  • Ebay Simplifies the Commerce Experience By Killing Off Valet, Motors, and Fashion Apps

    On Monday, Ebay announced major changes to its iOS application offerings in the iOS App Store. The company will be killing off its Ebay Valet, Ebay Fashion, and Ebay Motors applications with the intention of leaving just the basic Ebay application for the iOS platform.

    Despite mentioning in a press release that Ebay is doing this to "simplify the commerce experience," it's clear that this is a move by Ebay to reduce the work load on its developers. The main Ebay application took eons to receive an update with iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch support, suggesting that the developers behind the applications are unable to keep up with consumer demand and Apple's latest product releases.

    1. The eBay Valet app will be shutting down in the coming weeks, and sellers can still get the same great service at ebay.com/valet or use the selling tools within the core eBay apps.

    2. The eBay Fashion app will be decommissioned in the coming weeks;

    3. The eBay Motors app will be decommissioned later this year, and we aim to bring the rest of the best of the Motors app magic to the core eBay apps through this transition!
    Ebay Valet and Ebay Fashion have already been pulled from the iOS App Store with the intent of their functionality winding down in coming weeks. The Ebay Motors application is still available in the iOS App Store at this point in time, although it's functionality won't be shut down until later this year, as Ebay notes.

    The official Ebay application can be downloaded for free from this App Store link.
