According to foreign media reports, eBay recently announced that it will return to the Polish e-commerce market, that is, restart the Polish site (eBay.pl). eBay plans to become one of the top three e-commerce platforms in the country, competing with No. 1 Allegro and No. 2 Amazon for market share.
According to reports, eBay entered the Polish market in 2005, but due to the loss to Allegro, it slowly ended its business in Poland, leaving only the international version of eBay website.
A few years ago, eBay tried to expand in Poland but faced obstacles due to a lack of technology, said Lorna Dunne, eBay's head of EU sales. Now, eBay has advanced technology and tools, such as machine translation and artificial intelligence, to provide Polish buyers with quality buying services. Therefore, eBay announced its return to Poland at this time.

According to data released by the First National Bank of South Africa (FNB), the current annual e-commerce transaction volume in South Africa exceeds 1 billion, and it is expected that by 2025, the e-commerce market in South Africa will exceed 400 billion rand (about 27.2 billion US dollars).
According to foreign media reports, data released by South Africa’s First National Bank (FNB) recently showed that the current local online e-commerce market transaction volume is slightly less than 200 billion rand (about 13.58 billion U.S. dollars), higher than 90 billion rand in 2019 ( approximately $6.1 billion) and 142 billion rand (approximately $9.64 billion) in 2020.
FNB said that although the e-commerce market share has been growing in the past decade, the growth rate has been slow, and the arrival of the epidemic has brought it into a stage of rapid development ahead of schedule. Before the pandemic hit the world, online spending in South Africa only accounted for 8% of total spending on credit card payments in the retail sector.
