eBay’s History

eBay has a long and rich history which begins in 1995. September 1995 is when eBay’s founder, Pierre Omidyar, created AuctionWeb. AuctionWeb was a website that was designed for bringing together sellers and buyers in a “honest and open marketplace.

The first item bought on AuctionWeb was a broken laser pointer. The laser pointer was listed on the website by its founder Pierre, and a Canadian named Mark Fraser was the person who bought it.

In June 1996, Pierre Omidyar hired his first employee, Chris Agarpao, and one month later Jeff Skoll was brought on as president of the company.

The first office space for the growing company was bought in October 1996, and it was located in San Jose, California, at 1025 Hamilton Avenue Suite #250. Today, this building is known as the Music building (Building 6) on the eBay company campus.

In 1997, less than two years after its creation, AuctionWeb sells its one millionth item: a Sesame Street Big Bird jack-in-the-box toy. And in September of the same year, AuctionWeb was renamed and eBay was officially born.

In February 1998, Meg Mitman joined eBay as its president and CEO (chief executive officer). May 1998 saw the release of “My eBay” which allowed for buyers and sellers to customize their eBay experience.

In July of the same year, eBay acquired its first company: Jump Inc., and this acquisition brought along with it the person-to-person online trading site, Up4Sale.

eBay went public in September 1998, and the eBay Foundation became the first foundation to be endowed with pre-IPO (Initial Public Offering) stock in December of that year.

By July 1999, eBay was already making moves to expand to other countries. That month, eBay launched websites in Germany, Australia, and the United Kingdom.

June 2000, ebay University was opened, and in July 2000 eBay announced it bought Half.com. In November 2000, eBay began to let buyers buy items at a fixed-price. This feature was called "Buy it Now,” and it is still available today.

June 2001 saw the launch of eBay stores which allowed for people to create their own customized businesses in the eBay marketplace. A little more than one year later in July 2002, eBay acquired PayPal and maintained control of it for 13 years until it was turned into an independent company in July 2015.

In October 2005, eBay acquired Skype, and in June 2008, eBay became one of the first companies to launch an iPhone app. Today that app is available for Android and other operating systems.

In August 2012, the Global Shipping program was launched, and in June 2017, eBay announced their Price Match Guarantee.

Currently, eBay continues to thrive and expand its operations. To date, it has donated hundreds of millions of dollars to charity, and eBay continues to support initiatives that strive to include more women in business.

eBay - information about online store

The company handles the eBay website, an online auction and shopping website in which people and companies purchase and sell a large variety of goods and services worldwide. The website is totally free to use for buyers, but sellers are charged costs for noting items after a minimal number of free listings, and again when those products are offered.

In addition to eBay's original auction-style sales, the site has actually evolved and broadened to consist of: immediate "Buy It Now" shopping; shopping by Universal Product Code, ISBN, or another kind of SKU number (through Half.com, which was closed down in 2017); online classified ads (by means of Kijiji, or eBay Classifieds); online occasion ticket trading (by means of StubHub); and other services. eBay previously used online money transfers as part of its services (through PayPal, which was a wholly-owned subsidiary of eBay from 2002 to 2015).



The AuctionWeb was established in California on September 3, 1995, by French-born Iranian-American computer developer Pierre Omidyar as part of a bigger individual website. One of the first products offered on AuctionWeb was a damaged laser pointer for $14.83. Astonished, Omidyar got in touch with the winning bidder to ask if he understood that the laser guideline was broken. In his responding email, the buyer described: "I'm a collector of damaged laser pointers." It quickly became the first online auction website permitting person-to-person deals, which caused a mass volume of online transactions.

Supposedly, eBay was merely a hobby for Omidyar till his Internet service supplier notified him he would require to update to an organisation account due to the high volume of traffic to his site. The resulting price boost (from $30/month to $250) prompted him to begin charging those who used eBay, which was not met any bitterness. It did result in the hiring of Chris Agarpao as eBay's very first extra worker to procedure sent by mail checks coming in for costs.

