Apologies if this shouldnt be here. Apologies for the vitriol...
Im just wondering if anyone doesnt suffer a lot of mental anguish trying to purchase vouchers from Oracle.

Im guessing people from the States or EU potentially can pay through credit card, but thats just half of the issue, which ive sort of gone through for more than a decade even with Sun in Malaysia, never was anyone able to pay directly through electronic means,... only through cheque or a PO, what are we in the stone ages? Sigh

The last time i bought any vouchers (SCEA) was through a Training affiliate which was not exempt from ****ups either. Catching wind of the 50% off i thought yeah why not get my Solaris cert and finally upgrade my Java 5 cert to Java11 and get this new fangled JEE7 cert...
I dont believe how BAD the whole Ajax/JSF(?) form experience was, as i tried refreshing the page because the submits wouldnt work, my cart kept going empty AND subsequently kept refetching from some server side session cache and then empty (i was buying 5 vouchers.....), i literally just wanted to punch some software engineer's/managers face.... ugh

sigh AND after all of that i still have to 'In approximately 1-2 business days, you'll receive an email with the subject line "Your Oracle University Order Has Been Received."'

Incidentally, recently i also bought vouchers from Datastax it was all smooth sailing no fuss, no vitriol, no desire to strangle anyone

I think you would have to complain to Oracle.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
