Amazon payments keep failing, nooooo

MkilbrideMkilbride Member UncommonPosts: 643

ALot of people are reporting being unable to pledge, issues with Amazon. MJ contacted KS and KS contacted Amazon and they acknowledged the problem.

 

It seems to go through periods of being fixed to being broken again. Really nooooot cool. I hope KS reinburses them some time because of this, it means our "Last burst" is being seriously hurt by people who want to pledge. You try to pledge, and it tells you No", alot of people get turned off.

    If you are lucky it might screw over those who will try to pull out of the massive pledges at the last minute.
  • I think if someone changed their mind on the big pledges they'd have already done so. Kind of risky not to given how big some of those pledges can be :p

    Not really, dangerous to post on this forum, but if you can't pay your pledge, you're fine. Simply put, if you pledge 10,000$ and only have 2,000$, you don't have to pay anything. You simply withdraw your pledge.

    You certainly wouldn't leave it until the last few mins but if you can't find an Internet connection to save yourself 10k within say, 12hrs you must live somewhere in Northern Canada.

    4/30/2013 Amazon Payments errors

    4/30/13, 3:00 pm: Amazon Payments is experiencing intermittent trouble as of 2:30pm. The error message seen upon pledging may read “Caller Input Exception: Caller does not have a FPS Caller Account.” We’ve contacted Amazon about the problem. Stay tuned. 

    Update 4/27/13, 3:47 pm: Pledges are all set. If you ran into any trouble, feel free to try again now. Apologies for the hassle!

    Update 4/27/13, 4:05 pm: Amazon Paymments is down again. We’re paying close attention to the situation and are terribly sorry.

     

    That, or they should wave their 5% fee if it fund by the skin of their teeth.

    I think if it funded with say 2,001,000 and a card was declined for  5000 then it still classes as funded for kickstarter.

    Pledges cannot be pulled out within the last 24 hours if they would cause the Kickstarter to fail.

    Nothing Tinfoil about this... 

    Hackers in denmark shut down the national key loggin system for 3 days with an american 10 doller server spot and a DDos spam...

    If it is done in Denmark just for 10 bucks and a laugh why not amazon... DDos is probaly the simplest and easiest way to disturb a login/transaction system and i cant see how theres anything tinfoil about that.

    Trust me, theres enough bored kids out there getting a kick out of stuff like that.

    Amazon's servers must be wilting under the pressure from the massive number of CU KS purchases...

    That's correct - even if it had 2.5 million and 1 mllion of those dollars were declined by credit card, it would still be funded. They would just get 1.5 million (well minus the fees and stuff).

    Quick then someone pledge 300k =-)

    This is not CU spam. This is a CU forum. This is something happening with Kickstarter.

     

    It's not spam if it's about CU on a CU forum.

    Backers may increase, decrease, or cancel their pledge at any time during the fundraising campaign, except that they may not cancel or reduce their pledge if the campaign is in its final 24 hours and the cancellation or reduction would drop the campaign below its goal.

     

    You are right, some people might be in for a shock in about 20hrs time

  • MkilbrideMkilbride Member UncommonPosts: 643

    You are able to avoid it.

     

    CHeck recent activity. See CU.  See other stuff you want to read. Simple.

    ok.. so by this logic, they should only allow 3 threads in any game's  forum:

    -Like

    -Hate

    -Misc.

     

    I think we are on to something!!

    It's not spam if it's about CU on a CU forum.

    Then why don't you use designated CU KS thread but create a new KS thread instead? It is a spam if someone like me clicks on recent forum activity and sees only this garbage. I'd very much love block subforum feature but until then I deem this subforum one of the worst ever. And I'm unable to avoid it.

    This is a thread about an actual issue that is happening, not generic speculation about the KS.  The project is currently being funded on kickstarter, every thread about CU is somehow going to relate to KS.  Deal with it.  You cant just bury every piece of relevant information in one thread.  It becomes a nightmare to keep track of anything.  That literally defeats the purpose of having a subforum.

    Big deal, pledge another day when its working, KS runs for a month.

    Considering the campaign is over in 42 hours, if the issue is persistent it could be very damaging leading up to the final push to get funded.

     

    Some hours are more important than others.  The Pathfinder Online KS got a couple hundred thousand dollars in "just a few hours" at the end of its run.

    Let this be a lesson folks, don't wait until the last minute.

    For anything.

    Ever.
