Http 403 Forbidden Error
« on: July 25, 2014, 07:05:12 PM »
Have not tried to buy from primary market for a while, focusing on Folio only. Yesterday 9:00pm decided to look into primary market and tried to add a loan to order using /data/portfolio screen scrapping link. I am surprised that I consistently got 403 Forbidden error starting 9:00 until around 9:30pm.
Hats off to LC for blocking screen scrapers, however, I am very curious to know from a technical point how LC know I am screen scrapping since browsing loans from browsers works at the same time

There are many reasons for HTTP 403 error message -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_403

You might have used an old link.

This link works for me:
https://www.lendingclub.com/browse/addToPortfolio.action?loan_id=xxxxxxxxxx&loan_amount=nn

Thanks. The link that I use to add order is https://www.lendingclub.com/data/portfolio?method=addToPortfolioNew&rnd=1406582400982
It works in other times except peaking feeding time, e.g., 10 minutes after loan release clock.
