| eBay engages in global commerce through its Marketplace platforms which connect buyers and sellers. The platforms include Co.'s online marketplace located at www.ebay.com and its localized counterparts, including off-platform businesses in Japan and Turkey, as well as suite of mobile apps. Co.'s platforms are accessible through an online experience, iOS and Android mobile devices and its application programming interfaces. Co. provides eBay Money Back Guarantee, which allows buyers to receive their money back if the item they ordered does not arrive, is faulty or damaged or does not match the listing. Co. also provides Authenticity Guarantee, which is an independent authentication service. We show 58 historical shares outstanding datapoints in our EBAY shares outstanding history coverage, used to compute EBAY market cap on those dates.|
Understanding the changing numbers of shares outstanding, the changing
share price, and the resulting changing eBay market cap history over the course of time is important for investors
interested in comparing eBay's market cap history versus its peers.
Many "beginner" or "novice" investors will look at one stock trading at a price of $10 per share and another trading at
a price of $20 per share and think the latter company is worth twice as much. Of course, that is a completely meaningless comparison without also knowing how many shares outstanding there are for each of the two companies,
and then calculating their respective market caps. Comparing the share price of eBay versus a peer is one thing; comparing
eBay market cap versus a peer is a completely different story.
Furthermore, via fluctuation both in per-share price and in the number of shares outstanding (via issuance of new shares over time, the repurchase of existing shares),
the market cap for a company like eBay can fluctuate over the course of history.
With this page we aim to empower investors researching eBay by allowing them to research the eBay market cap history.
