eBay is currently out of action for its users, but the downtime is not because of an unexpected outage. It is instead due to "scheduled general maintenance", the company has confirmed to The Register.

That said, fans of second-hand goods cannot presently bid for a pair of old smelly shoes on the popular online tat bazaar.

The site, ebay.com at least, is instead, at time of writing, serving a "connection reset" message to visitors.

eBay told us:

“The eBay system is undergoing scheduled general maintenance which has been previously announced. During this maintenance period, certain eBay features may be intermittently unavailable or slow and we apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.”

El Reg understands that the general maintenance, which was also expected to affect its company Paypal, was supposed to happen between 23:00 hours and 01:00 Pacific Time.

It is now 01:30 in that part of the US. ®
