Yahoo Checkout Service Suffers Outages - WSJ.com

Not a happy "Cyber Monday" for some 

Yahoo Inc.'s popular e-commerce system buckled under the strain of Monday's surge in online shopping, and left some merchants disappointed and angry over lost orders.

The infrastructure behind Yahoo Merchants Solutions business was overwhelmed "by heavy holiday traffic" starting at 5:30 a.m. EST, a Yahoo spokeswoman said. As a consequence, some of the 40,000 Web sites that rely on the feature couldn't complete orders, and their customers were told to try back again.
