eBay’s Buy APIs have now generated $1 billion in gross merchandise bought globally, just three years after launch.
eBay’s Buy APIs (APIs geared towards third party developers) have now generated $1 billion in GMB (gross merchandise bought) globally – just three years after launch.
eBay’s Buy APIs empower third-party developers to integrate eBay inventory into websites and applications for partnered social sites, merchants, marketplaces, or any other platform. Through Buy APIs, shoppers can browse eBay listings and then check out and pay from anywhere, anytime—some even without visiting eBay.com.
This milestone is the result of a journey that began three years ago to modernize eBay’s API stack to support the fast-evolving global e-commerce space. eBay’s Buy API program has grown to meet the global scale with sizeable partners around the world. For example, Paytm Mall, an Indian e-commerce site, uses our Buy APIs to give its 130 million active users and 12 million registered merchants access to a wide selection of global inventory that would usually be out of reach locally.
