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)

I'm seeing an influx in reports in the eBay community from sellers who are unable to create listings due to a technical issue.  I've seen no announcements or engagement from eBay staff on what appears to be a widespread ongoing technical problem.

Just a few of the posts from the community:

signin.ebay.com refused to connect.

Like everyone else, when I click on “Create Listing” I’m getting an error message that says: signin.ebay.com refused to connect This is pretty bad. The only workaround I’ve found is to SIGN OUT of ebay, then SIGN BACK IN. Then you should be able to create your listing. Granted, this is a terribl…

Still unable to list an item for sale!
I contacted an Ebay customer service rep at 11:40AM CT today and still now at 1:50PM CT I am unable to connect on their website to list an item for sale. According to the customer service rep, Ebay has an internal problem right now and their IT department is working to correct it.

Ebay says the problem should be fixed within 72 hrs. I wondered who screwed this up.

List an Item Not Working
There are now several posts saying they are having difficulty ‘listing an item’ today. I am just getting the ‘twirling circle’ perpetually with no connection. All other eBay systems seem okay. Probably just locked solid with traffic due to the capped seller fees offer this weekend. Very annoying.
Unable To Create New Listings
This morning I’ve been trying to list new items, but get this error when I go to “create a listing” : “signin.ebay.com refused to connect” Hoping this is fixed soon. I had today planned for adding new listings.
