System Outage - We're Back Up!

The stores platform had a system wide outage that took us down last night, between around 6pm and 10:30pm (EST) last night. We had to drop our planned updates last night in order to work to get everything back up and running.

If you hit us up last night to do a little Anime shopping and could not get on the site, I'm sorry about that. Everything is back up and running now 100%. :-)

UPDATE: The service interruption was caused by a sophisticated DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack against a small number of merchants hosted on the Merchant Solutions platform. Upon recognition of the attack, we took immediate action to prevent continued impact to a broader population of Merchant Solutions accounts.
