American multinational company eBay crashed for a second time in the month of September for over five hours on Sunday. Thousands of users could not sell or buy their products on the website and switched to Twitter to voice their anger.
According to a Mirror, a customer who had called eBay authorities to complain was told that there was a queue for at least seven hours. A spokesman for eBay said: “We’re actively investigating a technical issue that is impacting eBay for some users. We understand that this issue has also resulted in some customers having difficulty contacting our customer service teams. We are working to fix the issue now and apologize for any inconvenience.”
This is the third major outage in little more than a month. eBay crashed in spectacular style on the 12th of August and then again on their 19th Birthday on the 3rd of September. Now just 11 days later the site has fallen over again.
