HI DARLINGS! As you can imagine I am always shopping for something. It can be something for the office, the studio, personal or for the family. And because I am a thrifty sorta girl, I always look to get the price I can. I partnered with eBay to try out the new eBay ShopBot, and I was all over it!
So let me tell you what it is and how it works. eBay ShopBot is like your own personal shopping expert, right inside of your Facebook Messenger. Browse curated collections, or find something specific by texting what you are looking for or be even uploading a pic of something you have saved on your phone! What is so amazing is that it is really like I am texting someone who instantly responds to my request. I can upload a picture of a dress or a handbag and it will immediately start looking for similar items to show me, then as if that wasn’t the coolest, it will then ask me what color I am looking for or what my price range is. I love eBay, so having this at my fingertips is really convenient and makes me a smarter shopper.
It is so easy to start using, let me show you.
eBay ShopBot works best on your phone but I can do it from my laptop too. Follow these simple steps to get started:
- Get the Facebook Messenger app for iOS or Android
- Add “eBay ShopBot” as a Friend
- Click “Start Shopping” above to get a message from ShopBot
- In Facebook Messenger, take a picture of an item or type in a word to get started
The best part is that you can text it a picture of what you’re looking for, and it will try to match it for you.
I was looking up a sewing machine this morning so I typed “Sewing Machines” right in my Facebook messenger.
eBay ShopBot then asks me what brand I was looking for, what my price range was and then sent me a ton of great options.
If I want to check out one of the picks I can click on it and a new view comes up with details.
I can’t even tell you how helpful this has been for all sorts of things, I even found some vintage patterns I had been hunting down! Do yourself a favor and start using ShopBot now and make sure to come back and tell me what you think!
