Default Ebay Search Engine Malfunction Gets It Into Trouble Again

September 22, 2008 (IDG News Service) A technical problem that left an undisclosed number of products out of the search engine index on eBay Inc.'s Web site has now been fixed, according to the e-commerce company, which said it plans to issue credits to affected merchants.

The indexing snafu started last Wednesday morning, but eBay didn't acknowledge it until late Friday. The company then declared the problem solved at about 3 a.m. EDT today. It advised sellers not to relist affected items but instead to create new listings for those goods.

On its official Systems Announcements page, eBay said it would issue the promised credits this week. "Please be assured it is not necessary to contact us; we will be issuing these credits automatically," the company added.

EBay didn't immediately respond to a request for comment on the number of products and merchants that were affected by the problem.

The company has been testing what it calls a "new search experience" in recent months, in an effort to make it easier for buyers to find products on the eBay site. Two weeks ago, it announced plans to start directing more traffic to the revamped search engine.

But some sellers have been complaining about the new software in messages posted on an official eBay discussion forum devoted to search-related issues

eBay fixes search-engine malfunction that omitted products from index

"In eBay's latest FAQ, they explain that sellers (for the good of the buyers) will no longer be allowed to accept checks or money orders as payment. They can take electronic payments only. So, will Google Checkout, Checkout by Amazon or Amazon Flexible Payment be allowed? No, says eBay: 'Google's and Amazon's products and services compete with eBay on a number of levels, so we are not going to allow them on eBay.' Options are limited to PayPal, ProPay, direct credit payments to the seller, and 'payment upon pickup.' But remember, this is for our own good!"

Their new system is raking in even more fees but eBay is laying off workers and cutting service. All that money is going to a few rich executives.
