered and paid for a deleted listing, eBay will email you with instructions on how to proceed.
  3. Order Exceeds the Three-Year Limit — eBay only displays eBay recent purchases from the last three years. If you bought the item more than three years ago, it won’t appear in your purchase history.

Other Ways to View Your eBay Purchase History

If you want to see your purchase history beyond three years or can’t find a specific item, try these three helpful alternative methods.

PayPal and Online Wallets

If you use PayPal or other online wallets for your eBay purchases, you can check your wallet history for transactions dating back to any time. Download a statement of transaction activity from PayPal for up to the past seven years. Visit this support page for more information. Gather all transactions and record them in an Excel spreadsheet to keep your records organized.

Email Notifications

Each time you buy something on eBay, you receive an email notification. To consolidate your records, archive these emails in a dedicated folder on Gmail or export them to an Excel spreadsheet. If you can’t find an item in your Purchase History, search your inbox for the corresponding email.

Request Data from eBay

Lastly, you can request data directly from eBay, essentially asking them for “my eBay purchases list.” Go to the My eBay Account tab, then under Personal Info, click on ‘Request your eBay data’. This request will include your full eBay purchase history since you created an account. It may take a few days for the data to be ready for download.

To see all of your eBay purchases, log in to your eBay account and click on the “My eBay” tab at the top of the page. From there, click on “Purchase history” on the left-hand side of the page. You will be able to see a list of all your recent purchases.

Another possibility is that the purchases are too old and have been archived by eBay. In this case, you can try searching for the item in your archived purchase history. Additionally, it’s possible that the items were purchased on a different platform or through a different account. If you’re still having trouble finding your purchases, you can contact eBay’s customer support for assistance.
