  • Clean App, But Needs Work...

    By Pleasecopyzillow
    Biggest problem is its not a stand alone app and requires you to go back and forth between it and the eBay app. Would be much better it you could list and manage all aspects of your listing on the app. Biggest improvement I can think of would be to show the “views, bids and saves” numbers (critical information for buyers and sellers) front and center on every listing view. Zillow does this for real estate and its great! The pricing for eBay motors includes a Auto Check report as an “added value” but is worthless to classic car listings. While the new fixed price listing setup for non-dealers is not outrageous, I would prefer to have a minimal listing fee combined with a reasonable final value fee. It would result in more listings, but still generate revenue from every listing. I’ve had scammers with new (0 feedback) accounts contact me first on both of my most recent listings. EBay needs to get a handle on this if they want to maintain any lead on Craigslist and other platforms. As of now, there doesn’t appear to be a one-click method of reporting scammers.
  • Can’t navigate pictures with my mouse anymore.

    By Datawipe
    I hate when you update a app and you LOSE features rather than gain new relevant ones. For example. I just updated my app and found out that I can no longer manipulate pictures within listings with my mouse. Thus causing me to use my finger to navigate the pictures now vs using my mouse. Terrible. Update in response to a developer response. I am using a Apple Magic Trackpad 2. I use it to navigate around the iPad. I found after the most recent update that support for scrolling through pictures for vehicles posted on the app are spotty at best. Most of the time it will not allow me to swipe, I have tried to click down on the trackpad and hold. That as well does not work. I wish there was a clear cut solution to this problem as while it’s not a huge deal to use my finger to navigate the pictures of the vehicle listings. I would prefer to use my mouse as my setup lends to the ergonomics gained from using a mouse with the IOS operating system.
  • It’s okay

    By MyReviewsAreHere
    I mean I am holding it up to the standards of CarMax and EBay itself...and it’s not there. It loads a conglomeration of vehicles which may be fun to browse but if seriously shopping for a car you likely want to search before just seeing a bunch of listings. Second, and this is a big one, no way to save individual photos..the only way is to take a screenshot. When I view More Details to go to the HTML view on a listing and press and click Add To Photos the app just crashed. Another big con... no trim filtering! Say if I want to only look at AMG or M models, I have to wade through a ton of irrelevant listings. It doesn’t come across as a nice experience as CarsAndBids or BringATrailer, which allow for conversation between seller and buyers in a transparent manner. Pluses: - loads quickly - Listing Detail view is well laid out P.S if you are looking for a developer you should hire me! ;) Update: Developer response seems defensive and only addresses certain things so adjusting rating to 1 Star. But to answer: Browse is what I was looking for so my mistake there. But, no trim filtering is still a big con as mentioned. As well as not being able to save individual photos. The Community tab does not really make much sense. It should just be on the listing itself, like the sites I mentioned. Chat sounds beneficial, though I would think of that as a needed feature if buying something as expensive as a vehicle.
  • what a joke

    By danarchys
    This app has the potential to be a great tool for finding quality new and used vehicles but the developer has apparently decided to put next to zero effort in. This is extremely frustrating as the app looks and functions beautifully. Ebay needs to take their customers seriously and offer regulation, maintenance and customer service. Maybe then the outrageous price to submit a single post can be justified. Multiple posts of the same vehicles from different accounts. Unable to save searches for easy updates and new posts. No subscription service available for serious dealers or private traders? Zero customer support. Next to zero quality content due to inflated pricing. This is why facebook will make you obsolete.
  • It’s almost all good!!

    By kingdom time
    I’ve purchased many vehicles over the years off eBay motors and all except one was fair. However, the fraudulent listing was not covered well by eBay and it cost me 10k (on a 30k auto) to learn the fine print of buyer protection guaranteed on what the car is supposed to be valued at vs what the car IS valued at...is based on the fraudulent price rather than what I paid and thought I was purchasing. My vehicle even came with a bogus car fax check that was found to be inaccurate. Oh well, I’ve made many good purchases too so it comes out in the end. I still wish they would cover fraudulent lemons better somehow. Thanks
  • Surprise disappointment

    By jpmcauley
    Would expect eBay to be the leader in terms of GUI, seller experience, ease of use, etc. Being that they are the market leader. This app is horrible. Will not allow sending pictures in response to questions about vehicle. Will not allow adding pictures. Horrible and clumsy at best. This app was clearly thrown together to have something to offer. Would rather not have an app than use this frustration box. Can it and start over Even worse every response from the developer is an attempt to excuse or explain issues away as user error. That’s how giant corps get their lunches eaten by innovative companies who listen to their customers.
  • Awful

    By paxilemonade
    I’m running the latest iOS on iPhone XS Max. The app doesn’t let me add a new listing, once I manage to get something listed trying to revise it is an infinite loop of hitting revise in the app then having an eBay web browser open within the app that says I must use the app for any revisions. Half the time any current items being sold don’t even appear in the app, and messages just don’t exist, meanwhile I get them via the old regular eBay app. I only have one account, so that’s not the issue. Listings cost $100 each and I have zero control over them after the initial post, I’ve spent and lost way too much money because of this nonsense.
  • Stop the insanity

    By klejdzej
    In general, the app is wonderful for searching and viewing ads. However, I believe the main purpose of the app is the ability to bid on vehicles. If so, then why in the world am I required to log in EVERY time I open the app! Every single time I open the app for a new session and try to save a favorite or bid on a vehicle, I have to sign into eBay AGAIN...even though I already signed in three times in the same day. And, to make it worse, nearly 50 percent of the time, “something went wrong” with the sign in. Connecting the app with our eBay account should be a ONE and DONE. Please fix this terrible user experience.
  • Listing issues - NO Control

    By Tserge42
    Was promoted to download the app following my attempt to list my car. Loved the interface and “quick” listing ability - loading videos etc but I have re-done my listing 3 times and it still doesn’t show up in the app. Doesn’t make sense. Like others reviewing, once completed and re-entering info my listing is still not visible. I only have 1 EBay account and am running the latest version of IOS - IPhone X MAX. Again, love the ease of use and listing features but it doesn’t seem to be operating correctly and I am not looking forward to being billed multiple times at $95ea...!
  • Thank you Donut Media

    By ToyotaTyler
    So forever I just went through my phones browser for eBay motors. Now I can see all the awesome cars and parts I can’t afford very efficiently and effectively. And that’s important. The app actually works better than I thought it would. Very fluid. Thanks again donut media for the reminder to get the app. I like it.
