Founded in 1999 in a Rotherham garage by Paul Cusack, it defied the dotcom implosion and now serves 1.5m registered customers with more than 100,000 products. These range from computer technology and LCD TVs to MP3 players, gaming and home electronics. Ebuyer is backed by Vida Capital Partners, which invested £19m in 2005 to fund a 280,000sq ft Yorkshire distribution centre. 2007 sales increased to £212.5m.
