    How did eBay startup?!

    eBay has become known worldwide, after being founded in 1995 by Pierre Omidyar.


    The online site makes it easy for people to buy and sell all types of goods. Although eBay started life as an auction style sale site, the website quickly started offering a Buy It Now option. The site is free for buyers to use but the seller does pay a charge. EBay Motors was introduced in 2000. By 2006 it had sold its 2 millionth passenger vehicle.

    eBay was created by Pierre Omidyar, as part of a larger personal site. One of the first things to be sold of the AuctionWeb was a broken printer for $14.83. Omidyar contacted the buyer of the printer to make sure they knew that it was actually broken which they did. The buyer was a collector of printers. Omidyar quickly realised that this site could really work, maybe there’s always someone that will want items others don’t?!

    eBay continued as just a hobby for Omidyar until his internet provider contacted him. They informed him the site must be listed as a company going forward. Due to the high number of people visiting it. This meant that Omidyar was now being charged $250 a month for the site which he couldn’t afford. This is when he started charging for use of the site.

    Around the time eBay employed its first person to keep a check on the site, Chris Agarpao.

    In 1998 Meg Whitman was hired as eBay President and CEO. At the time the company had around 30 employees and revenue of $4.7 million in the USA. This was the year eBay went public, and on the first day of trading, the market share went to $53.50.

    By the time the 2000s hit, eBay was selling pretty much everything possible. EBay Motors was introduced during this year proving an instant hit. Selling every vehicle possible, cars, vans and motorcycles. In 2002 the company bought iBazar and also PayPal. 2008 eBay had more than 15,000 employees and had revenue of around $7.7 billion. In 2014 the announcement that eBay and PayPal will become independent companies was made. To help growth in their respective markets.
