eBay’s Mobile Momentum: 100M App Downloads, 100M Items Listed

EBay is not the only e-commerce company seeing a significant shift to mobile, but it may be the only publicly held company that talks about it. Today, it has even more to say, and since the subject is big numbers, it threw in a nifty infographic.The San Jose-based company says its mobile app has been downloaded 100 million times since its launch four years ago. That’s equal to the number of the service’s active users — those who bought, listed or sold something on eBay last year. The company is not saying how many of those downloaded apps are used regularly, but by at least one measure, activity is fairly high — users have now listed 100 million items to its marketplace using the eBay app, by taking a picture of the item with their phone and uploading all the data within minutes.
