eBid Auction Site Launches Mobile Apps

Online auction site eBid.net has launched a mobile app for buyers and sellers. eBid co-founder Gary Sewell said the new mobile apps for both Apple and Android users offer users a convenient way to buy and sell in over 20 countries worldwide. “The convenience of browsing and shopping from just about anywhere opens up a huge new market of potential buyers and sellers which we are very excited about for both the near and far futures.”

Founded in the UK in 1999, eBid.net offers a variety of listing formats. Sellers who wish to use the mobile apps to list items can add a title, price and photo, list the item and it will be placed up for sale.

The official eBid iOS App is available in the Apple App Store. It is optimized for iPhone and iPod but is fully compatible with iPads as well.

The official eBid Android App is also now available in the Google Play Store for Android. Optimized for phones, it is also fully compatible with tablets.

Sellers had been requesting mobile apps for eBid for some time, a fact mentioned by some sellers commenting in the Sellers Choice Awards just last month – “The lack of the mobile/tablet apps which if they were introduced would increase my sales significantly,” said one eBid seller.
