What is Saved Search?
Looking for that perfectly-sized dress or exact model of car? Didn’t manage to find it the first time around? Saved Search is for you!
With Saved Search, you can save up to three sets of search queries and filters, allowing you to access your favourite search queries easily. This is great for Carousellers who want to access listings of specific search queries at a click!
We’ll even send you push notifications to inform you when new listings that match the criteria you’re looking for are added to the marketplace.
For now, only a maximum of 3 saved searches is allowed.
How do I save my search?
To save a search, simply perform the following on your Carousell app
- Select the search bar and enter the term you’d like to save
- Tap on the “star” icon next to your search term in the search bar and there it is - you have successfully saved your search!
How do I add filters to my saved search?
Additionally, you may also add filters to your Saved Search terms:
- After you have performed a search, select Filters
- Select your desired filter ranges
- Check the “Save these filters to get alerts” box
- Select “Apply” to successfully save your search term along with the added filters
How do I manage my saved searches?
To manage your Saved Searches, while having the search bar selected, tap on “Manage” and swipe left to delete any of your Saved Searches.
How do I set notifications for my saved searches?
Unfortunately, we’ve not yet included the ability for Carousellers to personalise notifications for saved searches. However, we’ll send you a push notification daily telling you if new listings have been added to the marketplace that matches your searches! Don’t worry about spam either - we’ll send you a maximum of one push notification a day.
How can I best use Saved Search?
It’s really up to your imagination, but one way that we at Carousell are using it is to filter for a specific price on an item we’re looking for - then all we need to do is to check in on the daily notification to know if new listings are uploaded that match the price we’re hunting for! This is super useful for expensive items like luxury goods or tech toys, or even big-ticket items like cars that we’re not planning to buy them immediately.
