What does eBay mean?
eBay is an e-commerce corporation and manages the website eBay.com, an auction and shopping website in which people and businesses buy and sell a broad variety of goods and services worldwide. eBay is headquartered in San Jose, California, United States.
Pierre Omidyar, who had created the AuctionWeb trading website, had formed a web consulting concern called Echo Bay Technology Group. “Echo Bay” did not refer to the town in Nevada, It just sounded cool, Omidyar reportedly said. Omidyar had tried to register the domain name EchoBay.com but found it already taken by the Echo Bay Mines Limited, a gold mining company, so he shortened it to his second choice, eBay.com
