What is the Purpose of eBay's Application Logos

Let your everyone know that your business integrates with eBay

The goal of these requirements is to create a consistent front to everyone—customers, prospects, vendors, the media, or investors—throughout the course of business. This unified approach will help:

  • Build a consistent visual image that lets your customers know they are accessing a trusted, vibrant, global marketplace through an application that was developed by a member of the eBay Developers Program.
  • Gain market impact and recognition for the program and its participants through consistent presentation.
  • Protect eBay's trademarks.
