eBay auction sniper

News

Update - 2015-12-11


As you've noticed if you've set up a snipe in the past day, we again removed the 'check at ebay' button. That is one of the few things we added since the login error issue stopped from when it was a problem a couple of months ago.

I don't know that it makes a difference, but the # of login attempts from hidbid will be reduced, so we're hoping that will help with the login errors.

Most snipes are still executing ok on one of the two servers, we've had one snipe so far today that didn't execute on either.

I'll keep monitoring the snipes, hopefully this issue will disappear shortly.

I'll make another post when I have some more news.

Sorry for the trouble.

Login errors occurring again - 2015-12-10


There have been some login errors today, two snipes had them on both servers.

I'll ask the coder to check them out to see if there's anything we can try changing to work around them, but I doubt there is, or at least we can't think of it. Re-trying the login if it doesn't work the first time isn't helping.

Things may be ok an hour from now, or maybe never, I don't know. eBay is rejecting valid login info whenever, out of the blue. It makes no sense, its ridiculous really. I wonder if it is intentional, they've had issues for months.

Most snipes are still executing ok, on at least one of the two servers. 'Most' is as it should be however.

You should be able to login to ebay manually ( I guess) to place bids.

I'll post an update when there's more news.

ebay issues - 2015-11-28


eBay has been having issues the past couple of days, and still is apparently, as pages aren't loading for me right now.

Snipes may have trouble until things are resolved. Which, they posted that things were resolved on the 25th. I don't see any problem snipes for today and they not be any because of their issues, but I wanted to post this warning anyway.

Here's a link to their announcements page if you want to monitor, which, they not made a post saying there are more issues, so maybe not much use:
