UK eBay Fashion Microsite
Thanks to Mike Sachoff for his article pointing out the new eBay Fashion Microsite, as I wouldn’t have found it on eBay UK, as we are always the last to get anything new and the eBay fashion microsite appears to be no different as there is no sign of a link to it on the eBay UK home page. However…… If you follow this URL - http://fashion.ebay.co.uk/ - you will find the UK EBay Fashion Microsite! Quite why they are not yet linking to the UK version of eBay Fashion, I’m not quite sure, but it’s there for all to see!
Although high fashions isn’t at the top of my priority list, I do buy more than my fair share of shoes and boots on the net, as I have size 12 feet and trying to buy footwear in that size on the high street is fine if you want brown leather sandles or welly boots! I will therefor use the eBay UK fashion microsite fairly often, as it’s a rather nice bit of kit!
Anyway, onto Mike’s article, which I have printed most of below. (The original version, can be found here)
Ebay Fashion Microsite
eBay said today it is launching a new microsite eBay Fashion that will sell clothing, shoes and accessories.
eBay Fashion offers a more visual shopping experience that highlights the selection of new, vintage, branded and designer merchandise available on eBay.
Users can click on a “Fashion Tab” in the top navigation on the eBay homepage. Users can shop by brand, category, similar items or trends. eBay has added new image search technology that allows users to choose an item and a “More Like This” feature displays other items that are similar in color, shape, and pattern.
“eBay Fashiondelivers a visually rich and easy-to-navigate shopping experience for savvy style seekers and bargain hunters alike, making it simple to browse and buy from the world’s largest online selection of new, used and vintage clothing, shoes and accessories,” said Lorrie Norrington, president of eBay Marketplaces.
The new UK eBay Fashion homepage takes a while to load, as it’s really visual, but with a fairly good Internet connection, I think you’ll enjoy playing with it. What do you think?
