About Us

We are the biggest e-commerce platform in Latin America, connecting buyers and retailers from over 16 countries. We are also an IT company and developers from all over the world make use of our Open Platform to create applications that help sellers and buyers improve they experience.

    Our ecosystem divides in different business units:

  • Our Marketplace is the core product, where people can buy and sell almost any product, vehicle, real estate or service.
  • MercadoPago is a service that lets you send and receive money online for purchases on MercadoLibre or in any other commerce that integrates with the platform. If you’re a collector or want to develop a payment-related app, head over to MercadoPago Developers.
  • MercadoShops is a platform that helps you build and administrate your own online store.
  • Mercado Publicidad is our advertising product, offering pay-per-click text ads that appear during the site searches and on product pages.
