Default EBay app using 15gb?!

I was just checking my data coverage this month and noticed that my eBay app has used over 15gb of data as well as a few other apps on there that seem quote high in usage. I rarely use them and notice they only use so much on wifi...

What's causing this and how can I keep tabs on it?

Doesn't explain why it's using up so much unnecessary data

I checked my data usage with ebay and found some 200 kb. So there is something wrong. Maybe you have loaded too many big pictures. Delete the app and reinstall directly from play store.
HTC One (M8), Stock Rom 4.4.2, Sense 6,0, rooted / unlocked / S-On
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, (8020) LTE/WiFi, Stock Rom 4.1.2,

Where it all began for me: and where I am now:

the other apps are pretty heavy in data usage as well which is confusing me as well. 700mb for kernel tweaker?!
