EBay reported net income of $626 million, or 51 cents per share, for the first quarter ended March 31 compared with a loss of $2.33 billion, or $1.82 per share, a year earlier.

Net revenue rose to $4.45 billion from $4.26 billion.

Revenue from the company's payments business rose about 14 percent to $2.11 billion.
