“Our Seller Community is the heart of everything we do. You drive our identity and purpose, and without you, we don’t succeed. To celebrate the lifeblood of eBay, and recognize National Small Business Week, we’re launching the SHINE Awards for Small Business for the third year in a row. The awards are eBay's opportunity to shine a light on our vibrant community of sellers. Sellers are the essence of who we are, and my favorite part of the year is celebrating their personal stories.”
These words from VP of B2C Selling and Global Trust Bob Kupbens perfectly sum up how we at eBay feel about sellers—and why we celebrate them with the annual SHINE Awards for Small Business.
The inaugural SHINE Awards for Small Business were launched in 2016 to highlight and recognize the role sellers play in powering our marketplace. As eBay’s CEO Devin Wening has said, “The entrepreneurs who grow their businesses, support their families and connect to communities on our platform are the lifeblood of eBay.”
In the two years we’ve held the awards, we’ve received inspiring entries from eBay sellers across the nation who shared their small business stories and told us how eBay helped them pursue their dreams. Each year, we select a number of finalists and then ask the community to vote for the sellers they think are making a difference. Then, we name one grand prize winner and five category winners who truly exemplify what it means to grow a best-in-class business on eBay.
Do you have what it takes? The application period for the 2018 SHINE Awards for Small Business is now open. We’re looking for shining examples of our community members who have a passion for selling on eBay. If you’re a U.S. eBay seller, you could win $10,000, a VIP trip to eBay’s Open seller celebration, a 1-year Anchor Store subscription, and much more!
This year we’re looking for rockstar sellers in the following categories:
Applications will be accepted April 26-May 10, 2018 at on the Shine Awards website. A judging committee will then narrow the field to three finalists in each of the five categories.
From July 2-July 18, 2018, we’ll be asking you, our community of sellers, to vote for the seller who most inspires you. Your votes will help us determine the most deserving winners among the 15 finalists. Finally, we’ll celebrate our finalists and announce the winners at this year’s eBay Open, July 24-26 in Las Vegas!
