New eBay Inspiration Shop in New York | QR Code and Mobile Tech at Work...Finally
Say goodbye to long lines and crowded stores—now shoppers can literally go window shopping and actually purchase the latest, hottest items with the wave of a smartphone!
Grand Opening of eBay Inspiration Shop in the Big Apple!
eBay and designer Jonathan Adler unveiled the "eBay Inspiration Shop" New York City - a 24/7 "shoppable" storefront with interactive windows showcasing a collection of new, must-have merchandise for the fall season—from denim to digital cameras, engines to eReaders and wristwatches to new wheels.
The "always-open" store windows enable shoppers to browse and buy the very moment inspiration strikes, leveraging eBay's mobile technology to shop anytime, anywhere, anyhow. The eBay mobile app allows consumers to scan custom Quick Response (QR) codes and shop similar items from more than 200 million listings on the eBay marketplace.
Top trendsetters, including actors, designers, bloggers, stylists, editors, photographers, models and musicians, were tapped to help curate the items featured in the Adler-designed windows by sharing their shopping wish lists for fall. Contributors include: Molly Sims, Lake Bell, Betsey Johnson, Charlotte Ronson, Coco Rocha, Justin Bell, Liz Lange, Simon Doonan, among others.
A new national study on shopping reveals that nearly half of shoppers want to make an immediate purchase when they find an item they love, and also browse store windows for inspiration.
