Through this collaboration, eBay combines its global reach and unique inventory to continue to bring a seamless experience that allows enthusiasts to access high-passion and high-value items, including exclusive-to-eBay Funko products.
“With millions of sales of Funko products on our marketplace last year, we recognize that this incredibly engaged community of collectors are already shopping on eBay.”Dawn Block, VP Collectibles, Electronics and Home at eBay
“Our collaboration with Funko to bring exclusive inventory onto our platform allows us to deliver even more of the rare collectibles these enthusiasts are coveting,” added Block.
Funko’s collection on eBay will offer enthusiasts access to rare, sought-after Funko products from iconic fandoms – the first of which is available now here. Additional drops in the series will launch later this year.
“Creating iconic products that connect fans to their passion is at the core of what we do. Collaborating with eBay allows us to broaden our reach delighting even more Funko collectors around the world.”Johanna Gepford, Senior Vice President for the Direct to Commerce business at Funko
