eBay Adds RSS Capability to eBay Stores

Email This Story to a Friend

eBay is set to announce a new feature in Stores. Storeowners are now able to create an RSS feed of Store inventory so buyers can see when new items have been listed using RSS readers. RSS is an increasingly popular way for Internet users to receive instant content updates from various websites or sources in one central location. Many classifieds and comparison-shopping sites offer RSS feeds by type of item and location to make it easier for shoppers to be notified when an item they are looking for is listed. eBay Store owners must set the RSS preference for their stores within My eBay in order to enable the ability to offer an RSS feed of their store inventory.
