Is Amazon down?
« on: July 12, 2021, 01:30:35 PM »
I was checking my books which hadn't had the paperback added properly, and all I get is an error message, and the bottom of page stuff.

Not only my own books, but other books as well.

Looks like the product part of Amazon has crashed.

Anyone else seeing this, or is it just me?

ETA: Happening in the Aus and UK stores as well.

I'm seeing it here in the States, too. I'm wondering if it has something to do with Vella going online. Vella will be adding a ton of new ASINs, all of which have been going to dog pages the last few days but are supposed to go live this week.

Maybe Vella just overloaded the entire system and crashed their back end?

I don't know. But it's Sunday night in Seattle, and if by "next week" for Vella they meant 12:01 am Monday morning Pacific Time, then it could be their web team is burning the midnight oil. :)

All I know is if it's not back up soon and Vella is to blame, Vella is my new favorite thing to hate.

Back up, from what I can tell, midnight Eastern time.

Back up in the States, Pacific. Gotta think it's Vella to shut the whole system worldwide off.

Could be. I'll be really interested to see if Vella goes live after midnight Pacific. My story is still going to a dog page.
