From time to time the site may crash. If it does, it will be momentary and the customer can then refresh their web browser page.

If the crash happens whilst the order is taking place, the order processing will stop and the customer will need to attempt to make payment again. The online support team will be aware of any crashes on the system. We can see this information in the administration area of the website. If a total crash happens or the site needs to come down for a period of time for maintenance, then a replacement message will be shown directing trade customers to alternative methods of order placement or for them to wait until the site is available again for use, this message would also indicate how long the outage is likely to be.
