How did eBay’s Q1 results compare to other ecommerce companies?

While Amazon doesn’t report its earnings until later this week, the company’s Q4 2018 report barely beat estimates. In contrast, eBay’s Q1 profits also slightly exceeded predictions. During eBay’s Q1 revenue report, Wenig wrote about the difference between eBay and Amazon.

‘Unlike other digital commerce businesses, we don’t compete with our sellers and we refuse to compromise the shopping experience to push 'house brands' and irrelevant posts. Millions of small businesses and consumers sell only on eBay. I believe it’s because of our purpose and policies – this matters to customers,’ said Wenig.
