API Delays

Last 2 days, searching for newly listed BIN items is resulting in returned results begin about 5 minutes+ (average) off from posted time. Usually, it's ~1 minute. It appears when doing a manual refresh of eBay.com shows new listings with the same delay that the API seems to be having as well. Tried a few other 3rd party apps as well to confirm ...seems consistent. Haven't seen any notices or outages....wondering if it's temporary or something more permanent.

I can confirm that this is going on, as my customers have begun complaining about the lag in posting. I have tested it on my own servers and there is a significant delay in in the API. Anyone else seeing a delay?

Same here, the delay using findItemsByKeywords and findItemsAdvanced is 5-10 minutes and this has been going on from Sept 18. eBay needs to take action ASAP

Hello ubuyfirst, This is happening because of some changes in the search platform. This is expected behavior and it is NOT a temporary change. Every user of the Finding API and site UI will experience the same delay. Regards, eBay Developer Support.
