eBay mobile website

When using a mobile device with a screen smaller than a desktop PC or laptop, mobile browsers such as Safari on iPhone or iPad report screen size when opening any website, so the website developers have the option to redirect to a mobile version of the site.

Search in Google UK for eBay and results will show https://www.ebay.co.uk/ on a desktop and https://m.ebay.co.uk/ on a smaller device such as a phone. If you type the domain directly into the browser address bar on a phone, eBay will automatically redirect you to m.ebay.co.uk.

The eBay mobile version of the website does include a "Classic Site" link at the bottom of each page, switch to classic view to be redirected to the full version of the page you are on.
