Analyzing Managerial Decisions: eBay.com
How does eBay create value?
eBay creates value through connecting sellers and buyers on an online platform. The company has created a virtual market where persons can both buy and sell different types of commodities in a safe and organized way. Therefore, eBay provides a platform for persons who not have time to visit physical markets to shop from the comforts of their homes or offices (Brickley, Smith & Zimmerman, 2009). Additionally, the firm ensures the transactions are conducted safely and the prices are reasonable.
