The eBay business: disrupting shopping for more than 20 years

eBay is one of the world’s largest online marketplaces, connecting millions of buyers and sellers every day. Our ambition is to be the place the world shops first, because we offer the best choice, most relevant shopping experiences and the most powerful selling platform. If it is happening anywhere in the world, it is happening on eBay .

eBay has been around since 1995 and has evolved tremendously over the past two decades. When we launched, we transformed commerce by introducing consumer selling, across the world. Fast forward to the present day and much has changed. These days, 81% of items sold on the eBay platform are new (not second-hand) and two thirds of them (67%) ship for free
