In an effort to help sellers drive interest and sales to their products and services, eBay have today launched two new features: eBay Profiles and eBay Collections.
EBay have made a move to become more social with the creation of user profiles. All users, whether buyer or seller, have access to a customisable profile page.
Users can write a short description of themselves or their business, upload a logo or profile picture as well as add a new profile cover. The eBay profile cover is similar to the Facebook’s cover images and shows off a user’s style perfectly.
User Profiles contain:
- User description
- Information about a seller or buyer
- Feedback information
- Links to items for sale and store link
- A Profile Cover
- New sized logo
EBay have also introduced Collections; Collections allow buyers and sellers to create a social gathering of products that they like or find interesting.
Think of it like Pinterest for eBay products, users can build Collections of complimenting products or group products by a theme, or just create a set of products they desire.
Simply click add to collection from a listing and eBay automatically builds a lovely looking page with all your collected products.
You can add you own comments and description to be displayed on your collection page and choose to make the collection public or keep it private.
Public Collections also have the ability to “trend” on eBay and will be displayed on the eBay homepage for the world to see.
