eBay and Stockpile have teamed up to make it easier than ever to access the US stock market. With the launch of Stockpile gift cards on eBay’s US marketplace, eBay becomes one of the first e-commerce companies to offer this new category of digital gift cards for stock.
Stockpile makes it easy and affordable for anyone to be able to buy, give, and own stock. eBay customers can now purchase Stockpile e-gift cards on the eBay marketplace via credit card or PayPal and have them instantly sent to an email address for redemption on stockpile.com. Some of the e-gift cards for stock that are now available on eBay include eBay, ETFs for gold or the S&P 500 and a “choose your own stock” card that is good for any stock on Stockpile.com. The current cards come in $25, $50 and $100 denominations and are good for fractional shares of real stock. Stock can be sold through Stockpile for just 99 cents.
“We’re proud to be one of the first eCommerce companies in the nation to offer gift cards for stock, a new category for eBay,” said Wafa Dahel, General Manager for Gift Cards at eBay. “This innovative and unique gifting idea of stock speaks volume to what eBay is about – smart, fun and engaging with our customers.”
“Stockpile is committed to making it easy, affordable and fun to own stock,” said Dan Schatt, Stockpile’s Chief Commercial Officer. “We’re thrilled to be working with eBay to make the stock market much more accessible.”
