No primary category set

eBay have announced figures for the first quarter of 2007, dubbed “a very strong one” by Meg Whitman. Net revenues were US$1.77 billion, 27% up the same period last year. 588 million items were listed over the three months, up 13 million from Q1 2006. Paypal’s revenues grew 31% to US$439million, and the total number of accounts increased 36% to 143 million worldwide. Skype revenues grew 123% to US$79 million, with registered users up 107% to 196 million worldwide. In a rare moment of pro-eBay feeling, Blogging Stocks comment that reports of their death are greatly exaggerated.

  1. I’ve never had a problem with eBay making all this money and being successful. IMO, they could actually be more successful if they just partnered with their sellers instead of treating them like sheep.
