eBay Inc. News

eBay was born in the dotcom bubble of the late 1990s, but it has risen to become a major internet success story. To stay up-to-date with the latest from this significant online brand, sign up for the Wiser daily eBay Inc. news email. The company was founded in 1995 by computer programmer Pierre Omidyar. It is a marketplace that brings buyers and sellers together. Just about anyone can sell almost any product, with eBay Inc. making its money through listing fees and a small percentage of the sale. It operates around the world, plus it has expanded with services like Gumtree and online ticket sales. The most significant other branch of its business, however, is the online payment processor PayPal. It has continued to grow while eBay has at times struggled in the face of a lackluster economy, increasing competition, and changing consumer demands. eBay Inc. plans to split PayPal from the rest of the business in 2015. You can stay up-to-date with this and other developments with the free eBay Inc. news email from Wiser. Each day we pull together the best eBay-related content from around the web and send that to you in an easy-to-read email.
