As e-commerce continues to evolve, retailers like eBay must find innovative and inspired ways to connect with and attract consumers to their brand

Direct-to-consumer retail is on the rise, as today's brands can no longer expect consumers to come to them—they have to find their customers where they already are, which increasingly means on digital interfaces.
