eBay reported on 16Aug at 08:33:47 that description search indexing
is running over 24 hours behind. They hope to get it more current
by late evening 16 Aug. Reports on the OAI boards as of this
printing are still showing that description listings continue to be
over 24 hours behind. TAG recommends that you track when your
auctions appear in description search and if you feel your auctions
were negatively impacted by these problems request refunds from
the form at http://cgi3.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?
Send -
* The item number(s) of the ended auction(s)
* The specific fee(s) charged for them
* Your seller's email address or User ID
* The phrase, GIVE CREDIT in the Subject line
This can also be accessed from
If they deny credit DO NOT GIVE UP. Continue to send credit
requests, and also email supp-@e.... It has taken some
folks a dozen requests to get the refunds, but they DID get them.
