How do we add Marketplace/eBay subscriptions under the new system? I see that old ones can be removed through the subscriptions manager, but I don't see how new ones can be added.

Hi Todd,

This is a swag, but I think that if you check the 'want to buy' box it lets you know when auctions or marketplace items come up.

It doesn't seem like it. I've had Napoleon's Triumph on "Want to Buy" for months, but have never seen a Marketplace notification. That seems unlikely. In fact, that was exactly the reason I used "Want to Buy" in the first place - to track games that were still common enough that I didn't want to watch every Marketplace listing.

subscribe to the item with the subscribe button, then click "edit subscription" from the pulldown next to the unsubscribe link. From there, it should be clear.

Aha... I see. Thanks Daniel!

Might I suggest that "Subscribe" links be added to the Marketplace and eBay menu bars? Besides being more visible, it would follow the general pattern of "Click subscribe near the thing you want."

This sounds like a good idea. I don't know how quickly we can implement it (other things have a higher priority right now) but I'll definitely add it to the wish list. I'm not one of the programmers, though, so I certainly can't promise anything myself.
