Ebay requires verification code, not bidding on active snipes Sun Aug 24, 2014 05:49 PM Quote

I've had the app (paid version) for a few days now. It worked perfectly up until last night. All of my snipes are lost due to it saying that ebay requires a verification code. I can place bids manually with no problem but the snipe app isn't working at all.

Any advice? I looked through my email, nothing regarding a verification code was found. I'm not buying more than usual or anything.

Here is a copy of my answer in another thread:
Code: Select All
It appears eBay had the issue when they started to ask for verification code randomly.
Once the issue was resolved, but it came back a few more times.

I see the snipes are coming through this very moment so it looks good and stable now.
It sounds like eBay fixed the issue after all.

It seems like the same issue came on up eBay's side. It looks good as of now, but there are many snipes were affected by that.

I'm sorry for affected snipes. I wish I could do something about it besides reporting the issue to eBay.

illia,
Correct, as I mentioned earlier, eBay had the issue today so your snipes were affected.
It's possible the issue may come up again today since it requires some time for eBay to fix it.

Sashka..

I had this problem last night around 9:50 pm EDT. It caused me to lose an item that I wanted to a lower bidder. Would have won easily if the snipe had worked.

Could you please notify us here when you know FOR SURE that this problem is fixed?

I have been using Myibidder for a year and a half (Windows app), and it has worked perfectly every time! Until now. This is the first time it has let me down. Not sure I can trust it again until you advise that the problem is definitely fixed for good. Thanks.

Gary,
Everything looks good since yesterday, so it looks like it was resolved.
However, I can't guarantee that eBay will never have any issues in the future. I have no control over eBay.

After all, sniping does not guarantee winning. If you need 100% guarantee, you have to bid manually on eBay, high and early.

Was not looking for a guarantee of winning, Sashka. But I would like to hear that this particular problem is completely understood and fixed.

Technical glitches happen, I understand that. But after 18 months of literally 100% reliability in using your product, forgive me if I have come to count on perfection. To that I plead guilty.

Gary,
I have no control over it, so nobody can give you 100% guarantee that this issue is resolved.
If you see some service provides 100%, there is something fishy about it or they are not being completely honest.
That's just a nature of the service like this -- it depends on another service. If that other service is having issues, all dependents are having issues too.

eBay is a complex system and they have issues from time to time. Having issues in a complex system is normal, but the main thing is not how many issues you have, but how fast you can resolve them.
eBay is pretty good for resolving their issues quickly. That's why I like them and recommend to others.

Just had the same issue.
The first bid was successful, the second, 30 minutes later failed.

Yes, it came back. Even though it was recovered significantly faster, it affected some snipes.
I also made some changes to minimize it, but it looks like eBay is improving it anyway.
