Blogger News: World’s First Virtual Reality Department Store 22.6.16

Shop with your eyes on this virtual eBay.


What if shopping as you know it was to change and give you more options than ever before?

What if you could really get inside a department store without leaving the house?

What if you didn't need walls, floors or escalators to have an amazing shopping experience?

You see, we're always thinking about how we can do things differently.


We are excited to be giving Australians a glimpse in the future of shopping so don't forget to order your very own Shopticals (VR viewing device).


Set me up in four easy steps - make sure to remove the peel off the protective lens stickers first - and take a glimpse into the future of shopping.

  • STEP 1
    Download the eBay Virtual Reality Department Store app and open on your phone.
  • STEP 2
    Remove the sleeve. Open up the box, lift the two square flaps and fold towards you.
  • STEP 3
    Stick down the side panels using the velcro pads and move the elastic band halfway up the main flap to grip your phone.
  • STEP 4
    Insert your phone into the front flap, either turn your volume up or pop your headphones in and close firmly.

Supported Devices

Tips and Tricks

We recommend removing your phone case before you place your phone into the shopticals. Also, make sure your phone is sitting up-right in the shopticals for a clear picture.
