The main features of the eBay homepage are the product search bar, the current featured collections and the list of product categories. These categories include motors, fashion, collectibles and art, sporting goods and toys and hobbies.
The category links at the top of the eBay homepage allow users to customize their searches and select more detailed sub-categories. The electronics link, for example, provides a list of top sub-categories including cell phones and accessories, cameras and photos, computers and tablets and video games and consoles. By selecting the appropriate category, the user can more accurately find his desired product. Users can also use an advanced search button to select the desired location, shipping options, conditions and buying formats of the searched-for items.
The main page largely consists of the day's featured collections. These collections consist of various products that fall under a given theme. The collections provide a price range for the items and a link to the purchasing pages. Additionally, the eBay homepage provides the user with a shopping cart in the upper right corner that collects all of the user's selected products and saves them for purchase. By logging into their accounts, users can check their purchase history and manage their auctions.
