Auction app sweeps competition aside with landslide win
Auction king eBay has stolen a march on its retail rivals to record a landslide victory in the Best Fashion & Shopping app category at the Carphone Warehouse Appys Awards 2012.
eBay’s app delivers familiar functionality from its web-based sibling, allowing users to bid for items, browse eBay’s catalogue of products for sale and add items they wish to bid for to their Watch List.
With a raft of eminently capable apps in contention for the Fashion & Shopping category, eBay swept aside its rivals, including Tesco Groceries, Net-A-Porter, Argos and Amazon Mobile to win the coveted gong.
“The adrenaline rush of an auction win beats shopping around for the best price any day of the week. The ability to put in that last gasp bid on the move, wherever you are, makes this app an early bidder’s worst nightmare,” says Andrew Harrison, CEO of Best Buy Europe.
