revenue has rose 14% increasing the value of share
from 56 cents to 63 cents. Although Korea is not doing
well because of political and economical uncertainty, there is a
slow growth for e-commerce overall and little weaker in Europe
Emerging markets are driving ebays revenue:
Although EBay is an American company, more than
one-quarter of therevenue was from large market of US,
UK and Germany.
Ebay has a strong position on mobile markets from
countriessuch as India, Kenya, Nigeria, SouthAfrica and
the philippines representing more than 20% of worlds
Another success factor of ebay is it only works as a intermediary which does not
have to manage delivery, building or logistics required and labour and cost intensive
activities, unlike rivals such as Amazon who sells directly to costumers and make
profit solely from commission on sales.
