eBay was founded by Pierre Omidyar in 1995 and became a notable success story of the dot-com bubble.
- Founded: September 3, 1995
The company officially changed the name of its service from AuctionWeb to eBay in September 1997, after Echo Bay Technology Group, Omidyar’s consulting firm.
In September 2012, eBay introduced a new logo using a thinner variation of the Univers typeface, installed on the website on October 10, 2012. It replaced the thicker Univers logo that had been used since eBay’s inception in 1995. An all red eBay logo with the same type set was also introduced to be used temporarily for various holidays.
