Ebay (www.ebay.com. is a leading online marketplace where individuals and businesses trade goods, both new and used. It is the largest online marketplace in the world and it is a great place to buy and sell products online. It was founded in 1995 by a French computer programmer named Pierre Omidyar, who was born in France on June 21, 1967. He started programming when he was 11 years pd. By 1994, Omidyar was working for the Claris software company based in Los Angeles, California. He created a simple prototype site called AuctionWeb in his spare time. AuctionWeb was an online auction bidding system that let people bid on items from all over the world. He envisioned that people would be able to access the site from any computer and be able to bid on items that would be shipped directly to them.
Omidyar eventually left Claris to start his own company. AuctionWeb Inc., which he renamed as “eBay”, an acronym for “electronic Bay”. The site went live on September 3, 1995. On October 31, 1995, eBay announced its acquisition of online trading platform on EightBit, Inc. The acquisition was almost entirely financed by Omidyar’s personal credit card. Just over two weeks later, the company acquired iBazar, an online auction price comparison service. In 1996, the company raised $10 million of venture capital led by Benchmark Capital, at a $60 million valuation. By 1997, the company had expanded service to four countries in Europe. By 1998, the company was doing business in 15 countries and had a staff of 400 people serving 5 million users and doing 1 billion page views per month. eBay went public on September 21, 1998, and became a subsidiary of eBay Inc., which was then renamed as “PayPal Inc.”
In 1999, eBay bought PayPal for about $1.5 billion in stock from Omidyar and other early investors. The deal closed in October 2002, and brought the number of employees up to 3,000. Paypal’s corporate offices were moved to San Jose, California. In September 2000, eBays initial public offering occurred at a value of $18 per share with an overallotment option that brought the total shares up to 25% of the company. The stock has split three times since then. As of 2008, eBay has total assets worth $17 billion; revenues of $6 billion; and net income of $1 billion (see “eBay Revenue and Profits”.
