eBay, the global commerce platform and a mobile commerce leader, today announced the launch of new Spanish- and Portuguese-language versions of eBay.com to better serve customers across Latin America.
More than 2 million people in Latin America already shop eBay in English and U.S. dollars. Now, when these customers visit eBay, they will see localized shopping experiences in Spanish or Portuguese – online and on eBay mobile. This is the first time eBay has offered in-language, tailored experiences to consumers in Latin America, and shoppers will be able to:
- Search, browse and experience a world of selection and great value for the items they need and love … in their preferred language
- View local promotions and deals tailored specifically to their markets
- See local currencies
- And shop confidently with the knowledge that eBay has them covered
“Over the past year, eBay has started to build a presence in Latin America, partnering with PayPal on a variety of efforts, and understanding what matters most to shoppers in the region,” said Wendy Jones, vice president of global expansion and cross border trade for eBay. “Latin America is one of the fastest-growing commerce markets, and we are innovating the eBay experience for our customers there, delivering more relevant, engaging experiences – in their local language and currency – to better enable them to shop the world.”
The launch of a localized eBay in Latin America marks the next step in the company’s ambitious, multi-year journey to accelerate geographic expansion and cross-border trade in BRIC and emerging markets. In 2012, eBay launched the first of its localized experiences in Russia, the eBay Moda fashion mobile app, which was translated into Russian with currency conversion in rubles. In April 2013, eBay launched the Russian version of eBay.com, enabling Russian consumers to access eBay’s global inventory of more than 250 million listings in their local language and currency. And, in September 2013, eBay rolled out the first of its localized experiences in Latin America, with the Portuguese-language eBay Moda fashion mobile app.
To capitalize on projected smart phone growth, and ensure consumers in Latin America are able to shop at the moment inspiration strikes, eBay also announced the launch of its core eBay mobile app in Brazilian Portuguese. The eBay mobile app has been available in Spanish for some time, and is now available in seven languages around the world.
In addition, eBay’s global shipping program recently expanded to Brazil, helping meet the expectations of consumers there for fast, reliable and cost-effective shipping, The program, already available to Mexico and 52 other countries around the world, makes an international purchase feel more like a domestic transaction. When eBay customers in Mexico or Brazil purchase an item from a merchant in the U.S. who is enrolled in the program, they will see and pay the all-in cost of the item, including taxes and duties. GSP aims to eliminate the surprises that can occur in international ecommerce.
The launch of eBay in Latin America represents a continued commitment to connect shoppers in Central and South America to the things they need and love, and to deliver the selection, value and experiences that consumers expect.
eBay (Nasdaq:EBAY) delivers one of the world's largest online marketplaces to customers via any connected device, connecting people with the things they need and love. With 145 million active buyers globally, eBay is one of the world's largest online marketplaces, where practically anyone can buy and sell practically anything. Founded in 1995, eBay connects a diverse and passionate community of individual buyers and sellers, as well as small businesses. Their collective impact on ecommerce is staggering, and more than 650 million items are listed on eBay.

The debate isn't around the obvious; of course, IT performance metrics like website load time influence business metrics such as conversions and revenue. Rather, this presentation will explore various data analysis concepts to understand how, and how not to, assert such correlations. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Leo Vasiliou, Director of Web Performance Engineering at Catchpoint Sys...

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.

In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busine...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his general session at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore...

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, introduced the technologies required for implementing these idea...
