eBay to Push for Leadership in Mobile Commerce
March 29, 2013,
SAN JOSE, Calif.-eBay said it has initiated strategies that are intended to put the company at the forefront of connecting consumers and retailers through mobile technologies.
In a meeting with members of the financial community, the company said its goal is to enable $300 billion in global commerce by 2015, up from $175 billion last year. It is focusing on meeting that goal by driving growth in its core Marketplaces, PayPal and GSI Commerce businesses, and by leveraging its mobile-commerce and other commerce technologies to bring about new experiences for consumers and retailers.
The company defined enabled commerce volume as the total commerce volume and payment volume across all three of its business units. Achieving the $300 billion enabled-commerce goal will propel eBay's revenues up 50 percent over the next three years, to $21.5 billion, the company said.
