Outsmart bidders with this eBay trick

Can you believe eBay has been around for over two decades? It’s true. It was founded in 1995 and is as popular as ever, with an estimated 168 million active buyers.I’m sure you know eBay as a great online marketplace where users can buy and sell items from each other. But do you know any tricks on how to get the best deals? This download will help you outsmart bidders with a super easy trick.I’m talking about the mobile app from I say “Fat Fingers,” what’s the first thing you think of? Well, this app wants you to think about value.eBay’s mobile app allows sellers to simply take a quick cellphone picture of something they want to sell, type a description into a box and post. The “fat finger” phenomenon is referencing the fact that it’s tough to type words into a touchscreen. People can often mistype their item description, making it harder to search for the item.What this also means is that the people who put the smallest amount of effort into making their sale might actually be hidden from your search. That’s where Fat Fingers comes in. All you have to do is type a popular product or brand into the search bar and the site automatically searches popular misspellings for that item.If, for example, someone was to spell Nike as Noke (the “I” key is pretty close to the “O” key, after all) their product would be listed in the wrong place. You wouldn’t be able to find it if you were searching for Nike products.With Fat Fingers, you can account for mistakes like Noke when trying to get the best deal possible.If you want to try it out, download the app today. It’s free and available for both Apple and Android gadgets.
