“I’m a huge believer in the power of eBay to help small and medium-sized businesses sell to buyers within Canada and across the globe. I love hearing stories of how eBay has enabled sellers to improve their businesses – whether it’s a larger retailer that has started exporting to one of the 190 countries that eBay serves or someone making their first online sale. These stories are what motivate me, and the rest of the Canadian team, every day.”

Outreach to Sellers
As part of his effort to get to know what eBay Canada can do better for sellers, Rob will be hosting a series of meetings with sellers to hear from them “about what’s working, what’s not, and how eBay can help.”
To get started on his mission, Rob will be at the be the eBay UpFront event coming to Toronto on May 6, 2020.
The event will cover valuable topics for new and seasoned sellers and feature updates from executives, a panel discussion with sellers, and roundtable discussions around popular topics from getting started to cross-border shipping to social media and more.
Beyond Toronto, Rob will host more seller eBay MeetUps across Canada to listen to sellers and review resources designed to make selling on eBay easier and more impactful.
Rob also promised eBay would create more frequent and convenient ways for sellers to engage with eBay.
His goal for the company is to improve how it connects with sellers to make it easier for them to access information and tell eBay what’s on their mind through webinars, online seller town halls, and podcasts.
Rob Bigler takes over from Andrea Stairs, who is moving to a new role at eBay leading marketing for eBay North America.
