By the time the world’s largest online retailer, eBay, launched its online shopping service in the United States in 2008, it was already the second-largest online retailer in the world.
That year, it surpassed Amazon.com to become the world leader in online sales.
By the summer of 2011, it had become the fourth-largest retailer in terms of merchandise volume, after Walmart and Amazon.
And in 2012, eBay was overtaken by Amazon.
In 2015, it became the largest online marketplace, according to data compiled by e-commerce research firm Zillow.
That was followed by Amazon, followed by eBay, according the data.
eBay has become the leader in e-tailers.
It’s not surprising, then, that the company is in a race to overtake Amazon, and it is aggressively trying to do so.
In the second quarter of this year, eBay’s revenue rose 12% year over year.
Its operating income increased 5%, its adjusted EBITDA increased 15%, and its net income increased 17%.
It also posted record revenue for the quarter.
But while the company’s stock price has been soaring lately, the rise of eBay has been much steeper than many expected.
And it has been driven in part by the growth of online shopping, which grew at a robust rate over the past several years.
Ebay is the fourth largest e-retailer in the US, according a new report from the research firm NPD Group.
It was the second largest in Europe, after Amazon, in 2016, according data from research firm Strategy Analytics.
eBay was also the fifth-largest e-seller in the U.S. in 2016.
According to NPD’s annual report, online shopping is the fifth largest category of retail revenue for eBay in the fourth quarter of 2017, and will be the sixth-largest category of revenue for all retailers in 2018.
But, NPD said, eBay will be one of the last major retailers to see its sales rise.
For instance, NPS, which tracks retail transactions, reported that online shopping accounts for only about 5% of the total sales for the entire year.
It is not the only one.
In 2018, online retail sales account for about 6% of total retail sales.
The rise in online shopping has had a lot to do with Amazon’s rise.
According to NPS data, online shoppers spent about 10% more on merchandise purchases in 2017 than in 2016 and 18% more in 2018 compared to last year.
But Amazon’s online sales are growing faster than the online shopping market.
Amazon reported an operating profit of $5.5 billion in the first quarter of 2018, compared to $3.4 billion in 2016 — an increase of more than 300%.NPD said that Amazon has also taken a lot of market share from traditional brick-and-mortar retailers like Target and Best Buy.
According the report, Amazon is now responsible for more than a quarter of all online shopping in the country.
While eBay is not yet a household name in the way that Walmart is, its stock price is rising fast.
Last year, the stock price of eBay rose by nearly 25%.
Last year the company saw its market capitalization increase by more than 6% to $1.9 billion.
And according to NPG, eBay is now the second biggest stock in the company after Amazon.
But eBay is losing ground to Amazon, which has overtaken it in terms in terms that are comparable to what it was in 2012.
In 2018, the total number of online sales for eBay fell from 8.9 million to 7.8 million, according NPD.
That’s down from the 8.5 million sales in 2017, when the company reported a $1 billion profit.
The number of total sales dropped by 11% to 5.5 trillion.
That is equivalent to $2.5 for every American.
And Amazon, by contrast, reported a profit of more $12.2 billion in 2018, according research firm IDC.
Amazon has been gaining market share over the last few years, which means that the number of sales it generates is likely to rise in the coming years as it competes with online retailers.
For example, in the past 12 months, Amazon has increased its average revenue per seller to $7.39 from $5 in 2018 — a $5 increase in price per item.
That has led to the average revenue of the company for the past year to nearly $24 billion.
