eBay for Apple Watch Launches Today on App Store

eBay today released its long-anticipated Apple Watch app for the online marketplace, just over one month after Apple quietly removed the app from its list of featured Apple Watch apps after failing to launch in April. TechCrunch reports that the eBay for Apple Watch app enables buyers and sellers to receive updates and alerts for items they are tracking on the eBay storefront.

eBay Apple Watch App
eBay for Apple Watch is broken down into four simple categories that can be accessed from the app's home screen: Activity, Buying, Selling and Watching. Activity provides alerts about auctions that are ending soon, items in which you have been outbid on, items that will be shipping soon and more. Meanwhile, the Buying, Selling and Watching sections are rather self-explanatory.
"Watching is for the items you’re keeping tabs on but haven’t yet bid on. Buying lets you see an overview of those items you’re actively bidding on; and Selling is to track the items you’ve listed on eBay. Within each of these sections are the key details you would need to know at a glance – like the time left on an auction, the current price, the number of bids, item photos, etc."
eBay for Apple Watch focuses on providing quick at-a-glance information, and enables sellers to quickly reply to messages received from other users, although buyers still have the option to place bids from their wrists in just a few seconds. eBay is also updating its iPhone, iPad and Android apps with user enhancements and regional support for additional payments in Germany and India.

eBay for Apple Watch is free on the App Store and rolling out today. [Direct Link]

'The wait is over'?

Did MR get bought by BGR during WWDC and nobody noticed?


Removed that. I was mostly trying to avoid the lowercase eBay at the front of the title. Mild OCD.

(I promise we haven't been bought by BGR :p)
