Dark mode has become an important feature on all devices and apps. For eBay, you can find a built-in setting on the app to turn on/off the dark mode. It also supports using the device theme settings. Unfortunately, the eBay web version on the desktop doesn’t support dark mode. Hence, you need to rely on third-party extensions.
