Why doesn't the shopping cart work?


Supported Browsers for Shopping Online

Due to recent breaches most websites such as ours that take credit cards online have upgraded our security significantly. This means that since some of the older browsers do not conform to recent Web security standards, we cannot fully support all functions of the storefront for customers using these older web browsers. This is especially true of older versions of some web browsers, especially Microsoft Internet Explorer because they do not correctly handle some standardized types of HTML security required to insure privacy of your credit card data during transmission. Here are the browser we currently support:
  • Firefox 13 or newer
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 or newer (note IE is not supported on Windows XP machines)
  • Google Chrome
  • Safari 3.0 or newer (Mac OS only)

Have You Entered Multiple Dashes or Other Unusual Characters in A Text Box or Field?

Sure it sounds crazy but here's the deal. Browser interpret one dash (-) as a dash but when you enter two (--) some browsers assume that you are entering programing code and are trying to tell it to do something. The same is true of other non alpha characters. In some cases even one character might cause a picky browser to freak. So say for example that you want to add dot dot dot (...) to your custom sign the best thing to do is type dot dot dot and add a note to us in the designer notes section calling our attention to it. And keep in mind that we will send you an order email to proof so you can write us back with any notes about this kind of thing.
