Can you sell on Ebay without the app on your phone?

Asked by Aster (17157points) 3 weeks ago

“He” says “you don’t need an Ebay app on your phone! You can get one on the Sell page!” I don’t believe it. Do I need an Ebay app on his phone first before I tackle this job? I’ve never once gotten an app anywhere.

You can buy or sell on eBay from the computer you are on. No need for a phone.

No need for a phone? How do I take a picture of the object?

zenvelo's avatar

Do you have a digital camera with which you can upload a picture to your computer? That’s how people did it before smart phones.

Aster's avatar

Yes but I got it in early December and don’t know how to use it yet. Can I upload a picture from my iPhone ? Or do people simply not do such a thing?

Yes, you can upload a picture from your iPhone. I do it all the time.

You can either email the picture to yourself from the phone and then open you r email on the computer and save the picture to your computer, or, you can connect the phone to your computer via the charging cord and a USB port, and import the picture to your computer form the phone.

” and import the picture to your computer form the phone.” Import the picture to where exactly ? I KNOW I sound stupid. I know it !!

Connect the phone to your computer. Open the photo storage program on your computer. When that is open, click on the “FILE” menu. There should be an option to “import” from the file.

When it asks where to import from, there will be an option to select either your phone, or teh USB port. Select that,

Your computer will then display a bunch of thumbnail versions of the pictures on your phone.. Select the one you want, and follow the prompts to import it.

I can’t thank you enough. Sounds like quite a process I’ll worry about next year. lol

Or, you can go to the App Store on your phone, search for “eBay” and add the app to your phone. Probably a lot easier and less complicated.

The App Store icon on an iPhone is a blue icon with a white circle, and an “A” on it; the “A” is made of what looks like a crossed pencil and paintbrush.

Wow; that description is extremely helpful !! Oh, darn. It said, “cannot connect to the App store.”

zenvelo's avatar

@Aster Try connecting to the App Store when you’re connected to wi-fi.

Just go to ebay.com and sell your stuff. The computer is for doing things like this. Your phone is for, well, phoning. You scan or download your pictures to put them on your listing. Good luck. I would try to help more but your avatar is so unfriendly I get the idea I don’t like you. Good luck and I hope you change your avatar.

@MillyMcGuire oh, LOL ! I thought the avatar was funny! It’s just from Psycho.
I know how to scan pictures if I place a photograph on top of my printer. But you can’t put a pair of shoes in there!

MollyMcGuire's avatar

No, you have to take a picture of the shoes and then scan the picture. Most cameras and phones allow one to transfer a picture to their hard drive. I’m not techy enough to do that myself.

And, @Aster. that avatar is so much better. :)
