Joe Cortese, Owner, NobleSpirit

Pittsfield, NH

“eBay allowed me to transition from wholesale to being a retailer that goes straight to the user. The minute I sold a duck stamp to a stamp collector in Alaska that I never would have conceivably had access to in any other way, I was hooked.”

Laure Swanson, Owner, RC Hunting Store

Aberdeen, ND 

"As a small business, eBay provides us with another tool to thrive amongst the larger big box stores. Without any technical background or experience selling online, eBay was the first to help me through the process and was pivotal in springboarding my business forward.” 

 

Brian Franco, Owner, Sustainable Supply

Broomfield, CO  

“Without the internet my business would not exist. eBay has helped us grow our business by connecting us with the millions of customers who use the platform everyday. eBay allowed us to create new technology based jobs that have positively impacted the local economy.”
