Export Revival

We believe one of the most meaningful ways we can make an impact is by empowering small businesses. We are driven to help local retailers use the power of technology and the global marketplace to keep their doors open, hire from their communities, live where they work, and continue to enliven their local economy.


Main Advantages of the Program

Helps train local business

Our innovative Retail Revival program helps train local business owners to sell their unique inventory in a global marketplace, while strengthening ties within their local business community.


Helps small businesses grow

Online trading helps small businesses grow. Still, not every business owner knows how to maximize what e-commerce has to offer, and that's where eBay comes in.


Online trading for growth

eBay's Global Retail Revival program helps small businesses leverage online trading for growth. The program is already up and running in the United States, Canada, UK, Russia, Israel and other countries.

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.
