EBay downtime

Last week, the popular ecommerce site’ users reported some website issue. Some people had issues with accessing their online accounts while others had complaints of log-in failures. An EBay spokesperson said that the issues had been intermittent and that the users had been intimated in advance that the scheduled maintenance work is going to be actioned. Some disruption was expected and the only reason why this problem as highlighted is because the work took longer than expected.

The site apologized for these intermittent problems and told users that the issue would be resolved soon. Users ended up venting their frustration about the EBay issue, on Twitter the micro-blogging site. .

Other companies

This is not the only site that has faced a system downtime. Of late, numerous big websites said that they had faced varied technical issues for various inexplicable reasons. Amazon, Google, Microsoft.com and Apple’s iMessage and iCloud were some of the services that had got affected. There was a time when EBay was the top contender in the ecommerce space but has been usurped from top-spot by numerous other competitors and is on shaky ground.
