eBay has announced that this year they will be bringing augmented reality to their website, the company is currently in development of an AR tool kit.
According to a Fortune Report, eBay will be working towards bringing AR to the consumer market as an assistant when buying items. An example of this would be if a buyer wanted to see how an item would look or fit such as a new set of tires on a car, they would be able to project that image in the desired space before purchasing.
Another addition that eBay are working on is the same principal as the tires but instead from the sellers point of view. Sellers will be able to view what packaging and box size they need to ship their specific item, this will be done by AR appearing over the item of sale until the correct size of packaging is chosen.
