Registration Site FAQ
Some users have been experiencing a spinning wheel when trying to checkout. We’re aware of this problem and we’re working with the developers to resolve it. Some users have reported that refreshing the page after a minute or two allowed their orders to proceed to the credit card processing site. We apologize for any inconvenience.
