EBay down – what happened

According to online outage tracker Down Detector, more than 300 users worldwide experienced issues on Wednesday.

Problems appear to hit users hardest in the UK, US, Australia and parts of Europe.

Reports began at 7am BST (2am ET) and subsided by 9am (4am).

Until we hear from eBay directly, it’s impossible to say what caused the outage.

During the site’s downtime, frustrated users took to Twitter to complain about the outage.

One wrote: “The website is down, looks like no formatting is being applied”.

Another said: “Aaaaaaand eBay is down.”

It appears only a small subset of users were affected by the site’s issues.

The Sun tried to access the website and app at roughly 8:30am BST (3:30am ET) from London and both were working as normal.
