Now, many people think it undesirable that the net can stick data onto their machines, as there are many security and privacy implications. For this reason, browsers will include facilities to reject cookies or ask the user for permission.
So, if you reject a cookie by cancelling it, or you have cookies automatically rejected without you knowing, then the items that you have selected will not be recorded. As the shop does not get told that a cookie has been eaten, at first it will say that the item is on the order form, and later it will claim that no items are selected.
In order for these shops to work, you must have cookies enabled on your browser and you must accept the cookies that they send.
This is rectified in V1.00. With this release, WebFunds will only go online when it needs something identified by the user. In order to push it on-line, for example to check for receipts, there is a File/Connect option.
Any second payment will bounce. The value that is in each khid can only be used once. We don't consider this to be a bug, though. YMMV :))
Yes, the problem is that the calls to "grab focus" do not appear to work all the time on Windows 95 implementations of Java. We are looking for alternatives.
As an interim, the following is suggested:
There are multiple issuers in existance, each with multiple currencies.
However, WebFunds is only capable of handling one currency and issuer at a time, so when you went to buy at the YYY shop, it didn't realise that this was not going to work because you don't have that currency.
So it happily signed the payment for something it didn't have, and that bounced. WebFunds is like that - it often lets you do silly things if you insist. This is because you probably know better, it is just a program.
The real issue here is that WebFunds should have warned the user that there was insufficient funds for the purchase (which is the same as no funds). Then, you would have known what was happening, and you could have acted accordingly.
