December, 2015

Dec, 17: RESOLVED - We successfully increased our capacity during these holidays to better handle your volumes.

We're working hard to sort this out ASAP. We appreciate your patience and understanding!

Dec, 03: RESOLVED - We're going through a shortage of workers due holidays in some of our worker's country of origin. This may result in higher than usual solve times/rejections at certain sporadic moments, particularly at morning/afternoon hours (GMT-4). Please, bare with us while we work hard on increasing our capacity - we're taking all necessary measures to do so ASAP. We appreciate your patience and understanding!

We're working hard to have this solved ASAP (it's our No.1 priority) and estimate we'll have a solution for this within the next 48hrs. We appreciate your patience and understanding! Please, feel free to contact Support if you need additional assistance.
