Given the current problems noted by others, I wonder if scheduled snipes are being properly implemented? In my case, I was able to log in and place several snipes in my account, (though each item took a long time to register). However, none are scheduled until several hours from now. So have others placed snipes today and had them successfully executed.

I added some snipes last night, before the slowdowns began, and the first one fired this morning on time, as expected. The others won't be closing for 20 or more hours, so I'll just have to see what happens.

I also have the warning message in the web interface that I have to re-authorize Gixen. Checking on eBay, Gixen is no longer listed as an app that has access. Unfortunately, I didn't know about it before the successful snipe, so I don't know if my upcoming snipes will work anymore.

My snipe is scheduled very soon, so I think I will have to place it manually, as Gixen is too slow at the moment, and even if snipes are placed, I doubt they will go through in a few seconds.

FWIW, Gixen is still listed as an app that has access on my account.

Gixen is not listed as an APP that has access to my account either... but it still won an auction for me a few hours ago... so Ebay not displaying the valid authorisation is an issue that Ebay need to address at some stage.

Oh, interesting, Cupid. Well, not surprised. eBay is one of the buggiest web services I know of. The joys of being a monopoly. Razz

Mario got the site working again. I went to settings a re-authorized and now eBay shows that Gixen is a valid third-party app. Smile

Yes, I've just done the same... according to Gixen it wasn't due to run out for another few months, but I renewed it anyway and now Ebay is showing it...

So, since it was still working, it seems Ebay just lost reference to some of the older ones.
