Sure, gadgets can be social. Did you also know they can make money? eBay has built the next generation of our API platform using the gadgets specification, allowing our marketplace to open up even further to developers. Our open e-commerce platform offers a huge market opportunity of over 84 million active buyers and sellers looking for new and better ways to do business. This latest opportunity allows developers looking to make money to embed their selling management apps directly on eBay.com, where hundreds of thousands of sellers currently manage – and pay for – tools for their online business.
Join Farhang Kassaei from eBay’s Platform Architecture team and David Glazer, Director of Engineering at Google and member of the OpenSocial Foundation Board, to learn how eBay Selling Manager Applications support solutions developed using open standard gadgets specification, and what you need to begin participating in our exciting beta.
