eBay India (www.ebay.in), one of the country’s leading ecommerce marketplaces, announced the eBay iPad app for India – now available for free download from the iTunes App Store. The eBay App will allow iPad users to shop, browse and compare prices easily while on the go as well as log onto their eBay India account. The app enables shoppers to search and select their favorite products from over 6 million live listings on eBay India across 2,000 categories of products in Electronics, Lifestyle, Collectibles & Media verticals.
Mr. Muralikrishnan B., Country Manager, eBay India, says, “We are delighted to announce the eBay iPad app where shoppers can access eBay India on the move and can take advantage of the iPad's stunning image resolution, large touchscreen, and on-the-go portability to deliver a revolutionary shopping experience. The eBay iPad App offers consumers an enriching eCommerce experience on their tablets & is the next step after the launch of the eBay India iPhone, Android, Windows and Nokia apps launched last year.”
Buy, sell, search right from your Apple tablet
Mr. Muralikrishnan added, “Mobile Commerce is a key focus area at eBay India. It is very likely that a majority of the next 100 million internet users in India will have their first and pre-dominant experience of internet on mobile devices, either Smartphones or Tablets. Our key focus around mobile devices in 2012 is to get greater penetration of our apps and encourage people to use this as a device to check prices before shopping offline.”
