Our eBay Pioneer Award recognises the longstanding, upstanding sellers that have been there every step of the way - taking advantage of all that eBay has to offer, to be the star of their own real-life success stories. If you’ve been selling for over 10 years, with a roll call of achievements in that time, apply for our eBay Pioneer Award!
