In 2020, eBay partnered with Hello Alice to launch the Up & Running Grants program to help ensure today’s small businesses are here tomorrow. The $500,000 initiative selected 50 small business sellers to receive a grant package to develop their online marketplace to best reach eBay’s more than 185 million buyers located around the world.

To build on that success, eBay is dedicating another $500,000 to the annual Up & Running Grants. Hosted by Hello Alice, the program will provide another 50 small business sellers with $10,000 grants plus coaching through eBay Seller School.

Everyone who applies for the grant will also receive free access to Hello Alice’s step-by-step business guides, thousands of industry-specific business resources, and a peer-to-peer community of nearly 500,000 small business owners ready to help you succeed.

Who Qualifies?

The Up & Running Grants program is open to both new and existing eBay sellers. New sellers must have joined eBay between October 1, 2020, and July 31, 2021, and existing sellers must have active listings and have strong seller ratings. For full eligibility requirements, see the official rules.

Applications are now open until the deadline on September 3, 2021, at 6 p.m. ET!
