Nolo no go?

2006-08-16 00:28:52.587414+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

We want to order some books from Nolo Press, we get to put 'em in our "shopping cart", we go to checkout, and get "internal server error". Huh, kinda weird, but not unheard of, so we wait a day, try again. Same thing. So we wait longer, and try from several different machines. Same thing.

I'm not sure what they're doing wrong, but they're making it hard to buy their product. Charlene just called their phone number to do it the old fashioned way.

If you heard the horror stories I hear regarding website e-commerce, shopping carts, It's both an opportunity, but also some of the worst web and business horror stories I have ever heard. I've almost given up.. I have a couple of success stories, but most of the time it's just an absolute mess. I'd love to re-write "CybrMall" with what I know now.. I've blown insane amounts of time building it, modding it..

I just don't want to have to deal with the end-users.
