eBay site glitches and running slow

eBay BugeBay have having a few problems this morning, with readers reporting that the site has been unresponsive overnight giving slow access to the site. Sellers are telling us that they’re unable to process orders.

We’re also hearing that eBay’s glitches may be impacting third party management platforms who rely on eBay’s API to keep stock levels updated and download orders from eBay.

While there’s no official notice on eBay’s announcement board, eBay have posted the following on their Facebook page:
