When looking back to history of ebay company, it ran to 1995. The owner of the ebay website is Pierre Omidyar and he wanted to create a ‘AuctionWeb’ to be an online marketplace. As the first step, he wrote the first code for it in one weekend. The name ‘ebay’ derives like this; E comes from his company name – “Echo Bay” and by using “Bay” word. The first thing ever sold on this ebay site was Omidyar’s broken laser pointer. Its value was $14.
This website was growing faster and became massive popular. At the beginning, it has been designed to collect a small fee on each sale and when the fees quickly added up to more than Omidyar’s salary, and so he decided to quit his job and work on the ebay site full-time. In 1996, to let buyers and sellers rate each other and make buying/selling safer, he added the feedback facilities to this website. In 1999, ebay launched sites in the UK, Australia and Germany and went worldwide. In the year 2000, ebay introduced “Buy it Now” facility and bought “PayPal”, an online payment service, in 2002. Today, there are now literally millions of items bought and sold every day on ebay, all over the world. Do you know that for every $100 spent online worldwide, it is estimated that $14 is spent on eBay? What a massive popular for ebay website!
