eBay is celebrating the 100 millionth listing on a mobile device with a gigantic $25,000 sweepstakes and the fun starts TODAY!
Though I'm a huge fan of eBay—I've been buying and selling for well over 10 years—I have not made the most of the eBay Mobile app. Sure, I've used it to do things like:
- See how my listed items are doing.
- Answer questions from buyers.
- Keep up with auctions I'm watching (I may have bid on and won a Samsung Galaxy S II while sitting in Nathan's EMBA class)
But as of this week I had yet to list an item using eBay Mobile.
Holy crap was it ever easy.
I had hoped to list a Nintendo DS3 game (still in original packaging) but couldn't find it (story of my life), so I opted to try the eBay Mobile app to list a fabulous pencil skirt from EXPRESS. I had purchased two and though I wear the black one all the time, I can't seem to color coordinate the brown one with anything in my closet.
I took me about 5 minutes to snap the photo, add pertinent information (e.g., new with tags, retail price, skirt length, fabric), choose a shipping option and list the item.
Sadly, I did all this before the official launch of eBay's $25,000 seller-bration. Fortunately I still have about 50 items still to list.
If you're still wondering if you should give selling via eBay Mobile a try, think about this:
As we know, parents are constantly on-the-go between soccer practice, carpool, errands and never-ending household chores. Time is precious. The eBay mobile app saves time—it allows you to snap a picture from your phone or iPad and list an item within 60 seconds. Before you leave the room your item is already accessible to millions of potential buyers worldwide and you are on your way to earning extra cash to fund a family vacation, holiday shopping or splurging on a much-needed massage.
Upgrading your iPhone? List your old iPhone while sitting in the carpool line. You can snap photos of your items at home and list when you're trying to stay awake while waiting outside your daughter's viola lesson whenever it's convenient.
Here are the details:
- Anyone who lists an item between September 5th and 14th via the eBay Mobile app is entered to win $25,000.
- If you are a new lister, you need to follow this link to get registered and download the app.
- The winner will be selected by eBay and notified within 6 weeks.
So...go ahead and download the app to list an item and get entered to win!
