eBayUK will be hosting both in person and virtual events in January in partnership with Small Business Britain with an eye toward helping eBay sellers grow their businesses in 2023.
2022 was a testing time for businesses of all sizes. But with the start of 2023 comes the opportunity to reset and prepare for the year ahead. To help you maximise all that eBay has to offer and support you to smash your business goals, we’ve put together a seller-centric schedule of in-person and virtual events.
