Check Alerts

  2. If there are any alerts with a Red icon, click on them to view.
    1. Read the alert to see if it is an issue you can fix.
    2. Some alerts will have a link showing how to fix the issue, or a link the the specific order with a problem. Click the link to resolve the issue.

Check Your Server

If you are using a shopping cart that is self hosted, you must ensure that all the timezone settings are correct on your server or orders will be missed. This includes the server timezone, the programming language timezone, and the database timezone. When using a self hosted cart it is your responsibility to ensure these settings are correct. Here's an example of how to verify these for a cart using PHP and MySQL:
You can check your MySQL time with the following query:
  1. select now()
In linux you can run: 
  1. date
And to check php you can run (from the linux command line): 
  1. php -r "echo date('c').\"\n\";"

If these times don't all match you will either need to configure all platforms so they match, or configure them to properly convert timezones between each other.



If you are still having issues, open a support ticket explaining your issue in detail.
