Updated eBay App Lets You Create Listings from Your Android Phone


A recent update to the official eBay for Android app has added the final piece of the puzzle to the auction sites mobile offering. Users can now create, revise, and relist listings for sale on eBay’s site directly from their Android devices. What’s more, you get features that don’t even exist when listing items from your desktop computer. Want to quickly add basic information for an item? Barcode scanning technology provided by RedLaser makes quick work of it. Snap up to eight pictures of your auction item and then upload them via the app to complete your listing.

If that all isn’t enough, don’t worry. The update brings along your standard bug fixes, a revamped homescreen, and a more refined search. There is plenty for the buyer and seller in this one, check it out free in the Android Market now.

  1. once upon a long time ago I used to sell on eBay (Powerseller) and I would have LOVED such an app!! But now, many moons later, eBay is a disgusting, scum protecting, fee hiking piece of sh!t. Now it’s too late and I couldnt give a damn toss about this eBay app. 

  2. eBay listing fees, final value fees, paypal fees, etc. are OPPRESSIVE.  I’m done with eBay too.

  3. eBay, Magento, AliExpress, Skype, Fish, FigCard, GSI Commerce, RedLaser, Where, Milo, Fetch, PayPal, Google, Schmoogle, whatever …
    eBay’s chief headless turkey likes buying toys, none of which have done anything to improve the eBay Marketplace’s bottom line, not even in this the fourth year of his three-year turnaround.
    The fact is the rusting old hulk eBay is presently being kept afloat by the clunky PreyPal so it’s good to see these boys recently squabbling and threats to PreyPal’s online dominance now coming thick and fast. It’s interesting times ahead for all we eBay “haters” (oops, I mean “watchers”). I just hope that someone has remembered to bring the popcorn.
    PayPal is mostly registered in various places not as a “bank” or as a provider of credit but only as a “money transmitter” (like Western Union), and PayPal actually claims that they are not a “payment network”, and there is a minute degree of truth in that claim because it could, somewhat nonsensically, be claimed that they do no more than facilitate the transmission of money by riding on the back of the banks’ existing payments processing systems.
    In fact, the only thing creative about PayPal has been their use of users’ email addresses as an identifier for online payment transactions. PayPal is otherwise no more than a blood-sucking parasite on, and in the main cannot function except via, the banks’ existing payments processing systems which they access via their banker, GE Money Bank—Ugh!
    PayPal, outside of whatever will ultimately be left of the Donahoe-devastated eBay Marketplace, will undoubtedly eventually be consigned to the history books by the retail banks/Visa/Mastercard once those players get their “online” act together.
    Some people may not like “the banks” but all those participating retail banks at least supply a professionally run payments processing system—unlike PayPal’s—and even PayPal concurs with that assessment: except for intra PayPal “account” transactions, they use the banks’ payments processing systems all the time and simply could not exist without them.
    Regardless, all the above comments apply equally to all of the other third-party online “payments processors” that are emerging out of the woodwork and wanting to have access to your banking account. Unless they have formal and direct arrangements with all the participating retail banks, as do the likes of Visa/MasterCard, then the result is invariably going to be as potentially problematic as is PayPal’s clunky operation for its merchants—many of whom can tell you a sorry tale or two.

    Is that PayPal’s blood in the water, and are those “sharks”—oops, “banks”—I can see circling?
