SHOPPING CART SYSTEM
eBay is The World’s Online Marketplace® with a global customer base of 233 million. Founded by Pierre Omidyar in 1995, eBay has created a powerful marketplace for the sale of goods and services by a passionate community of individuals and small businesses. eBay now has a global presence in 37 markets, including the United States.
As an early Internet enthusiast, Pierre knew that people needed a central location to buy and sell all kinds of items on a level playing field and to meet other users with similar interests. He started eBay to fulfil this need. At the time, Pierre’s fiancée (now wife) was an avid Pez™ (sweet dispenser) collector. She was having trouble finding people to trade with, and Pierre thought eBay might be the answer to her problems.
On any given day, there are millions of items listed on eBay across thousands of diverse categories, including antiques, toys, books, computers, sports, photography and electronics, amongst many others.
