eBay India has announced its first mobile app for iPhone, which is now available for free download from the iTunes App Store . The eBay iPhone app allows iPhone and iPod Touch users to shop, browse and compare prices seamlessly on the go as well as log onto their eBay account. The iPhone app allows consumers to browse through over 2 million products before they choose their dream gadget or fashion accessory.
Muralikrishnan B, country manager, eBay India, said, “We are delighted to announce this exclusive iPhone app where shoppers can access eBay India on the move, anytime, anywhere even in the midst of a shopping mall. We believe that this would empower the Indian consumer by enabling them to reach for their mobile phone before reaching for their wallet so that they can get the best deal. The eBay app is extremely easy to use and offers an intuitive shopping experience. We hope through this app we can create a shopping revolution with consumers in charge.”
eBay has also a mobile web portal which was announced earlier this year.
The ‘Search’ & ‘Browse categories’ option in the eBay iPhone app lets users look for products they wish to buy. They can then click on the desired product to read its description or details of the seller. To buy the product, users can select the ‘Buy it Now’ option and confirm the purchase by selecting the ‘Commit to Buy’ option.
Payments for purchases can be done online on the www.ebay.in website through eBay India’s secure payment method PaisaPay. All purchases are secure and covered by the eBay Guarantee. Consumers can also access their My eBay account, saved searches as well reminders and messages from eBay.
