    My password does contain characters like & and % if that matters any.

    Nevermind. Close this ticket. Error was due to new terms and conditions page.

    I don't know what exactly happens in your case. Try to log in manually, eBay might want you to do something special after login.

      Manually login ok, android mybidder sniper works too. I tested it with with 2.28.0 and 2.31.0 esniper versions.

    I don't have & or % in my password and successfully won 2 auctions today. As these characters have special meaning in HTML or URLs, esniper might have to replace these characters in the password with HTML entities when submitting the login form. In this case it is a bug in esniper.
    Please check if you can change your password as a workaround for the problem.
    (Maybe there are different problems that lead to similar bug reports. Additionally esniper should recognize the page title "Welcome to eBay: Sign in - Error" as a normal error instead of a bug report.)

      thank you for your answer. unfortunately, looks like problem not with password. Actually , I using my password quite a lot time ,week or two ago I used esniper without errors, problems with login begining only 2 days ago, for test purpose i changed my password, with only alphabetical chars, and result same - login failed

        Solved. I found cause of problem. I have to sign new "User Agreement", and afterwards esniper can login without problem. My home ebay is ebay.de, and when I connect manualiy to ebay.de, I can connect , and no prompt to sign new "User Agreement" . Today I connect to ebay.com manually, and I got "User Agreement" page, after accepting it, esniper connect, no problem. PS: Also I tried before in config file - loginHost = signin.ebay.co.uk and signin.ebay.de , but it not worked for me
