eBay Sign-In Glitch Gets Worse! Bah Humbug

By: Ina Steiner

Just as people are trying to process holiday orders - when time is of the essence - a glitch that prevents them from doing business on eBay! (link)

At least this time there was a fairly prompt post on the eBay Systems Announcement Board about the glitch. So many people think it's a problem with their computer and waste time clearing their cache (and pulling their hair out). I hope the problem is solved quickly.

I can't thank readers enough for alerting me to news (the good and the bad). Please keep those tips coming in!

That is not the only glitch - the picture glitch lasted for days and was worse than they said. It was a resizing issue for some folks but I schedule my items and revise before the time involved and I could not change the pictures page revisions for three days. Lee

eBay Seems to be very callous about the damages caused by the sign in glitches.  NO REIMBURSEMENTS ON SELLING FEES!!!  Buyers could not sign in to make bids, fewer buyers fewer bids, lower selling prices.  How many other sellers incurred losses due to eBays software upgrades??

Not an attorney, but considering the losses experienced by so many sellers......  CLASS ACTION!
