E-commerce and online marketplaces are usually the best places for selling and buying products and services. It is always convenient when consumers can easily enjoy shopping experience while making transactions in the comfort of their homes. But when someone new first tries such sites and apps online, they are usually confused. Buyers and sellers are lost and have found it a pain to list products for an auction bidding or sale. One such app and site is eBay. However, eBay is making an effort to rid consumers of such hassles especially sellers.
eBay is upgrading its app version to make the process easier for sellers by adding features such as scan barcodes for selling items. It is mostly aimed at “new sellers” who might not be familiar with how the platform works. Though eBay had the barcode scan for a while, it was only aimed at buyers who wanted to compare products and ensure secure payment. Buyers could find a specific product in a matter of seconds by making use of the barcode scans while ensuring item condition.
Similarly, the new barcode scan for sellers helps them in auto-filling and listing product information for eBay along with scanning the product and showing item condition. All of the auto-filled information can be edited leaving for some creative freedom and customer power to sellers. After that, eBay uses a mix of data and analytics to decide on an item price based on buyer psychology and trends. So when a buyer chooses a product from a specific seller, eBay recognizes the product from the barcode scan, providing the buyer with an accurate listing, condition, pictures, and price of the item.
