MobiOrder uses your email address and password set up in the User Master in Inform. Make sure the MobiOrder check box has been selected for your user account and that you are entering your case-sensitive login credentials exactly as they are entered in Inform. Also, to protect sensitive information, the site will log out a user automatically after a period of inactivity. If you are also an eCommerce user, when the system logs you out, it will redirect you to the eCommerce login page rather than the MobiOrder page. Make sure you are logging in to the MobiOrder site.
We recommend using the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Chrome to access the site. Keep in mind that security settings on these browsers may cause issues if they are set too high. IE 6 is not supported.
The order is immediately entered in Inform with the Writer specified in your Inform eCommerce Screen. Contacts set up to receive email notifications will receive an email saying that an order has been placed, along with the customer who placed the order. With the proper web permissions, the customer can review the order under the Order Info >Order Status tab of the eCommerce site.
You can change the default in File>Company>Master, Default Internet Branch Code.
First, double-check that you included all of the necessary information for the order. If your distributor requires a purchase order number and you did not enter one, the order will not go through.
Second, see if your login timed out. When you have been logged in to the site and inactive for an extended period of time, the site automatically logs you out to protect sensitive information. You can log back in and still access the Shopping Cart to complete your order.
If you are having trouble navigating the site or placing orders, it could be due to the browser that you are using. We recommend using the latest version of your web browser for online ordering. eCommerce is NOT compatible with Internet Explorer 6.

If your website was displaying correctly, but is now down, too many users may be logged in to Inform for the site to establish a connection to the database. Try having a user log out, closing your browser, and then opening the site again. We recommend that you Reserve a User License for the website. See Reserve user licenses for eCommerce
You may also try restarting your server to refresh the connection.
