Introducing the new eBay China Developers Program!

eBay's cross-border business in the Asia Pacific region has seen rapid growth in the past 3 years, and China's growth in 2009 is especially amazing!

With China's strong business growth, third-party applications and API development have been in strong demand. In the past 2 years, eBay has drawn approximately 200 new developers, 20 private solutions and a number of public API solutions. Meanwhile, in order to promote API development, eBay's Cross-border Trade team and China Development Center successfully held 2 Developer Seminars in China in 2009 and 2008.

Our experience tells us that language, time difference and service fees have been major barriers for developers in China. To more effectively help China developers grow, eBay is launching the eBay China API Developer Program in 2010 to address these issues.

Our Target

  • Build an active eBay API Developer Community for Greater China
  • Grow the number of API applications designed for cross-border trade to provide support for sellers in Greater China

Our Plan

  • Provide local engineering and consulting support for all China developers for FREE!
  • Host a Developer Seminar in Shenzhen in 2010 to focus on API development, inviting experienced developers for best practice sharing

eBay中国API开发者计划背景:

在过去的3年中,eBay亚太区跨国交易(即外贸)取得了飞速的成长,而我们的中国业务更是其中耀眼的明星。

交易量的急速上升,带给了ebay第三方开发者巨大的潜在商机,而API开发的需求也在随之大幅增加。原因是越来越多的卖家开始意识到,使用优秀的第三方应用能够帮助他们更好和更高效的经营他们的ebay业务。

2年来,CBT跨国交易业务已经吸引了近200名新开发者,2-5个公开解决方案,和近20个私有解决方案。为了更好地服务于中国的开发者,在08和09年度,CBT联合CDC成功举办了两次中国开发者研讨会。然而,对于中国的eBay开发者来说,语言、时差和服务费等问题依然是他们在开发工作中的一个重要门槛,仅仅通过每年一次的研讨会依然无法满足所有的需求。

因此,我们希望在2010年通过建立eBay中国API 开发者计划 来更好的服务于为广大中国地区的开发人员们。

我们的目标
·       建立一个活跃的开发者社区,供大中华区的开发者们更便捷地交流以及分享经验。
·       孵化更多针对跨国贸易的高质量API应用程序,以帮助中国的卖家更好地经营他们的eBay业务

我们的计划:
我们将提供本地的咨询和技术支持服务,供所有eBay中国开发者免费使用。
我们将在2010年于深圳举行一场中国开发者研讨会,向大家介绍API的开发,并邀请经验丰富的开发人员与您分享最佳实践。
