Some time ago I read that eBay was working on something it called "Setify", which would be a way for users to assemble sets of items on the site. This week I receive the following email from eBay (perhaps many of you have, too). They announced "Collections", which sounds a lot like what was earlier described as "Setify". Here's the text of the letter.
Today, I'm excited to share that we've evolved the eBay shopping experience with more new features designed to further personalize your time on eBay, truly making it yours. We're introducing the following:
Collections—groups of products that have been handpicked from eBay's more than 500 million listed items by expert curators, eBay members, and sellers
Curators—top trendsetters across a variety of interest areas, who create beautiful collections on eBay to help easily connect you with items you'll love
Follow—a simple, one-click way for you to personalize your feed by following the collections, curators, eBay members, and interests that inspire you
Profiles—a customizable page for you to share information about yourself, the collections you've created, and the interests, collections, and people you follow
eBay Today—a new page that helps you easily discover the very best collections of items on eBay, selected daily by our Chief Curator
These features have been specifically designed to enhance and inspire your shopping experience, helping you explore and discover products that you're passionate about every day. The more people or collections of products you choose to follow, the more personal and dynamic your feed becomes, creating an ever-changing selection of products that match your interests.
I'd like to personally invite you to explore these new features, to follow the incredible collections from our curators and eBay members, to tap into your passions and create collections of items for others to explore, and to connect with all of the things you need and love.
