With more than 105 million active users,  eBay is the world’s largest online marketplace. It helps sellers of all sizes – from individuals and small merchants to top brands and retailers – compete in today’s rapidly changing retail world. Today ebay.co.uk is home to more than 60 million live listings. Shoppers can browse auction-style listings for used goods, vintage items and quirky, one-of-a-kind finds, or search fixed price products from 190,000 registered businesses and more than 100 high-street retailers, that use eBay as a channel to reach the UK’s largest online shopping audience.


The business continues to invest in technology and innovation. As a mobile commerce leader, its suite of mobile apps have been downloaded 100 million times globally, and this year the business expects $10 billion to be transacted via mobile. This is the new eBay – connecting buyers and sellers, anytime, anywhere, to the things they need and love.


eBay.co.uk is owned by eBay Inc, which has expanded to include a range of brands that help consumers find and purchase the goods they want. These brands include eBay, PayPal, Shopping.com, RedLaser, Milo and others.
