eBay is full of products that you can buy right now or somewhere in the future. And it’s common for people like me to keep browsing multiple products on eBay even though we have no intention of buying them any time soon. We do this out of curiosity or just to pass our time in office. However, this same addiction bites back when our recently viewed section is full of those same items we don’t really want to spend our money on.

So, in that situation, the best thing you can do is clear your recently viewed items on eBay. And the purpose of writing this article is to guide you through the process to do that.
