We Empower Small Sellers
Our companies enable individuals and casual sellers, entrepreneurs, creators, makers and small businesses of all types to sell goods to buyers from all over the world. Our model of Internet powered commerce has led to one of the greatest expansions of creative expression and entrepreneurial growth in human history. By enabling millions of sellers around the world to build their business or make money from selling items they no longer need using our innovative and digital technologies, we are committed to providing a safe, secure and convenient location for e-commerce, economic activity and the empowerment of micro, small and medium sized businesses across the globe.
The Coalition brings together third-party marketplaces and e-commerce facilitators to share the benefits that they bring to US consumers, individual sellers and micro, small and medium sized businesses. Member companies will help to educate policymakers on the benefits of our e-commerce business models while also working collaboratively with policymakers to find thoughtful solutions to consumer protection, competition and economic development issues impacting e-commerce. Together we strive to support policy initiatives which favor business growth, support entrepreneurship and digital innovation and ensure a safe, secure, sustainable, and convenient shopping experience for consumers.
Our coalition comprises companies that operate third party marketplaces and those that help to facilitate e-commerce. Third party marketplaces are spaces where private individuals and business sellers can create their individual digital shopfronts from which both individuals and business customers can purchase goods. e-commerce facilitators provide e-commerce services to help sellers and retailers grow and scale their businesses allowing them to focus on what matters growing their business.
