eBay is an online auction and e-commerce marketplace.

The platform connects millions of buyers with sellers globally utilizing PayPal to ensure secure transactions. eBay products can be sold either via a silent auction in which users are able to input the maximum price they are willing to pay and for which the site will automatically increase bids as necessary up to that maximum, or via the Buy It Now feature that enables its users to purchase items at a set price.

Its featured products are categorized as fashion, hope and garden, electronics, motors, collectibles, antiques and visual art, stationery, electronics, and more.

eBay was founded in September 1995 by Pierre Omidyar in San Jose, California.
