Etsy and eBay

Online e-commerce platforms allow us to sell and buy goods from each other, rather than going through traditional retailers.

Online e-commerce platforms allow us to sell and buy goods from each other, rather than going through traditional retailers. The growth of e-commerce platforms like eBay and Etsy hasn’t just made it easier to shift things you don’t have space for, they have enabled a huge industry of small sellers to connect with a global customer base, creating jobs and growth.

Without Section 230, platforms would be held liable for everything sold through them. This would limit these platforms from serving small sellers and consumers make it harder for us to sell our stuff on these platforms. This could drive up prices, reduce consumer choice, and undermine small businesses across the country.
