After a month spent in beta testing, the eBay app gets upgraded to 4.0 for Android and iOS devices that promises a more user-friendly interface and a much simpler way for newcomers to navigate through their services.
The ecommerce company is doing its best to stay in the top, along with excellent competitors such as Amazon, and now brings an update to its smartphone app that might make it simpler for both buyers and sellers to browse through their preferred services.
The updated version now offers a much more simplified user interface (UI), and a better customized user experience for each individual customer, by shifting onto the priority system and bringing forth the most active products, or latest transactions.
It makes it easier to browse through promotions, deals or events, and it’s now reportedly a much more balanced way of shopping for both sellers and buyers.
The app now has a more image-centric design than previous versions, successfully turning it into a much more accessible store-like browser, which is precisely how an online market should look like for the average user. The interface is now divided into three sections: Activity, Shop, and Sell, which allows for easier access to the specific service wished for by the customer.
The dashboard makes it quite a faster experience, especially for sellers, who can keep track of auctions and offers that have been given higher priority. It will also track users’ visiting and browsing habits.
The update was much needed in order to offer first time users a more helpful dashboard, now available for download for both Android and iOS users.
eBay has released the update just at the same time as their 20th anniversary with the public, one that is celebrated with numerous deals now available on their website. “20 Days of Deals” introduces twenty days in which users will be offered a decent amount of heavy discounts on numerous items, an even special $20 deals to keep in them with the festivities.
The sale is open for all online shoppers (including those using the aforementioned updated app), and may venture to the online market in order to browse through the discounted prices on everything ranging from electronics, to clothes, to fitness devices.
According to chief product officer of eBay, RJ Pittman, the ecommerce company is looking forward into the next twenty years, with innovating online marketing strategies and game-changing services that will keep their customers hooked.
It is “powered by technology and open to everyone”, so we may look forward to future improvements as well.
