Current known issues (Updated 2012-12-12)
Below are a list of current issues that we know exist in our API and are working to resolve. We apologise for any inconvenience that they may cause and appreciate your patience in working around them.
- _Ordering a large batch of jobs and then immediately afterwards ordering the first load again (lazy-loading the order)
- may result in double charging if the job queue has not finished processing the jobs that were ordered the first time_
- Suggested workaround is to get the status of the initial order by querying using the order id or receiving a callback. If this is not possible, please try lazy loading after waiting for at least 5 minutes after the initial order.
