Last minute bidding on auctions is not working.  I bid $189 on an item that ended up selling for $107.  Rumors that last minute bidding is not working are true!

With over 10 ebay outages happening all at the same time and in every department, JD ordered the garbage collectors to come in everyday.

This situation is a loss primarily for the seller, but also for ebay and paypal getting their cut of the sale and payment too.  No wonder ebay is failing and sellers are leaving by the droves.

Lately, lots of watchers on my items, and no last minute bids. Disappointing.

I've had the disappearing-clock issue when bidding. Talk about yer moment of panic... not knowing where you are in the final seconds is really bad. One further complication is that some eBay page time displays are calculated from the network time; others (such as the Notifications pulldown) are calculated from the user's own computer time setting, so if that's off (especially if it's fast), an auction can be listed as Over when in fact it's still in its final minutes. Very poor code writing.

In my case, last evening I left a $277 bid on an item that sold for $83. When trying to link to eBay to see why they blocked my bid, all I get is a loop of entering scrambled numbers--over and over--no pathway to eBay for explanation. STEAMING!!!!

Have tried to snipe 3 items through Esnipe and none of them went through even though my bid was MUCH higher than what they sold for. ALSO STEAMING!!

Have been trying for 3 days to phone eBay with no results.  I have the same issue with lots of people watching items and no bidding at the last minute. Just doesn't make sense. So, I'm slowly moving my sales over to Bonanza.  So tired of eBay's crap.

Javascript seems to be failing on pages for me today, causing the bid button to not work. Which means I've missed out on bidding on several ending auctions.
