What we do

eBay is where the world goes to shop, sell, and give.

Whether you are buying new or used, plain or luxurious, commonplace or rare, trendy or one-of-a-kind – if it exists in the world, it probably is for sale on eBay. Our mission is to be the world’s favorite destination for discovering great value and unique selection.

We give sellers the platform, solutions, and support they need to grow their businesses and thrive. We measure our success by our customers' success.

We share a common drive to create uncommon opportunities – economic, professional, and personal. And because our business is about people, we have a passion for what we do. We fight for it, every day.

We employ extraordinary people who do meaningful work that has a tangible impact on the lives of individuals all over the world. And we aspire to make extraordinary things possible for each other, for our customers, and for you. We’ve been doing this for 20 years. And we're just as passionate about it today as when we founded the company in 1995.
