What’s the opposite of profit? Well in my case, it’s having 1shoppingcart go down once again… which means that most of my transactions cannot go through. It means that nearly every item that I sell cannot be sold at the moment!
So instead of working on improving the user experience of my customers, I’m writing this notice while I wait for it to return.

Update 3: BACK DOWN
