The company said results reflected “excellent growth” at PayPal and StubHub, and improvement in growth rates in the core eBay business, as well as positive effects from currency.

The Marketplaces unit saw revenue grow 15 percent, with net transaction revenue up 17 percent. Gross merchandise value was $14.2 billion, up 24 percent from a year ago.
