I just started using the Ebay Capsule and I think the Amazon one is so much better. I expected the Ebay one to let me enter different items id numbers but it doesn't. I need to enter a seller and get all of their listings or enter keywords and try to get the items I want to show up. I also thought that I could enter the keywords to get what I want then use a comma and enter others so I could get more than one specific item I want in one capsule. But that didn't work either. I had to make a new capsule for each specific item I wanted. Then I typed in the exact name of the item I found on Ebay.
Has anyone had better luck?
my examples of my trouble would be on my page
It just would have been so much easier if I could have just used a few capsules instead of so many.
I've had really good results using the eBay capsule.
Have you considered using a plus or minus sign in front of certain keywords to insist upon or exclude certain terms?
I tried the minus sign and my original item that I wanted would also disappear. But the plus sign I never noticed to try. I will give that a shot thanks. So do you use a comma then plus sign and the next keyword or just the plus sign? Well I can probably try both and it won't hurt anything.
Using the - is so something doesn't get picked up so obviously you want to be careful about it.
Example. If I wanted Dragon Ball comic books I would write "dragon ball" - z -gt.
Because I wouldn't want to get the alternate series (Z and GT).
couldn't you just do 4 different capsules for 4 different things. Sure you would have the ebay logo on your page 4 times, but if it increases revenue it is worth it.
Adding the plus sign didn't seem to work both with or without a comma in front. I guess I will just stick with making multiple capsules. But thanks everyone for your help.

I think that HP should discontinue Ebay capsules. The earnings are pitiful at best. Instead of Ebay I am sure that HP could use another advertiser/provider in its place.
