Global Sources, eBay enter alliance

Published on .

Shanghai – Global Sources announced last week that it has formed an alliance with eBay to offer a new service called Global Sources Direct. The service is intended to create more sourcing opportunities in China and around the world for eBay's so-called PowerSellers—sellers who sustain a consistently high volume of monthly sales and a 98% or better positive feedback by other eBay users. Through the service, which is expected to be available later this year, Global Sources will provide its clients with the opportunity to market their merchandise directly to individuals and businesses in China through eBay EachNet, eBay’s Web site in China. Global Sources Chairman-CEO Merle A. Hinrichs said in a statement: "We expect our eBay relationship to contribute to Global Sources’ goal of giving our suppliers as many quality ways to advertise, market and sell their products as possible."
