I can still see my wc_cart_hash_…. in my browser local Storage after getting that far with the order. But page still says not allowed. 405 Error.
To those ppl who said crypto payment options not available, you should be thankful about that. You’d never get a refund if anything crashed in the process.(edited)
Im an IT by profession, they did know about this beforehand. Things to consider is why even if they had load put a coupon for it and WHO leaked it? Do you find it as a professional behavour? because I mostly think they do it on purpose for a reason I cann’t think of now. As for database connections, a connection is close in less than 5ms so that is not an excuse.

If you are knowledgeable about how modern sites work, you could see how things were failing and do retries in the browser without refreshing. I was stuck on the checkout for a v. long time like most others. Also the returning from callback from payment was also failing, so that was pretty spooky tbh @ longap team.

Let’s be realistic. The page crashed due to bot traffic. The coupon thing was not bot protection. Probably a lot of the miners went to bots. That is not a bad thing for LongAP as they made their revenue. You can’t be protect a sale from bots 100%. But please, and I sincerely mean it, invest in better infrastructure or get a proper shop solution next time.
THE COUPON SYSTEM DID NOT WORK FOR MANY PEOPLE
UK coupon not work and vat not removed?

Their practices stated in art. 3 of the TOS, and what they did last minute (raising the price etc) are not conform with art. VI.82 e.v. WER (I’m searching for the European law regarding this matter)
