“Global 24/7” aims to help small medium enterprises (SMEs) start their global online business by providing several benefits and tools, including incentives of up to US$2,900 or P 140,000.00
eBay is launching “Global 24/7,” an e-commerce accelerator program specifically designed to help SMEs leverage eBay’s platform for global export.
This e-commerce accelerator program provides start-up incentives, necessary tools, training, and assistance for business owners to tap into eBay’s global marketplace of over 174 million active buyers. The program is extended to markets across the Southeast Asia region which includes Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, and Vietnam.
“Our aspiration with the Global 24/7 program is to empower businesses by helping them move online more quickly and giving them the opportunity to participate in an international marketplace with approximately 1.5 billion live listings at any given time across 190 markets,” said Tam Yong Sheng, head of Business Development eBay Southeast Asia.
The program will run until Dec. 31, 2020.
To entice new sellers utilize the platform to reach customers, eBay will waive 100% of eBay Store fees at the Basic subscription tier and 50% of fees for businesses to use Promoted Listings to advertise their products. Total incentive for each seller can be as high as US$1,000.
eBay is providing free access to product Listing Tools worth up to $700 with full access to Viewider, enabling easy product information migration from their existing online selling channels. Those in the Automotive category will be entitled to additional listing assistance to map their items to eBay’s Master Vehicle List, enhancing visibility through eBay’s fitment finder.
Each business owner with more than 100 products on eBay will also be assigned a dedicated account manager for personalized guidance and consultation to ensure they make the most of their online store.
SMEs who have an existing business but do not have an eBay store are eligible to apply for this program. This includes large and small businesses across the value chain — from manufacturers to dealers to retailers.
