eBay Facts

eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY) is where the world goes to shop, sell and give. Whether you’re buying new or used, common or luxurious, trendy or rare – if it exists in the world, it’s probably for sale on eBay. Our great value and unique selection helps every person find their version of perfect, no matter what it is. (source)

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these eBay stats come from their own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
