eBay is gearing-up for a very busy holiday shopping season and will offer consumers a multitude of amazing deals through January 2016.

It’s launched a "Wish Bigger" campaign where avid eBay shoppers can decide on which deals they want by crowd sourcing bargains "while skipping the chaos, but not the savings", according to BGR.

The huge online retailer has planned its holiday shopping bonanza in different phases, according to Tame Bay. The Pre-Holiday Inspiration and Discovery phase has already passed and gave consumers the chance to browse product rosters and get a general idea of what to get their friends and loved ones for Christmas. More often than not, this period involves deciding on what to buy.

The Peak Phase, which will last from November 16 through December 17, tends to see consumers getting more nitpicky about the deals they want. At this point in time, they focus on zoning in on the presents they’ve decided to buy, preferably ones that have more flexible shipping methods.

During the Last Chance Phase from December 18 to Christmas Eve, consumers want deals that instantly gratify their needs. Potential buyers are willing to pay a little extra to avail of instant delivery items which guarantee their gifts will arrive before the peak holiday season.

Lastly, the Post-Holiday Phase from Christmas Day to January 10 will see consumers start to think about the items they want to return or exchange. They’ll start to look for after-season deals. Moreover, they’ll also begin to look for means to get extra cash to pay for the high credit card bills fueled by the holidays.
