I've listed two items today, and neither has shown-up in their respective category for hours and aren't searchable. They do show in "My ebay", have auction numbers, appear in my Auctiva store and window.
After several hours, I contacted ebay at Live Help and they suggested it was due to several hour interval between "indexing runs", but it's now been over 6 hours for the first item before it FINALLY showed. Live Help also got very weird and defensive (to the extreme) when I mentioned the submission had been done through Auctiva. I got an uninterrupted string of messages (canned) about not taking responsibility for 3rd party "problems", etc.
Anyone else noticing their auctions aren't getting completely processed for hours? I'm seeing competitors using the ebay lister have items show in minutes. This is NOT typical, so very concerned about the implications of ebay delaying processing of 3rd party listings.
Auctiva guys, you're welcome to comment. I'm only bewildered due to the attitude displayed at the meer mention of Auctiva.
