Persian Born June 21, 1967 (1967-06-21) (age 43) Paris, France Occupation Founder and Chairman, eBay Inc. Net worth US$5.5 Billion (2009) Spouse(s)

Pamela Kerr Omidyar Website pmo.vox.com (Persian: born June 21, 1967) is a French-born Iranian entrepreneur and philanthropist/economist, & the founder/chairman of the eBay auction site. Early Life & Work

Born in Paris, France to Iranian immigrant parents. Mother Elah Mir-Djalali Omidyar (doctorate in linguistics at the Sorbonne, is herself a well-known academic). Father was a surgeon. Growing up in Washington, D.C., Pierre's interest in computers began at the Potomac School, which started to increase when he was in the 9th grade. Graduated from St. Andrew's Episcopal School in Potomac, Maryland in 1984. Graduated with a degree in computer science from Tufts University in 1988. Work for Claris, an Apple Computer subsidiary, where he helped write MacDraw. In 1991 he co-founded Ink Development, a pen-based computing startup that was later rebranded as an ecommerce company and renamed eShop.

eBay & Later Career The site was launched on Labor Day, Monday, September 4, 1995, as "Auction Web" It was hosted on a site Omidyar had created for information on the ebola virus. The word 'eBay' was made up on the fly by Omidyar when he was told that his first choice for his web site, 'echobay,' had already been registered and later he came up with 'eBay.' The service was free at first, but started charging in order to cover internet service provider costs. AUCTION TYPES Auction-style listings: allow seller to offer 1 or

more items for sale for a specified number of days. The seller can establish a reserve price. Fixed price format: allows seller to offer 1 or more items for sale at a Buy It Now price. Buyers who agree to pay that price win the auction immediately without submitting a bid. Fixed price format with best offer: allows seller to accept best offers. If a buyer submits a best offer, the seller either rejects or accepts the best offer. If the best offer is not satisfactory, a seller may submit a counter offer to the buyer.

Best offer is not available for auction style listings. In addition, best offer is not available in every category. Sellers also meet specific requirements in order to sell with best offer. Bidding Proxy bidding: bidding on eBay's auction-style listings. Essentially equivalent to a Vickrey auction, with the following exceptions.

The winning bidder pays the second-highest bid + one bid increment amount . (i.e., some small predefined amount relative to the bid size), instead of simply the second-highest bid. However, since the bid increment amounts are relatively insignificant compared to the bid size, they are not considered from a strategic standpoint. The current winning bid is not sealed, but instead is always displayed. However, at any given moment, the highest bidder's bid is not necessarily displayed, since this amount may be higher than the amount required to win the auction.

Seller ratings On January 24, 2010 Auctionbytes.com held an open survey. Sellers could effectively rate eBay itself, as well as competing auction and marketplace sites. In the survey, users were asked to rank 15 sites based on five criteria: Profitability Customer Service Communication Ease of Use

Recommendation After the results were published, eBay had finished 13th overall, edged out by established sites such as Amazon and Craigslist, as well as lesser-known upstarts like Atomic Mall and Ruby Lane. In individual category rankings, eBay was rated the worst of all the 15 sites on Customer Service and Communication, and average on Ease of Use. A number of respondents said they would have given eBay a rating of ten 3 to 5 years ago. eBay was rated twelfth out of fifteen in the Recommended Selling Venue category. PROFIT & TRANSACTION Generates

revenue: various fees The eBay fee system, there are fees: to list a product (Insertion Fee) fees when the product sells (Final Value Fee), several optional adornment fees, all based on various factors and scales. Eg.The U.S.-based eBay.com takes $0.10 to $4 (based on the opening price) for a basic listing without any adornments and 8.75% or less of the final price (as of May 2009). Profit and transactions

Current business strategy includes increasing international trade. eBay has already expanded to over countries including China & India. Expansion failed: Taiwan & Japan, (Yahoo!) & New Zealand, (TradeMe) owned by the Fairfax media group is the dominant online auction website. For most listing categories, eBay sellers are permitted

to offer a variety of payment systems such as Paypal, Paymate, ProPay, and Moneybookers. Affiliate payout system that calls Quality Click Pricing, affiliates are paid an amount determined by an undisclosed algorithm. The total earnings amount is then divided by the number of clicks the affiliate sent to eBay and is reported as Earnings Per Click, or EPC. Prohibited or restricted items eBay

Now, was essentially unregulated. it became necessary to restrict or forbid auctions for various items. Some of the restrictions relate to eBay.com (the U.S. site), while other restrictions apply to specific European sites (such as Nazi paraphernalia). Regional laws and regulations may apply to the seller or the buyer. If the sale or ownership of an item is regulated or prohibited by one or more states, eBay will not permit its listing.
