EBay Inc. (EBAY-Q) posted higher-than-expected earnings, helped by double-digit growth at PayPal and a modest rise in revenue at the e-commerce company's main marketplaces unit.

The company said third-quarter net profit was $431.9 million US, or 33 cents per share, from $350 million, or 27 cents per share, a year earlier.

Excluding Web telephone unit Skype, which the company sold, earnings were 40 cents per share, above the 37 cents expected by analysts, according to Thomson Reuters.

Revenue rose 1 percent to $2.25 billion, the company said, above the $2.18 billion that analysts expected.

EBay expects fourth-quarter revenue to range between $2.39 billion and $2.49 billion on adjusted earnings per share of 45 cents to 48 cents.
