Augmented Reality has been making its way into many markets, from automotive and entertainment to furniture, and now eBay is taking a stab at using the technology to make shipping more effective: The e-commerce corporation is using AR to help its users determine what box size best fits their shipping needs.

The AR feature is available through eBay’s Android app, and follows a simple premise. Users wishing to ship their goods just have to scan them all together and the app will superimpose a series of boxes on the smartphone screen so you can figure out which size fits. This way, the company is getting rid of one of the most cumbersome aspects of selling goods. Moreover, eBay’s move showcases how even the shipping industry can incorporate AR to enhance its services.
