I can't connect on my iPhone or on the laptop?

Is it just me? I need to pay for some items and I can't get on. angry

Me too Gloria! Glad I'm not the only one!

Yes - i cant get in phone or laptop�� lol

GloriousGloria Tue 12-Aug-14 10:25:43

Oh thank goodness for that.

I thought the laptop had a nasty virus confused

Me too, both app and browser version. Hope it's sorted soon otherwise they will lose ££££s.

It's annoying, isn't it. Though it has made me think quite how much time I must spend on it!!!

Me too, I have quite a few things for sale and loads of questions to answer.

Me too, I have a love/hate relationship with the site! On a lighter note, I really appreciate these eBay threads as I've learnt loads off of Mumsnetters. I don't really like the eBay official help forums.

I find the eBay forums can get a bit aggressive!!

buttercrumble Tue 12-Aug-14 11:45:11

Same here

ScienceRocks Tue 12-Aug-14 11:45:30

Phew! I was worrying it was just me!

PurpleFrog Tue 12-Aug-14 11:52:31

Me too - I have some items that end tonight and haven't been able to get the website to load at all. I hope they haven't had a security problem, and have taken it down. I am fed up changing passwords at the moment.

AbsolutelyCrushed Tue 12-Aug-14 11:55:30

It's fine for me, on both laptop and phone.

ScienceRocks Tue 12-Aug-14 12:00:05

Crushed, I'm crushed.

Not working for me on my iPad and I have tracking into to add, shipping info to put on and messages to answer.

Yet another reason why I'm thinking ebay is just too difficult for me...

PurpleFrog Tue 12-Aug-14 12:05:41

AbsolutelyCrushed - that is eBay UK you are taking about?

I did find a web page that suggests there are a lotos people in the same boat:
downdetector.co.uk/problems/ebay

From the same site BT also seems to be having problems in places so maybe it is part of the network that is down

PurpleFrog Tue 12-Aug-14 12:06:14

Oops - lotos = lots of

stationtostation Tue 12-Aug-14 12:08:21

They had planned site maintenance this morning, so I'd imagine something has gone badly wrong. Bit peeved off as I've got listings finishing today and will miss out on bids.

PigletJohn Tue 12-Aug-14 12:10:59

ah, that explains it. Glad I looked on here.

Tommy Tue 12-Aug-14 12:11:37

glad it's not just me but........

AbsolutelyCrushed Tue 12-Aug-14 12:14:44

Ha, how weird. Yes, I can access eBay UK. I'm at work, though, so no idea who the internet is through!

It's remarkably fast, which is probably related.

PurpleFrog Tue 12-Aug-14 12:32:54

Got on now. They say:
