Ecommerce and the online stores are just ahead of everything what we expected years before. eBay, the giant marketplace allows the user to buy and sell everything online, even the used or refurbished products. The first product that was sold on eBay was a broken laser pointer in 1995. eBay was found by Pierre Omidyar as a test result of software on his own homepage.

He initially tried to register eBay as “cho Bay”. In 1996, eBay has 250.000 items hosted for sale and in the next year it increased to 24,000,000 which was near a growth of 9600%.
