Small Business Ambassador Network

eBay connects European sellers with policymakers in Brussels and European capitals to allow SMEs to share their concerns about legislation impacting small businesses trading online.

Italy Seller

Our mission is to regularly connect European sellers with policymakers to highlight the importance of SME-friendly policy. All seller participants are members of our Small Business Ambassador Network program, selected for their dedication to helping all Internet-enabled small businesses across the EU. These sellers take time away from their businesses and their families to travel to Brussels and other European capitals to meet with policymakers.

eBay launched this highly effective program fifteen years ago and we have received consistent feedback from policymakers that these meetings are highly valuable.
