It looks like eBay is down today after we just received a couple of reports, although further confirmation came from tweets arriving almost every second and popular forums also getting thousands of reports from users.
One Facebook page has a comment almost every 3 seconds reporting eBay is down in certain UK towns, so it’s not clear if this is a global outage or just focused on the UK.
Users can’t log on from Safari or iPhone and Android apps, although as we mentioned above it looks like eBay is not working for the majority of the UK rather than USA. We will update Product Reviews readers as we got more information in the coming hour.
Two of the reports we received stated, “eBay is down in Shrewsbury, Shropshire”. And another added, “I keep getting a webpage saying not available, although I can get into my messages without the ability to answer anyone”.

Are you having problems with the eBay sign in page on apps or via the official website? If eBay is down today for you, what location are you in?
Update: It looks like users in many UK towns are reporting problems with eBay not working. These include the likes of Derby, Sutton, and more with Devon and Cornwall top of the list for areas. Another Facebook user said, “there’s no connection to any eBay in Europe”.
Update 2: There’s been a number of statements officially released in the last hour, which all state the company is “investigating and will update” people when they know more.
