Once the plugin has been activated, go to Settings > Auction Nudge to set your default eBay username and eBay site. These aren’t required, but this will save you time.

Now you can add the appropriate Auction Nudge Shortcode to your WordPress site anywhere Shortcodes are supported:

<!-- To display Your eBay Listings -->
[auction-nudge tool="listings"]

<!-- To display Your eBay Profile -->
[auction-nudge tool="profile"]

<!-- To display Your eBay Feedback -->
[auction-nudge tool="feedback"]

Use the Shortcode Generator (Settings > Auction Nudge) to customise your content, or pass your options to the Shortcode like this:

<!-- Showing items for the eBay username "ebay_username" -->
[auction-nudge tool="listings" sellerid="ebay_username"]

<!-- Show 100 items, in French and disable search -->
[auction-nudge tool="listings" lang="french" maxentries="100" search_box="0"]

Nothing Displaying?

A common reason for Auction Nudge not loading is the use of ad blocking browser plugins. If you are using such a plugin, disable it, or add an exception to see if Auction Nudge loads without it.

How Often Does Auction Nudge Update?

To reduce server load, Auction Nudge does not update every time it is loaded on your site. The tools update as follows:

  • Your eBay Listings – updates every 15 minutes
  • Your eBay Profile – updates every 12 hours
  • Your eBay Feedback – updates every 12 hours

These update times aim to optimise server resources by updating the most important feeds (i.e. those displaying active eBay items) more frequently than ones that change only occasionally (i.e. profile/feedback information).

How Is Such an Awesome Tool Free?

Auction Nudge funds itself through referral commissions from eBay. As a member of the eBay Partner Network, Auction Nudge may receive anonymous referral commissions from eBay if a successful transaction occurs after clicking a link to eBay, at no cost to the user.

This means Auction Nudge is free to use and there are no ‘pay to unlock’ restrictions.

How Can I Modify the Appearance of Auction Nudge?

Please see the Using the Plugin page of the Auction Nudge website.

Where Can I Find More Help?

The following links should help with most questions and issues:

Can I Remove The Advertising Disclosure?

No. The advertising disclosure is a requirement of the eBay Partner Network and is a condition of use for Auction Nudge.

This means that if you are not happy with the Advertising Disclosure, then Auction Nudge is not the free tool for you.

Attempting to hide, obscure or modifying the disclosure puts the service at risk for all users. Therefore, Auction Nudge reserves the right to block any user who attempts to do so.

The plugin itself is brilliant, but is there a way to remove the above text: “Ad Clicking an item will take you to eBay, who may pay a referral commission if a purchase is made.” After obtaining several opinions from friends and customers, the inscription itself is a bit discouraging, not to say “scares away”, some people thinking that they will pay more than they should. Or is there a way to hide it on the page?

After trying out a couple of more sophisticated plugins that didn’t work very well, I found it easier to just use eBay and display it on my website using Auction Nudge. It’s a great idea and requires very little development knowledge.

This is a major re-working of the plugin. The Meta Box is being retired in favour of full Shortcode support.

I have attempted to make every change backwards compatible to cater for all users. Please do reach out if you have any issues after updating. Cheers, Joe.


  • Multiple Shortcodes – Add Shortcodes anywhere they are supported. Customize your content using Shortcode parameters (e.g. [auction-nudge tool="listings" lang="french" maxentries="100" search_box="0"]).

  • Meta Box – This is now a legacy feature and is not recommended! Instead, try generating Shortcodes (Settings > Auction Nudge) and adding them anywhere Shortcodes are supported, or refer to the Using the Plugin page. For backwards compatibility, even with the Meta Box disabled (Settings > Auction Nudge), each post retains it\’s Meta Box options.
  • Major design and code overhaul.
  • Many many other bug fixes and improvements.

  • Minor upgrade notification bug fix.


  • Release date: November 10th, 2017

This is a major update to the plugin. While it may not seem like it on the surface, there have been some big changes under the hood:


  • WordPress caching – the plugin now utilises the in-built WordPress caching mechanism to deliver Auction Nudge content, offering a significant performance boost.


  • Code overhaul – the plugin code has been completely refactored to make maintenance and the development of new features less sucky.
  • Documentation – the plugin documentation has been rewritten and can now be found on the Auction Nudge website.
  • Bug fixes and minor improvements.

This is a recommended update, with lots of new features and further improvements in the works.


  • Release date: April 11th, 2017

This is a major update to the plugin.


  • Category List – Allows visitors to your site to filter your items by category. When this option is enabled, a list of categories is displayed above your items (if you have items in more than one category). This allows users to filter your items by simply selecting a category from the list.
  • Listing Type Filter – Filter items by listing type filter, making it possible to just display Auction or Buy It Now items.
  • Default eBay Site – You can now specify a default eBay site on the Settings page, to save you from re-entering them on each page, post or widget where you want to use Auction Nudge.
  • AdBlock Warning – If an ad blocker is detected (which may prevent Auction Nudge from loading) a warning is displayed on relevant admin pages.


  • Keyword Filter – The “keyword” filter for the Your eBay Listings tool has been rewritten to allow for additional search operators, making this feature much more powerful.
  • Tooltips – The tooltips next to each option have been updated, are clearer and easier to use
  • Help – The help popup has been updated to be more… helpful

Plus lots of minor improvements and bug fixes 🙂
