eBay Unveils Pinterest-Inspired Redesign
Following a new logo update, eBay has unveiled a site overhaul with significant new features and enhancements.
The ‘new’ eBay features a Pinterest-like grid interface that aims to be a faster, easier, simpler, more social way to shop, according to the company.
The redesigned interface allows larger photos and fits more listings within the page, without having to scroll through search results.
Shop owners can benefit from the display, as it’s more mobile-friendly and appears more presentable.
On the other hand, eBay users can more easily keep track of their ‘watched items’, ‘featured’ or ‘recently viewed’ items with a feed.
“The future of commerce is personal, driven by data. Search results and recommendations are no longer enough,” Devin Wang, eBay President, wrote in an announcement. “Consumers want insight. And they want personal, curated selection that is relevant to them, controlled by them. Consumers want experiences that are not intrusive but inspiring, experiences that don’t dictate but guide and assist, in ways that feel authentic and natural.”
The redesign will rollout internationally within the next few months.
It seems that Pinterest seems to be inspiring other sites, or giving other sites a run for their money.
