Ordering Problems

If you have changed the quantity of an item in your basket, don’t forget to refresh afterwards. Most other problems, such as failure to accept a valid promotional code, can be solved by clearing your web browser’s cache (temporary storage). This forces the browser to update with the latest data. The method of doing this depends on the browser you are using. Internet Explorer calls these ‘Temporary Internet Files’, and they can be found in ‘Delete Browsing History’ in the Tools menu (you can elect to keep any stored passwords and cookies). Firefox offers the same facility in its Tools menu, but calls it ‘Clear Recent History’.
