Aleksei moved from Russia after the known conflict with Ukraine and has been able to set up an impressive set up in Dubai Free Zone. He deals in Japanese car parts and is very happy working with eBay as it has enabled him to create such a business despite the disruptions in his own country. Aleksei says that eBay gives him access to a huge number of customers and provides better seller support compared to other marketplaces. He thinks it’s the best platform to launch export sales because one doesn’t need a lot of money to for that. “You just need to go on eBay and start selling”.

After moving to Dubai, Aleksei had to start from scratch but managed to build a successful eBay store again. He says: “To be honest, we didn’t do anything special, we just worked our best way.”
