EBay launches AR tool to make shipping a breeze

  • The search for similar furniture works well

Shipping costs need to be calculated and then you have to determine which box the item will fit inside. eBay realized this is one of the pain points for sellers, so made a decision to fix it using augmented reality. Its Android counterpart uses ARCore, Google's answer to Apple's augmented reality tool.

Similar to what we've seen on apps from Amazon and Wayfair, IKEA Place allows you to use your camera's viewfinder to place virtual pieces of furniture in your home so you can see what it'll look like in real life.

In addition to the 3D modeling, IKEA Place has a visual search feature that lets you take a picture of any furniture and the app will find let you know which IKEA product it is or if there is something similar that IKEA sells.

The AR feature is pretty simple: point your phone at whatever it is you're trying to ship, and it'll superimpose an augmented reality box over it so you can figure out if it'll fit.

"By coupling Google's ARCore platform with premiere AR technology built at eBay, we are continuing to make the selling experience more seamless", said James Meeks, head of mobile at eBay. "It demonstrates our continual innovation on behalf of our sellers to help them save time and remove barriers". Simply open the latest version of the eBay app, tap Selling, and then scroll down to the AR feature where you can then pick a shipping box to try.
