eBay is an American multinational corporation and e-commerce company with headquarters in San Jose, California, providing online consumer-to-consumer and business-to-consumer sales services. eBay was founded by Pierre Omidyar in 1995, and became a notable success story of the dot-com bubble. Today it is a multibillion-dollar business operating in 180 countries.
The company manages eBay.com, an online auction and shopping website in which people and businesses buy and sell a broad variety of goods and services worldwide. In addition to its auction-style sales, the website has since expanded to include “Buy It Now” shopping.
Channable offers a quick and easy solution to sell on eBay. Channable is an eBay listing software with which you can manage and optimize all your products in one place. Your product feed can then be used to create an eBay API comprised of exactly the products you wish to market.
