From the Paper:

"Another major advantage of eBay is the fact that they offer the localized sites on a global scale. The system literally has multiple opportunities to buy or sells either a large-scale auction or a smaller auction. Just the number of members and the number of goods and services entail an enormous amount of planning for the sites in multiple countries. These localized 'mini-eBay's' are just as well managed as the larger global site."
