It's been several months since the official eBay app for Windows 8 has received any sort of update but today the company launched a major upgrade to the app on the Windows Store. The most significant new feature is that users can now set up listings to sell items from within the app for the first time.
The change notes on the Windows Store site state that users of the app can now "create, edit, and finish listings within the eBay Windows 8 app with plenty of helpful features to guide new Sellers along the way." This feature is currently limited to the US, Canada, the UK and Australia.
In addition, it's now possible to create an eBay account from within the app. If you are just using the app to bid and purchase items, the new version also has an improved checkout feature, with the change notes stating, "Search, bid, and purchase an item – all without leaving the app."
Finally, there are improvements in online support and the change notes state that eBay wants to hear from its users in terms of what they like and what they want to have included in future versions, along with any feedback on issues they might encounter while using the app.
