Bridging Distance to Opportunity for French Small Businesses


What's in the Report?

Read eBay’s report on how the online commerce platform reduces the costs of doing business over distance and enables small businesses throughout France to extend their market reach:

  • Almost all eBay-enabled firms in France are international.
  • They served customers in, on average, 23 different countries in 2016 and 62% reached four or more different continents.
  • They operate from almost anywhere in France, thriving also in the more peripheral regions that do not benefit from high GDP or large populations.
  • Policy action is needed to ensure more inclusive access to economic opportunity through small business digital adoption, administrative simplification and reduced costs to expand cross-border.
