View Full Version : Ebay Down This Morning???

04-29-2002, 12:54 PM
I had one of my auctions end this morning about one hour ago...problem was it seems that ebay has been down for the last 2 1/2 hours. Is this common?

Funny I got the notice saying it ended (successfully) but I can't even get on the site to finish the transaction.

Well, its 11:45 in Indiana, and I've been trying to get on for over an hour. Even eBay UK seems to be down.

Hi Arlene,

Yep, having trouble in Dallas, too.

This is the first time in many months, purhaps a year, that I can
recall eBay going down. So it is unusual.

Yeah I am pretty ticked off, I wanted to bid on a painting and the auction ended just a few minutes ago..... The site has been down for hours. what do they do for people who's items expire, and the site is down?

If the site is down and your item ends during that time, you can request a refund of your listing costs....and relist the item.

Carly and what about if the item sold for the opening bid?

If the item sold, you won't get a refund....but you could request one! It never hurts to try. You can also request a refund for the time that the site was down...like a percent refund. I've never done this but I've read about it in the community forums several times.
