eBay to Update Mobile App for Sellers Listing via the iPad

By: Reader
Sponsored Link
Dear Ina,
Please help all of the eBay sellers trying to use the eBay app on the iPad. There is no shipping selection for "cost to be determined by buyer location."

How are we supposed to put a shipping cost in before we know where our buyer is located. This is extremely frustrating.

Thanks for your assistance.
Mike

Note from the Editor: An eBay spokesperson responded to our inquiry about Mike's question:

"We plan to update the iPad app to include the "cost to be determined by buyer location" feature. In the meantime, the seller could create a listing using the iPhone which support this feature, or revise the item using the website once it has been listed via the iPad."

Ah... more highly competent programming and thorough testing from the eBay programmers. It's amazing how much can be accomplished on their state-of-the-art Vtech and TRS-80 computers. (Honestly, I think a group of High School juniors from the AV club could do better programming on a TI pocket calculator.)

More mind blowing ineptitude, incompetence and sheer stupidity from eBay. So what's new?

Dude, seriously: "Revise the item using the website once it has been listed via the iPad?"

And then what? And then set off the Trusted Computing Initiative, which will lock my account until I buy the PayPal Security Card?

No way, San Jose.

Let's be serious here - if you are using an Ipad, with its 10'' screen, there is absolutely no problem at all just using the web-based ebay interface.

Quite a bit different if using an Iphone or Android phone - which has working apps for selling.

Personally, I can see using these devices for buying and research - and they are VERY GOOD apps - much better than Amazon, Etsy, or even Best Buy - but for selling?  Seems like listing is a bit too complex these days for the smaller screens.
