How do I get rid of the annoying "switch to mobile site" pop up that keeps popping up on my iPad?

I started getting an annoying "switch to mobile site" pop up on my eBay today. It pops up with every page change. I HATE the mobile site page and have been using the classic page on my iPad for over a year. This started today and it is annoying as hell. I have to close this black strip ever time I look at a page. Is there a fix? also why do you make it so hard to talk to someone live instead of running them in circles. Amazon has a number you can call and they will call you back or either you can call them and wait.

Go to "tell us what you think" on the bottom left of an ebay page. In the comment section tell them how stupid the pop-up is and click submit. Then go back to previous page and click submit again and then do it again. I just did it for an hour straight. I'm kind of getting the hang of it, think I will do it for 2 hours tomorrow. How many pop-ups can you send Ebay?

I agree. I prefer the desktop site on my iPhone. I just like the additional information provided. Hope it goes away like yesterday's news.

RE: *** SWITCH TO MOBILE SITE ***. *** SWITCH TO MOBILE SITE ***.

I wrote them the following. I wish I knew how to code a way to just keep looping this to them 24 x 7 x 365

PLEASE FIRE THE CODERS and THE DEPARTMENT HEAD.

"WHO's brilliant idea,was it to code in WITHOUT an OPTION to flag on/off the "Switch to Mobile Site ?

I mean GALACTILY and COLLECTIVELY STUPID, to have this "MORE THAN ANNOYING, MOSTLY, SOME OF THE WORST CODING EVER IMPLEMENTED"

Get rid of it NOW ! We und users (Buyers/Sellers) are the ONLY reason EBAY exists. Or has your ignorant and condescending Board of Directors, Officers, Coders, Management, and everyone FORGOTTEN that WE pay your salaries ?

Man, you're so friggin' stupid, it's unreal......

Totally agree, hope they get rid of the pop up and give an option to to it up in my ebay pages. I already tried to use the ebay ap and it is just too difficult, it also keeps ringing next day yesterday's bids, totally annoying.

I have posted this question twice already.  You would have to be a complete idiot to not know there is a mobile site.  Hopefully it will go away soon.

I prefer the classic site also. The pop up is very annoying and distracting! I'm smart enough to know how to switch if I want to, without the constant prompting!

If it helps, add me to the list of disgruntled users..
Does anyone know if complaining here will do any good?
Does eBay look at or care about members wishes?

 The silly thing keeps popping up here as I try to figure out how to kill it.   I believe it is stalking all tablet user who refuse to be "mobile".    

 

Please Ebay kill it before it  destroys our will to shop.

Add me to the list of complaints. Ebay really needs to quit changing things. Most people know how to go to the mobile site if that is what they wanted in the first place. Work on improving the app and maybe more people will use it!

When you do get someone on the phone they are usually clueless anyway, so don't hold your breath for that...
