抗衡亚马逊,eBay推出在线商家借贷服务

近一段时间以来,电商巨头eBay公司可谓动作不断。

比如除B2C市场外,eBay公司还积极拓展B2B市场,在2016年推出了B2B平台Business Supply。而近来,又推出了一项专门服务小型卖家的Always Open计划,该服务也运营实体店面。

而本周二,彭博社又传来了有关eBay公司的最新动向。

首先,eBay宣布接受Apple Pay移动支付。而就在今年早些时候,eBay宣布将其支付处理提供商从PayPal改为Adyen。

此外,eBay还宣布将与Square建立合作伙伴关系,为在eBay平台上进行销售的商家提供融资服务,贷款上限为10万美元。据了解,Square Capital在今年第一季度累计发放贷款5万笔,同比增长35%。

而作为其主要竞争对手的亚马逊集团最早于2015年开始推出小企业贷款服务,虽然目前只局限于几个国家市场(据CNBC上月报道,该项服务有可能于近期进军中国市场),但自推出以来已经发放了30多亿美元的短期贷款。

When eBay announced that it would be accepting Apple Pay, it wasn’t the only new development for the online marketplace.

The company also revealed a partnership with Square to offer financing to companies selling on eBay, heating up competition with its rival, Amazon.

Bloomberg reported Tuesday (July 24) that eBay will begin offering merchants up to $100,000 in financing through Square Capital. The report also highlighted how eBay is working with PayPal rivals, Square and Apple Pay, following its split from PayPal in 2015. Earlier this year, eBay announced it would be shifting its payment processing needs from PayPal to Adyen.

Square Capital is likely to see a significant boost to its financing volumes. Reports said Square Capital facilitated 50,000 business loans in the first quarter of this year — a 35 percent year-over-year increase.

eBay’s entrance into small business lending follows the company’s recent push into B2B services. In 2016, eBay launched its B2B platform, Business Supply, though it has mostly continued to focus on its B2C commerce operations.

More recently, the company introduced Always Open, an initiative that focuses on smaller sellers, with eBay Stores subscriptions, that also operate a physical storefront. Businesses receive support from eBay staff, as well as enhanced brand visibility on eBay’s Always Open landing page.

On the SMB finance front, eBay rival Amazon has also been ramping up lending services to its online merchants. Amazon rolled out small business lending services in several markets in 2015. Reports from last month said the service has now facilitated more than $3 billion worth of short-term financing for SMBs.

Amazon may soon introduce its lending service in China, CNBC reported in June, citing a job opening listed on Amazon’s careers website.
