eBay auction sniper

It looks like eBay is the problem - 2015-10-30


It looks like ebay is refusing login attempts randomly. We were looking and looking at the code and database thinking somehow the login info must have been being corrupted somehow. I looked around and see that other sniping services are having the same problem.

I'm going to contact eBay to see if they can/will put our ip address on some sort of 'white list' and stop blocking login attempts from hidbid, we'll see what happens.

These login errors are going to continue in the meantime. One of the two servers are submitting most snipes, but there may be some that do not execute on either server.

If eBay keeps this up, there's nothing we can do. Their tightening their security I suppose for the holiday season, or, maybe getting rid of automated sniping.

I'll post an update when I have more news.

Hopefully the login issue is fixed - 2015-10-29


Our coder found something and is hopeful that it was what was causing so many login errors, we're not sure.

Which, if so, snipes set up before now may still have the problem, but new snipes won't. But again, we're not sure if the issue is fixed or not.

We're monitoring new snipes to see.

I'll post an update when I have more news.

Sorry for the trouble.

Login errors worse today - 2015-10-28


We're still having login errors. We know why we're having them (because of passwords getting corrupted), but we don't know why yet.

Until we get this figured out, it would be best that you made other plans for your sniping.

I'm hoping the issue is fixed tomorrow, but really don't know when it will be.

I'll post an update when I have some news.

I'm very sorry for the lost snipes and trouble.
