    can't bid on ebay


    ok this is a good one. it seems for some reason i can place any bids on ebay but i can do buy it now and offers that get accepted, but no bids. i have 2 pc's and neither one will allow bids but my phone will.

    does anyone have some magic fix? i have pop up blocker ,abp,u block origin and adblock ultimate running but i turned them off rebooted and i still get the same results. i can email sellers without any issues.

    it may be an ebay thing but before i call them tomorrow i figured i would ask here just in case one of you guys had that happen.

    it may be the modem and i may have to see if i can reset the ip address but before i go thru all that hassle again maybe i have a setting that is connected to both pc's it may even be thru chrome and i may have to remove chrome and reload it. but?
    thanks OS is 21h2 19044.2604

    Did you try to delete eBay's cookies from your computer?
    Maybe that website's cookies got corrupt on your computer somehow.


    You use Google Chrome?
    Go here: chrome://settings/content/all?search=cookies
    Search for eBay, and delete its cookies.

    Log back into eBay, and try things out.

    i logged out of ebay and then back in and the same thing. i cn buy it now but now bid. so i will ge back into chrome and make sure all cookies are deleted and try again. i did turn off all the extentions and it still happened.

    - - - Updated - - -

    ok i went back into chrome and deleted all the history and cookies but for the passwords and it still is doing this. i will see if i can use windows browser edge and see if that lets me bid and let you guys know. it could be a chrome thing

    ok i just tried edge and i get the something. so maybe ebay has me shut down because of some feedback issue or something. i do not give out feedback anymore unless i get feedback because all i have to do as a buyer is pay and i should get feedback. but now sellers will not even give feedback to people that pay in 2 minutes. so i may have to call ebay and see if they locked me out of bidding. thanks

    Hi, I apologize, it's a little difficult for me to understand what you're typing in your last post. I'm sure you can figure things out. contact ebay or something, like you said, see what they say.

    sorry i may have been a bit confusing. anyway it has to be something in windows. as i got it to go and this is what i did.

    on the kitchen pc i deleted chrome and i still had the issue so i deleted chrome again and then i did a complete restore and kept my files. and then used edge to see if i could get into bidding on ebay and i could so i reinstalled chrome and i got into ebay and could bid. so i added on at a time popup blocker it worked then ad block plus and it worked then u block it worked and then ad block ultimate and it worked.

    so then i went to the living room pc and it failed so i deleted chrome started the pc and installed chrome and if failed i got the blank page for bid. it failed in edge as well so i have not yet did a reset on that pc but i bet later tonight when i reset it it will work.

    i'm telling you every time i get some sorry update for windows i get some issues and have to do a complete reset. so i have to go into settings and turn off automatic updates i guess, i'm getting tired of this. this is the 3rd time in a month i have had to reset windows due to some updates.

    anyway on this pc i'm replying with it works. i messed 2 auctions on ebay because of this issue. anyway thanks for the help so i figure after i do the reset on the other pc it will be fine again thanks for the help and ideas

    I see. Okay I can understand a little bit better now. I found this:
    7 Ways to Stop Windows Update in Windows 10

    Scroll down to number 4. You can pause Windows Update from installing anything, apparently a way to pause for up to a year. You got Windows 10 Pro? If you have Windows 10 Home, you can access the Group Policy Editor with these instructions:
    How to Access the Group Policy Editor in Windows Home

    And temporarlily pause updates for a while...

    ...just some ideas, if you are 100% sure that the updates are messing things up...

    I find it a little strange how the updates affect Google Chrome.



    One other workaround is if you want to temporarily use a different browser for eBay, in general, until someone or something happens that causes everything to work the way it should.

    i can't say for sure but i got updates 3 day ago and then issues. the same last week and the week before that. i guess i will have to jot down what updates i get and then delete them one at a time if i get issues again to see what one are giving me fits.
