eBay Statistics user count and Facts 2023

eBay is an American multinational e-commerce corporation that operates an online marketplace for buying and selling goods and services. It was founded in 1995 by Pierre Omidyar and is based in San Jose, California.

eBay’s platform allows individuals and businesses to buy and sell a wide range of goods and services, including electronics, fashion, home goods, collectibles, and more. The platform also offers a variety of features, including auction-style listings, fixed-price listings, and classified ads.

In addition to its marketplace platform, eBay also owns a number of other businesses, including StubHub, a ticket resale platform, and eBay Classifieds Group, which operates a range of classified ad sites around the world.

eBay’s success is largely attributed to its ability to connect buyers and sellers from around the world, as well as its focus on providing a safe and secure platform for online transactions. The company has also been successful in adapting to changing consumer preferences and trends, such as the shift towards mobile and social commerce.

eBay Facts

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these eBay statistics 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%.
