eBay got to Russia

The world's largest online auction site eBay announced the appointment of July 2, the head of the eBay office in Russia (eBay Marketplaces), the former general director of the Russian Google Vladimir Dolgov.

This was told by a source close to the companies, and confirmed in Google. Sources said in mid-May that eBay was going to open a Russian office and had already found a candidate for the post of its head. The eBay headquarters then declined to comment on this issue.

Vladimir Dolgov headed the Russian representative office of Google for six years, being responsible for operations. Prior to joining Google in 2005, he served as CEO of the largest online store in Russia, Ozon. The eBay company has been operating in the Russian market since March 2010, when the Russified eBay.ru website was launched. Now, an online auction with the advent of a representative office will begin full-fledged work in Russia.

In late March, Kommersant reported that PayPal, controlled by eBay, could enter the Russian market by entering into a strategic partnership with Russian Post, which plans to issue prepaid cards tied to the PayPal e-wallet. This will allow you to withdraw funds from the accounts of the payment system, which means that it will fundamentally simplify the Russians trading on eBay and other online stores.

After PayPal allowed accepting funds into the Russian electronic wallet from October 2011, it became possible to sell goods on eBay. Then PayPal allowed the Russians to withdraw funds, but only to an account with a US bank. According to Comscore, the eBay global audience in February 2012 amounted to 237,3 million unique visitors (plus 12% per year). In Russia, the eBay audience for the year decreased by 8%, to 3,19 million unique visitors. It is reported by Kommersant.
