eBay is experiencing technical problems tonight

As several readers have reported to Tamebay tonight, and as eBay has confirmed in an announcement, the eBay website is experiencing technical problems. And it is affecting users in the UK.

In particular we’ve noticed that accessing My eBay is very sluggish but buying items seems to be operational. As far as we can see…

As eBay.com says on their systems status board: “We’re aware some users are currently experiencing intermittent slow site speed while using certain eBay marketplace features, particularly when accessing ‘My eBay.’ Our teams are working to address these issues as a priority. We apologize for any inconvenience this interruption causes. We will share additional information with our community as it becomes available.” There has been no mention of such problems on the eBay UK announcement board or via social media, at time of writing.

It’s obvious too that there is a problem according to DownDetector as well. Here’s the graph and the heat map of complaints from a few moments ago.
