Today, some eBay users are experiencing issues when signing in to the site.

It is only impacting a portion of our users; most eBay users are unaffected. We’re working to resolve this issue quickly and will continue to keep our customers updated. We apologize for any inconvenience to our users.

Alert Update: The technical problems being experienced by EBay's customers have been fixed. Please see annoucement below:

***Technical Issue Impacts Some eBay Customers***

September 03, 2014 | 05:49PM PST/PT

Earlier today, some eBay users experienced issues when visiting our site. The issue has been resolved and site functionality has now been restored. Based on our initial investigation, this was the result of a technical issue that occurred during scheduled server maintenance.

While many users were unaffected, we know any interruption for our users is frustrating. And we know that some of our affected sellers may have questions about their selling activity; in the coming days, we will provide them with additional information separately on possible fee adjustments and related seller protections.

We’re very sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused to the buyers or sellers involved.

Based on the annoucements made by EBay, the technical problems were not due to hackers gaining access to their servers or systems, but seems to be related to the scheduled maintenance for September 4.

    My ebay is unaccessible and there is no way to contact Ebay. Ebay does not use a human tech support base. If you don't use the online tools there is no personal telephone or chat support.

    I have been trying for 17 hours to get the opportunity to reset a new password to no avail.

    GOODBYE Ebay relationship. Ebay is like Obama. You get what you pay for. Ebay is free membership so you cannot expect any customer satisfaction. America is NOT the land of the free.

    It's like marrying. When you marry your spouse HIS MOTHER IS A FREE ADD ON...whether you like it or not IT's YOURS.
