eBay goes mobile with Bango

Bango and Bonfire Media have teamed up to deliver the award-winning Pocket Auctions for eBay app to millions of mobile phone users in Europe.

eBay subscribers in Europe can now bid and buy, search active and completed items and check their My eBay accounts at anytime and from anyplace, direct from their mobile phones.

“eBay is already a massive global phenomenon and Pocket Auctions for eBay is now helping to change the way users can interact with eBay to fit in with their busy lives, when they can not always be near a PC,” said Ray Anderson, CEO at Bango.

The application provides access to My eBay from a mobile phone, synchronised with their PC account. Users also gain access to search and mobile price checking, which enables roving bargain hunters to check out prices on the move.

The Bango technology provides WAP billing so users can download the application direct to their phones and pay using operator billing, Premium SMS, credit/debit card or PayPal.

Pocket Auctions for eBay, developed by Bonfire Media, is available to European mobile users by directing their phone browsers to bango.bonfiremedia.com.
