EBay is bringing two programs to Baton Rouge: one that trains local small businesses how to better sell products online, the other involving hiring about 40 people to work from home as customer service representatives.

“This is just a start,” said Devin Wenig, president and CEO of eBay. “We’ll call it eBay South in Baton Rouge.”

Baton Rouge is the fourth U.S. city to be selected for eBay’s Retail Revival program, which launched a year ago in Akron, Ohio. The 12-month program gives participating businesses free comprehensive training, one-on-one coaching from an eBay customer service team, an eBay premium store subscription and promotional support.
