Curated Shopping: eBay To Introduce Curation Features This Fall

Curated Shopping: eBay To Introduce Curation Features This Fall | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

eBay hired a Chief Curator from Bureau of Trade and will be introducing new social features to the site this fall, including Pinterest-like collections and Facebook-like follow buttons. Take a look in our exclusive sneak peek.

Robin Good's insight:



According to Ina Steiner on eCommerceBytes.com eBay has hired Michael Phillips Moskowitz to act as Chief Curator and Editorial Director and will be launching in the coming weeks its own curated collections features.


To see some of the upcoming curation features that eBay is going to offer to facilitate recommendations and trusted shopping among eBay 120 million active users, go and check out http://www.ebay.com/usr/ohjoystudio who is likely a beta user having already access to them.


"On her eBay Profile page, you can see her collections presented in very much the style of Pinterest boards."


Curated shopping collections are a powerful trust-enhancing method to help buyers share their know-how while helping others make more informed choices. eBay is only one among many other large online e-shops (Etsy and Amazon have both recently introduced similar features) to make curation features available to its users.



Interesting. Informative. 7/10

eBay Goes The Pinterest Way and Allows You To Discover and Curate Your Favorite Products

eBay Goes The Pinterest Way and Allows You To Discover and Curate Your Favorite Products | Content Curation World | Scoop.it


Robin Good: eBay has gone the Pinterest way by redesigning its web interface and allowing you to curate your preferred product categories as well as more specific parameters like the price range you are interested in, whether you want new or used items or prefer auctions to "buy-now" offerings. 


"Everything now centers on a Pinterest-like feed of featured, personalized, and self-curated products."


WebProNews reports: eBay says that the feed will show users “a collection of items selected for you, based on your shopping history or your own personal interests.” When a logged-in user first accesses the feed, they are given the opportunity to “follow” certain types of product lines as well as connect their feed to their Facebook interests.


eBay officially announced: “Today we begin to introduce a series of significant new features and enhancements for our customers. We’re delivering a cleaner, contemporary look and feel; a more intuitive, convenient way to browse, decide and buy – both globally and locally; and a new personal way to curate your own shopping experience and discover items perfect for you...” 


To test the new eBay curated feed, interface redesign and new logo, head to eBay.com (US version) and you will be immediately offered to select five product categories you are interested in.


The new eBay also allows users to integrate their Facebook account as well as their PayPal one to make it easier and faster to sell and buy on the popular online marketplace.
