So we'll update soon as we figure how to proceed fairly.

Sorry about this, you can imagine how frustrating for us, the "Christmas Charlies" are printed, they're here from Burlseque, ready to post out first thing Monday and just need complete the deal with you guys.
So back with you later this afternoon.

Grateful for your understanding,

IT guy here... Ask them to show you logs or some graphs proving there's an attack because they may be BS'ing you on the DDoS. It's a convent excuse for why their load balancing didn't stand up to the task. They may be desperate in keeping your business.

Funny now that people are not hammering the site it's working. The DDoS must have just ended too huh??


Fully agree and what we were discussing here as well. Moment the cancel went out it calmed page down so we'll be looking into everything they've done and how they've explained it as none of it adds up other than they simply weren't prepared for this size traffic.

I agree with Punch. They are straight up lying to you. As an IT guy, it's easy to tell a customer something like that to get yourself off the hook. I'd hate to see you guys continually get strung along for a lot of money for crappy service

Think this should come as no surprise, the tech firm utilized today will be dismissed.

We'll be giving Shopify a chance and let's see how that goes. We'll update with day/time "Christmas Charlie" reschedules to, most likely Monday so doesn't get in the way of anyone's Thanksgiving week any more than it already did and we apologize for that guys.

Let you know soon as set to roll,

May I suggest attempting this on any day BUT Cyber Monday. Pretty sure most people don't want to spend 2.5 hours hammering a page that may or may not work while the internet is having it's biggest sale of the year. Just sayin.

Just give a specific time. Enough time has been wasted by people already.

Fair enough guys, we don't mind pushing off till Tues if that might facilitate all as the prints are ready to go so we'll being shipping them out next week regardless.

Thanks as always for the input,

Shopify should be able to handle it.
