For 25 years, eBay has been powered by small businesses—millions of people working hard to get you exactly what you want. Their passion, experience, and expertise have made it possible for people around the world to get the items they want most. From the rare to the retro to the right-now, you can buy it on eBay and directly support a small business. And that’s no small thing.
Are you a small business owner or do you know someone who is? Our Up and Running campaign is designed to help small businesses survive this challenging time by allowing them to open up shop on eBay—free of charge.
"Running our eBay business has provided a much-needed sense of normalcy during this very uncertain time. We strive to inspire creativity and personal expression through fashion. Since we've had to temporarily close our physical shop, our eBay Store has been an absolute lifeline for maintaining that important connection with our customers."
"Even in the best of circumstances, keeping a brick-and-mortar business going is hard. By selling on eBay, I'm able to reach new customers far and wide, while also strengthening my business here in my community. It means a lot to me to keep my storefront open, and that wouldn't have been possible all these years without eBay."
"I think of my business and community like the clothing we produce-a thread on its own is somewhat fragile and exposed, but woven with others, it becomes something strong, beautiful, and new. At times like this, when we feel so disconnected, I try to focus on that. We may be one small business in Texas, but selling on eBay helps us feel like we're part of a bigger, global fabric."
