This week's featured seller is Schad VanLeeuwen. You could say Schad VanLeeuwen was born with motorcycling in his blood. His grandfather was a national racing champion, and Schad grew up lending a hand in the family parts and accessories business. To help sell some of their old inventory, Schad began listing it on eBay. Soon, he’d started running his own company, Speed Addicts, out of his freshman dorm room in Santa Barbara, CA. Today, Speed Addicts boasts multiple offices, retail space in Los Angeles, and $2.4 million in annual gross revenue on eBay (more than a third of which is global sales!) Schad’s also racked up a 99.7% positive rating from more than 33,000 buyers in his eBay Store and prides himself on providing best-in-class service to customers across the globe. Check out Schad's eBay store using eBay Seller ID speedaddictcycles.

Following the 2008 economic crisis, the share of traditional EU businesses exporting outside the EU remained constant. In contrast, the share of EU eBay-enabled SMEs exporting outside the EU significantly increased over the same period. Learn more about how EU eBay-enabled SMEs were able to take advantage of increases in foreign demand post 2008 in our report: Platform-Enabled Small Businesses and Inclusive Economic Opportunities
This paper looks at the ability of small online commercial enterprises to adapt to macroeconomic changes. The analysis is based on the European Commission’s study of how companies of different sizes attempted to rebalance their export destinations in response to significant relative decrease in export opportunities within Europe due to the recent economic and financial crisis.

This week's featured seller is Bob Adams. When Bob Adams began selling goods online in 2006, his family and friends were skeptical. But with a job demanding up to five days of travel per week, he was looking for an alternative to the 9 to 5. Bob stuck with it and now owns his own online business, Better Deals 123, specializing in smart phone accessories sales. He is able to work from home and create his own schedule, and truly enjoys the flexibility of being the boss. Bob also finds time in his schedule to share his knowledge of the online retail market with others to help them find similar success. Today Better Deals123 is a still a family-owned operation that prides itself on great customer service. Check out Bob's eBay store using eBay Seller ID betterdeals123.

Meet this week's featured seller, Corey Palmer. Corey Palmer has always appreciated a great bag. She has spent years admiring, studying and buying high end hand bags and eventually realized that her skills could be utilized far beyond her own closet. Back in 2006 friends, and eventually clients, began to ask her to assist them on eBay – they wanted help buying and selling designer bags. They realized Corey had a keen eye and in-depth knowledge on bag authenticity, ensuring that clients paid fair prices and avoided knock off scams. After five short years Corey, and her husband, who helps her run the business, had a large online following on their website http://bit.ly/2hrdXFx and they decided to expand. They opened a physical store front boutique in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The two realized that their online business would allow them to locate a their physical store anywhere- “So why not make it somewhere beautiful,” explains Corey. The popular tourist destination gives them a reliable “busy season” and their online presence remains steady year round.
