I am a relatively new user of the auctiva system and love what they have to offer. However I am very limited on time available to spend setting up my listings on ebay. I have noticed an extremely slow system with trying to edit and schedule my listings as well as my store window not loading today. I have had pictures not loading a couple times in past and have had customers who were unable to check out through auctivas checkout as well. I too hate to complain about a free service. This auctiva is a wonderful idea with a lot of potential. If I would have to pay a small fee for a more stable environment I would be happy to do so. I am only posting this because I know how important it is for the owners of auctiva to know what the issues are so they can be addressed.
My main concern with all of this is whether auctiva is going to be able to keep up with the christmas season traffic. Are the problems programming issues or are the servers unable to handle the loads put on it by the busy ebay system? I have come to believe it would be the latter of the two as I notice much slower loading in evenings and nearly impossible usage on busy nights such as Sundays. I have had to move my checkout services back into ebay so as to prevent unhappy customers and after the issue with my pictures not showing up on my listings, I have been tossing around the idea of moving all picture services back to ebay also.
