Still getting the verification code page - 2017-03-14
All snipes are still getting the verification code page, so they're still not executing.
The sniper engine has been shut off, it will be turned back on in a few hours, and see if there's any change. We have an idea as to what to try to resolve or at least greatly reduce the problem, but there will be some steps you'll have to take.
Do not set up any more snipes or count on any pending snipes to execute at this time.
Once I have some more news, I post it here.
Again, sorry for the trouble.
ebay requiring verification code, snipes not executing - 2017-03-12
eBay is showing the code verification code page again, preventing snipes from executing. The first 2 executed ok today, and the rest have been getting the verification code page. Any pending snipes most likely will not execute.
I don't know how long this will last, it looks like we're not the only service having the problem.
We'll try to get a solution in place, I'll update the news section as soon as I have more info for you.
Until then, figure on none of your snipes executing.
Sorry for the trouble.
Snipes are executing,... - 2016-01-12
Sorry for the long delay in posting an update. I wanted to wait until everything was good to go, but it has been too long.
Snipes are executing, but there are a few login errors. Some of the login errors may be from the wrong ebay password being entered by a user, as, the code does not check the ebay login info during snipe set up, like it used to. Some of the login errors are from captchas being shown, so, not actually login errors, but still preventing snipe execution.
The login errors are few, I don't think there were any yesterday. There are fewer snipes right now, but the % of login errors is still lower than before.
If the snipe # builds back up, maybe they'll be more frequent, I don't know. We've made one change that seems to help reduce the login errors, but, the whole plan hasn't been executed yet. Hopefully once it has, all the login errors will be gone.
The captchas are a different issue, the idea for dealing with them is part of the plan not yet done. I think they occur more so for new users of hidbid, or for ebay accounts that aren't very active, or, have had recent changes, like a password change.
I'm having trouble getting the idea set up. Hopefully it will be in the next few days, then we can see if it helps further.
Again, sorry for the trouble and long delay.
