The company said downloads of its suite of mobile apps expanded the overall commerce footprint, crossing 162 million since launch in the third quarter of 2008.
eBay's PayPal business revenue increased 18% to $1.5bn for the quarter with 128 million active registered accounts.

eBay president and CEO John Donahoe said that the company has registered strong first quarter, with accelerating user growth across both Marketplaces and PayPal, and with GSI enabling their retail clients to grow faster than ecommerce.
"Technology is creating a commerce revolution, and we are in the forefront with strong mobile leadership and a focus on helping retailers and brands engage consumers anytime, anywhere," Donahoe said.
The company expects net revenues to be in the range of $3.8bn to $3.9bn for the second quarter of this year.
