This month marks the 20th anniversary of eBay, the iconic global brand and vibrant marketplace where the world goes to shop, sell, and give. Founded over Labor Day weekend in 1995, the e-commerce pioneer revolutionized the way people connected 20 years ago and remains a leading technology innovator. With the release of eBay 4.0, a new app for iOS and Android, eBay continues to innovate by creating an easier, more personalized way to shop and sell, and enabling its global community to discover a singular selection of things that inspire them – anytime, anywhere.
“We’re just getting started. The new eBay mobile app reflects our commitment to designing great experiences for our buyers and enabling continued growth for our sellers.” said Devin Wenig, eBay Chief Executive Officer.
“eBay 4.0 is a significant step for the company and underscores our commitment to the mobile commerce world we live in today,” said RJ Pittman, eBay Chief Product Officer. “Inspired by customer feedback, the new app introduces a simplified user experience and personalization that learns from your interests, and delivers a tailored shopping and selling experience based on activity.”
In addition to its new app, eBay is introducing a range of initiatives around the world to mark the anniversary milestone and celebrate its global community of buyers and sellers.
On September 9, in the United States, eBay will launch an exclusive Deals promotion – 20 Days of Deals – delivering daily access to incredible deals from featured sellers. The Deals frenzy on fashion, tech and home items will be available at deeply discounted prices, always accompanied by free shipping, including:

In addition to great shopping deals, eBay is also inviting everyone to list more items for free as part of its anniversary celebration. Available now through October 15, people everywhere can take advantage of a special selling offer to list more items – 80 additional fixed price or auction-style listings – and pay zero listing fees.
