If Amazon has just released its price comparison app for iPhone and iPod Touch in preparation for the Black Friday deals and other Holiday shopping gigs, eBay too is joining the party by updating its iPhone and iPod Touch app. The updated eBay iOS app is bringing in some good features for both eBay buyer and seller including – barcode scanning and a faster way for sellers to list their items.
Using RedLaser barcode-scanning technology, the updated eBay app bridges in-store and mobile shopping experience. This allows us to scan barcodes while in various stores and compare these prices with the prices offered by eBay sellers – hence giving us an informed decision when making a purchase. The app covers various merchandise such as electronics, movies, and videogames. What’s good about all this is that right after finding out that eBay has the same products available for a much lower price, you can order the products right there and then by using the eBay app.
If you’re an eBay seller, eBay mobile app lets you research ongoing sales trends, quickly list your items and manage them using your iOS device. You can also search for completed listings to find out what similar items were recently sold on eBay. Like when doing comparison check, eBay mobile also lets sellers scan their products and use the information yielded by the app for listing the products on eBay. This process takes only a minute or even less. For faster posting of some items which are already available on eBay, the app lets you use the “Sell One Like This” option. Listing your item through this option lets you populate your listing with information including category and item condition.
Other features of the updated eBay mobile app include – quick view, buyer protection, instant access to deals, quick PayPal payment option, saved searches, reminders, and pull-to-refresh. You can check out the eBay mobile video after the product link below.
