Along with Ebay and PayPal, of course.

The key to Ebay's success is not the pricing or the auction model, but the advertising. All the goods of a particular sort that you might be looking for, readily available in one spot, and deliverable regardless of where you are located.

Ebay cuts down the work you would normally have to do to find items to purchase on the net, and provides a "standard framework" for same.

The "standard framework" could, of course, exist without Ebay...

Make it right before you make it faster.
