Sellers report faults with eBay UK search

This afternoon, we’ve received numerous reports of sellers having problems with search on eBay UK. Basically, sellers who would expect to find their products in more prominent positions in search on eBay are discovering their goods further down returned search results.

Oner seller says of the problem: Sales are dramatically down. I noticed when I checked an item that was No.3 on best match yesterday hoping to see it at No.1. Now its not even in the top 200. This is the same for everything we sell! Our concerns are what will happen once it is fixed? Will we regain our position or will our current lack of sales impact us even once resolved?”

At the time of writing, I’ve asked eBay for comment but not received a comment on what the problem is, how long it has been happening or whn it might be fixed.

Are you experiencing similar problems and what is the effect on your sales?
