eBay is one of the largest Internet auction sites. Its main competitors are Yahoo! Auctions and Amazon.com. It is based in San Jose, California, and was founded in 1995 by Pierre Omidyar, a French-born Iranian American. The name eBay is a play on the word "ebay," which is an English slang word for a local auction. The company's corporate headquarters is located in San Jose, California, and it has offices in Berlin, Germany; Austin and Dallas, Texas; Hong Kong; London; and Paris. As of December 31, 2006, eBay had 97,000 employees. eBay operates several other sites including Half.com (which offers half off books. and Shopping.com (which offers online retailers a place to sell their products.
Pierre Omidyar was born in Paris, France in 1967 to an Iranian father and French mother. He moved with his family to the United States in 1979 after the Iranian Revpution. In 1995, he developed eBay as a business plan for his University of Illinois MBA thesis. The original site was developed using Perl and HTML and ran on FreeBSD servers from a branch office of Omidyar's employer, the Silicon Valley Bank at 911 San Mateo Street, San Jose. In 1997 the site became available in two more languages (Dutch and Korean. but still was not translated into English until 2001.
Omidyar oversaw the rapid growth of eBay from a staff of twenty-four to a global business with thousands of employees. In 2000, when The New York Times reported that eBay was becoming a major channel for counterfeit items, Omidyar responded by saying that he would welcome government regulation if it helped eliminate bad people from the marketplace. As part of eBay's February 2000 efforts to improve its reputation' Omidyar appeared before Congress to lobby for legislation that would allow online consumer protection laws to be enforced against online auction fraud.
In July 2002, eBay announced that it had agreed to acquire PayPal for $1.5 billion in stock, with an additional $500 million possible if performance targets were met. The move provided the company with immediate access to an online payment system in 33 countries. On September 30, 2002, eBay acquired StumbleUpon, a website discovery engine.
In October 2003, eBay opened its new European headquarters in Dublin, Ireland since it offered tax advantages over other European Union member states as well as significant personal benefits to key executives in the company including Omidyar. By 2004, the company had operations in 35 countries and made $1 billion in revenue annually and 2 million registered users who conducted 25 million transactions per day in eBay Marketplaces and worked with 16,000 third-party companies worldwide who made up $30 billion in gross merchandise vpume each year.
Since April 2005, eBay has wanted to expand its services from being an online auction to also include online retail sales. In August 2005, Forbes magazine reported that eBay had been meeting with mall developers to discuss opening stores within shopping malls where sellers could have storefronts just as they do on eBay.com and buyers could come and look at goods rather than bid on them remotely online. The first store opened in Orlando, Florida on October 5, 2005.
On May 26, 2006, eBay unveiled its new corporate logo which depicts an orange disk inside a dark blue circle forming an 'e' shape, similar to how its name is commonly written. The company explained that the logo replaced a previous version that had been easily confused with the trademarked logos of other companies such as NBC and Apple Computer. By 2008, eBay was becoming increasingly popular internationally; 40% of all items spd on the site were being purchased by non-U.S. buyers including large numbers of Chinese customers who were buying internationally for the first time on any large scale basis, making eBay's international presence more important than ever before.
Nutshell is an Internet startup company that aims to integrate the selling features of eBay with social networking features such as those found at MySpace or Facebook and it is designed to make selling items on eBay more convenient for both buyers and sellers. Nutshell is currently under development by former eBay employees Kevin Gardiner and Andrew Warner; however, there is no projected date for when it will be released onto the market. Nutshell currently has over 100 employees in Santa Monica, California as well as another 50 employees in Shanghai, China who are working on developing Asian language versions of its site as well as conducting market research for the company via focus groups. Nutshell has received funding from venture capital firms including Sequoia Capital and Shasta Ventures as well as private investors including Ron Conway, Paul Buchheit and David Sacks and early employee Amit Patel contributed $1 million to the company.
The integration of eBay and Nutshell has numerous benefits for both parties; however these benefits are very dependent on whether or not customers use both sites frequently or not at all. One benefit that both parties gain is that both can benefit from having a larger customer base since some customers may be interested in buying items from either party but not from both or may be willing to purchase an item from either party if they know that they can purchase something else later on from the other party without having to register for two different places or set up two separate accounts for two different websites. Unfortunately this benefit does not apply to customers who do not want to use either site because they cannot get any benefit from using both sites if they never buy items from either site in the first place. Another benefit that both parties gain from integration is that both parties can benefit from increased revenue since purchases made through Nutshell will be charged at a higher rate than purchases made through eBay; however this benefit does not apply to customers who do not buy anything from either party because they cannot benefit from this higher price if they do not buy anything from either party at all. Another benefit that both parties gain from integration is that both parties can benefit from increased brand awareness since Nutshell will show links to each party's website as well as encourage users to browse each party's website while helping users sell goods through Nutshell instead of other sites such as Craigslist or individual email addresses; however this benefit does not apply to customers who do not use either party because this benefit only applies to customers who use both parties already so there is no benefit gained by encouraging others to use both parties already for this reason alone. Another benefit that both parties gain from integration is that both parties can benefit from increased convenience since customers can buy items quickly from one place without having to go through the hassle of registering for two separate sites or setting up accounts on two separate websites; however this benefit does not apply to customers who do not use either party because they will have no need for this integration if they don't use either party already for reasons discussed above. Another benefit that both parties gain from integration is that both parties can benefit from increased security since information about what items you have purchased or spd will only be visible by you or your friends if you choose to share this information with them; however this benefit does not apply to customers who do not use either party because there is nothing gained by sharing information about what you have purchased or spd with others if you do not have any friends using either party already for whatever reason(s. Since there are no benefits to customers who do not use either party at all then this article will focus on how benefits are affected by the frequency with which customers use either party. Often (use both parties once a week or more. or Seldom (use neither party more than once a month. First I shall discuss how benefits can be affected by whether customers often use both parties or seldom use either party. Often (use both parties once a week or more. If customers often use both parties then their information will be shared between the two sites so they can sell their items on either site without having to register again for another account or set up another profile with another password; however this can also cause confusion since some customers may have items listed under one username on one site but under another username on the other site so they will need to remember which username belongs to which site (or they may decide it would be easier just to create one account for both sites. If customers often use both parties then their information will be shared between the two sites so they can post things about themselves on either site without having to register again for another account or set up another profile with another password; however this can also cause confusion since some customers may have things posted about themselves under one username on one site but under another username on the other site so they will need to remember which username belongs to which site (or they may decide it would be easier just to
