eBay community users are reporting experiencing this problem again - possibly specific to the iOS version of the eBay app.

Re: Price Guide For Trading Cards Disabled?
Sadly, it appears to have gone down again this month. Are others having an issue again, too? I’d take a screenshot but it’s literally the same as the OP (minus the Trout).

It appears I am having issue getting the price guide to show up on iPhone app. Started about a week or so ago, just doesn't appear in searches anymore. App is fully up to date and also tried uninstalling/reinstalling, nada. Even the broadest searches don't bring up the guide banner. Think it might be broke.

I've tagged eBay community staff for assistance and will update once the issue has been confirmed resolved.

This appears to have been a temporary error. eBay has confirmed it is resolved and I can confirm it is now showing correctly in search results again.

I'm seeing some reports on Twitter that the eBay Price Guide for trading is no longer available in the app.

I tested it out myself in the Android version of the eBay app and can confirm that the price guide information is long showing in the banner at the top like it had previously.

According to eBay, here's how it's supposed to work:

Trading Card Hub Price Guide | eBay.com
Welcome to the Price Guide beta for collecting smarter. Conduct your trades like a pro with our new easy-to-manage experience.

How do I access the price guide?
In the eBay app, simply search for the card you want and a banner at the top of the search results page will appear. Click on it to enter the price guide experience.

However, currently there is no price guide information showing when searching for common sports cards, Magic the Gathering, Pokemon, or other collectible card games.


It's not clear yet if this is a glitch or an intentional change. If it is intentional, it would be the second major feature removed from the app recently without notice - hopefully this isn't a troubling trend in the making.

eBay Disables Search By Image In Mobile App
eBay has temporarily disabled the search by image function in both the Android and iOS versions of the mobile app.

I've reached out to eBay for clarification and will update when more information is available.
