Shopping with your Smartphone - eBay Mobile

I've been an eBay member since 1997. It's hard to imagine but I received a congratulatory email from them recently on our 15th anniversary. In a way, eBay was my gateway drug to online shopping. I keep multiple searches on hand and buy most of the kids' and my own clothes there. I've only had two iffy experiences in all that time and both were down to shifty sellers and were resolved via PayPal. It would be an understatement to say that I'm a fan.




Now that mobile technology has become an integral part of online shopping, eBay keeps pushing the envelope with their app offerings. The main eBay mobile app provides an on-the-go shopping portal as well as allowing you to snap pictures to post items for sale wherever you are. If you're a procrastinating seller like me, this is invaluable because it saves so much time with uploading photos and editing and writing descriptions. 

The RedLaser app is fantastic to use wherever you shop to scan barcodes, QR codes, UPC codes and more to find the best deals on eBay, online or in your local area. I also really like using RedLaser to scan items that I already have at home and need to restock, so I can find the lowest prices.


If you're a gearhead, the eBay Motors app will be your best friend. Keep track of the parts you're looking for by opening your own Garage: just enter your VIN numbers from your cars or motorcycles and you can customize searches to your own needs. You can even keep a Dream Vehicle search if you're looking for the one that got away.



My personal favorite is the eBay Fashion app. You can search designer trends and find similar styles for a bargain on eBay, peruse weekly Style Story features, or use the eBay Image Swatch to snap photos of your inspirations and match them to listings on eBay. Or feed your fashion obsession with the limited-time sales in the Fashion Vault. Love!!!
