Organization Structure
PeSA is incorporated as a non-profit corporation to reflect our focus on education and guidance for eBay sellers and the eBay marketplace as a whole. Our pro-active and constructive approach to improving the eBay marketplace for both buyers and sellers (see our news section) has earned PeSA respect and recognition by Wall Street, the press, top eBay sellers and eBay management alike, many of whom attend our educational summits, which are open to the public.

To afford our organization the maximum flexibility with regards to promoting and endorsing ecommerce service providers and best-practices, advocating industry and political interests, and funding the organization and educational summits, PeSA has not applied for 501(c) non-profit status. Our incorporation as a non-profit corporation was established in 2005 and is symbolic of our mission.

It is PeSA's preference for our memmbers to MAKE MONEY by belonging to our organization and PeSA's proprietary marketing programs and valuable partner offers have allowed numerous members to earn money above their annual dues commitment, a trend-setting model we are proud of and hope to continue for the future.
