Ordering a phone with Paybright financing and not getting a confirmation?

I ordered an iphone and used paybright to pay. I received the confirmation email from paybright saying "thank you for choosing paybright... Fizz has processed your order and your payment plan has been confirmed".

I did not get an email confirmation from Fizz nor do I see it in my order history. I find this odd as it isn't the first time I order a phone using Fizz. In the chat feature, I am told that "I looked over your account and I see that the purchase of the phone, on our end at least, has been cancelled." Obviously this is strange since I didn't cancel my purchase that I just made. When pressed for more information, i.e. I just got a loan for this thing, what happened? I am told to contact Paybright. When I ask for more information about the cancellation, I am told, the site is under maintenance and they don't have access to their tools? I am told again to contact Paybright, and when i ask why my order was cancelled, again, directed to paybright?

Has anyone experience a mysterious cancellation of their phone the day the order was placed? And now I have a loan with Paybright for a product I won't be receiving?

    Sometimes it can be a temporary technical difficulty and after a while it disappears and everything is back to normal. Wait a few hours or tomorrow. Change browser, clear cache and put it in private mode. Then re-enter your account to see if it's still the same situation in your order history.

    Good luck to you!

    Hi, we are users on this public forum and unfortunately cannot provide technical support. There is already a similar case but the subscriber has not returned to give us feedback.

    I can suggest you contact PayBright for more details. Also, did customer service open a ticket for you to escalate your problem to technical support? You can track your ticket in your account.

    He said he couldn't do anything since the site is down for maintenance so I guess I will try again tomorrow. I will also contact Paybright. I saw there were similar issues, but instead of looking into it, the chat support just said it was cancelled, very odd. I will update if i get anywhere.

    Had a bad experience with the phone purchase yesterday as well. There was a message "there an error, please try again later...". Tried to use a different browser, cleaned cache, cookies, etc. Nothing helped. Guess there's something with their site. Will try tomorrow.
