eBay CBT in Malaysia

eBay CBT in Malaysia may still be in its infancy stage. But the possibilities to penetrate key global markets such as United States, United Kingdom, Australia and Germany are endless.

With that in mind, eBay was proud to conduct its very first Selling Bootcamp in April 2019 held in Kuala Lumpur recently.

The 3-part workshop, held over the course of 3 months, was designed with one goal in mind – To train participants for the eBay Seller Management Programme.

The Bootcamp was just one of eBay’s initiatives to help our sellers achieve financial success through eBay’s selling platform.

eBay’s very own Cross Border Trade (CBT) Strategic Operations Manager, personally took it upon herself to conduct the workshop for the carefully selected participants. The attendees comprised of small businesses and entrepreneurs seeking new and global sales channels in the fast-growing e-Commerce sector.

In true eBay style, we made the knowledge-sharing sessions fun with success stories, activities and insider tips & tricks plus exciting prizes for a few lucky participants.

The 3 lucky sellers who portrayed the most outstanding performance and commitment joined the eBay Account Management Programme and received 6 months subscription to an eBay Integrated Listing Tool.

But of course, the most valuable prize was the priceless knowledge gained on how to kickstart their eBay’s business and achieve success, the right way!
