Reports on Down Detector have indicated that users are having difficulty accessing the Argos website.

Users have indicated problems with the website and checkout section of the site.

On Twitter, hopeful customers have been contacting the official Argos page to voice concerns.

One user wrote: “something’s wrong with your website, items in the trolly seems to disappear immediately after adding.

“Just checked on my laptop as well, same problem. I’m sure your IT guys are on it already as this is impacting all the online orders now.”

To this, the official Argos account replied that IT teams “are working on it as we speak”.

In another reply, Argos confirmed the issues and assured it is being investigated: “We have had some website issues and they are getting fixed as we speak. Sadly a few customers are getting this issue.”
