eBay's announced a joint trial with Argos, that sees big sellers able to flog their stuff through the auction site and allow buyers to pick it up from a participating branch of the high street chain.
It won't be for everyone, though. The trial allows a select group of 50 eBay merchants to offer the physical pick-ups, that'll be offered in around 150 Argos shops. If you live in a city and want to buy cameras and computers and printers, it's probably for you. If you live in the country and tend to buy 99p baby clothes, forget about it. [Argos]
