eBay was the first online marketplace. Today, it’s a household name. A regular feature in lists of best loved brands, it connects millions of buyers and sellers, helping customers to find the item they’re looking for from its 1.6 billion listings. With 185 million buyers in 190 markets, trade is fast.
Over the last year, eBay UK created several programmes of support for business sellers, to create a revenue channel for stores without an online presence and to ease the cash flow burden for existing sellers during the Covid-19 pandemic.
eBay is purely a marketplace. We don’t stock or own merchandise, but instead we partner with you to give you the global platform to grow your business, whether you are an SMB, a brand, a retailer, a wholesaler or a distributor. By partnering with sellers in this way, ebay.co.uk has helped hundreds of thousands of UK entrepreneurs over its 25-year history.
