Commerce company eBay announced today that it will soon retire several of its mobile apps including ones on iPhone and iPad. eBay’s primary iOS app will not be going anyway, however, and several of the discontinued apps will eventually see their features appear in the main eBay app.
In an effort to simply the shopping experience, eBay says it will be shutting down its Valet, Fashion, and Motors apps soon and later integrate their features into eBay’s primary app.
9to5Mac Happy Hour
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 also said it will be ending its delivery service called eBay Now after retiring the app dedicated to that service last year. eBay previously piloted its delivery service in Brooklyn, but now the commerce company says it will work to provide a larger scale solution around delivery while scheduled delivery will continue to be tested in the UK.
As eBay sunsets its Valet, Fashion, and Motors apps, iOS users should install the latest version of the main eBay for iPhone and iPad app on the App Store as it will pick up features from these other apps in the future.
