    www.amazon.com is a trademarked term and not available to use, as highlighted by the normal error message when trying to use this within your ad text:
    “Due to trademark reasons, we do not allow advertisers to use ‘www.amazon.com’ in their Google AdWords ads. This term may be trademarked either for a certain product or service category and may apply only in certain countries.”

    The eBay ad is being displayed by using AdWords dynamic keyword insertion which is obviously not checking for the use of trademarked terms.
