seasonal madness visa verification stalling the computer

Having placed an order with an E retailer,the trnasaction compltered and card accepted the next move is/was to the Visa acceptance screen. There it has stuck with frantic re attemps to connect to that server flashing away at base of screen. So dare I move away? Will that order fail if i do? The machine has been in this state for an hour.

By the way this is being sent on another machine-just in case you are wondering

You say that the transaction was completed, but have you received a confirmation email?.

Because if you have, the deal as gone through. If you haven't, then you might need to contact the retailer and/or Visa.

If you are using a debit card or even a credit card, just log into those accounts if you can, and check to see if it as gone through to those accounts, and what is stated in new transactions (credit) or balance (debit). The reason I mention this, is because a few weeks ago, I had a similar problem, and two payments were taken out of my account. It took five days to get the overpayment returned.

With regards to CSR, I can only think of Corporate Social Responsibility, and after a Google search came up with this
