2023 Star Developer Awards

eBay’s Star Developer awards celebrate the adoption of our APIs, innovation and growth. The two categories this year were:

  • Early Adopter Award
  • Rapid Growth Award

For these awards, we considered all 3rd-party developers who participate in the developers program, contribute to eBay business initiatives, use our APIs in a productive way, and bring value to eBay and our buyers and sellers.

Early Adopter Award

This year's Early Adopter Award was presented to ChannelAdvisor, a CommerceHub company. ChannelAdvisor is one of the world’s largest, most trusted commerce networks, connecting over thousand retailers and brands globally.

ChannelAdvisor has been continuously seeking ways to improve sellers’ operational efficiency and business performance by implementing eBay’s latest developments. ChannelAdvisor was fundamental in the development and early adoption of PLA via the APIs. They worked closely with us to launch the Fitment Guaranteed Program and adapted our returns handling process to streamline this as much as possible for a positive buyer experience. They have also played a crucial role in actively adopting eBay Fulfillment for their users across the supported locales. This showcases their ongoing commitment to strengthening their product to support the growth and success of their sellers on eBay.

Rapid Growth Award

The Rapid Growth Award was presented to Stendia, a company active in the Product Search & Discovery business. Stendia is a PLA partner (Google CSS, Bing).

Stendia is a Belgian based company active in the Product Search & Discovery business and a PLA partner. With its blazing fast performance, Stendia enables you to search products across major marketplaces. Stendia with its strategy and integration with APIs like Browse and Notification has shown an impressive growth YoY. We thank them for their commitment and passion in partnering with eBay.
