eBay Valet App Hopes to Make Selling Quicker and Easier

A new eBay app has arrived on the App Store with the aim of making the act of selling items easier and quicker. eBay Valet connects sellers with valets (eBay experts), who then handle the whole process of estimating the price, taking photos, and shipping items to buyers.

In order to sell an item via the app, firstly the user will need to take a photo of the item and send it to a valet. The valet will then value the item and ask the user if they wish to sell it. If so, the user can then either receive a free box through the post or recycle a box and label they already have and send the item off to be sold. Once the item sells, the user will then get 70% of the proceeds of the sale into their PayPal account.

The eBay Valet app is available on the App Store now and is free to download.

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Ebay updated its universal iOS app yesterday to help simplify and streamline the process of buying and selling on the go. The new version includes more editing tools, extra guidance on categories, pricing, and shipping, and the ability to save multiple listing drafts.

Shopping
• iPhone 2.7 and iPad 2.2 feature new advanced search capabilities with auto-complete
• The apps also include an improved checkout experience – it’s faster, easier, and simpler to buy what you want when you want it
• New single-screen view to review and confirm payments so buyers on a mission to make a purchase can get what they want as quickly as possible
• eBay apps for iPhone and iPad now also allow guest checkout, giving first time shoppers the option to pay via credit card, with PayPal still being the quickest option to purchase

Selling
• New category, pricing, and shipping guidance make it easier and faster for new sellers to list items
• The apps will now save draft versions of multiple listings so customers can start their listing on an iPhone/iPad and finish on the web and vice versa
• New photo module makes it easier for users to add and edit photos (note: iPhone only)

Yardsellr has been quite a success story in recent times. Originally set up by three former eBay executives, Daniel Leffel, Jed Clevenger and Rachel Makool, it’s essentially eBay for Facebook.

Unlike the popular auction site, there are no auctions to be seen here. Instead sellers list items at fixed prices in different categories or ‘blocks’ as the site likes to call it. It’s an idea that has proven popular thanks to its Facebook connections making it especially useful for the female demographic that are typically most likely to use the social network. Unlike eBay the fees system also works differently with buyers being charged around ten percent rather than the seller, no doubt proving beneficial to many.

Making Yardsellr a kind of online neighborhood to buy and sell items is a neat touch so it’s good to see it spread to the App Store courtesy of the official Yardsellr app.

The app does nearly exactly what any Yardsellr user could want. Currently there’s only buying functionality but selling abilities are set to be added in an upcoming update.

For newcomers to the Yardsellr world, it’s refreshing to see rather than the impersonal side of selling that eBay offers, Yardsellr has much more of a community spirit with sellers seeming impassioned by the items they’re trying to find a new home for. There’s also a prevalence of items that will be of great interest to users of selling communities like Etsy with some fantastic hand created bits and pieces being sold alongside more commercially available goods.

Much like the website, it’s important to note that Yardsellr is only open to users within the United States. People from other nations had best hope that in the future Yardsellr will be extended further afield. It’s great to see something a bit different from the eBay norm flourish so well.

The app is available now for free.

Phil Shiller is writing back to Steve Frank about the App Store approval process issues. While we wait for Steve Jobs to return our correspondence, here’s the latest from the app store.

media0More Wolfenstein! The game was originally created by Id Software, ported to the iPhone by Firemint, and now published by EA. Delayed for nearly 2 months so as to not compete with with Wolfenstein 3D, the game was released yesterday at $4.99. A low initial price for an EA release.

It’s an interesting idea for a game. Take the Wolfenstein 3D game and add an RPG element to it. Early reader reviews are great. We’ll try to have a review up in the next couple days.

promoPlushed looks lush. Plushed, a new game from Blacksmith Games has a fantastic art style. Platformer + goth + pizza = Plushed? We’ll have to wait and see if the gameplay delivers. Take a look at the YouTube video for more. Blacksmith Games is also doing a promo where the more people that follow them on Twitter, the lower the launch price of the game will be. Expected release date is September/October.

Push, bid, push, bid. Ebay have updated their app to include push notifications for outbid alerts and watched items. You still don’t have a chance against the snipers though.
