Search Reports

The Search Report is used for viewing pending and completed searches which you have initiated through the Profit Scraper Item Finder tool. 

From the main search reports page, you can:

  1. See your history of past searches, including search criteria and search status.
  2. You can also click the View button on each search in the Actions column to view a detailed list of items included in the search.

Please note: Searches are deleted after 10 days. If you need to save the results of a search you can export your search reports to a CSV file (option on dropdown in the top right hand corner of the report as shown below).

Explanation of columns on Search Reports page

Report Column Description
Seller ID Here you can see the seller which you have scraped. 
Source This column shows the source store, on which the seller was found originally.
Criteria A very valuable column as this provides a summary of the search criteria you have provided while working with the item finder. 

You can verify the details you had provided before performing the search. Should you wish to repeat a search, you can click on the Repeat Search button, which will take you back to the item finder while remembering the previous search criteria.
Items Found Shows the total number of items found for this search. A more detailed view on the items can be seen when clicking on the View button in the Actions column.
Status This column shows the status of your search which can be 'Pending', 'Processing', 'Completed' or 'Deleted'. 


After clicking the View button on a search, you will see another page with all the items found for that search.

We will now explain the columns each within the search report details page:

Search Report Details

Report column Description
eBay Listing Title This column shows the title of the listing as it was at the time of the search. Clicking on the item title will take you to the live listing on eBay.
Source URL Shows the link of the item on the source page, e.g. Amazon. Clicking on the 'view' link will open the listing on the source store. 
eBay Image The main image of the listing as seen on eBay at the time of the search. Hovering over the image will increase the size of the image for better comparison.
Source Image The main image of the listing as seen on the source store, e.g. Amazon, at the time of the search.  Hovering over the image will increase the size of the image for better comparison.
Source Price Shows the price of the listing as found on the source store at the time of the search. This may therefore be different if you check the item source price now.
Profit The item profit is the profit that the scraped seller would have made if he had sold the item for the price it sold at and bought the item for the source price of the item at the time the search was performed. It's also based on the eBay fees / Paypal fees that YOU have set in your Profit Scraper marketplaces settings which may be different than what the scraped seller is paying.

Generally a profit of between 0.50 and 5 £/$/EUR is an indication that the seller is using eBay/Amazon arbitrage and you may therefore want to copy his profitable items to sell yourself.
Reviews Showing the total reviews of the item on eBay plus the average review rating. This is data taken from eBay since the item was first listed.

Generally a higher review score means the item is more likely to sell.
Sold Count Showing the total sold count of the item on eBay. This is data taken from eBay since the item was first listed.

Generally a sold count of at least 1 (and is an indication that the item has sold and therefore has a good chance of selling again.
Watch Count Showing the total watch count of the item on eBay. This is data taken from eBay since the item was first listed.

Generally a higher watch count, means a greater chance that the item will be popular and therefore more likely to sell if listed by you.
Tip! Use our advanced filters to refine the items on your search reports. Find these filters in the top left hand corner on your search details reports by clicking on the Advanced Filters button.
