eBay Launches Local Shopping App In San Diego

eBay has launched a new, local buying and selling app called Close 5 this week in San Diego, aimed at helping users buy and sell products to other local users. eBay said the app offers up user profiles and is a safer option to traditional, anonymous classifieds. The free app runs on iPhone and Android. Close 5 is initially targeting people looking to clear clutter from their home, and is also running a launch promotion that will award a closet or garage makeover for users who submit a photo of the messiest closet or garage. The new app comes thanks to eBay's recent acquisition of Rumgr, which was developing social selling apps very similar to Close 5.
