Payment provider downtime

Monday, September 15th, 2008

Update: This issue has now been resolved, new sign ups can be made as normal. It turns out the issue was a power outage affecting the entire area around 2Checkout's facility. Our payment solutions provide, 2checkout, has been experiencing a sustained denial of service attack over the last few days. Unfortunately this means we have been unable to take any new signups automatically during this time. If you would like to purchase any Media72 products or services please contact our sales department directly and we will be able to setup accounts manually until the 2checkout site is working again. Thankfully existing customers are not affected by this issue. We appologise for any inconvenience this has caused. On another note, we are in the process of setting up a new billing system and hope to have this up and running shortly. The new system will be a lot more flexible and easy to use and will benefit both new and existing customers.
