The Benefits of Selling on eBay

eBay is a partner, not a competitor. We succeed only when our sellers succeed and are 
committed to helping your business thrive with hands-on support and powerful tools.

Massive customer base.

Plug in and get your products seen by a global marketplace of 185M active buyers in 190 countries.

Mobile-friendly.

eBay's highly-rated app has been downloaded over 514 million times, and includes powerful tools for both buying and selling.

Variety of values.

While eBay is the home of secondhand treasures, 79% of items now sold on eBay are new and unused.

World-class tools.

Ship globally with ease, customize your promotions, or maximize the effectiveness of your listings with world-class infrastructure at your fingertips.

No bidding required.

With 90% of items listed at a fixed price, eBay allows you to pick the format that works for your business.

Hands-on support.

New small businesses who join through the Up & Running program access one-on-one virtual onboarding sessions to help scale the learning curve.
