eBay said it was working on fixing both issues as a high priority.
Update: eBay said the issues had been resolved in an update to its post at 8:47 pm ET.
Update 10/16/2019: Tuesday evening’s note that the problems had been resolved disappeared from the Announcement Board post on Wednesday, and sellers continued to report major problems creating and revising listings due to problems with Item Specifics.
The issues appear to be quite serious – eBay executive Harry Temkin had to cancel an Facebook Live appearance on Wednesday afternoon because he was “working with teams on resolving the technical issues surrounding Item Specifics.”
We’re not sure if the issue with Item Specifics is also impacting buyers who try to narrow down searches using filters.
eBay Announcement follows:
Technical issues reported in Seller Hub, and listings in clothing, shoes and accessories
We’ve received reports of technical issues in Seller Hub, including sales graphs not being up to date, as well as problems when revising or creating listings within Clothing, Shoes and Accessories categories.
We’d like to assure you that eBay is aware and we’re working on fixing both issues as a high priority. Please check back and we will update this post when it’s resolved.
We apologize for any inconvenience and as always, thank you for selling on eBay.
