eBay Inc was the next company that she joined. Though eBay seems to have already lost the e-commerce war in India, it looks like at least, it was previously among the e-commerce biggies. There she headed the Business Seller Programs and CS. She was a member of the UK Operating Management Team of the e-commerce portal and was prominently promoted on eBay, owing to her managerial and business skills. After 1 year, Suchi eventually emerged as the Director & Member of the Executive Management Team at Skype, which was then a subsidiary of the Pierre Omidyar-founded eBay Inc company.

She examined product and marketing, which included planning, product/UI design, payments, brand management, advertising channels, and more.

She served at the company for over two years and left the job in August 2011.
