UPDATE 6-28-21 - eBay says the issue has been resolved as of 12:39 PM Pacific.
eBay posted the following notice earlier:
What is it?
Some members are reporting that they are unable to list new items or list from templates, receiving an error that states, "signin.ebay.com refused to connect".
Is there a workaround?
Some have reported that signing out and back in allows them to proceed without the error.
What should I do if I'm impacted?
If you find the workaround ineffective please contact Customer Support and request your account be added to the open ticket number ALERT12969. Please be prepared to provide the following:
The user id encountering the error
The full URL address of the error page
Screenshot of the issue (if contacting by social media)
