eBay has released a new version of its iPhone app that adds selling functionality and RedLaser barcode-scanning technology.
The updated iPhone app allows users to comparison shop by scanning barcodes and accessing a wider a variety of merchandise including electronics, movies and videogames.
“More shoppers are turning to their mobile phones to save money and time this holiday season,” said Steve Yankovich, vice president of eBay Mobile.
“We listened to our 13 million+ mobile app users and we’ve updated our eBay iPhone app to be a one stop shop for all of their holiday buying and selling needs. We continue to blur the lines between in-store and online shopping by allowing eBay shoppers to conveniently scan products to find the best deals virtually anywhere, anytime.”
Sellers can now search for completed listings to see what similar items recently sold for. In combination with RedLaser scanning technology, repeat sellers can scan a product and list it on eBay in 60 seconds or less. If a user is listing a similar item sold or selling on eBay, users can use eBay’s “Sell One Like This” feature to create a listing that is automatically populated with information like category and item condition.
