Learn some amazing facts about eBay

With $2 billion worth of transactions a day, eBay is rightly considered one of the world’s largest ecommerce sites. Considering that it has only been around since 1995, that is a pretty impressive track record.

What is one of the reasons for its success? The company seems to have a knack for innovation. Take, for example, their collaboration with Myer in Australia to start the first VR store.

The point is that the company is focused on ensuring that clients keep coming back. From giving trending prices so that you are sure you are getting the best possible deal through to getting Facebook to promote the site, eBay has a good track record when it comes to interested buyers.

And, while it is not quite as big as rivals Amazon and Alibaba yet, it is nipping at their heels.

The company does also contribute to the community. It’s ‘Giving Works’ program has raised in excess of $500 million since its inception in 2003 and has supported more than 30,000 charities.

This is in addition to the work done by the eBay Foundation that has given more than $30 million to non-profit organizations worldwide.

The company has become a cult favorite when it comes to collectible items with some weird and wonderful items being auctioned over the years. Are you a fan of Star Trek? If so, you can find everything from collectible cards to retro action figures.

Unfortunately, one thing you did miss out on was a kidney stone passed by William Shatner. But don’t worry, I am sure that there are plenty of other collectibles that you can get on eBay to indulge your passion for collecting.
