Sellers on the site number over 1.6 million in the quarter. And buyers on the site increased to 24 million. The stock had a strong initial offering last year but has struggled since then, still trading lower than its starting price.

Investors seem happy with the holiday season that showed the company has staying power. And mobile sales on the site continue to be a major driving force in transactions.

Projected sales and profit was good today also. The company hopes to continue to grow and draw in both new sellers and new buyers.
