At eBay, we recognize that many of our sellers are independent business owners – often operating global ecommerce businesses with tiny teams and limited resources. In addition to supporting their growth on eBay, we’ve launched a few programs that support and celebrate them.
Open for Business Podcast
Every small business owner must navigate hundreds of tough choices and questions when building and running a business. eBay's Open for Business podcast brings listeners stories of real eBay sellers, entrepreneurs and notable business leaders for candid conversations about the trials and tribulations of building a business from the ground up.
Celebrating Our Sellers
Our diverse community of entrepreneurs and small businesses breathe life into our marketplace and are responsible for the incredible selection on our site. We're constantly inspired by their tenacity, drive and passion and have unique programs in the U.S. and Canada that celebrate the sellers that embody our core values.
Helping Businesses Get Online
Many smaller retailers across the globe are not yet leveraging online channels as an avenue to grow their business. In recent years eBay has successfully piloted programs in Germany and Italy aimed at helping traditional retailers sell their goods on the eBay marketplace and discover the power of ecommerce.
We believe in the power of our voice and our global brand to affect industry-wide policy change. We engage beyond the walls of our business, actively monitoring a variety of legislative and regulatory issues and championing the causes that matter to our global seller community.
Global Policy Issues
Legislators around the world have powerful tools at their disposal to shape the ecommerce landscape. eBay's Global Government Relations team advocates for legislation and regulation that supports a healthy ecommerce ecosystem and strengthens and enables our community of users around the globe.
Helping Sellers Make their Voices Heard
Government officials listen best when they hear from their constituents. eBay’s digital grassroots campaigns give sellers a quick and easy way to make their voices heard on important policy issues through email, social media and online petitions.
Helping Our Community Get Involved
eBay's Small Business Ambassador network is a global advocacy group that allows sellers to get personally involved in shaping public policy that protects and promotes sellers utilizing eBay's platform.
