eBay was founded in 1995 by the US based Internet entrepreneur Pierre Omidyar and was the first online auction marketplace where people can buy and sale goods to other Internet users. With over 150 million customers globally today eBay is the Worlds largest online marketplace operating in over thirty separate markets representing millions of items across thousands of diverse categories. As well as being the largest online marketplace regional eBay marketplaces often top their region for market share of Internet sales and purchases.

In the 1990's Pierre was an early enthusiast of the Internet and the opportunities it presented. His partner had a growing Pez (the sweet dispenser) collection and was having difficulty finding similarly minded people to trade with. Pierre thought that the Internet could provide a central virtual marketplace for individuals and small businesses to sell, meet & promote their goods and services to others with similar niche interests. eBay development started soon after and on it's launch this novel idea proved extraordinary popular and became a whirlwind success within the US Internet community. Soon eBay buying began to attract customers from other countries and development of separate global marketplaces began in earnest.

The UK eBay marketplace was launched in October 1999, and is the countries largest online market place and No. 1 e-commerce site.
