    i have deposited a week in II for an ongoing search. Have I lost my chance to purchase e plus or can I purchase later?

    You can purchase eplus up to 5 days from the date the actual match/exchange is made. So if you find out on October 1 that your ongoing search matched on September 31, you can add eplus up until October 5.

    I think you can also go in to the My History section and look at the Exchange tab and find the request at the very bottom. I think there is an option to add ePlus at this time. Though it isn't really necessary, because as said, you can add it up to five days after confirmation. I really would never add it before confirmation anyway.

    I agree that it is not strategic to add it in advance. You may get exactly what you want and not need to change.
    Once you get the confirmation, you may know whether there is uncertainty surrounding the resorts or dates, and you may wish to mitigate the risk by purchasing the e-plus retrade option at that point.

    There are two advantages to purchasing it in advance, even though I never do it. The first is you lock in the current price, because it will go up. The second is if you get a match and do not notice the email, or you get hit with bad luck and they never sent the email, you could miss the window by the time you notice you had a match.
