World’s First Virtual Reality Department Store

World’s First Virtual Reality Department StoreeBay and Australia’s largest marketplace and iconic Australian retailer, Myer, join forces to launch the world’s first Virtual Reality (VR) Department Store.

Through the VR experience, Australian customers can browse more than 12,500 Myer products which can be selected and added to the customer cart using eBay Sight Search.

The Virtual Reality Department Store connects to the existing eBay.com.au API (Application Programming Interface) and allows Myer’s product range, pricing and stock information, to be updated in real time-- a first for virtual reality experiences globally.

eBay and Myer give customers the opportunity to receive their own shopticals (specially designed virtual reality viewers) to start their VR shopping experience. At least 15,000 "shopticals" will be available free of charge.

Australians can simply download the eBay VR Department Store app on their smart phone, and insert their phone into the shopticals with the app open to start their virtual shopping experience.

Sydney residents and visitors will also be able to experience the VR Department Store by booking their place at a special exhibition in Sydney.
