Title: Can't purchase; invalid qty value.
Post by: pulpdoctor on May 29, 2012, 11:22:35 PM
I have tried to purchase Espionage 3 but after being directed to the PayPal site, whenever I log in I get the following error message:

You have entered an invalid quantity value. A quantity value must be an integer greater than or equal to one.

I look at the qty and it is one, or more correctly 1.

I'd like to get the discounted price but can't seem to give you any money :lol:

Any thoughts?

Hi, I just tried it and it work fine. Could you try using another browser, or perhaps clear your browser cache and try again?

I knew you would suggest another browser. And I had that covered, just didn't mention it. And someday I will remember that clearing the cache solves many browser problems.

However, I cleared the cache on both Safari and Firefox and I still get the same message. I am at an educational institution that has some strange restrictions. I will try to order from home where I don't have the strange restrictions, other than no added salt.

Thanks!

OK, and you can also try the Mac App Store.

Got home and after clearing the cache I was able to complete purchase. Yah!

I prefer to buy directly instead of the App Store. As a small business owner, I always prefer to purchase goods in a manner that benefits the merchant the most. It seems to me that Apple's "cut" when software is purchased thru the App Store cuts into the developer's profit. All things being equal, I believe the software developer needs more money than Apple although I could be wrong.  :o

That's very generous of you thank you!
