Introduction

Even if you’ve never browsed the merchandise or placed a bid, you’ve probably heard about eBay, the Web’s largest online auction site. From analyses of the fastest-growing company in history to stories about oddball items for sale—like the infamous Virgin Mary grilled cheese sandwich or the guy who rented out his forehead as a billboard—eBay makes headlines.

But behind the hype, there are many good reasons to actually use eBay. It lets you:

  • Shop around the clock at an immense, worldwide marketplace.

  • Name the price you’re willing to pay. If you don’t win one auction, there’s always another.

  • Buy collectibles and other items you’d never find at the local mall.

  • Be your own boss—run a retail business out of your home.
