customers cant check out
Customers experiencing check out button not working. They cannot check out
Hi nitro – that sounds like an urgent bug – unfortunately without knowing what website your talking about we can’t investigate it. Could you please urgently contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone us 0508 932 748 with that info so they can investigate
Thanks nitro, thats helpful info.
So your hosts file is basically the one you can download from here?:
I imagine its probably been blocked by our spam filter, since I assume it contains a lot of very spamming links (that's what its trying to block). But unless you've added anything new we should be able to replicate the problem with the winhelp2002 one. One last thing to check, is your hosts file up to date with the winhelp one?
thought I would give you an update, I uninstalled my host list, in spite of there being no google references on it.
The websites work when the host list is deleted.
That being said, I wont be giving up my host list nor will anyone who uses them instead of an ad blocker.
I am still unsuccessful in sending you a copy of my host list, however you can view what it looked like "winhelp2002"
that will show a load of google on it..I delete those references, apart from that its pretty much the same
I have tried twice today to send you that host list but the emails keep coming back I sent them to email@example.com
my host list is hideously long but am happy to send it to you if you want to have a look...Dont think Id be able to post it on here though would be too long ( there are a lot of sex sites in teh world lol)
Should I flick it through to the support email addy that you have?
Im not a tech so I may have missed something on it, although anything that had been on it that related to google got cleaned out
sorry about the three posts in a row..I keep thinking of things after I have posted
forgot to mention clicking on the phrase : shopping cart is dead as a dodo..if I use a vpn proxy I can add things to cart and then get to the shopping cart...but it has no ordered items in it.
Im at the stage now where I dont mind not being able to buy from the companies...the desire to figure out why only two wesbites in the world wont let me checkout has taken over :P
As I mentioned other sites using zeald that use a different style/template..the shopping cart function works fine...just this particular template..doesnt seem to work for some of us
nope cleaning out host files . turning off firewalls, changing ISP's doesnt work
i have my own website so dont have google anything blocked
those screenshots were when i was with telecom..the last two weeks i have been with orcon...I was able to access site's checkout only twice..all i really hav eon my host lists are sex sites anyway LOL
i added zeald and gonative as trusted sites and have security so low you could happily hack me all day..and still checkout button is dead again..its quite weird
That said, if your committed to your hosts file, I certainly would like to try and make it work, and I imagine this is a bug we could fix if we could replicate it - especially as it seems a fairly commonly used technique
Right I see, knowing the sites involved gives us something to look into.
I've hunted down the trademe message board your alluding to, assume you mean this:
Something I've just tried which may help is to upgrade the analytics code that site uses to the latest version. Give it a go and see if that's helped.
As a workaround, one thing you could try - after clicking "Add to cart" - ignore any errors it gives, but just click the link to the shopping cart in top right - that takes you to the "old school" cart. From what your describing I think that probably the item is being added to the cart, but its then failing when it tries to display it to you.
Jonathon Zim, I have done that more than once in the last 6 months.
Let me clarify it is not my website.
It is a website I used to be able to buy from until they updated their site and use that drop down template. the website apparently still gets orders...so they dont care...what I do know ( and I put this to the test) is that 3 out of 7 people throughout NZ cannot check out..and it doesnt matter what OS, what Firewall etc...in the last two weeks I have been able to proceed to the check out twice..and the other 150+ times not been able too ( 20+ in the last two days alone)
It was blamed by others ( zeald incl) that It was because my ISP was Telecom..well the last two weeks I have been with Orcon..
so I figured if I just asked a "blanket" question then someone may know what the trick is..even with the lowest possible security settings in IE internet options and NO firewall..and having the website as a trusted site etc...checkout button does nothing apart from two times when it did seem to work.
as a result I have to import my items from USA and the website concerned has missed out on about 3k of sales.
On their facebook page there was another person commenting that they couldnt checkout either..but I note that the comment has been removed off teh page.
another one of your websites is also affected..again using the drop down menu..any of your sites that dont use the dropdown menu set up work fine
one person after trying a few things ( trademe computing messsageboard) said it seemed to be a routing issue..the message "not defined" came up on his computer all the time
