Garage Sale Start Auction Error

Hi Guys,

Im trying to start three auctions but keep getting this error:

It seems to be an Ebay API error, so does this suggest there’s an issue their end?

Any help appreciated,


this error is returned from the eBay server. It seems that their system is currently unavailable.
It should work again in the next minutes. If not, restart your Mac and try it again then.

Also, you should make sure that your network does not block the connection (Firewall, proxy server) and that you don’t use a tool that could block the network (Kaspersky, LittleSnitch, MacKeeper, HandsOff, cisco anyconnect, GlimmerBlocker or any other AdBlocker).

Regards, Kristian

Hi Kristian,

thanks for the reply ill give the MacBook a reboot once in a sec. Im at work on a terrible connection, does the API time out? i.e. if the request isn’t completed in a certain time or something?
