New Tech Tools from eBay Make Holiday Shopping Fun (and fast - and affordable!) Again

No matter how much you love to give, endless lines at the mall and the complication of coordinating purchases with friends and family can dampen the holiday spirit. Fortunately, eBay has some of the most-downloaded apps and new, breakthrough online shopping tools to help you find the best deals on the hottest items -- fast.

eBay Group Gifts (new):
  • Unlike anything else available online today, eBay Group Gifts integrates eBay, Facebook and PayPal to let you use the power of your own social network to share the spirit (and cost) needed to give someone the perfect gift
  • Identify a gift and split it with your friends
  • eBay can even suggest ideas based family and friends’ interests posted to Facebook
  • Check out the YouTube video to find out exactly how it works

Unleash Your Smartphone -- Shop on the Go:
  • eBay’s wide variety of apps makes it easy to find deals while on the hunt (or in your PJs), all with the tap of your finger
  • Join 13 million other active mobile users to find anything, anywhere, anytime – you can even compare prices while standing in line at the mall
  • Comparison shop with Red Laser or buy your kids gifts from the eBay app under 30 seconds, and get it mailed to your house. No parking lots or long lines.

Love to Give:
  • Now that shopping is fun again, celebrate the joy of gift giving by capturing “unwrap attacks” (those unforgettable, uncontrollable emotional moments that occur when someone receives the perfect gift)
  • Comedian Samantha Bee and correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, will report on a series of original webisodes
  • Record and upload your own video to the Love to Give gallery or use the shop-able Facebook “Unwrap Attack Creator” application

Need gift ideas? Browse eBay’s 200,000+ live listings – from coveted gadgets to vintage jewelry – at eBay’s Gift Spot or shop like a celeb by getting involved in eBay’s celebrity auctions for charity with folks ranging from Bill Clinton to Kim Kardashian.

And, stay tuned for unbeatable “25 Days of Deals” November 26 through December 20. Deals will feature top products from holiday hot lists to accessories, and stocking stuffers Deals include a MacBook, Ugg boots, and a Barnes and Nobles Nook.