Jeffrey Skoll was hired as the first brand-new president of the company in early 1996. In November 1996, the E-Commerce platform participated in its first third-party licensing deal, with a business called Electronic Travel Auction, to use SmartMarket Technology to offer aircraft tickets and other travel products. Development was incredible; in January 1997 the site hosted 2,000,000 auctions, compared to 250,000 during the entire of 1996.

The company officially changed the name of its service from AuctionWeb to eBay in September 1997. Omidyar had actually tried to sign up the domain name echobay.com, but found it currently taken by the Echo Bay Mines, a gold mining business, so he reduced it to his 2nd choice, eBay.com.

Meg Whitman was employed by the board as eBay President and CEO in March 1998. At the time, the company had 30 employees, half a million users and incomes of $4.7 million in the United States. In 2001, eBay had the biggest userbase of any e-commerce site.

The often duplicated story that eBay was established to help Omidyar's fiancee trade Pez candy dispensers were made by a public relations manager, Mary Lou Song, in 1997 to interest the media, which were not thinking about the company's previous description about wishing to develop a "ideal market". This was revealed in Adam Cohen's book, The Perfect Store (2002), and verified by eBay.

After eBay went public, both Omidyar and Skoll ended up being instantaneous billionaires. eBay's target share cost of $18 was all however overlooked as the price went to $53.50 on the very first day of trading.

The Pez dispenser misconception created massive amounts of publicity and resulted in some of eBay's most explosive early growth amongst toy collectors. At the time, Beanie Babies (produced by Ty, Inc.) were the leader in the toy classification and the most hard brand to discover in retail shops. Beanie Babies quickly ended up being the dominant product on eBay, representing 10% of all eBay listings in 1997.

While eBay was still a privately held business, 2 major factors added to its growing market share:

The growing collectibility of Beanie Babies in the mid-1990s - collectors internationally were attempting to finish their collection of Beanie Babies.

Ty producing the very first business-to-consumer Web site - the initial Ty Web website contained an online trading post where people might trade their Beanie Babies; however, the trading post was overwhelmed with unsortable listings, producing a legitimate demand for a more efficient online system to purchase and trade Beanie Babies in the secondary market

As an outcome, eBay offered an user-friendly interface to browse for specific Beanie Babies that collectors were looking for.

On September 21, 1998, eBay went public. In the threat aspects area of the annual report filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission in 1998, Omidyar notes eBay's dependence on the continued strength of the Beanie Babies market.


As the company expanded product classifications beyond collectibles into nearly any salable product, business grew quickly. In 2000, eBay had actually 12 million signed up users and a cyber inventory of more than 4.5 million items on sale on any provided day. In February 2002 the business bought iBazar, a comparable European auction website founded in 1998, and then purchased PayPal on October 3, 2002.

After nearly ten years at eBay, Whitman chose to get in politics. In late 2009 eBay completed the sale of Skype for $2.75 billion, but still owned 30% equity in the business.


In 2012 eBay was charged by the United States Department of Justice with getting in into non-solicitation arrangements with other technology companies including their extremely competent staff members.

On September 30, 2014, eBay announced it would spin off PayPal into a different publicly-traded company, a demand made nine months prior by activist hedge fund magnate Carl Icahn. Flipkart and eBay entered into a tactical collaboration in 2017 under which eBay Inc obtained a 5.44% stake in Flipkart in exchange for its eBay India business for $211 Mn and a $514 Mn money investment.

On January 31, 2018, eBay announced that it would change PayPal as its main payment service provider with Netherlands-based start-up Adyen. The shift was set to be completed by 2021, but PayPal would remain an acceptable payment option on the site until additional notification.

On July 31, 2019, the business obtained a 5.59 percent stake in Paytm Mall.

On September 25, 2019, it was revealed that Devin Wenig would be stepping down as eBay's CEO and that Scott Schenkel, senior vice president and chief monetary officer since 2015, had actually been selected as the interim CEO. On April 13, 2020, it was revealed that Jamie Iannone would become the CEO on April 27.
