eBay is showing off its new X.commerce open platform, intended to enable merchants to get on board with mobile payments rather than compete with them.
Facebook amps up its social shopping efforts with eBay's 850,000 developers.
Users of the online payment system have reported a slew of problems early today, which the company has acknowledged on Twitter.
The online auctioneer holds steady, beating Wall Street expectations and focusing on mobile commerce to keep things going.
Company manages to meet Wall Street's expectations and surpass them thanks to boosts from PayPal, other subsidiaries, and a strong holiday season.
Company says location-based offers and broad mobile accessibility will be features of the new platform, which won't require merchants to adopt new infrastructure or buy new terminals.
