In a reaction to this report, Topeka Capital Markets and KBW released notes commenting on the data. Topeka noted that the data was positive for both firms and stated, "Based on our analysis of the overall data for 1Q14, both Amazon and eBay should exceed our estimates, for, in Amazon's case, U.S. North American revenue growth, and in eBay's case, U.S. Non-Vehicles GMV growth."

KBW's noted focused on eBay specifically and concluded with KBW analyst Sanjay Sakhrani stating, "Overall, March data from ChannelAdvisor appears to have trended better than our expectations for the Marketplaces segment, with sequential acceleration in growth from 4Q13 (vs. our estimate of a seq. decline in growth rates). Additionally, we continue to be encouraged by the acceleration in fixed price growth over the last several months."
