eBay is down across the UK, US and Europe

Frustrated shoppers are reporting that  eBay is down, leaving thousands of people locked out of their accounts. 

Users began reported having issues accessing the website and its app just before 8am (4am EST / 1am PST)  this morning.

The crash prevented users in the UK, United States, Europe, Australia and other areas of the globe from logging in.

Sellers who were denied access to the auction and sales site have called for compensation, saying they missed out on last-ditch bids on items. 

eBay has apologised for the outage and said the issue was resolved around an hour later.

Down Detector, a site that monitors technical issues with websites around the world, said there are hundreds of reports, mostly in Europe, that eBay is not working. 

Efforts to log on to eBay brought up a blank page, while the app was also failing to load after the unexplained outage.

One customer tweeted: ‘Annoying as I had products up for bid and now they won’t have sold or won’t have sold for the value they should because no one could bid.’

One user posted on Twitter: ‘How am I supposed to buy s*** I don’t need when eBay is down?’

Another said: ‘Can’t log in to see my items that are ending this morning. Hope eBay are offering compensation as I’ll loose out on bids if they don’t fix their problems soon!’

A spokesman for eBay said in a statement: ‘Ebay is currently experiencing technical difficulties.

‘We have a team working to resolve the issue as soon as possible.’ 

‘Apologies for any inconvenience.’ 

eBay is used for billions of transactions each day and so even the shortest disruption can cause vast financial problems for the sellers and buyers who visit it.

eBay claims to be used by 180 million active buyers, who together spend nearly $100bn (£79m) each year.

As well as running the main auction site, the company also owns ticketing service StubHub and sells classified ads

Writing on Twitter, Rosie said: ‘I have been trying to access my eBay account but still not loading via the app, is anyone else experiencing this problem? 

A furious site user said she would ‘have a meltdown’ if the outage meant she lost out on an item she was after.

She wrote: ‘This is so annoying. I woke up early to win something. If it has sold already I am going to have a melt down.. Ebay you have ruined my life!’

One seller said that he lost out on money: ‘Damn Ebay, I have an auction sale ending at 8.10am, so no last minute bids, thanks alot, will be on to you later,’ he said.
