eBay History

eBay was originally founded under the name AuctionWeb in 1994 by Pierre Omidyar in San Jose, California.  The first item sold on the site was a broken laser pointer. Growth was rapid.  In January 1997, the site was hosting 2 million auctions per month.  In September 1997, the name was officially changed to eBay. Also in 1997, the company received venture funding from Benchmark Capital. Meg Whitman was hired as CEO in March 1998.  eBay went public in September of 1998. In 2002, the company purchased IBazar and Paypal. By 2008, the company had expanded worldwide and is one of the few success stories from the dot com bubble. The eBay corporate office is still located in San Jose, CA.

I was issued a $50 coupon by one of your management members. I did use it on a pair of in ear headphones. They turned out to be fraudulent. The seller has issued a refund, but I don’t know how to use it. It shows up on my paypal as a refund but when I try to buy something there is no sign of it. I’ve called your customer service and even talked to a supervisor. I must admit he was quite rude. Please advise. M. Tyler.Moreton

I am currently in Croatia with Samaritan’s Purse. We are providing humanitarian aid to the middle east refugees and would like to provide them with backpacks and non-food items. Local vendors cannot keep up with the quantities we need in the timeframe required. If ebay has suppliers in the region and would like to assist this effort please contact me via email for more details. Thank you.

Ebay will not list a working phone number to answer customer complaints because I.m sure they are swamped with unhappy customers. I p;an on putting this on my facbook account so people will not sell on ebay due to the inability of there customer service people to
answer questions the same way. everyone gives you different information to the same question. When will my money be released for an item sold. Talked to 10 different people inlcluding supervisors at e bay and pay pal all had a different answers to my same question. I have since closed all other items that I posted for sale on ebay due to this problem. You think business being slow that they would give exceptional customer service, but they don’t. So goodbye to e bay. I dont need to give a percentage of my money for people who are that incompetent. I guess I will stick with Craigs list. Thanks for nothing ebay.
