The New Commerce

The eBay platform provides small businesses and entrepreneurs with an opportunity to reach customers all over the world. This is especially true in Europe, where eBay is helping to create a new era of opportunity for small businesses all over the continent. Traditional commerce over distance carries costs related to transportation, red tape, communication, and other impediments. Our newly released white paper “Empowering People and Creating Opportunity in the Digital Single Market” shows how technology is changing that. Based on the findings in this paper, we have created a highly interactive map. Just click the map image below to access the interactive map and explore how new, technology-driven commerce is taking shape in each EU country.
