eBay semi down this morning

Whilst the eBay site is up, many of the functions sellers rely on are down. Sellers are unable to access sold items, messages or pretty much anything else that they need to do to get the weekend’s orders shipped and run their businesses.

Hopefully it won’t last for too long and eBay will get everything running again shortly.

Edited to add: ebay have told us: We are currently experiencing a site problem and our teams are working to get back to normal as soon as possible. Our highest priority is our members’ trading success and we sincerely apologise for the inconvenience. We will share further developments with our user community as information becomes available.ย  As a marketplace, we understand how important it is that we maintain a reliable platform for our buyers and sellers.

Edited to add: All issues should now be fixed. Let us know of you’re back to work out if you see any further issues.

11/11/14 Edited to add:Apologies for the late update… I was in meetings all yesterday. However eBay have told us: Based on our initial investigation, the issue was a result of a network issue with one of our data centers. We quickly took action to re-route traffic to alternative data centers to help restore functionality to the majority of our users.

We know any interruption for our users is frustrating. Weโ€™re very sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused to the buyers or sellers involved. In the next day or two, eBay teams will be in touch directly with affected sellers to provide them with additional information.
