This project has been discontinued due to JavaME’s inherent certification problems. For anyone interested, you can try out the Mafe alpha version but please bear in mind that there is no support, and due to the certificate issue, might only work on an emulator rather than an actual device.


Don’t miss out on that eBay item you’ve been watching! Bid or buy from anywhere, anytime with your mobile cell phone!

Mafe (Mobile access for eBay, pronounced: ma-fe) is a mobile cell phone application that allows you to access your eBay account while on the move. It is designed to run on Java ME (J2ME) enabled devices.


The idea behind Mafe is that you use the full power of the eBay website to search for items, view their descriptions and photos, then add them to your watch list. Whenever you are away from your computer, you can use Mafe on your mobile phone to view, bid or buy those items, anytime from anywhere. If you are a seller, Mafe enables you to keep up-to-date with the latest prices and bidding information on your items no matter where you are.


  • Quick & easy to use.
  • Bid, buy and view your items from anywhere.
  • Safe & secure – no password required, you grant permission via the eBay site.
  • International support for different eBay sites, languages and time zones.
  • Uses minimal data transfer, saving you on mobile internet costs.
