2 consecutive missed snipes

Posted: Nov 10 2009 03:00 AM

I am in Victoria Australia, I have missed two consecutive items one on ebay USA the other on ebay Australia. On both occassions no snipe has been placed. Both my bods were well above the winning bids. A certificate error is also comming up indicating that parts of the site may be insecure. What is going on?

I had the exact same situation and have the same security concerns

What's up?

Don't worry about the security certificate. It is because we moved to a different IP address, you just have to click ACCEPT. You can also VIEW the certificate to make sure it is for one of the subdomains.

On the snipes I will check. I know moving the machines it takes time for the DNS (directory) to update, usually about 24 hours, but it should not affect snipes.

I set a snipe for Ebay item #120488386899 in the amount of $44. It subsequently sold for $15. I checked, and the seller didn't end the auction early. The snipe shows up on my Bidslammer summary page as $44 with the sole other bid the winning $15 bid. What's up?

We did a database upgrade as part of an overall upgrade to increase our server capacity. There was an unexpected short lapse in service during the switch. The problem has been resolved and snipes are executing properly.

The security warning is also due to our upgrade. As our entire site runs in secure mode (HTTPS), any change in our server configuration will throw up a warning in your browser. A change in our ip address caused that warning. That has also been resolved - you shouldn't see that warning again.
