The Redwood City, California-based e-commerce company said revenue for the quarter rose to $8.6 million from $400,000 in the same quarter last year, though the net loss widened to $26.9 million, or 54 cents a share, from $2.4 million, or 42 cents. Before special items, the company lost $13.1 million, or 19 cents a share, compared with $2.0 million, or 7 cents.
