EBay Recognizes Canadian Excellence In ECommerce

Stocks in this article: EBAY

eBay Canada's 2012 International-preneur of the Year: Bernd Eisele, Williams Lake, BC (eBay ID: xenalook)

Bernd Eisele turned to eBay full-time after his motor vehicle arbitrage business was impacted by the recent economic downturn. Looking to find a niche market, and one that did not compete solely on price-point, Bernd decided to revive his childhood hobby of building and flying model airplanes. Against the objections of friends and family around him, Bernd and his partner Xena sought out miniature gas model engines and soon collected enough inventory to build a store. Bernd receives an overwhelming response from buyers around the world, who share his passion for model airplanes. In fact, approximately 50 per cent of sales transactions take place beyond the borders of North America, in countries such as Australia, Pakistan, Indonesia and United Kingdom.
