Official eBay app supports custom ringtones and "Quiet times"

The official eBay app for Android got an update yesterday that lets users personalize eBay notifications with custom ringtones. Also included is the ability to set "quiet times", a feature that will silence the notifications during work time or at night and help you focus on what is important during those times.

What's in this version:
✓ Personalize your eBay notifications with custom ringtones!
✓ Silence notification sounds while sleeping or at work with the 'Quiet times' setting.
✓ The new streamlined checkout flow makes paying for your items faster and easier than ever.
✓ Bug fixes and performance enhancements.
Note: Notifications are now being delivered via Google Cloud Messaging. This requires you to give a new permission before it can be installed.

Download: Google Play Store


  1. I received this update yesterday evening, turned on quiet time setting, and still got a notification at 6 in the morning. Be warned, this feature may not work for you. I am trying times for east coast now to see if that helps.

  2. Thanks for the update. I haven't had time to try it yet, but will do so during the weekend.

  3. Quite times do not work! I get notifications often at night and I have my quite time set from 10pm to 6am.

  4. I have tried using the quiet times setting on the ebay app and it does not work. Have set the quiet times from 10.30pm - 9am but regularly sends me messages. Don't know why this function does not work as everything else seems to.

  5. Thanks for such a nice and updated information. I got some interesting tips from this post.
