Good ideas change the world

Created in 1995 by Pierre Omidyar, eBay began as an online marketplace called “AuctionWeb,” where people could buy and sell items through online auctions.

Since then, eBay has experienced exponential growth and has become one of the most successful e-commerce platforms, transforming the way we buy and sell around the world.

In 2008, eBay launched its mobile App to provide a more seamless and functional experience for mobile device users.

Shop from miles away without ever leaving your home

The eBay App provides a one-stop shopping experience directly from your cell phone.

When you open the App, you can browse categories such as electronics, fashion, home and garden, collectibles, among others, or use the search bar to find specific products.

You can bid on auctions in real time, buy new or used products with the “Buy Now” option, and track the status of transactions and shipments.

These are some of the wonderful features of eBay:
