eBay has announced an update to its iOS and Android app that makes it possible to list items for sale in seconds. Sellers just need to scan the barcode or type the description of the item they want to sell, select its condition, and click 'List your item'.

Sellers find the product they are listing by scanning in the barcode or typing a description, selecting the condition and clicking “list your item.” With 170 million active buyers in search of items, everyone can easily make money by selling on eBay.

“At eBay, we’re dedicated to delivering a seamless and efficient selling experience for both first-time and seasoned sellers alike,” says Kelly Vincent, eBay’s VP of Consumer Selling Product & Engineering. “This latest update continues to leverage eBay’s structured data, which helps catalogue the 1.1+ billion items on the platform, to instantaneously populate product details, pricing and shipping information in the listing flow. Not only does the catalogue facilitate a superior listing experience, it enables buyers to easily find the great deals offered by our sellers. This is one of many enhancements we’ll be making this year. We’ll continue to leverage structured data and new technology developments to help our sellers ‘get it sold.’”

eBay says that in the U.S, alone, a TV, video or home audio item is purchased every 3 seconds and a smartphone is purchased every 5 seconds.

You can download eBay from the App Store for free.
