ShopSavvy makes friends with eBay

Image representing eBay as depicted in CrunchBaseShopSavvy, currently the most downloaded app, was created by BigInJapan and allows you to scan a product's bar code to check online what and where is the cheapest price for that very product.

Well today, the app's developers announced that it will now also list eBay items. To do so, they have explained the procedure:
"About an hour ago we decided that it might be worth it to launch an Alpha (i.e. not Beta) eBay listing tool. The tool is very simple. You enter:
  • UPC of item you are selling on eBay
  • eBay auction URL
  • buy it now price
  • Address of item
  • Phone number of seller
  • Auction duration
  • And pay us $1 via PayPal

Now your item becomes relevant to bargain shoppers out in the real world, people who are actually ready to buy."

Clever idea this is to be able to browse products like that at the tip of your finger and in time of crisis like now, saving a few bucks is certainly no luxury.
