eBay auction sniper

Login issue fixed - 2011-07-15


Okay, we have fixed the issue that was preventing hidbid from being able to log into eBay for some users.  We're sorry for missed snipes for members that this affected and for the trouble in the first place.

Update - 2011-07-14


Ok, it looks like my guess is correct, and I think I already have the fix, but am afraid to mess with the code myself. Hopefully I can get ahold of our coder in the next few minutes rather than waiting to make the fix when he starts tonight.

Anyway, what you could do now, if you want to set up snipes and have had this issue with the ebay login not being correct, is change your password so that it doesn't have any quote marks or apostrophes in it, as they are causing the problem.

Again, sorry for the trouble and missed snipes. I'll update the news as soon as there's something to report.

eBay login problem for some users - 2011-07-14


There are some snipes that aren't executing for some members. According to the response pages, the login info is incorrect, preventing hidbid from logging into ebay to execute the snipes.

I have an idea of what it might be and will test after posting this, but not sure if I'm right. Our coder won't start his next shift until tonight, but this will be #1 on the priority list if my guess isn't correct.

If you've set up a snipe and it didn't execute and the 'response' for it is the ebay sign in page, you're one of the members this issue is affecting. Don't set up any more snipes until we update the news saying we've taken care of the issue, as, they won't execute.

We're very sorry for the missed snipes. Hopefully this is taken care of shortly.
