13:03 EDTEBAYeBay confirms launch of promoted listings service
eBay confirmed via a blog post earlier that it is "launching a new service that challenges standard advertising models, and applies new levels of ROI rigor to guarantee the effectiveness of our advertising for our customers." It stated, "The new service, which we call promoted listings, will help sellers with an eBay Stores subscription increase their visibility and sales – and sellers will only pay when an item is purchased after a click on their promoted listing ad. This new model – cost-per-sale – purposefully diverges from the more traditional cost-per-click ad model, and is one of the first examples of how eBay is developing new advertising models and products that allow our sellers – and us – to win in the commerce space."

17:36 EDTEBAYTwitter announces full launch of objective-based ad service
In a company blog post, Twitter (TWTR) stated, "Last year, we launched a... way for advertisers to create and optimize their ad campaigns, and only pay for the actions that are aligned with their marketing objectives. After seeing strong results in beta, we’re excited to offer objective-based campaigns, reports and pricing to all advertisers globally, starting today." Based on the beta test of the service, Twitter claims that eBay (EBAY) was able to drive a 59% quarter-over-quarter decrease in average paid cost per link click, while Tableau (DATA) reduced its cost per link click by over 40% quarter-over-quarter. Twitter went on to say, "When creating a new campaign, you can select from one of six objectives -- and our customized workflow will help you choose the best ad format. For example, if you want to drive traffic to your brand’s website, you can select a website clicks or conversions campaign... You’ll only be charged when a user clicks on a link to your website -- all other engagements, like a favorite or a retweet, are free. You’ll never pay for actions that aren’t relevant to your goal."

12:29 EDTEBAYPayPal to pay $25M to settle CFPB charges of deceptive advertising
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau announced earlier that it is filing a complaint and a proposed consent order against PayPal (PYPL) for illegally signing up and billing tens of thousands of consumers for its online credit product, PayPal Credit. The Bureau alleges that PayPal, which is scheduled to be separated from eBay (EBAY), lured in consumers to this product with deceptive advertising, signed up people without them knowing it, and then mishandled billing disputes when they arose. Under the CFPB's proposed order, PayPal would return the $15M that it illegally took from consumers and it would pay a $10M penalty for its wrongful actions.

Pacific Crest analyst Josh Beck shifted his preference to MasterCard (MA) from Visa (V) and upgraded the stock to Overweight from Sector Weight. Beck believes interchange legislation in Europe may have an unintended consequence of benefiting global open-loop payment networks, favoring both MasterCard and Visa. The changes are also positive for eBay's (EBAY) PayPal and mixed for American Express (AXP), Beck tells investors today in a research note. He points out his preference for MasterCard relative to Visa follows the latter company's outperformance over the past year. Beck has a $110 price target for MasterCard shares. The stock closed yesterday down 14c to $93.08.
