Daniel became business lead of eBay Express in Germany. eBay Express is a marketplace, which is focussing on new products, sold by businesses and for fixed prices only. eBay Express offered a revolutionary search and finding technology and an unlimited warranty for buyers.
eBay Express offered bulk payment for multiple items purchased from multiple merchants, ELV and
credit card payments in a checkout, which was designed and developed by eBay Express and is now used by other marketplaces in similar fashion. eBay ended the eBay Express experiment in 2008 and
integrated most of the eBay Express features into the regular eBay platform.

Daniel joined eBay in Germany to head up the Luxury Goods section and to establish a business for high-value goods such as watches, gems and jewelry at eBay. Later Daniel headed up the Consumer Electronics Group and the Collectibles Group at eBay as well.
During his time at the eBay Inc. Daniel invented the art of „Find-ability“ which describes the structuring of inventory and products in a way which rebuilds
the offline shopping behaviour of the consumer and combines it with the technological possibilities of the web. Daniel is a well-recognised expert on „Find-ability“ and consulting to eBay countries and subsidiaries around the globe.
