eBay UK Celebrated Its 15th Birthday in Aug

As the original eBay.com founded in California by Pierre Omidyar in 1995 celebrates its 19th birthday, the UK version marked its 15th some ten days ago. 

This means that it took eBay almost exactly four years to expand from the United States to the United Kingdom. By then eBay USA had already started charging a fee for insertion. 

And since the early days until today, 19 million Brits visit eBay UK every month, more than a third of the country's population. 

I can't remember when eBay Malaysia was established but I believe it has been 10 years, plus minus. Wow, that's a long time ago!
