PayPal goes offline again

Hope no-one missed an eBay auction

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

PayPal suffered another embarrassing outage last night, and was unavailable for about four hours from 6.30pm UK time - one of the busiest times on eBay.

The preferred payment service for the tat bazaar was last unavailable for several hours in late June, which really isn't great for a payment service: particularly one which underpins time sensitive auctions.

The company blamed a network hardware failure for the problem. In June it blamed a botched upgrade. The payment provider apologised and said the problem started at 10.30am Pacific Time and was all sorted out by 3pm.

eBay paid $1.5bn for PayPal in 2002. Recent changes at the online tat bazaar have alienated a lot of smaller sellers. ®
