I just added this 7/22 sale ebay listing: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Phish-Las-Vega ... Swp3tc8Uw1
to this eb sale history : https://expressobeans.com/members/detai ... 12/history
Ebay says it sold for 199, the eb adder said it sold for 150, I checked it here: http://www.watchcount.com
and watchcount says it sold for 199

Regarding the Phish sale above, the ebay seller verified to me that it sold for $150 (database is correct)

I have a few ideas on what's going on with watchcount. It looks like this was a $199 auction with best offer enabled and watchcount is only being fed the auction starting price. I've sent watchcount.com a note and a small overdue donation from years of usage. Will followup here when/if they reply.

I don't want to jinx it and say the database is never wrong but I in all my dubious digging over the years I haven't found an instance where the data being fed from eBay to EB was flat out wrong. Sometimes it looks wonky when there's a multiple quantities available or when a seller submits/accepts a best offer and watchcount only shows the starting price. Might have seen a few other oddities but nothing recurring.

Either way keep please double checking and to keep EB on it's toes. Goal here is to get things right and as always we count on everyone on the site to help with that.

---

thanks to everyone for all the correction entries and sorry I haven't been as available as I used to be to help. big thanks to younevrknow & jkw3000 for keeping everything on track for awhile now

Ebay is blocking best offer fudge again, which means if any best offer gets accepted, it prolly won't show up correctly in watchcount. It is a bit weird that that one is with a bid though.

It used to be easy to access from the uk site with the proper url, which I think was where watchcount was pulling it from. Now it can't even be accessed from the UK site as far as I can tell.

FYI regarding using watchcount to verify best offers:
Jay from Watchcount wrote:Yes, we're having a problem with eBay's API data feed for completed items, which includes proper Best Offer pricing. This is something only eBay can fix, and they have been notified, but it's taking them a while to get to.

Please run a quick search (of anything) on our Completed Listings tool -- then review the yellow alert box at the top, which has more information on this eBay bug. What it explains also applies to the item lookups that you're referring to.

There's also the matter of this new feature that eBay recently offered, applicable to the item you mentioned -- Best Offers on auction-style items. I'm still unsure how compatible our website is with that kind of item sale. Traditionally, Best Offers could only be made on a BIN/FP item, until 2018 sometime.
