An eBay UK minor website outage affected their online trading this morning with shoppers complaining that they can’t log-in or check-out.
An outage watchdog, Downdetector, said that eBay started to experience website issues since 8:08 am. Downdetector said to receive 377 reports from eBay shoppers in which they revealed an error that stops them from accessing the marketplace. The most reported problems according to Downdector are issues with the website (54%), log-in (37%), and check out (8%).
The news of what appears to be a minor outage made it into national publications including Express and Metro.
While the nature of the problem appears to be unclear, I have just checked eBay.co.uk to find out that the website is working normally.
