  • eBay Seller Tomoyo Arai
    I really appreciate eBay for helping me realize my ideal style of working. An eBay business allows you to work remotely, and that is the demanded style of working these days. I am an active seller and support people who want to make eBay exporting their career.

  • eBay Seller JP Company
    The major difference between selling domestically and on eBay is that sellers can do business with buyers from many different countries. eBay’s brand awareness and ability to attract customers is huge compared to your own website. In that sense, I think eBay is the best tool to start overseas sales easily.

  • eBay Seller Shun Kawakami
    I am very happy to be appreciated by customers from all over the world even though I live in Japan. Because I started eBay at the beginning of my business startup, I could become financially stable. What if I had not started my eBay business at that time...It’s a little scary to think so.
