eBay app weekend problems with server down

By Alan Ng - Nov 14, 2015

We can see that the eBay app is not working at the moment in the UK, with many shoppers frustrated that they cannot log into eBay UK to complete their current purchases.

We’re not sure how widespread this problem is, as the website appears to be working for some but completely unavailable for others.

The eBay app sign in appears to be down for many though at the time of writing so hopefully Ebay’s team are already aware of the issues and are working on a fix.


We’ve included some live feedback above from eBay shoppers to confirm that there are definitely problems with the eBay app servers not working on November 14.

As we press for a status update on this, give us your experience this morning when using eBay UK. Are you having problems too or can you get in without any issues?

Spokesperson for online marketplace eBay left this statement: We have resolved a networking error that was causing some customers to experience slowness or loading issues when access certain parts of the eBay site. This has been fully resolved and we apologise for the inconvenience this may have caused.
