eBay Inc. is opening up to third parties to integrate applications directly onto its site. This move will give developers unprecedented access to eBayâ€™s community of professional sellers, creating more opportunities for developers to market their tools and giving sellers a wider variety of sales optimization applications.
Developers interested in building applications on eBay.com will be required to meet site standards for trusted buying and selling experiences. Once approved, developers have an opportunity for their applications to be discovered by business sellers on eBay.com, and will be in a position to monetize their application with subscription-based revenue.
