    There was a delay though. The first time, I was rolling through everything pretty quickly since it was my own info and the option wasn't there (even though I looked). The second time, I was taking someone else's info so I was moving slower...about halfway through the credit card purchase, the option to either pay in full or do a payment plan popped open (above the cc info).

    For once, I agree with AB completely on this. It really was bad. thankfully I had a couple friends pull me through.

    Should it be this shocking that the system still does not work closer to perfect?

    This is the second year out of the last three that I've had to purchase GA with shuttle. Two years ago was a complete mess and it was expected - I think it was the first or second year frontgate was involved (right!?!?). This year the reddit link is ridiculous as was my experience today.

    I got in around 10:40 and selected two GA tickets, then I was prompted with an upsell window which I thought I'd take advantage of since I always purchase a poster anyway. After selecting one poster, the Selecting Tickets window came up and stayed up for the entirety of my 6 minute purchase window. Once my time was up, I was kicked out and sent back to the waiting room.

    I guess my point is to bring attention to a system that is clearly not working.....Whatever, got tickets, will probably do same thing next year....

    Waited an hour and twenty minutes, but then saw the direct links that allowed me to circumvent the entire process.

    Way to go.

    It's worse than that though, because against all odds, they actually seem to be getting worse every single year. I'm not really sure what to make of that unless their coders are some kind of nega-entities that actually lose skill and experience the more they practice.

    Anyone else not get their receipt email yet? My order went through and I've been charged. But no email still. Yes I checked the spam folder.

    Seriously though, the amazing thing is how much fail occurs every year, and they never get it right.

    This isn't rocket science, and once you solve the problems, they're pretty much solved forever.

    I was in standby starting a few minutes before 10 am PT / 1 pm ET.

    Got my GA and camping passes for weekend 2 first then my VIP and camping passes for weekend 1. Not only it was a lot more intense waiting for W1 ... It sold out with the camping pass I want. But maybe it was meant to be on what I eventually got.

    Ahhhh... Coachella! I thought it was a simple process overall. The painful part was the anxious waiting but worth it. I was in Starbucks using their fast google wi-fi and on an extended long lunch break when I did it. Had to go to the bathroom with my MacAir when the weekend 2 purchase screen showed up! Lol

    I go with a group of around 60 people every year. We were all logged in about 3 minutes before 10am PST.

    About 20 members of our group are ticketless. We have NEVER had this happen. This was really really bad.

    I got my ticket but only by the grace of god. I wisely decided to go for GA+Shuttle when I finally got in, just on a whim . . . then I was refreshing car camping over and over . . . and over . . . I literally had 10 seconds left by the time I got to checkout, and I thanked Xenu for the fact I got an A in highschool when I took typing, cuz that shit came back FAST on this keyboard.

    It was bad . . . really dampening my coachella vibes right now. I've been going for 5 years . . . not FOREVER . . . but they should do something for people who go every year, like a couple of other fests do.

    I feel really bad for my mates who are out a ticket this year.

    And even worse, we all camp, but some of us had to ditch a car camping pass because they seem to be sold out. Big bummer.

    Very messy start to 2015

    I think Frontgate did a good job of HIDING THAT FUCKING PAYMENT PLAN OPTION.
    I figured it out, but it sounds like a lot of people had trouble finding it.
    It was defaulted at "pay in full" - sneaky, sneaky.
    Plus that damn 6 minute timer giving you anxiety, so you rush through it.
    Way to get all of peoples' money at once… LAME.

    Easily the worst presale for any ticketed event I have ever had to deal with. Front Gate is the worst.

    I am going to start a rumor now that the folks who worked on the AHCA website also worked on Front Gate's.

    That is all.
