    a) by setting up own website
    b) via E Bay (this is written as eBay)

    People sell their products either by "setting up their own website" or "on eBay".

    a) for looking for products
    b) for looking for people

    I would simply say that they are "searching for business opportunities on the internet". They are not looking for products or people!

    This is definitely not proper English. She should say "the client found my details on the (inter)net", or "my client found me on the net".
