Takealot downtime frustrates users

Takealot has been experiencing intermittent problems today, frustrating users who are trying to purchase some of the retailer’s “Takealot Tuesday” deals.

The Takealot website problems started on Tuesday morning, shortly after the company launched its “Takealot Tuesday” deals.

“Heavy traffic might cause some page loading issues. Please bear with us and continue to refresh in 30 seconds. Deals this hot are worth the wait,” Takealot said.

Takealot apologised for the website problems, saying that it was “working hard to get it back up and running”.

Some users reported that it was only the desktop website which was experiencing problems, and that the Takealot mobile site and the Takealot app were not affected.
