If it will put your mind at rest a little more i have used Amazon on numerous occasions, never had a problem and the response is very timely.

Amazon will not let me "add to cart" which is strange, their customer service guy said the is something wrong with my PC?????????. I think not.
Found a different source.

cookie settings need lowered in your browser most likely.

I shopped with amazon for the first time this week. The item I bought was the cheapest I found it, and it arrived within 48hrs of the order. ordered on a thurs evening and recieved sat morning. How can ya beat service like that?

Setting up the account and using my Visa was as easy as reciting the alphabet.

Leave the box marked "allow cookies" empty and put the URL of Amazon's cookies into your whitelist. This is found by selecting Exceptions. Allow creates a whitelist entry, Allow for Session creates a greylist entry and Block obviously creates a blacklist entry for those times when you may have cookies enabled and what to avoid certain cookies.

Virtually all e-commerce sites require cookies for the purchase process.

Agree totally with SG Atlantis, Amazon is a great company to deal with, prompt delivery (usually 24-48 hours)and usually the cheapest. I have dealt with them for several years with no problems at all.
