According to Reuters, online retailer eBay Inc. still sees Russia as a top priority in emerging markets, Vice President Wendy Jones told a news conference on Wednesday.
"We said three years ago that the Russian marketplace is eBay's top priority in emerging markets. It was true then and it is true now," Jones told a news conference dedicated to the signing of a memorandum with Russian Post.
According to an article in Bloomberg BusinessWeek, eBay doubled its buyer base in Russia last year, Jones said, without disclosing the sales volume for 2013. Russians bought $425 million of goods on EBay in 2012 and are now placing about 90,000 orders each day, she said.
