    Payment company PayPal Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: PYPL) was once owned by eBay Inc. (NASDAQ: EBAY). The two operations were joined at the hip, and eBay used PayPal as its nontraditional way to spend money at the online auction site. In July 2015, eBay spun off PayPal into a new public company, but many people expected the core relationship would go on indefinitely.

    eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY) notably offers strong reach, but sellers are completely responsible for fulfillment, and most customer service responsibilities fall in their court as well. Small sellers are moving away from eBay as an alternative to Amazon, according to a recent survey from Feedvisor. 65% of Amazon merchants also sold on eBay in 2017, but that number fell to just 52% in 2018.

    Broadly speaking, there are four main types of competitive advantage:

    Network effect: When a new customer joins a network, it creates additional value for all other members of that network. A classic example is eBay (NASDAQ: EBAY). As more buyers joined eBay’s network it created additional demand for goods. Sellers signed on to eBay to meet that growing demand and added even more goods to the network in the process. That attracted even more buyers to the platform. This cycle repeated itself until eBay became a premier destination to buy and sell goods online. High switching costs: If it is costly in terms of time or money to switch to a competing product, customers tend to stay loyal even in the face of price increases. A great example of this is in consumer banking. Once a person’s paycheck and bills become linked to their checking account, it becomes a large pain for them to consider switching to another bank, even if the interest rate they earn is lower or their fees are higher. This fact keeps many customers loyal to their banks for years. Low-cost producer: If a company enjoys a technological, scale, or geographic advantage that allows it to produce a good service for a lower cost than its competition, it can charge a lower price and still earn good returns. Walmart is the classic example of a company that uses its huge buying power and an ultra-efficient supply chain to sell consumers goods at a much lower price than its competition. Intangible assets: This is a catch-all category that includes things like patents, branding, trade secrets, and regulatory protection. A great example of this is Tiffany’s & Co’s use of its strong brand name to convince consumers to pay a huge premium for its jewelry.

    The best growth stocks have at least one competitive advantage working for them that will keep their profits protected from market forces.
