What is eBay?

eBay is a popular online shopping site noted for its auctions and direct-to-consumer sales. It’s also very popular among internet retailers as a sales method.


The History of eBay

In September 1995, eBay was created in Pierre Omidyar’s San Jose living room. It was designed from the outset to be a marketplace for individuals to buy and sell goods and services. Pierre and his cofounder Jeff Skoll hired Meg Whitman in 1998 to help them maintain their success.




The character "ubiquity" is clearly seen on the eBay website. The website is accessible from anywhere. You simply must be able to connect to the Internet. Because it is a website, you can access it at any time and from any location.


Global reach

eBay is not only well-known, but it is also a globally accessible website. eBay is accessible to everyone. They only need to create an account before they can take advantage of eBay's services.


Universal standards

eBay can be said to have universal standards. However, if you consider each element individually, you can see that eBay has varied prices and products in each country. Aside from the rates, there are the shipping expenses, which vary depending on the country. As a result, we can conclude that eBay has universal standards, but that some requirements differ from one country to the next.


Information richness

When we glance at eBay, we can immediately see that there is a lot of information. They not only provide us with textual information, but they also provide us with photographs of each product.



On the website, you are unable to communicate directly with the merchant. However, if you go further, you'll find the vendor's contact information. You can then contact the vendor using that information.


Information density

Based on the information provided, we can conclude that the product description is quite extensive. You may find a price and the end date of the auction right next to the description.
