Helping small businesses sell like heavyweights

We think that small businesses should have the same opportunities as major retailers.

Whether you’re operating out of a warehouse or a summer house at the end of the garden, it’s the varied products and great customer service from businesses like yours that keep buyers coming back for more.

We give everybody access to:

 

A global audience within your reach

A global audience within your reach

We believe that selling internationally shouldn't be intimidating. We’ve been helping businesses of all sizes sell all over the world for years. With 21 eBay sites worldwide, with us, everyone is a global player. By selling internationally, an average UK business could increase its sales by 16%.

We can even make international postage as easy as sending something domestically with the Global Shipping Programme (GSP).
