Selection of Purple Tuesday Sector Partners

Purple Tuesday is important to eBay because our purpose as a business is to create economic opportunity for all, and accessibility is a fundamental pillar of that. We’ve taken great strides over the past 10 years or so at eBay, but as technology and the needs of our customers change, so must we. There is always room for improvement and through partnering with Purple we’re committing to continually adapting and evolving our site as we progress on this journey with them. We know that small changes can make a world of difference to people with a disability who use our platform, and we would encourage any retailers with an online presence especially to do the same.
