Be prepared to buy endless “useful” things from friends and family as eBay (EBAY) and Snapchat (SNAP) have teamed up to make it easier for sellers to share their listings on the social media app.
Following an interface between the app and the e-commerce site, Snapchatters may now post eBay listings via the Snapchat camera on Android and iOS. The new feature allows the recipient or viewer of a Snap with an eBay sticker, to press the eBay sticker to return to the listing in the eBay app.
eBay and Snapchat worked on the new feature, which will be rolled out across the eBay app in the coming months. But don’t think the cash will be rolling in if you’re a seller, this feature is restricted to your connections…so start networking!
Snapchat's Snap Camera also shows Amazon (AMZN) product listings, which could be merged with its eBay listing in the future, giving consumers more chances to discover unusual items in-app.
