eBay | Opportunity for All

Enabling everyone to participate in—and benefit from—global commerce.

We believe that everyone should be able to participate in the global economy. Our open platform and tools enable anyone with a bank account and an Internet connection to access the global market and buy and sell online.

Technology enables sellers of every size, location and circumstance to tap into eBay’s expanding customer base of more than 160 million buyers and grow sales across the globe. That means more jobs and greater economic stability, which improves lives and strengthens communities.

For buyers coming from more than 190 markets, eBay provides access to over a billion items they might otherwise not be able to find or afford—including goods to inspire, start or grow their own eBay business.
