  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "MercadoLibre increasing expenses related to warehousing, infrastructure transition on public cloud, free shipping subsidies and discounts on mPOS devices are hurting the company’s margin expansion. Further, rising competition from e-commerce giants poses serious threat to its market position. However, the company is currently benefiting from growing number of confirmed registered users. Increasing adoption rate of MercadoPago continues to aid growth in total payment volume of the company. Further, improving shipments via MercadoEnvios are major positives. All these factors are driving MercadoLibre’s top-line growth. Additionally, the company’s strong mobile wallet initiatives are accelerating the adoption rate of its Mobile Wallet.
