eBay Stores enables sellers to show all of their listings and to describe their respective businesses through customized pages. eBay Stores provide useful tools for sellers to build, manage, promote, and track their business. Store Inventory Format listings allow sellers to list items at a lower insertion fee and higher final value fee than regular auction and fixed price listings, for a minimum 30-day listing duration. As of December 31, 2006, there were nearly 600,000 online storefronts established by users in locations around the world.
