eBay auction sniper

News

We just made another update - 2015-11-04


We just made another update, hoping it will get rid of the login errors. Which, we've only had a couple snipes not execute on either server today, because of that error. We'd still like to eliminate it.

The 'invalid item' response is occurring again, the plan is to look at that next.

We'll see what happens with the login error now that we've made some new changes. I'm a bit afraid of doing it as almost all snipes were executing ok on one of the two servers.

The inlalid item issue is gone - 2015-11-03


The invalid item issue is gone, a little bit of good news. The login issue remains however.

Until today, most of the snipes executed ok on one of the two servers. Today more snipes had the login error on both servers. I don't know if that is because of the changes we made or not.

We're not going to implement any changes tonight but are creating changes that can be quickly implemented just by changing a couple file names. We're going to give the current changes another day. I'm not sure that is the best thing to do, we'll see.

If there's no improvement, we'll implement the new changes tomorrow evening.

eBay is apparently having all sorts of trouble right now. Not just with logins, but with just about everything.

We'll see what happens.

UPDATE - Still having the issue, best to make other plans for your bidding - 2015-11-03


We changed something last night but it isn't helping.

On top of the issue where some snipes that won show as lost, now some items are returning an invalid notice when they are actually valid.

I'm trying to get some outside help on the login errors as we can't get it.

Again, sorry for the trouble.

I'll make and update here when I have some more, hopefully good, news.

Until then, it would be best if you made other plans for your bidding.

***It might not hurt to contact eBay about this, telling them that sniping is the only way you bid and if you can't snipe, you'll take your buying elsewhere. They caused the problem and they could stop it from happening. I don't know if it would help, but I read online that someone called ebay about it and they the customer service rep said they're trying to discourage sniping. I don't know it that is true or not. When I called them a few days ago, they said their internal dept. handles these issues and I couldn't speak to anyone from that dept., that I should expect a response in 30 to 60 days.

The correct login info is being submitted, it is being rejected, for many snipes.

Again, sorry for the trouble. I don't know when/if we'll have a solution.
