Every second, eBay users trade more than $1,359 worth of goods. That?s more than $40 billion in gross merchandise (and $34 billion more than Amazon) a year. This isn?t nickel and dime stuff either?cars sell on eBay at the rate of one every other minute, and there are thousands of forklifts up for auction every day. More than 724,000 professional sellers in the United States now use eBay as a primary or secondary source of income. Businesses are recognizing the value of joining in.

Janelle Elms, a leading eBay University instructor and author, will moderate an insightful discussion with two local companies that have unlocked the key to eBay riches. Howard Hawk of Bidadoo and Greg Harrison of Mpire have made doing business on eBay easier than ever?and they believe the eBay revolution is just beginning.

As a sales channel, eBay is home to more than 336,000 stores, and fixed-price buying and selling has climbed to 32 percent of eBay?s gross merchandise volume. You?ll learn strategies for leveraging eBay as a global trading platform to reach 170 million users in 33 markets around the world.
