eBay being buggy as usual

So I'm trying to list an item on eBay, and it keeps coming up with an error.

I tried eBay chat support, and they said the problem is on their end, and to wait 24 hours and try again.

Is this likely a generic, canned answer?

The fact that eBay is a mess of a website, and always has been, is no secret (inconsistent and different looking/feeling pages, conflicting information, having to constantly re-enter the same information, etc.). But I'd expect it to at least be reliable enough when it comes to basic functionality. Apparently, that's too much to ask for, though.

Most big companies don't really have actual real tech support anymore these days. Chances are you were talking to a bot (or a human overseas that may as well be a bot) that was just looking for keywords. If enough people had support sessions with same keywords it might trigger an event for a human to actually look into it though.
