What is the mobile web?
The mobile web is a commonly used term for accessing the internet via your mobile phone. It may also be referred to as WAP. Sites that you access via the mobile phone are often optimized for mobile, meaning that they don't offer the same functionality in the same way as their desktop counterparts.
So the eBay Mobile web site isn't the same as it is online?
No. eBay has been optimized to offer a better browsing and buying experience and offers a streamlined version of the 'conventional' eBay experience. You can bid, buy it now, search and pay with your mobile phone.
Does it cost to access eBay Mobile?
Using the eBay mobile website is free, but your network operator may charge you for the data you use to access the mobile web. Please contact your mobile operator (or click on their logo on the Mobile hub front page) for more information. Typically viewing 10 eBay mobile pages will require 0.25MB worth of data.
Is the eBay Mobile site as up to date as the website?
Yes. Without getting too technical both the web and the mobile site use the same infrastructure and mirror each other, so there is no delay.
