We all love shopping on eBay for is secure online shopping and fast delivery. eBay has created a suite of new features to offer you a more personalized and inspiring shopping experience. Things you need to know before you shop on eBay. It’s called eBay Collections and it enables people to curate and group items together on eBay, to create visual stories in a way that is not only inspiring and engaging but instantly shoppable.

 eBay Collections enables consumers to bring their passions to life, and sellers to inspire new connections and attract a loyal following. Whether you are inspired by travelling, home décor, fashion trends, the latest technology or even a favourite colour, eBay Collections allows you to hand-pick products and organise them into themes to shop, share, store and re-visit whenever retail inspiration strikes. It’s like a 100% shoppable mood board.

Collections is designed to enhance the browsing, discovery and shopping experience on eBay. Shoppers can personalise their eBay experience by following expert curators, buyers and sellers across the community. With another click consumers and retailers can also share their Collections via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and email.

An Advantage For Sellers

It’s not just buyers who will love the new shopping experience, as now sellers will be able to take advantage of new-vamped stores as well as create a personalised profile allowing their customs to follow them and discover new products. Collections is already being used by retailers of all sizes to reach new audiences and provide inspired shopping experiences for their customers.

Another change to the site is the introduction of a dedicated collections homepage which has been designed to offer a much more inspired shopping experience. Visitors to the page will discover curated collections form eBay in-house curators as well as trending collections from retailers of all sizes, and buyers throughout the community.

We are listening and responding to the needs and wants of the evolving consumer who is demanding an experience that is both fun and functional”.
