eBay Access Issues by Verizon Subscribers?

By: Ina Steiner

Sponsored Link

Requests are coming in from people having trouble accessing eBay and Half and/or PayPal. There seems to be a problem at Verizon that is leading to people being able to access some sites but not others. A search on Twitter confirms there are many complaints about access issues from Verizon users.

Here's a link to Verizon forum where people are reporting problems.

If you have information, please post it here.

UPDATE: eBay posted a notice about the problem at noon, and pronounced it resolved at 2:15, explaining: "There was an interruption in ISP service for some users that prevented them from reaching the eBay and Paypal sites. This has now been resolved."

Was this related to the North Korean hacker scare? Sites like Aol, CNN and any Time Warner site were unavailable as well.

Maybe they wanted to pay by personal check. Oh wait...eBay does accept checks if you are paying your bill. They just don't allow regular sellers to accept them. Unless of course you are one of their special eBay employee's then you can get to advertise paper and even if they get reported nothing happens.
