  3. 4. <ul><li>Ebay has had a lot of social networking aspects for a long time such as commercials, ads and other advertisements in other websites. As Ebay networks more, the number of users grow making the auctions grow, which makes eBay itself keep growing. </li></ul>

Ecommerce takes some barriers out of starting your own business or just shopping. </li></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>There are a lot of security issues in Ebay. You take a big risk by buying things from seller you don’t know and having your credit card and address put out on the internet. Ebay takes security and privacy very seriously. Ebay never asks your personal information via email, they do it in their own website which is secured and uses a lot of new software to keep hackers out. </li></ul>Ebay advises you to contact the seller, read his or her reviews, use their checklist and checkout features to make a smart buying decision. They also advise using third party options to pay such as AOL wallet and PayPal. They also offer an insurance that covers up to $10,000

An unsuspecting seller may ship the item before realizing the e-mail was forged. </li></ul>
  8. 9. <ul><li>Businesses are compiling lists of stolen goods from local authorities. This is done so eBay consumers can check to see if the goods they are buying are stolen. </li></ul><ul><li>Software is available that alerts ebay users if they are tricked into going to a spoof website such a Toolbar which is free. Use of this kind of software can eliminate eBay account hijacking. </li></ul><ul><li>eBay claims that their data shows that less than .01% of all transactions result in a confirmed case of fraud. However, eBay states that their stated fraud statistic both undercounts and over counts this statistic may not be reliable </li></ul>
  9. 10. <ul><li>eBay is a widely known and popular ecommerce website and we think it will work perfectly with our topic. We have a lot of information, and eBay gives us a perfect example. There are some downfalls to eBay, such as the frauds and security issues. But on the whole, eBay is a well established business on the internet. </li></ul>
