Click Frenzy started today at 7pm AEDT, but most Aussies couldn’t get onto the site even at 6:30pm, half an hour before the sale was meant to open. Now, while everything should be in full swing, frustrated users are reporting widespread 503 errors and problems with logins. Here’s what you need to know.
Twitter is rife with complaints about the site crashing, but no one really sounds surprised. The official Click Frenzy account has addressed concerns and asked users for patience while they work on the site.
Hi Click Frenzy Shoppers,

After this many sales you’d think they’d be ready for this incoming rush, however.
With this year’s flash deals requiring users to check a website notification and answer a quiz question to purchase, it’ll be interesting to see how that system holds up to the strain.
