Overview of Ebay
We’re Creating a Better Form of Commerce
Ebay connect millions of buyers and sellers around the world, empowering people and creating economic opportunity for all.
What we do
eBay is where the world goes to shop, sell, and give.
Whether you are buying new or used, plain or luxurious, commonplace or rare, trendy or one-of-a-kind – if it exists in the world, it probably is for sale on eBay. Our mission is to be the world’s favorite destination for discovering great value and unique selection.
We give sellers the platform, solutions, and support they need to grow their businesses and thrive. We measure our success by our customers’ success.
What sets us apart
Our vision for commerce is one that is enabled by people, powered by technology, and open to everyone.
We empower people and create economic opportunity.
We focus on partnering with our sellers, not competing with them. We are building stronger connections between buyers and sellers with product experiences that are fast, mobile, and secure. And we are transforming the individual selling experience to help you turn the things you no longer need into cash you can use.
How we work
At eBay, our purpose links us to something bigger than ourselves.
We employ extraordinary people who do meaningful work that has a tangible impact on the lives of individuals all over the world. And we aspire to make extraordinary things possible for each other, for our customers, and for you. We’ve been doing this for over 20 years. And we’re just as passionate about it today as when we founded the company in 1995.
