EBay targets mobile users, hoping to seem hip –

"These days, most of the things people purchase on the site aren't sold through auctions; they have fixed prices. And, the majority of items for sale are new — not musty antiques or old collectibles.
Richelle Parham, eBay's chief marketing officer, says plenty of people see eBay as an auction-focused marketplace, despite the reality.
"We need to change that perception," she says.

The company wants to be seen as an e-commerce innovator, rather than a staid auction site. To promote that image, eBay is embarking on a major ad campaign aimed at consumers who shop on smartphones. At the same time, eBay hopes it will change consumers' misperceptions about the company."
