Ebay is an American e-commerce and multi-national platform company offering consumer and business sales services online. It was founded in 1995 and is now available in over 30 countries.
What began as an auction site now includes a “Buy It Now” option, as well as links to Paypal.com, Half.com, and Stubhub.com. It is currently a multi-billion dollar company that is free to use for buyers. In 2014, the company said it would spin off Paypal as a separate company.
