Can't load up Ebay homepage

I am unable to load Ebay, I have been trying for about 3-4 days now. All other internet pages are and have been working fine. The Ebay homepage tries to load but the pictures don't load fully then the egg timer freezes and it says not responding, I have done a search and it seems that many others are experiencing a similar problem but as all other pages work with absolutely no problem i think the fault is at Ebay's end. I have deleted temporary files and cookies etc as suggested by others but it made no difference.

Please help.

    I am finding that the moment the ebay home page starts to load the whole thing freezes and the windows task manager says that my ISP(aol) is not responding. My gut feeling is that the problem is at's end as I can get onto any of the foreign ebays with no probs. HELP!

I think sally porche is right, it is at ebays end. Mine as also stopped freezing after being locked for about 5 days. A bit awkward if your in the middle of selling an item. I almost scrapped the p.c.and bought a new one. [I have had it 8 years] It runs on steam!!

Cant get into ebay sign in account. it half loads with a blank screen

Hi there!
It could be that your computer's cache and cookies are full. Try to clear the temporary internet files in your computer. You can also use another browser.
If you already did all of it, try to check if you already updated the java and if it's enabled cookies. Check the security setting of your computer and set it to middle because you will not be able to load a page if the setting is too high.
I hope this helps. Have a great day!

Why dose it take ebay so long to load up on my work computer, if at all. and some time it loads right up

there are two things why it's loading slowly, your computers cache might be full, you need to clear the cache and cookies of your computer. And there are times that it is the internet connection, if there are so many connections in a company who're using the internet the server loads pages slowly.

but try to clear the cache and cookies of your computer.

hope this helps! please rate! thanks!

Cant access ebay

Hi deborah_lowe
If you clicked on alink given by someone, it is possible to get the error.
If you actually typed the address you should get the website unless someone has barred the site. If it was working earlier and you are the only user , then this barring would not have happened.
Try again by typing the address.
Good luck

EBay won't load

ebay is currently experimenting with a beta version of their site and are having obvious issues. They are not going to admit they are having a problem, but, they are having problems. Major changes have occurred at ebay in the past six months. Meg Whitman has retired as of Mar. '08. She was running the show for the past 10 years. The leadership doesn't seem to have a clue. Point of fact: Current ebay ceo and founder Pierre Omidyar in he's limited common sense, has now decreed that buyers must have a near perfect rating to bid on items, this is absurd. This is the kind of stuff that is deteriorating ebay. Yes, they are the biggest, however, if they don't right their ship they are going to lose millions of users and create an opening for a competing auction service to take over their market share, which is dwindling everyday. Patience is my only suggestion.
