Dimension Scores of the Global Marketplace Index
Marketplaces such as eBay are succeeding in empowering small business owners by creating economic opportunity while also making a positive impact on their lives and communities. In 2019, Australia, Germany, South Korea, the United Kingdom, and the United States scored above 80 on the Global Marketplace Index, demonstrating that small businesses are greatly empowered by selling through marketplaces. Below is a breakdown of dimension scores, which are equally rated at 20 points, resulting in a maximum score of 100.
With 70% of his total sales coming from eBay and other online channels, Mark credits eBay for growing his business and making it as successful as it is today.
"eBay has been fundamental to our business success. Not only is it a user-friendly platform, ideal for small businesses, but its unrivaled reach has enabled us to really get our products and brand out there."

United KingdomJade Oliver
While studying law at university in Bristol, Jade Oliver decided to turn to eBay to sell refurbished and re-upholstered furniture to help fund her student loan.
When Jade graduated, she landed a training contract at a law firm in Bristol where she became a qualified Corporate Lawyer. Alongside her demanding full-time job, Jade continued to grow her furniture and homeware business in her spare time — Heavenly Homes and Gardens.
Three years ago, after 10 years in law, Jade decided to leave her career and run her home interiors business full time.
In September 2019, the success of Jade’s eBay shop meant that she was able to open her own bricks and mortar store in Ross-on-Wye.

United StatesClara Jeanne LaCelle
In 2002, when California resident Clara Jeanne LaCelle was left with makeup products worth several thousands of dollars after a failed business attempt, a friend recommended eBay to her as another potential marketplace to sell her inventory.
Clara grew her small business online over the years, using the same grit, resilience and resourcefulness she had while growing up in foster care. Through her business, she was able to support her four children through college — completely debt-free.
"Our four children were all born in a three-year period, and before we could blink, we had four children in college,” she said. “We suddenly needed a new source of income. eBay became our solution. I cannot imagine another career where we would have been able to increase our income so rapidly."
Clara also is committed toward giving back and supporting charities through her small business. She has donated over $150,000 USD to girls in the foster care system and provides training for them on life and business skills to thrive.

Ali came to Germany in 2001 as an Iranian refugee. While supporting his family with temporary work, he had the idea to repair and sell sewing machines on eBay. In 2010, he turned his hobby into an online business. It soon became the main source of income for Rezazadeh and his family.
The secret of his success? Easy accessibility for his customers. True to his motto "Change is the only constant," Ali is currently working on the expansion of his store. His next goal is to expand his product range to include industrial sewing machines.
