eBay History

Before becoming what it is today, eBay first hit the market under the name AuctionWeb. It was founded in California in September 1995 by French-born Iranian-American computer programmer Pierre Omidyar. One of the first items sold was a broken laser pointer for $14. Surprised, Omidyar reached out to the winning bidder to ask if he understood that the laser pointer was broken, and the buyer explained; "I'm a collector of broken laser pointers." It soon became the first online auction site allowing person-to-person transactions.

AuctionWeb was a hobby for Omidyar until his Internet service provider informed him he would need to upgrade to a business account due to the high site traffic. The monthly price increase from $30 to $250 prompted him to start charging eBay users, who still continued to use the site. In the whole year of 1996 there was a total of 250,000 auctions, then in just the month of January 1997 there were 200,000 auctions alone, and they continued to have exponential growth throughout the next decade. Omidyar had a consulting firm known as Echo Bay Technology Group, and considered the domain name echobay.com, but it was already taken by a gold mining company, so Omidyar shortened it to eBay.com in September 1997, and the rest is history.

 


 

eBay FAQs

What is the eBay Global Shipping Program?

eBay’s Global Shipping Program (GSP) was created for UK based eBay sellers to more easily sell their products to worldwide buyers. To learn more about GSP, visit eBay’s GSP info page. GSP may be an option for you to buy from UK sellers, but be aware combined postage with eBay is not available with GSP, so you may be better off with a MyUS Premium Membership to allow you to bundle multiple eBay orders along with orders from other UK stores.

Does eBay price match? 

eBay sellers can offer a set price as a “buy it now” product listing, or sellers can make the product listing auction style where buyers outbid each other. But there is no traditional price match program per se.

How to cancel a bid on eBay?

Accidents happen. eBay allows bids to be retracted in some, but not all situations.

  • A bid can be retracted if:
    • The seller significantly changed the item description

    • You accidentally bid the wrong amount. In this case, enter the price you intended to bid as soon as you've retracted the incorrect bi

  • In addition to the above, timing is also important:
    • If there are 12 hours or more left before the listing ends, all bids.
    • If the listing is ending in less than 12 hours, you can retract your most recent bid so long as it's been less than 1 hour since you placed the bid.

Keep in mind you can't always retract a bid once it's made. Bids on trading cards and similar categories can't be retracted. If you're unable to retract a bid, you could also contact the seller to see if they'll cancel your bid on your behalf. The decision to cancel is at the discretion of the seller.

For more information on how to retract a bid on ebay, visit eBay’s customer service page on the topic.

How to cancel an order on eBay?

Visit eBay’s customer service order cancellation page for more information on how to cancel eBay orders.
