They’re powered by online retail giant eBay, already a leader in redefining retail. The new screens measure about 9 feet across and 2 feet high and will appear on the front windows of closed stores. Shoppers will be able to touch the screens to order and have Kate Space Saturday products delivered to them within an hour via courier. Payment will be accepted by the couriers through PayPal Here, a mobile payment service developed by eBay. How cool is that?

This is the latest effort by eBay to work more closely with large retailers that are looking to reach more online and mobile shoppers. The company has attracted some large retailers, such as Target Corp, to its online marketplace, while developing mobile shopping technology for other retailers such as Macy’s Inc.
