eBay launched a joint program with Oodle in which listings posted on eBay Classifieds will appear on Oodle, and vice versa. eBay Classifieds is a free, local marketplace to trade goods and services. Oodle has over 14 million unique monthly users across its network that includes the Oodle Marketplace and the Facebook Marketplace.

Martin Herbst, General Manager of eBay Classifieds U.S., said, "Through this program, we are creating one of the largest footprints on the Web for online classified advertising. We're proud to work with Oodle in this initiative to enhance visibility for our sellers and provide even more ways to bring buyers and sellers together in their local communities."
