Re: Help using PlayBook to sell items on ebay

Well there is a method to do it directlly but you need to sideload an app to do it. So you need to start here first!

Re: Help using PlayBook to sell items on ebay

Thanks for all those thoughts. And ideas!  I can now see pretty well where you are coming from....i get the idea that this might turn out similar to the early days of windows where third party applications destabilised the system! 

 

I thought we got over that phase long ago...that was a very good reason to set up BB because of its secure OS!

Re: Help using PlayBook to sell items on ebay

I have yet to have a 3rd party app destabilize my Playbook. Anything is possible, though. I don't usually download a bunch of different apps at once. That way if a problem arises I can delete the app that I loaded last.

Re: Help using PlayBook to sell items on ebay

I sideloaded the ebay app, then successfully listed an item on ebay.co.uk for the first time on Playbook.  looks very well written.  The only tbing i have noticed is that they mostly say Hit Menu Button where the Playbook version needs you to swipe down and tap Settings. Never noticed any problems with any apps yet.

Re: Help using PlayBook to sell items on ebay

I've used the app for browsing and buying but not for listing/selling.

Thanks for testing it!
