Using the Plugin

Add the Auction Nudge Shortcode to your WordPress site anywhere Shortcodes are supported.

Your eBay Defaults

Your eBay username and eBay site aren't required, but entering them in Settings will save you time.

Entering default eBay settings will save you from entering them each time

Using Shortcodes

Display the active eBay items of an eBay user with this Shortcode:

[auction-nudge tool="listings" sellerid="ebay_username"]

With a default eBay Username and eBay Site (for non-US sellers) you no longer need to inlude them in the Shortcode:

[auction-nudge tool="listings"]

Cascading Style Sheets

Change the appearance using simple CSS rules.

You can change the appearance of Auction Nudge by adding CSS rules to the WordPress Appearance Customize Screen. As a couple of quick examples, to make all of the Your eBay Listings links bold: a {
  color: red;

To change the alternating background colour of rows in the 'Column View' theme to red & blue: tr {
  background-color: red;
} tr.alt {
  background-color: blue !important;


If Auction Nudge is not displaying anything:

  • Read the Using the Plugin page – ensure you have everything set up correctly.
  • Check your eBay username – You can set the default in Settings > Defaults
  • Check for Ad Blockers – A common reason for Auction Nudge not loading is the use of ad blocking browser plugins (like Adblock Plus). If you are using such a plugin, disable it, or add an exception to see if Auction Nudge loads without it.
  • Disable the Caching option – By default, Auction Nudge utilises the in-built WordPress caching mechanism to improve load performance. Go to Settings > Caching and change this setting to "No" (don't worry, other caching mechanisms are still in place).
  • Check for Console errors – Auction Nudge may output an error in the browser console. Another reason for Auction Nudge failing to load on your page is JavaScript errors from other scripts.

Auction Nudge errors are usually displayed when the plugin has not been setup correctly. The following steps should do the trick:
