eBay Christmas Boutique to Bring QR-Code Shopping to London's Soho In December

By Sam Gibbs on at

eBay's bringing its 'buy-it-now' shopping experience to London for Christmas. The pop-up shop will run from the 1st to 5th of December, show casing product ideas labelled with QR codes for instant purchasing from your mobile.

The idea is that eBay will inspire your Christmas shopping with products for him and for her on show, with shop assistants on hand to guide you through those tough buying decisions. Once you've made your mind up, just scan a code with the eBay app on your smartphone and buy it for home delivery right there and then.

For those of you without smartphones, eBay's got you covered. They're partnering with HTC to offer some loaner handsets so everyone can enjoy the technology-driven shopping experience. If you're stuck for gift ideas, and are around central London, you can drop by the eBay shop at 34 Dean Street, W1D 4PR between 10am and 6pm, Thursday 1st to Monday 5th of December. Check out some goods, then go and buy them onl.... wait a minute.
