Product Overview


eBay® for BlackBerry® smartphones is designed to allow BlackBerry® smartphone users to keep track of items and auction activities on the eBay web site. With this application, BlackBerry smartphone users may search for, watch, bid on, or buy items directly from their BlackBerry smartphone. BlackBerry smartphone users also have the option to receive notifications on their BlackBerry smartphone when they are outbid, when an auction that contains a watched item is ending soon, and when they win or lose an item they have bid on.






BlackBerry smartphone users can receive an eBay notification in the messages application on their BlackBerry device when:

  • Outbid on an item

BlackBerry smartphone users can also:

  • View sellers marked as favorites on the eBay web site
  • View searches saved on the eBay web site
  • Purchase an item immediately using the Buy It Now feature
  • Add an item to the watched items list
  • Purchase an item using a PayPal® account
  • Add an auction end date to the calendar application

Note: eBay for BlackBerry smartphones is supported on BlackBerry smartphones running BlackBerry® Device Software 4.5 and later and requires 175 KB of available application memory. BlackBerry smartphone users must have a wireless service data plan that supports web browsing to use eBay for BlackBerry smartphones. BlackBerry smartphone users must have an eBay account and a PayPal account to purchase items using the application.
