Last week in New York, we got a chance to sync up with the X.commerce team, which is a new division of eBay. X.commerce includes eBay, PayPal and Magento and will soon be launching a new platform for merchants, payments and beyond. The launch of the platform will take place at the X.commerce Innovate Developer Conference in San Francisco on October 12th and 13th.
Leading up to that launch, the X.commerce team has been on a national tour in the X.commerce bus. The bus has stopped in a number of cities over the past month or so, and we were excited to be working with X.commerce on our New York mixer event at General Assembly. The X.commerce bus will be joining Tech Cocktail in Seattle and Boulder in October, so if you are in either of those cities please stay tuned.
I got a chance to catch-up with the X.commerce eXpress tour bus to get the lowdown on X.commerce and a look inside the shiny red bus. You may be surprised to find out who X.commerce purchased the bus from. Watch the video tour of the X.commerce eXpress bus (below).
