Problems with eBay Shops/Stores categories on all sites

No primary category set

frustratedeBay UK have just put out an announcement regarding “Global Shops Issues”. Here is the announcement:

We’d like to advise members of multiple issues with Shop Categories which they may be experiencing. Currently affected are multiple areas of a seller’s shop, including their Shop front Navigation, Promotion Boxes displaying items, Shop Category search, and the Listing Frame on their View Item page. This issue is currently affecting all sites. We will continue to provide updates where possible and thank you for your patience while we work to resolve this.

Personally haven’t experienced any of this – though a few people are complaining about their sales tap being turned off (not unusual in itself). Anybody know what’s going on?

Update: Aha. Slightly more detail from German-language sites: items are not appearing in the correct categories. eBay are working on a fix.

  1. I’m just surprised that ebay noticed.

    They seem to be blissfully unaware of numerous other problems. Perhaps it was the cash tap that woke them up; I just wish they would wake up and smell the herbal tea (too much caffeine in coffee-keeps me awake).

  2. Havent noticed any of the above but the email forwarding for member to member emails seems to have been broken since Monday…

  3. We have issues with our messages not forwarding to our gmail account. It seems like eBay is full of glitches at the moment… It’s worrying. Glitches cost money and more importantly time. 😯

  4. eBay have announced on the UK site that the issue is now resolved.

    There never was any announcement on .com that there was ever any issue at all.
