The most popular place to buy and sell trading cards online is eBay. The way most people share their collection is that it can be time-consuming to list each individual card, but eBay plans to speed up this process. In the recent Announcement, as reported by Gizmodo This morning, eBay said it is updating its Android and iOS applications with image recognition capabilities.
If you get started with Magic: Gathering late this month, you’ll be able to point your phone at a map, and the app will automatically create a list of the most for you. In May, will work to feature Pokemon and u-ji-oh! Cards and then other games and trading cards later in the year.
The company says you can offer a card in about half the time it takes to offer a card for sale manually on the website. You start by creating an offer and use the search bar to type in the name of the game the card is from. At that point, the app asks you to “tap to search with your camera.” When you point your phone’s camera at the card, a list of possible matches appears. The handy thing about this is that the app automatically adds details to the list such as the name of the card, the set it comes from, the type, rarity, and more. It’s then up to you to add photos, describe the condition, and ultimately set a price.
If you’re not into buying and selling cards on eBay, a feature that can save people some time listing their collections may not seem like much. But that is until you realize how many cards are offered on eBay every day. In the past year, more than 41 million new listings have been posted on eBay, with about 119 posted every minute. When you add that up, that’s a lot of time that people can spend playing their favorite game instead of laboriously entering data.
