How It Was
The Export Revival is part of the eBay global retail revival initiative. It focuses on small and medium-sized businesses around the world. Since its launch in 2018, many cities from the United States, Britain, Canada, Ireland, Israel and Russia have joined this initiative.
Currently approximately 12,000 sellers from Greece are present on eBay and together with our partners we aspire to create even more opportunities for them, by empowering SMBs to take full advantage of the digital commerce.
In March 2019, we launched the Retail Revival program in Israel, in cooperation with the Joint-Link program and the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs, to promote social and employment integration by creating an eCommerce community.
Today, entrepreneurs from three regions in Russia —Yaroslavl, Novgorod, and Udmurtia — are working to make their unique offerings better known on a global stage. Together with the local Centers of Entrepreneurship Support, eBay is helping small-to-medium business owners in these regions learn to sell online.
Situated in the heart of Bulgaria in southeastern Europe, Plovdiv has long been a meeting point of cultures, and was one of the two European Capitals of Culture for 2019. The city and region have a rich tradition of textile and food production and, more recently, electronics.
