Total revenues increased 84% annually to $4.3 billion during the three-month period. Consequently, the company turned to a profit of $3.13 per share, on an adjusted basis, from a loss of $1.35 per share last year.
Unadjusted profit was $273.9 million or $2.54 per share, compared to a loss of $181.9 million or $1.98 per share in the second quarter of 2019. Both earnings and revenues topped expectations.
At the end of the quarter, the company had 25.98 million active customers, up 46% from the same period of last year. Meanwhile, net revenue per active customer dropped 1.6% to $440.
“We experienced unprecedented demand in Q2 and saw record numbers of new and repeat customers choose Wayfair. Our proprietary logistics network, strong supplier partnerships, and nimble and dedicated team of more than 16,000 employees enabled Wayfair to consistently serve our customers at a time they needed us most, both in North America and Europe,” said Wayfair’s CEO Niraj Shah.
