|What is a feed?|
A "feed" is a summary of Web content that is updated on a regular basis. It allows users to keep informed of a Web site's latest changes. The feed format that eBay uses is Really Simple Syndication (RSS) 2.0.
Feeds help eBay make content more accessible, and they allow you to easily see new content. A summary or "headline" view lets you quickly scan recent content changes, and headlines are linked to their appropriate content.
What does the RSS feed on this page contain?
The search results RSS feed contains items based on the search criteria that you’ve entered. This feed will be updated based on how often you have set your reader to retrieve data from eBay and any restrictions the reader may have on how often it retrieves information. Usually, you will get new listing information every 30 minutes.
Since many readers cache information and poll at most every 30 minutes, listings that appear on the RSS feed will not have an end time less than 15 minutes from the moment the feed was retrieved. Therefore, if your reader requests the feed now, the first item will end in at least 15 minutes.
