Online auction site eBay apparently has gone down again for some users in the UK and worldwide, for the 10th time this year. eBay UK problems appear to have hit both the desktop site and mobile apps.

"We are investigating reports that certain eBay features are intermittently unavailable or slow and we apologise for any inconvenience caused," eBay announced in a statement.

"Today's outage marks the largest outage for Ebay users in the UK for this year, both in terms of duration of the problems and the number of users that are impacted," said Tom Sanders, co-founder of Downdetector.co.uk. "The persistent site problems that Ebay UK is suffering indicate that Ebay is unable to fix the computer problems that are causing these outages."

The previous largest eBay outage was set on Saturday June 28, which lasted less than one hour. eBay.com's website also experienced problems in late July and was widely inaccessible on July 31st, but the company downplayed the incident, first ignoring reports and then finally denying it was an outage on its Systems Announcement board.
