eBay Advertising launches Australia’s largest private marketplace

Jul 16th, 2013 | By | Category: Ad Operations

eBay Advertising Australia has today created the country’s largest private market place, via a partnership with Rubicon Project. The newly created marketplace gives brands access to over 7M unique visitors a month and the ability to programmatically trade on over a billion ad impressions.

Technology is revolutionising the way people shop, and eBay is shaping the future of commerce. In Australia, eBay reaches 70 per cent of Australian online shoppers every month connecting them with the products they need and love. For selected advertisers this will mean the ability to bid on advertising impressions in real-time, combining the company’s huge repository of anonymous first party data with premium inventory at scale.

JJ Eastwood, General Manager eBay Advertising, Australia & New Zealand explains, “I believe that the future of digital advertising sits firmly with programmatic trading. It’s simply a more intelligent way to purchase digital media as every impression is bought and sold more cost effectively, and as a result the most relevant messages reach the right people, at the right time.”

“The partnership with Rubicon Project will provide marketers access to programmatically buy eBay’s advertising in Australia. Having the ability to access and evaluate inventory in real-time will create efficiencies and certainly increase ROI.”

Kaylie Smith, Managing Director, APAC, Rubicon Project, continues, “We are thrilled that eBay Advertising is now adding Australia to their list of major private marketplaces around the world, affording trading desks and the 140,000 advertisers on REVV around the world the prized ability to advertise to the exact segments they are most interested in.”
