eBay Experiences Buying and Selling Outages
By: Ina Steiner
eBay is experiencing severe technical issues this afternoon. It's System Status board shows a "service outage" for Bidding, Buy It Now, Checkout, Listing, and Shipping Label Printing.
One reader was having problems when revising listings - the system was getting extremely slow, and then she was presented with a new form.
A colleague then forwarded an email they received from eBay with the following message: "It's not you. It's us. Our server is down, but we'll have things back to normal soon. If you still need help, visit our help pages."
Let us know what you're experiencing and we'll provide periodic updates.
It's worth noting that at 5:22 pm Eastern, an eBay moderator referred users to the Status board in response to complaints on the eBay boards.
We can find reports on the eBay board as early as 4:50 pm Eastern. Down Detector
shows a big spike and states: "eBay is having issues since 4:40 PM EST."
At 9:41 pm, an eBay moderator posted on a thread on the eBay boards "All issues should now be resolved." No details on the system status board (which went to green even while problems remained), and no announcement on any of the announcement boards.
