Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass ...
Its about learning to dance in the rain!!!
There are many things in life that will catch your eye
but only a few will catch your heart... Pursue those

This is my small effort to make you smile for a while...

Just Click...



A glance at the digital calendar on the wall which flashed 12-Sept-2030, I was reminded of tasks to be done and it as always had most hated task of us “Shopping”.
At my age of 60 and my smart darling hubs who is just couple of years elder to me, Shopping always meant proper financial planning, energy backup to run store to store and to stand in discount or half price sale queues and with all these biggest problem is to remember the things that needs to be shopped. No matter how much we make a list, I ended up forgetting important things to shop missing out on better offers and price.
That’s when I just remembered a little incident which took me back to 2013
On our wedding day I wanted to gift a mobile phone for my tech savvy hubs, after being completely confused by friends and dealers, I decided to surf on net! As I opened Chrome there was a pop up to install a new app on browser which would help in shopping. Bingo!!! That is exactly what I wanted, I instantly installed eBay Check, observed an icon in my browser and then continued typing for the Mobile phone which I wanted. “eBay Check” instantly had searched the best prices, different choice, better discount everything just then and there as I sat to surf. I was very clear which one to buy and where to buy for my hubs. I can still remember the glow on my husband’s face when he saw a beautifully wrapped gift from Ebay.
Dingdong…Door bell rang distracting me from my good old memories, as I opened the door there stood 2 guys dressed in uniform which had the label of Ebay. I was about to send them off as I thought it would be some surveys or feedback but the surprise was revealed after getting introduced to a young sales executive and a technician at Ebay.

They were here to introduce a new product from eBay which helped in placing orders, getting better discounts and also promised the best shopping experience at our doorstep they called it “eBay Click”.
They explained the simple steps for happy shopping as they installed a small Button like device on most of the things which I mentioned as frequent shopping items. They made sure most of the items in home were covered and this button was installed.

Step 1: Now they explained that when I click a button on any of the product in my home the same is then registered in the “eBay Click” tablet. Then it does a complete search for better prices, options of that particular product, comparison with different vendors and the list will be ready for your review any time. Good thing is you can carry this tablet with you even when you are out on shopping and perform many searches, market comparison of the exact product that you want, while you shop at stores as well. 
 

Step 2: Click review, you can see very interactive user interface for best price, complete list of options, and comparison of the products you have clicked to shop. Select the products in the cart. 

Step 3. Choose the payment mode and decide on the delivery mode.
And there you go the things of all range like home décor, living, gadgets and more in this list http://hub.shop.ebay.in/ is delivered to home, with no hassles of shopping and the perk is that the best price is assured.  Once the eBay folks left, I was again very happy that I had something to surprise my hubs yet again. 

P:S This post is my entry for eBay contest in Indiblogger.
