Minor Fixes Made

A few minor fixes have been made to the site.

  • (Update) Subscriptions and orders are now viewed in a scroll-able table (left to right) when the screen size is too small for it to fit. This allows subscriptions to be cancelled properly now, since the button was hidden out of view on the table.
  • (Fix) Updated PayPal IPN to fix the out of sync error we have encountered.

If you have any problems viewing information on our site, such as a PayPal order not appearing on My Account but can be seen on PayPal.com, contact us immediately!

As for the invalid shipping error during checkout. Unfortunately we have no news as of yet. Rest assured, our service providers are looking onto a fix, as this turned out to be a compatibility issue between 2 crucial plugins we use. Without them, our site wouldn’t function like we want to. Until then, we’ll continue using a substitute to allow potential subscribers to order the monthly PokeCrates without the subscription!

Invalid Shipping Error During Checkout

We are aware of this issue. We understand it is preventing orders and sincerely apologize. Please stay patient while we work with our service provider to find out exactly why this issue is occurring. We’ll post an update on our website when a solution has been found.

This error only occurs during checkout with the PokeCrate subscription sign up, and has become a recent issue. We suspect it to be and update issue.

Hello everyone.

Great news, we’ve finally activated the PayPal checkout gateway! Subscriptions and regular orders can now be payed via PayPal.

Also, due to rising shipping costs, the shipping fee for subscriptions have been raised one dollar. So the new shipping charges are $5 per month now for US subscriptions, and $16 USD per month for international subscriptions. This change will only effect new, or renewed, subscriptions. All existing subscriptions are locked in on the original shipping charge. Thank you for understanding.
