Whether you’re a collector, a bargain hunter, or looking to get rid of some extra stuff, you’re always out for the best deal. eBay has over 100 million active users buying and selling pretty much everything, from cars, motorcycles, and clothing, to sporting goods and toys. Buyers can bid for an item, or purchase a “Buy Now” listing at a fixed price, and sellers are rated across a number of criteria for quality assurance. All you have to do is set up an account as a buyer or seller or both, and you're ready to start bidding.
eBay was founded in 1995 by Pierre Omidyar under the original name AuctionWeb as nothing more than a hobbyist’s online marketplace. When Omidyar was forced to upgrade his internet hosting account and pay an increased fee, he expanded the AuctionWeb business model to open it up to the sale of travel products, and changed the name to eBay. As the site received subscribers by the millions, eBay turned into a market space to include hundreds of other categories, over 4 million products up for auction, and service more than 100 million users around the globe.
eBay Inc., the parent corporation that operates eBay.com, is improving the community and the world as much as it is the individual lives of its users. Everyday eBay Inc. is reducing waste by recycling and engaging their Green Team to reuse resources inside and outside the company. The eBay Foundation, since its start, has been investing in communities around eBay’s operations through their GIVE Team, as well as launched The Opportunity Project which supports market-based initiatives seeking to develop vulnerable and impoverished communities around the world.
