The Savvy Fashionista’s Secret Weapon – Sponsored By eBay ShopBot
I love eBay with a passion. Friends and family members know that my eBay app is probably one the top 5 apps that I use on my smartphone. And the reason is quite simple - I love the thrill of shopping for fashion steals - from mundane basics like tweezers ( found a rose gold one for $9 a week ago ) to runway-ready pieces at incredible deals. Because hey, who doesn’t like a good bargain?
So when the eBay people approached me a couple of weeks ago to ask if I would like to collaborate with them to talk about their new eBay ShopBot - it was an easy YES. I use eBay almost daily… and when my boyfriend heard my latest collaboration was with eBay, he was slightly apprehensive.
BF: So eBay …. just made an app called ShopBot .. that makes using eBay easier?
BF: You can search and bid blindfolded using their current app. I don’t know if I want it to be easier.
But it is easier. Case in point - I was looking for a white wool coat to add to my collection of coats and was browsing the website of a very fancy department store and found the coat of my dreams… and it was $6000. I did not want to spend $6000 on a coat so I took a photo of the coat while using eBay’s ShopBot.
Using eBay ShopBot, you can search either by typing exact search terms i.e “White Wool Coat” and follow the prompts given to refine the search, or take a photo of a similar item to the one you’re looking for like I did.
As soon as you see the item you want - just click “Buy”. eBay ShopBot will prompt you for your PayPal or credit card details the first time you use it. You can then opt to store this information so you won’t have to enter the information again in the future.
So back to my white coat. I found it and bought it using eBay ShopBot and a few days later:
Tadaa! Gorgeous coat for a fraction of the price (and time.)
The eBay ShopBot is still in beta, so they’re still adding and refining the app as we speak. But it is an amazing addition to eBay (and shopping as a whole.) So if you’re looking for a personal shopping assistant that could help you sort out bargains easily - I’d love for you to try it.
You can download and use eBay ShopBot by typing “eBay ShopBot” into Facebook messenger, adding it as a friend, and click “start shopping”.

That jacket really looks like a great find, Heidi! Well done, ebay!
Now that’s a really fashionable wool coat Heidi. Great find!
I believe it’s always a good decision to try out looking for items on eBay first before going to other online retail websites. I’ve used eBay Shopbot too a while ago and was able to score a fringe dress, so cute and lovely, I’m gonna wear it on my next travel!
I think eBay ShopBot is gonna be my newest best friend forever!
Gold tweezers? I’d love to have one too… I don’t often use eBay, only when there’s something I couldn’t find on other retail stores. But with this new eBay ShopBot, maybe I’ll be downloading it again on my phone and would be bargain shopping in no time!
Oh a shopbot.. Now my eBay shopping is going to be much more fun!
I feel you Heidi.. My husband often complains about my shopping addiction on ebay too.. For sure he’ll roll his eyes at me once he learns about this secret weapon haha!
Wow, this is exciting! I get my items on ebay too and have found lots of great finds!
I get all wonderful and rare pieces on eBay. It’s always my go-to thing when I need to relax. I guess everyone who shops online would agree with me, that eBay is therapeutic… Right?
Thanks for sharing about this app, Ambitionista.. I am gonna spend more time with eBay because of this, lol.
Let me just tell you that I love that jacket you scored, you’re so beautiful Heidi!
I’m gonna start adding this Shopbot on my Messenger list, even if it’s still in beta mode. I can’t wait to extend my online shopping spree!
I love ebay too, in fact, half the items and furnishings inside my house are great finds from eBay! My husband no longer complains when we get to have wonderful steals for our little home.
I must commend you with your online shopping skills! That jacket is the bomb!!
eBay’s my best friend, much to my husband’s annoyance sometimes. Lol..
I love shopping with eBay too. I could totally buy a whole wardrobe with all the wonderful items I see there at very affordable price!
Haven’t been to eBay site for the past few months using my laptop but I’m glad there’s eBay shopbot now. I downloaded the app and had helped me immensely with my online shopping whims on the go.. Yay!
This is amazing!!
