PSA: It looks like Instagram has a major bug. (We're halting IG transfers until it's fixed) - UPDATE: IT'S FIXED!

Since yesterday we encountered a problem with our checkout tickets that involved the transfer of Instagram accounts. Users weren’t able to log in via the official app, despite being able to log in from a browser. This is the error we were greeted with:

It looks like this is wide spread, as a lot of people are reporting the same on downdetector.com

Until this is fixed, we will put all open Instagram tickets on hold, sorry!

Good news. The new Instagram update apparently fixes this problem. Please visit your App Store/Google Play to see if an update is available for your country yet. If not, no worries, it will come.

For this reason, I believe that it’s safe to resume Instagram transactions! Back to normal, folks.
