eBay is continuing its augmented reality (AR) embrace with the launch of a new feature for sellers to easily find the right box to fit their products.

Available on some Android devices in the U.S. from today, eBay is tapping Google’s ARCore software development kit (SDK) to leverage motion-tracking and environmental awareness smarts to help merchants position a physical product inside a virtual box.

To access the new feature, tap the “selling” part of your eBay account, and hit “Will it Fit?” to try out the beta feature. You’ll need to place your item on a flat, horizontal surface for this to work.
