Maplin UK not working correctly during tech sale

Updated on

While Maplin.co.uk isn’t down today, the website reports it’s having problems with server connections and is not working like they should be. The server issues are most likely due to extra demand on a busy Saturday, which also features a technology sale with clearance offers visible from the homepage.

The message Maplin UK have on their homepage can be seen in the screenshot below. In a nutshell, they state “We are currently experiencing technical issues with connectivity and load times to our website, we are working hard to resolve these issues and we will post updates with progress”.

We did receive some feedback from Product Reviews readers in relation to the UK website, which offers a range of products for sale online. These include CCTV systems, routers, computer hardware, technology toys, and more.

It’s not clear how long the 50 percent off sale has been running, but trying to view those pages at this time might be hard for some of you. The UK Maplin site will work fine one moment, then the next page goes really slow. The fact that Maplin UK is not working correctly in this way reveals high traffic is the likely cause.

Have you had any problems accessing Maplin UK today? Did you go there for the half price sale?
